Hello Sergio, I can provide you expert perspective on the VT-RNS-PT from Omron as well as on the YESTech platforms. The VT-RNS-PT product is super complicated and difficult to understand from a programming and operation standpoint and really does not provide any inspection benefits that the YESTech or other systems provide. The programming and operation interface are much more complex and not as intuitive as other systems are and the position in the market shows it. The VT-RNS-PT is also not very well supported here in the US from a training or software standpoint. Omron has a couple of AE’s that are top notch AE’s but the product is the limiting factor. Additionally, both the training and any software updates are expensive. Other companies mentioned offer their software upgrades at no cost for the life of the system.
From a practical look into the VT-RNS-PT and a similar YESTech system, the programming time/ software/ process is much faster and cleaner with the YESTech. An assembly could take 15 to 30 min (Component dependent) to program on the YESTech with the same PCB taking 1 to 3 hours on the VT-RNS-PT. Should you wish to check Value or part orientation, the VT-RNS-PT would require additional programming where this is standard on the YESTech. From a false call observation, initially, both systems will have plenty. The YESTech model is, again, much easier to work through than the VT-RNS-PT.
Finally, YESTech manufacturers their systems in the US and Omron in Japan. Depending on where you are in the world, this may or may not be important for you. Omron in the US must purchase and then mark up each system based on where it is sold, so a system sold in the US would be more than a system sold in Mexico. If you have any technical questions or if I can help you with more information, please feel free to let me know.
Lastly, I can say that i have had a great deal of experience with both organizations and I do not feel poorly about my time at YESTech. That said, I no longer have an affiliation with either company.
