Convection rework is becoming increasingly important due to the prevalence of surface mount components and the difficulty in using soldering irons to remove or replace such devices. To help overcome these difficulties, Thermaltronics, a manufacturer of soldering systems using the unique “Curie Point” Technology, has released a new, digital hot air pencil with adjustable controls for air and temperature.
The unit features a 200 W heater, capable of providing a temperature range of 100˚C-450˚C and diaphragm pump, delivering 10 L/min.
Various nozzle sizes are available, from 1.5-4.0 mm in diameter, making them ideal for fine-point convection rework of surface components.
When the unit is not in use, there is a standby mode and auto cool process to cool the heating element and protect it from damage. Once the temperature has reached safe levels, the unit will power down and the LCD display will remain blank. Units are available in both 110V and 220V versions, and come standard with a one-year warranty.
