Addresses critical maintenance and troubleshooting steps to keep you and your equipment working at top performance and efficiency.

ST70 Power Supply with Power Module inserted
No knobs, displays or programming ... just plug in a Power Module, turn it on, and it works!


Power Modules Precisely Control Temperature!

The ST 70 is a single channel system that comes equipped with the TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridge Soldering Iron, considered by many to be the most comfortable soldering handle available. Unlike Metcal/Easy Braid/Thermaltronics "curie point' technologies, which requires the user to buy expensive tips to change temperature, the ST 70 regulates temperature via the use of 8 different Power Modules™. You never have to buy additional tips to change temperature with the ST 70!

No Knobs, No Displays, No Programming ... Just Turn It On, and It Works!

The ST 70 is extremely easy to operate. Simply select the performance/heat level you desire, plug in the appropriate color-coded Power Module into the front panel, and the system takes care of the rest! Each Power Module heat level corresponds to a Fahrenheit temperature equivalent, so that Heat Level 6.5 is roughly equivalent to 650°F, Heat Level 7.5 is similar to 750°F and so on (see chart below). A color-coded diode tells you when you are ready to solder. The ST 70 is supplied with 6.5, 7 and 7.5 Power Modules; higher or lower Heat Levels are optionally available.

Significantly Lower Your Costs with TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridges

TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridge Soldering IronThe system is packaged with the TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridge Soldering Iron, considered by many to be the most comfortable soldering handle available, along with Tip & Tool Stand. Crafted by a team of surgical instrument engineers to eliminate fatigue and improve control, the PACE TD-100 is simply the most ergonomic, powerful and easy to use soldering iron on the market today! The handpiece uses a patented Tip-Heater Cartridge which can be changed in seconds, and most tips heat up within 10 seconds flat! Yet TD-100 single point soldering tips cost less than $11 (US) ... compare that to the much higher prices of Hakko, Metcal, Easy Braid, Thermaltronics and JBC tips!

TD-100 with Diamond Tip-Heater Cartridge   TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridges plug in and out in seconds!   Hundreds of tip geometries are available for the TD-100
Most single point TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridges cost less than $11, heat up in seconds
and are Hot-Swappable without tools and without turning the power supply off!


Power Without Expense!

But just because they cost less doesn't mean TD-100 soldering tips are less powerful. Performance and responsiveness is exceptional, perfect for demanding Lead-Free or multilayer soldering. TD-100 Tip-Heater Cartridges feature instantaneous load sensing and on-demand power. Thermal demand is continuously monitored and the heater responds immediately by providing power to meet the demand from the work, without overshoot. And operators are not locked into a single temperature like Metcal, Easy Braid or Thermaltronics, which require a separate (and very expensive) tip to be purchased for each temperature desired!
