PACE to Launch Low-Cost Soldering Station at IPC APEX EXPO 2018

Reading time ( words)

PACE Worldwide announces the ADS200, a new high-power, low-cost production soldering station, to be introduced at IPC APEX EXPO 2018, which will be held on February 27-March 1, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center. The ADS200 features the new TD-200 Cool-Touch Handpiece, with its sleek and ergonomic aluminum handle designed to stay cool and comfortable during continuous production soldering. Its Blue Series Tip-Heater Cartridges integrate a high-accuracy sensor with a robust heater, delivering up to 120W of power. The quick-change cartridges can be quickly swapped while hot, and achieve set temperatures instantly. Yet, the tip cartridges are less than half the price of most other cartridge style or curie point tips.

PACE's new AccuDrive temperature control technology delivers unsurpassed thermal performance and highly accurate temperatures, without the need to change tip cartridges or calibrate. Its advanced electronics provide instantaneous load sensing and on-demand power to quickly reflow solder joints at the lowest, safest temperature required, regardless of the mass of the application. Intended for extreme, multi-shift production use, the ADS200 features a rugged, all-metal design, including housing, soldering iron and tool stand. The system is intuitive and easy to operate – just power it on, set the temperature with arrow keys and start soldering.
