Introducing the New C3i Entry-Level Focused IR Rework System with Software Control.
IR rework and test provider, PDR, introduced its new C3i entry-level focused IR rework system with software control. The C3i system is ideal for firms seeking a rework solution in the research and development or small lab environment.
Based on PDR’s popular C3 entry level system, this upgrade offers full software control of the rework process using the company’s Thermoactive Software Suite. This enables the entry level system to perform tasks such as auto-profiling of the rework process.
Utilising PDR’s patented focused IR technology, the C3i does not require air nozzles. The system incorporates a multi-zone preheat system and comes with a two year factory warranty. The C3i comes with either a self-contained vacuum pump for hand wand component removal or a venture-based vacuum system when shop air is present.
Designed for dual closed-loop temperature feedback, the C3i system takes control of managing both PCB and component temperature via the system’s PC-based software interface.
