Developers and electronic enthusiasts in the market for a rework station, may be interested in a new arrival at the Adafruit online store in the form of the Quick 861DW Hot Air soldering rework station with three nozzles, which is priced at $285.
The powerful station has an internal pump and heater to blow a steady stream of temperature controlled hot air, making it easy to remove components, fix joints and jumpers, replace missing components, or just correct something that may have been fitted incorrectly or needs adjusting.
Adafruit explains a little more about it specifications. “It has a closed-loop temperature control range between 100-500°C (212-932°F) and a digital display so you can easily tell what temperature the air’s blowing at. It has a power consumption of 1000W and an intelligent cooling system, so the airflow remains on until it gets to below 100°C. Max air flow is 100 L/minute – but for most work you’ll want to keep it a lot lower than that.”
The rework station Measures 245 x 188 x 135mm in size and has a hose length of 105 cm. For more details on purchasing options jump over to the official Adafruit online store.
