Metcal’s new CV Monitor software collects vital process information!


Improve your solder process traceability and create a performance baseline using CV's intelligent cartridges plus CV-5000 Monitor software. Using our Connection Validation patented technology, CV Monitor software allows you to capture solder process information over time for each joint when attached to the communication port. You'll get:


     • Intermetallic Compound Formation (IMC Formation)*
     • Power demand
     • Tip temperature
     • Solder time


Now that you have a baseline, you can quickly analyze your soldering performance, identify changes in your solder conditions, and make changes to your process. Download the free CV-5000 Monitor software and start monitoring your process.

APR-5000 Series Software Updates


Note: You will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader for using the APR-5000 Series Software. If you do not have Acrobat, please click HERE to download

Metcal has upgraded the power output of its APR-5000-XL and APR-5000-XLS machines in order to handle extremely demanding rework applications. These new machines also require updated software to run both sets of under-board heaters at the same time. Please note that this new software will NOT run on previous generation machines as their internal hardware and wiring are not designed to handle the increased current (Amps) required by the new software.

The software (Version 2.03.25) in the first box below can only be used on the APR-5000-XLS, Serial Number 002000 or higher or the APR-5000-XL, Serial Number 001500 or higher. 
OK International has also upgraded the power output of its APR-5000-DZ versions of the APR-5000 machine in order to handle extremely demanding rework applications. This new, updated software (Version 2.03.21), will run both sets of under-board heaters at the same time. Please note that this new software will not run on previous generation machines APR-5000E.

New features:
     • New dual simultaneously operating subzones provide additional power for faster and safer rework operations
     • New software enables fast and easy profiling
     • New subzone design speeds up the process while allowing the operating temperatures to remain lower protecting the component and the PCB

Key benefits:
     • Increased productivity
     • Precise thermal control across critical assembly regions
     • Reduction of rework cycle time protects the component under rework from thermal damage
     • Better management of the narrow lead-free process window without reaching excessive peak temperatures that damage components, connectors, other solder joints and the PCB substrate
     • To receive your software update, you will need the Serial Number (S/N) of your machine. It is located on the label on the back of the APR system, at the bottom left.

     1. Choose your APR-5000 model 
     2. Open Install Instructions document, APR Software Install Instructions for detailed information on how to install the software.
     3. Open the document Setting Passwords for APR Software for information on how to set passwords.
