Specialty Coating Systems Debuts New-Generation Omegameter SMD 650 Ionic Testing System

Oct 11, 2017

Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) announced today the launch of the Omegameter SMD 650, the next-generation, software-controlled Omegameter ionic contamination test system.

A self-contained system, the Omegameter is an industry standard for accurate, efficient and practical quality assurance testing. The system identifies the presence of ionic contamination on bare and assembled printed circuit boards and other electronic components, and provides an accurate and repeatable method for determining cleanliness on location. Additionally, the Omegameter provides immediate process control results, eliminating the need for outside laboratory testing, and verifies proper cleanliness of surfaces prior to the application of conformal coatings or potting compounds. The system complies with current industrial specifications such as ANSI/J-STD-001 and IPC-TM-650, and obsolete military specifications, e.g. MIL-STD-2000A.

The Omegameter SMD 650 features several enhancements to previous model Omegameters, including:  

• Onboard computer provides software operation

• Software monitors and records the solution temperature, replacing the need to manually measure the temperature with a thermometer.  

• Step-down feature that lowers the test cell, making it easier to load parts.

• Numerous software features, including unlimited test profiles with custom names, runtime contamination graphs, sort/filter/review historical test results and more.

The first static test system on the market, the SCS Omegameter has a long history of being an accurate, effective and practical quality assurance tool. The Omegameter SMD 650 continues this strong product legacy as the most trusted name in the industry, and the preferred choice for ionic testing using the “static test” methodology.


Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, Specialty Coating Systems offers industry-leading liquid coating systems, including spray, spin and dip coating systems, thermal and UV cure systems and ionic contamination test systems. SCS also offers world-leading Parylene conformal coating services, systems and materials with over 45 years of application experience and expertise in the medical device, electronics, automotive and military industries. With locations throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, SCS leverages its worldwide resources to meet customer needs on a global basis.
