Hakko FR-872 120V 4-Bank Infrared (IR) Preheater

Your Price: $1,649.97

The FR-872 is a low profile, bench-top PCBoard preheater 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. The FR-872 is particularly useful when soldering Pb-Free assemblies.

  • High efficiency carbon filament IR heating lamps
  • 4 independent switchable heat zones
  • 8.8 x 10.5 in (224 x 266 mm) effective heating area
  • Manual or Auto operation modes
  • Preheat controlled by Power percentage or Thermocouple for closed-loop feedback of the PCB heating
  • Ramp Control that controls the ramp rate of the PCB when using either of the thermocouple modes of temperature control
  • Soft EPO to protect assemblies
  • Automatic operation following a 3-heating zone profile that can be programmed into the system (with up to 20 possible profiles)
  • Faster than ceramic IR heating
