PH 100 Low Profile Preheater for High-Mass, Lead-Free PCB's

The PACE PH 100 is a high powered (1600W), non-contact infrared heating system with an ergonomic, low-profile design which allows operators to safely pre-heat PCB’s for fast, efficient soldering, rework or repair, even on the highest mass, lead-free assemblies. The PH 100’s sleek, slim-line design offers an incredibly low working height that improves operator comfort, reduces fatigue and is perfect for use under a microscope. Featuring an intuitive, 3.5” resistive touch screen display, the PH 100 provides easy adjustment of all operational, temperature and power settings, and allows the operator to select color scheme and button layout at will.

Powered by four robust 400W IR heating elements, the large 300mm x 300mm (11.8” x 11.8”) heating area is protected by a durable, easy-clean glass-ceramic surface that efficiently transmits IR heat without emitting irritating visible light as other IR systems do. The PH 100 is closed-loop temperature controlled by either an internal sensor or one of two external thermocouples which can precisely monitor and control temperature on the PCB top or bottom-side. Front and back heating zones can be independently controlled, or turned off completely for added process control and flexibility.

The PH 100 comes standard with a magnetic PCB holder which is easily adjustable to a variety of height/size combinations and accommodates large assemblies (295mm/11.6” x unlimited) as well as small or irregularly shaped boards. Other features include: Settemperature range of 20° - 200°C (68° - 392°F); Independent temperature offset adjustment of heating zones +/- 50° C (90° F); Pre-heat time-at-temperature option with audible alarm; Advanced and User modes; Normal and Fine heating response modes; Password keypad lock out, USB port firmware update capability and more.
