55W 470kHz ESD Safe Soldering Station
Thermaltronics TMT-2000S-K soldering station
Rapid response 470kHz Curie heating technology
Includes K-series 0.5mm conical tip
This outstanding new soldering station uses a proven technology, Curie point temperature sensing with a new twist. The tip is heated by RF induction to bring the tip up to operating temp. The soldering iron tip is a heater. Older Curie point soldering irons like the famous Weller W-TCP used 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.
