FR-872 IR PCBoard Preheater

The FR-872 is a low profile, bench-top PCBoard preheater designed to elevate the temperature of printed circuit board assemblies so that components on them can be soldered and desoldered more easily, and with improved results. This is particularly useful on medium to high-mass board assemblies, which can “heat-sink” a significant amount of energy being supplied by a soldering iron tip, or handheld hot air tool. The FR-872 is particularly useful when soldering Pb-Free assemblies.
