APEX, N.C. — The Weller DXV80 in-line desoldering pencil from Weller, which features a disposable solder trap for easy cleaning, is suitable for desoldering thru-hole components on PCBs.
The tool uses the company's patented threadless DX series desoldering tiplets, and features an 80-W heater for fast heat-up and optimized thermal recovery. Its in-line design is said to allow efficient desoldering without clogging. A delay feature lets the pump run two seconds after the desoldering cycle, ensuring the molten solder reaches the solder trap before solidifying. The pencil is suitable for a range of desoldering and SMT rework equipment. Weller is a brand of Cooper Hand Tools.
