  6. Socket to connect soldering iron

Operation instructions

  1. On the front of the housing you will find the LC-Display, the +/- button, and the ON/OFF switch.
  2. After the power plug and the soldering iron have been plugged in and the soldering iron has been placed in the stand, turn on the soldering station with the ON/OFF switch.
  3. For the first use, in the display, you will see 330C in the lower line as factory default and 25C in the upper line.
  4. With the mulfunction display, temperatures from 150C to 450C can easily be set and confirm.
  5. With the +/- button, you can set the temperature with a resolution of rc. To do so, briefly press the respective button. If you hold the button, the display will change in steps of 10C. When the desired temperature is reached, just release the button.
  6. After you have set the desired temperature, "HEAT ON" and "WAIT" will be displayed.
  7. For second use, the station will memory the temperature set for the last use.
  8. Select the right temperature for every job to avoid cold soldering joints or damaging delicate components or burning flux with excessive heat. Burnt flux will cause weak joints.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What temperature should use for soldering?
  • How to care and use of the soldering tip?
  • Is this soldering station designed for soft soldering or hard soldering (brazing)?
  • 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.

    Is this soldering station designed for soft soldering or hard soldering (brazing)?
    This soldering station is for soft soldering.

    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.

    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.
