The component library and editor make it easy to create and edit new component models or custom parts. They are directly integrated in the software interface and run from there. Connecting the software to an available intranet is possible without any problems.
Programming and usability
The clearly laid out interface guides the user step by step towards his aim. There also is a detailed help menu for each function.
The smartASSISTANT monitors all user activity, gives hints and tipps and shows every error message in plain text, so it’s generally not necessary to consult the manual.
The integration into an existing network is possible without any problems.
If any components are used, that are not part of the default library, the graphic editing function is there to create a new model in just a few steps.
The integrated component library stores all data regarding the component or the placement process for it. This contains :
• Component dimensions
• Tool to use
• Adjustable vacuum sensor
• Centering mode (Laser, Vision)
• Coordination and volume of solder paste or glue dots
• Pin 1 – view and Vision control points
The library contains over 300 component models. All content items can be edited or new ones can quickly be created using the integrated graphical editor.
