ESD Safe 55w Fast Heating Soldering Station
This soldering station utelises RF induction to bring the tip to operating temperature in 10 seconds! Traditional Curie Point soldering irons use a separate Curie-Switch, heater and tip. There are thermocouples, varistors or other temp sensors that only complicate things. The thermal inertia with the Thermaltronics product is far lower. The system consists of the base power unit which connects to mains 240V. The soldering pencil accepts a cartridge tip (which is also the heating element) and a burn-proof silicon rubber cord. The third element in the system is the pencil iron stand. This stand features a ‘dry’-type tip cleaner which is made from machine curled brass and also a standard sulphide free tip sponge.
The tip is a 0.5mm conical tip as standard and the unit as a whole uses much lower idle power when compared to similar sized units. Ideal soldering station for repair work or the serious hobbyist or electronic enthusiast.
