Soldering and desoldering station heats-up in only 35 seconds

September 28, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The digitally controlled 2-channel soldering and desoldering station WXD 2 and its high-power desoldering iron WXPD 120 with a heating-up time of only 35 seconds (50–350°C), were designed for professional repair work on state-of-the-art electronic assemblies.

The desoldering parameters are easy to program and store in the tool. This means users can get started as soon as they plug in the iron. The Power Sharing feature allows the flexible selection and simultaneous operation of Weller WX tools for any application up to 255 W total power output. External devices such as a preheating plate or a solder fume extraction unit can also be connected. A maintenance-free Venturi unit produces a constant vacuum via an external compressed air supply. A straight forward and multi-lingual menu navigation system keeps familiarisation times to a minimum. The turn-and-click wheel allows intuitive operation.

An extended nozzle shaft prevents the suction tube sticking. Since the suction channel is also replaced, the once tedious and time-consuming task of cleaning the tool is now a thing of the past. The relatively low working temperatures (380°C) and the automatic Standby mode triple the life of the suction nozzles.
