RS Components Introduces New Professional-quality RS Branded Soldering Station

High functionality soldering station comes with large number of features and a significantly lower price tag

Taipei, Taiwan, 28 October 2014:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has launched a new RS branded soldering station with soldering iron that has all the features, functionality and quality expected of a professional product, yet is substantially cheaper than the premium brand equivalent.

Targeting professional use by electronic design engineers, the soldering station offers ultra-fast heat up from room temperature to 350 degrees Celsius in only 10 seconds thus reducing operating time and running costs. Other key features of this professional quality station include: large backlit LCD display with an analogue bar for easy readout; multi-power switch-mode control; three hot keys for fast pre-set temperature changes; and an automatic sleep mode, thereby increasing the longevity of the heater and iron tip. Replacement tips are also available from RS.

In addition, the use of silver-alloy conductive materials in the product ensures minimum heating loss. Other specifications of the station include power consumption of 90W, temperature accuracy of plus-minus 10 degrees Celsius, and an operating temperature range of 100 degrees Celsius to 500 degrees Celsius.

The RS branded soldering station is now in stock (part no. 799-8941) and available via RS Components in EMEA and Asia Pacific.
