T-962A Reflow Oven

The T-962A is a 1500W reflow oven for soldering surface mount components on printed circuit boards.  It has a 300 x 320 mm (11.8″ x 12.6″)  capacity, and a temperature range up to 350 degrees C.

It has been upgraded with new open-source firmware from Unified Engineering for much improved performance and an internal temperature sensor for increased temperature accuracy (cold junction compensation).

You can use leaded or lead-free solder paste.  (Maker Works provides a refrigerator for storing solder paste–please do not use the kitchen refrigerator.)

There is currently no checkout required.  Use the SOPs.

Materials

Lead or lead-free solder.

Operations

Single- and double-sided surface mount components.  (Heavy or large surface mount components may be restricted to one side.)
