PDR, a leader in IR rework and test, announces the release of the latest software features to complement its award-winning ThermoActive Suite Software. The new Events Module offers enhanced audio, visual, and machine function activation tools that allow the operator to set up audio tones, visual operator messaging, and machine function activities such as forced air cooling and vacuum pump activation all in an easy-to-use operator interface.
PDR’s ThermoActive Suite Plus offers simplicity while providing powerful behind-the-scenes control to achieve maximum rework productivity. With just six PDR supplied general profiles, PDR’s dynamic software automatically adjusts the wattage required to achieve high yield small board, medium board, and large board rework.
The ThermoActive Suite Plus does not require a ‘Teach/Learn Mode,’ meaning it is capable of self-adjusting thermal output to reach safe reflow temperatures automatically. As a result, users see a reduction in time and effort required for precision process/profile development. Additionally, in Auto Profile Mode, the software dynamically responds by increasing or decreasing top heat relative to the environment, ramp rate, and temperature limits.
PDR Rework Systems remains at the forefront of rework technology by providing air nozzle free systems with advanced in-process control features and visible light that takes the guesswork out of rework.
