Hello,

I'm looking to purchase a used Cyberoptic Sentry 2000 inspection machine and was looking for advise from someone who has used one.

Is this a decent unit? Can this be programmed by the operators? Any drawbacks to this unit? Any other comments would be appreciated.

Thanks, Pat

Its a bit of an old beast, it was replaced by SE 200 and is now discontinued (since 2004 I believe). Its a decent unit, but hard to achieve good repeatability on smaller deposits. Its also not reliable on small solderpaste below 20mil fine-pitch. Fairly easy to program. I'd consider the SE 200 over a Sentry, unless its been upgraded.

For expert advise on these units, go to:

Pete,

Thanks for the reply. I'll take a look at the 200 SE...
