PDR, a provider of IR rework and testing systems, introduced its C3i entry-level focused IR rework system with software control. It is ideal for firms seeking a rework solution in the R&D or small lab environment.
Based on their earlier entry-level system, this upgrade offers full software control of the rework process using the company’s Thermoactive Software Suite. This enables the system to perform tasks such as auto-profiling of the rework process.
Utilizing the company’s patented focused IR technology, the C3i does not require air nozzles. It incorporates a multi-zone preheat system and comes with a two-year factory warranty. It has either a self-contained vacuum pump for hand wand component removal or a venture-based vacuum system when shop air is present.
Designed for dual closed-loop temperature feedback, the system takes control of managing both PCB and component temperature via the system’s PC-based software interface.
