Fully Programmable, Self-Contained Convective/Hot Air Station
The ST 925 features a self-contained convective/hot air SMT rework station that is fully programmable and can be used to remove and install surface mount components. From the front panel, the system can be used in either manual or “timed” modes. Manual mode means that the system generates heated airflow when the cycle button is pressed; when it is pressed a second time the system shuts off. “Timed” modes allow the operator to create up to 20 “Profiles” that consist of time and temperature parameters to ensure process control and repeatability. The system uses a pump to generate airflow that first passes through a heater, where it is warmed to the appropriate temperature, and then through optionally available heat-focusing nozzles that “shape” the air stream for the specific component. A user-friendly front panel interface with Digital Display allows for easy adjustment of temperature, flow rate and timing and intuitive programming and profile development. A unique adapter allows instant change out of Nozzles, without tools. Over 80 low-cost Nozzles are available for a wide variety of surface mount components.
