Operation Instruction for ASE-1107 Soldering Station

A. Iron Holder.

1. Small Cleaning Sponge Dampen the small cleaning sponge with water and then squeeze it dry. Place it in one of the 4 openings of the iron holder base.

2. Add water to approximately the level as shown. The small sponge will absorb water to keep the larger sponge above it wet at all times.

Note: The large sponge may be used alone (without small sponge & water).

3. Dampen the large cleaning sponge and place it on the iron holder base.

B. Connections.

1. Connect the cord assembly go the receptacle.

2. Place the soldering iron in the iron holder.

3. Plug the power cord into a power supply. Be sure to ground the unit.

4. Turn the power switch to on. The temperature is preset at 400℃ at the Factory. The heater lamp flickers when the temperature has stabilized.

5. Press the "*" button to display the preset temperature. It will be displayed for two seconds.

C. Setting the Temperature.

1. Insert the card into the card slot in the station. The left-most digit (the 100s digit) in the display will flash. This indicates that the station is in temperature setting mode and that the 100s digit can be adjusted.

2. Select the desired value for 100s digit. Using the up or down button will change displayed value as follows:

2↔3↔4

Press the "*" button when the desired value is displayed. This will cause the middle digit (the 10s digit) in the display begin flashing.

3. Select the desired value for the 10s digit. Using the "up" or "down buttons will change the displayed value as shown below:

0↔1↔2↔3↔4↔5↔6↔7↔8↔9↔0

Press the "*" button. The right (the 1s digit) will then begin flashing to indicate that the 1s digit can be set.

4. Select the desired value for the 1s digit. Using the up or down buttons will change the displayed value as shown above for the 10s place selection. Press the "*" button. Here, pressing the "*" button:

a. enters the temperature setting into the internal memory.

b. displays the temperature setting.

c. starts heater control.

Note: If you turn off the power switch during the temperature setting, setting value will not store in the memory.

To change the temperature setting when the card is left in the station, refer to the followings.

1. Push the "*" button and hold it down for at least one second. First the present temperature setting will be displayed, and then the 100s place digit will begin to flash. This flashing indicates that the temperature setting mode has been entered. After the flashing begins, proceed with the setting temperature.

2. If the "*" button is pressed for less than one second, the present temperature setting will be show for two seconds and then the display will return to showing the tip temperature.

The card.

1. After setting temperature, remove the card. The preset temperature cannot be changed until the card is reinserted, even if the power switch is turned off. This allows you:

a. to turn the power off and on without having to reset the temperature each time.

b. accurate and safe temperature control.

2. Any card can be used with any station.

3. Even of the card is left in the station, the soldering station will operate normally. If the power is turned off while the card is inserted, the soldering iron will heat to the preciously set temperature.

Stacking Stations.

For greater convenience and soldering efficiency, two stations can be securely stacked.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What temperature should use for soldering?
  • How to care and use of the soldering tip?
  • How to set the desired temperature?
  • Why a "de-tinned" tip fails to work?
  • How to clean the tip?

  • What temperature should use for soldering?
    600- 650F (316- 343C) is a good place to start for lead-based solder and 650- 700F (343- 371C) for lead-free solder.

    Note: if clots form, the temperature is too low.

    How to care and use of the soldering tip?

    High soldering temperatures can degrade the tip. Use the lowest possible soldering temperature. The excellent thermal recovery characteristics ensure efficient and effective soldering event at low temperatures. This also protects the sensitive components from thermal damage. Clean the tip regularly with a cleaning sponge, as oxides and carbides from the solder and flux can form impurities on the tip. These impurities can result in defective joints or reduce the tip's heat conductivity. When using the soldering iron continuously, be sure to loosen the tip and remove all oxides least once a week. This helps to prevent reduction of the tip temperature. Never leave the soldering iron sitting at high temperature for long periods of time, as the tip's solder plating will be covered with oxide, which can greatly reduce the tip's heat conductivity. Wipe the tip and coat it with fresh solder after use. This helps to prevent tip oxidation.

    How to set the desired temperature?

    To change the temperature setting when the card is left in the station, refer to the followings.

    1. Push the * button and hold it down for at least one second. First the present temperature setting will be displayed, and then the 100s place digit will begin to flash. This flashing indicates that the temperature setting mode has been entered. After the flashing begins, proceed with the setting temperature.

    2. If the * button is pressed for less than one second, the present temperature setting will be show for two seconds and then the display will return to showing the tip temperature.

    Why a "de-tinned" tip fails to work?

    A de-tinned tip is one which cannot wet with solder. This exposes the plating to oxidation and degrades the heat transfer efficiency of the tip.

    The de-tinning is caused by:

    1) Failure to keep the tip covered with fresh solder while not in use.

    2) High tip temperatures.

    3) Insufficient melting in soldering operations.

    4) Wiping the tip on dirty or dry sponges and rags (Always use a clean, wet, industrial grade, sulfur-free sponge).

    5) Impurities in the solder, iron plating, or on the surfaces to be soldered.


    Up

    How to clean the tip?

    Caution! Never file the tip to remove oxide.

    1. Set the temperature to 250C.
    2. When the temperature stabilizes, clean the tip with the cleaning sponge and check the condition of the tip.
    3. If there is black oxide on the solder-plated portion of the tip, apply new solder (containing flux) and wipe the tip on the cleaning sponge. Repeat until the oxide is completely removed. Coat with new solder. The solder protects the tip from oxidation and prolongs the life of the tip.
    4. If the tip is deformed or heavily eroded, replace it with a new one.
