Temperature range: 150 to 450°C (302 to 842°F)
On/Off switch on side of unit
Includes soldering iron, stand, and sponge
Additional range of soldering tips available
New appearance design, big LCD screen, for clear and convenient reading
PID power control loop with constant temperature set by MCU computer for more precision temperature control
Imported temperature-beard materials with long life
It is convenient that the device adopt three programmable knobs in different condition
Display the temperature between Fahrenheit and Celsius flexibly, convenient for the type of operators
Computerized temperature calibration can correct the difference between the actual and display temperature quickly
Connection: Insert soldering iron's plug into the socket and tighten the nut on the plug securely and place it in iron holder. Inset station's power cord into power plug on the back panel and plug the cord into a power source.
Power on: Turn on the unit. The Digital display will initially display the current set temperature (the value of last time using for 3 seconds. After few seconds it would display the actual temperature with temp unit “°C or °F”. (diagram 1), (diagram 2)
Adjusting Temperature: Under normal working condition, pressing and holding button you can either increase or decrease the temperature quickly. Keeping the knob in pressed will adjust the temperature setting quickly; short pressing knob, you can adjust temp step by step. The display screen shows the temperature value simultaneously. Release knob for 3s to store. (diagram 3)
Quickly adjusting temperature: Under working condition, you can set working temperature quickly by programmable buttons. Press the button once to extract setting temperature stored in button 1, 2 & 3, this way you can easily set the working temperature.
Pressing button # and buttons 1, 2, 3, you can store the setting temperature into fast channel knobs 1, 2, 3 (diagram 4) .
A. Hotkey 1 is usually applied to store a 392ºF/200ºC or lower temperature value at which level machine stands by and on rest.
B. Hotkey 2 is a shortcut of temperature between 572ºF/300ºC to 662ºF/350ºC at which level a general soldering job can be done.
C. Hotkey 3 is a fast channel to high temperature of 716ºF/380ºC specificied for special welding job.
Temperature calibration: You need calibrate the temperature of tip after you replace with a new heating element or tip. Enter into calibrating station by long pressing knob (>3s). You can directly adjust the value of calibration by pressing knob "↑" or "↓". The value of calibration is temperature measured minus the settings. (e.g. Actual value 380ºC – setting value 662ºF / 350ºC = +86ºF / +30ºC. Pressing knob "↑" adds +86ºF / +30ºC; Actual value 608ºF / 320ºC setting value 662ºF / 350ºC = -86ºF / -30ºC. Pressing knob "↓" minus 86ºF / 30ºC). The calibrating temp range is 122ºF / +50ºC ~ 122ºF / -50ºC. You can press knob to store after you finish calibration. (diagram 5)
Temperature unit exchange: In the power off condition, press and hold knob #, then turn on the station, the temp unit will be changed between ºC and °F and store automatically.
False alarm: When H-E or S-E is displayed on the screen, there is some wrong in heating element or the circuit. (diagram 6, 7). Turn off the unit and follow the instructions to replace the heating element.
Caution: Improper usage can cause serious injury to personnel and/or damage to equipment. For personnel safety, please follow these precautions:
Never use it to do other work except soldering.
Do not subject the main unit to physical shock. Never drop or sharply jolt the unit.
Don't change the device at will
Replace loss items with original accessories.
Don't put it in water or operate with wet hands
Don't pull the cable but hold tightly the plug when you take it out of plug.
Please keep the operate place well ventilated since soldering process produce smoke.
Don't play with other people or would be easy to hurt others or yourself.
Care and Maintenance
Keep the soldering station dry; if it gets wet, dry it immediately.
Use the soldering station only in normal temperature environments.
Keep the soldering station away from dust and dirt.
The soldering iron tip should be cleaned after use by wiping it on the damp sponge found in the soldering iron stand. This is to get rid of burnt solder or fluxes that cause oxidation on the tip
