Metcal introduces the new CV-500 Connection Validation™ Soldering System

Oct 11, 2018

CV-500 Connection Validation™ Soldering System.

CV-500 Connection Validation™ Soldering System.

Metcal is pleased to introduce the new CV-500 Connection Validation™ Soldering System, the companion station to the CV-5210

CV Soldering System. The CV-500 packs all of the Connection Validation technology into a compact, economical housing.

The intermetallic compound thickness is critical in the formation of a solder joint. Connection Validation (CV) is a patented technology that evaluates the quality of the solder joint by calculating the intermetallic compound formation and provides closed loop feedback to the operator.

The CV-500 soldering system excels at SMD touch-up and small component rework using the Ultrafine hand-piece and Ultrafine tweezer hand-piece (both sold separately). The CV-500 system also features Smartheat™ power on demand technology, a 2.8" color touchscreen with bold graphics, an integrated net power meter with optional tip temperature display and much more.

The CV-500 is compatible with Metcal’s eight hand-pieces and upgrade kits for the CV soldering system. These ergonomic hand-pieces transform the CV system into a complete soldering solution for a wide variety of applications.
