Infra-red PCB reflow oven.
The oven has six preset heat profiles, and two user-configurable profiles. Profile 1 seems to work well for 60/40 Pb/Sn solder, profile 3 seems to work well for Pb-free solder. Some experimentation and careful monitoring is recommended.
The controller interface is "minimal" when it comes to UX... it takes a bit of getting used to. Key scan happens at around 1Hz frequency, so you need to hold buttons until it registers. There are replacement community-created firmwares available for this, we should investigate one day. There are also a number of community-recommended hardware modifications which should also be investigated - our unit has already had the masking tape replaced with Kapton tape, the earthing improved, and the sliding hinges realigned.
Do not leave this unit unattended during use.
