ALtec P410 or Rex C100

Postby Jane11 » Fri Nov 27, 2015 6:35 pm

I need to set up a temperature profile but the profile should NOT start from ambient temperature but from higher temperature, for example from 150°C.
Also it should finish at that temperature 150°C.
Will I need two PID controllers or one will be enough?
Thank you for help

Can you give more explanation about what exactly you want to do?
How many outputs you need?
Need active cooling too?
etc...

Rex C100 is just a set temp controller, doesn't run a profile, only goes to the set temp, can't set a Ramp.
PC410 does profiles, with Ramp Set and Dwell.

Thanks for your reply.
I need to solder items that need only about 10 seconds to be heated and soldered ( no longer)
The starting temperature can not be ambient (20°C)temperature because it is not technically possible to heat up ( large) soldering tip to about 220C during those 10 sec. So I must already start from a higher temperature, say 150C. That temperature is lower than melting point of tin but high enough that soldering tip CAN reach the melting point during those 10 sec. After those 10 sec, I need to a soak period to cool down the soldering tip but ONLY to those 150 C from where I started (and I can solder other items)
Will I need 2 controllers, 2 pcs of TC or only one?
Thank you
