An excellent choice for demanding applications such as production lines, PCB constructions etc. The Micron® 100W soldering station offers the ultimate in controlled temperature hand soldering. Featuring key pad temperature control, this soldering station eliminates the need for changing tips to perform different soldering tasks. Features a huge temperature range from 200° to 450°C. Perfect for all manner of general purpose soldering. Includes 1mm chisel tip (T 2085). RoHS compliant.
What Is ‘Curie Point’ Heat Induction Technology? Ceramic heating technology uses a microprocessor and thermocouple to control the temperature of a soldering tip. As the temperature falls, a signal is transmitted to the microprocessor, which in turns provides more current to increase temperature. This lets the tip temperature be set at the station, but is delayed as the signal travels back to the station and increased current is sent back to the heater.
Induction heating technology in most cases does not have this long feedback loop. Here's an abridged explanation. An AC signal is sent down the handle through a coil, which induces an eddy current in a ferromagnetic heater causing an increase in the temperature. Once the heater hits its ‘Curie point’, the inductive properties of the heater change and the eddy currents are no longer induced, so heat is no longer produced. As soon as the temperature drops below that ‘Curie point’, current is once again induced and the temperature is increased until the material once again reaches its ‘Curie point’. This happens within the handpiece and maintains the tip at its ‘Curie point’, with the unique feature of never overheating. This technology does not produce any variations in peak tip temperature.
