PCT-1000 Programmable Preheater
PCT-1000 Programmable Preheater


The PCT-1000 is a programmable preheater that provides users the ability to increase heat capacity with highly controlled thermal output. The PCT-1000 can be used in a variety of processes including soldering, desoldering, SMD rework operations and, with its added heat capacity, will provide faster production rates while lowering overall process temperatures.

Features and Benefits:

  • Adds heat capacity and enables lower process temperatures
  • Increases through-put and reliability of soldering, desoldering and SMD rework processes
  • Four-zone programmable settings for time and temperature to create optimum thermal profiles for varying application demands
  • Storage for up to fifty user defined profiles for quick, easy set-up
  • User selectable control of heating at source (internal) or at target (external)
  • Controlled cool-down eliminates thermal shock to PCB and components
  • System safety feature automatically shuts off heating when fan is stopped 
  • High efficiency vortex heater design maximizes ramp to temperature for increased productivity

Product Comprises of:

  • Programmable pre-heater
  • Type K T/C Kit
  • Foot switch
  • Power Cord 
  • User Manual


Please note: Boardholders are available separately.
