The FR-870B is a bench-top board heater designed to elevate the temperature of printed circuit board assemblies so that components on them can be soldered and de-soldered more easily, and with improved results. This is particularly useful on medium to high-mass board assemblies, which can “heat-sink” a significant amount of energy being supplied by a soldering iron tip, or handheld hot-air tool. This tool is particularly useful when soldering Pb-free assemblies.
The FR-870B is an updated replacement for the popular Hakko FR-870 IR Preheater that includes an upgrade to use the new high efficiency carbon filament lamps and the new software features found in the FR-872 4-zone IR preheater, thus allowing you to control the ramp rate at 1, 2, or 3 degrees Celsius per second when ou are in one of the two thermocouple modes.
