The "Ten Commandments" for Electronic Soldering Equipment

I. Thou shall not remove tip from soldering iron when power is "On". Causes heating element to rise in temperature to approximately 1300&Mac251;F resulting in thermal shock and reduced heater life.

II. Thou shall maintain a damp (NOT drenched) iron sponge (preferably with de-ionized water). A drenched sponge will bring the temperature of the tip down too drastically, causing thermal shock and reduced tip life.

III. Thou shall not disconnect soldering iron from base unit when power is turned "On". Disconnecting or reconnecting the soldering tool from the base unit with power applied may cause a short between non-compatible pins resulting in damage to the base unit or pencil.

IV. Thou shall maintain a coating of solder on working area of soldering iron tip. Protects the tip from oxidation.

V. Thou shall never drop soldering iron while heated. Dropping the soldering tool while heated may cause thermal/mechanical shock to the heater, sensor, or tip (fractured plating).

VI. Thou shall not throw soldering iron into soldering tool stand. See Commandment V.

VII. Never use soldering iron as a crowbar or pry tool. Could chip or pit finish on tip rendering it useless.

VIII. Using sharp or serrated objects to remove tip from soldering iron is forbidden. See Commandment VII.

IX. Honor thy "KGB" (Known Good Base). Do not plug a non-working soldering iron into a KGB. Could cause damage to the base.

X. Thou shall turn station down to lowest setting during daily usage when not being used. Turning the station down during non use periods will prevent severe thermal cycling of the tool. However, tools not being used for extended periods of time should not be left on indefinitely.

Sola Power Conditioners 05/21/2003 at 5:49PM by Randy
Sola/Hevi-Duty's ferroresonant power conditioners protect equipment from all power problems other than a complete loss of power. They excel at tightly regulating voltage within ±1.0% for input variations up to +10%/-20%, provide superior noise attenuation and are designed to withstand the harshest electrical environments. With no moving parts, Sola’s ferroresonant power conditioners are virtually maintenance-free.

Whether you purchase a Sola CVS, an MCR or an MPC, you can count on an average of 25 years of dependable service.
Every ferroresonant power conditioner is manufactured to exacting specifications and subjected to rigorous quality control. Sola uses cruciform-type construction with precision die-cut shunts, gaps and spacings between windings. This design technique is superior to ferroresonant transformers utilizing E and I type laminations with loose shunts, gaps and variable spacings between windings. The cruciform-type construction provides more consistent electrical characteristics and quieter operation than other types of construction.

Sola/Hevi-Duty offers the following types of transformers:

CVS Hardwired Series - Constant Voltage Transformers
One of the best voltage regulators in the industry with extremely tight regulation for a nearly perfect sine wave output plus the reliable, stable performance of Sola's ferroresonant technology.

MCR Hardwired Series - Power Line Conditioning with Voltage Regulation
Provides exceptional protection against voltage sags and brownouts. The output voltage remains within ±3% for an input line variation of +10%/-20%. Available in 50 and 60 Hz models.

MCR Portable Series - Power Line Conditioning with Voltage Regulation
Provides portable, economical protection from surges, sags, spikes, brownouts, harmonics, SCR notches and EMI/RFI noise.

MPC Portable Medical Series - Power Line Conditioners
Effective, economical protection for medical systems.

DIN Rail Mounted Line Reactors
Safe, compact protection for high frequency drives and electronic equipment.

Sola Power Supplies 05/21/2003 at 5:43PM by Randy
Sola has a broad range of standard power supplies to suit almost any industrial application. Updated approvals and user friendly features make power system design easy. The product line includes one of the broadest ranges of DIN Rail and linear-based power supplies in the marketplace. The DIN Rail products feature full CE compliance (including all the elements of CE design engineers need to worry about: safety/LVD, EMC, and ingress protection). UL 508 approvals eliminate derating in UL 508 listed panel systems. Global inputs are available for installations around the globe.

Sola also offers a three phase input option on many of the SDN DIN Rail products that convert 380/480 three phase directly to 24 VDC. They provide extremely stable, regulated low voltage without the need for a step down transformer saving space and money. For the popular SL linear line, Sola leads the market by replacing the time consuming solder connections with screw terminals. Ease-of-use is now combined with the economy and extremely low noise.

Sola has provided both linear and switching technology products for many years. As a leading supplier of power products to the industrial market, both technologies are still important. Switching technology (most of Sola’s DIN Rail line) is the predominant method of AC-DC conversion for almost any type of electronic system sold today in the world, from PLC’s to desktop PC’s.

The small size, lightweight and high efficiency of the switching products give them significant advantages over the linear technology products (Sola’s SL and 81/83 series). Sola switching products provide well filtered and regulated DC of typically less than 1% deviation from the nominal output voltage.

lineargrp.jpg (13720 bytes)

Linears are about 50% efficient while their switching counterparts are typically over 80% efficient. Switchers are light enough to mount on a DIN Rail, while only the smallest linears are capable of being securely mounted to a DIN Rail. Linears are still popular today because they do provide very tight regulation (<.01% typically), almost perfectly clean DC, fast transient response and their low component count helps provide a lower material cost for its user.
Linears are typically open frame because of the excessive heat dissipation from their low efficiency. Sola’s industry standard linears, however, are available with optional covers for safety. Most linears, except for Sola’s SCL series, are recognized to UR 1950 and cannot meet the stricter temperature requirements of the UL 508 Listing, such as with Sola’s switching DIN Rail power supplies.

DC Power Supply Selection Process Top

1. Gather the required information.

• Input voltage and frequency?

• Wattage needed?

• Number of outputs?

• Voltage of each output?

• Amperage of each output?

• Don't forget to take into account the
peak loading of each output.

2) Calculate the power (wattage) of the DC
power supply you need. If more than one
output is required, do the following calculation:

* Multiply the Voltage times the amperage of each output to calculate the wattage of each output. Next, add together the wattage of each output to get the total wattage for the supply.

3) Determine which models from the Power Supply
Selection Chart meet all of the required

5) Check the mounting style, connections and
physical size of the power supply to ensure its
suitability for the intended application.

6) Check for applicable safety approvals for the
country and application the power supply will
be used in.
