Thermaltronics Debuts TMT-ST10 Versatile 3-in-1 Soldering Tip Tester

Thermaltronics, a manufacturer of soldering systems, incorporating the unique Curie Point Technology for temperature control, has introduced a multifunction soldering tip tester that has the following measurement functions:

  • Tip temperature (centigrade to Fahrenheit switchable)
  • Tip to ground resistance (ohm)
  • Tip to ground voltage leakage (mv)

Additionally, the unit comes with a mini USB port, enabling the tester to be connected to a computer to read stored data.

The large LCD display can show current test information, data stored in the system memory and any “info” messages such as notices or alerts. If there are no “info messages,” this section of the display reverts to date and time.

Included with the tester is a pack of type “K” thermocouples (ST-SNSR-1), a ground wire (ST-GWIRE) for use when testing for resistance or voltage leakage, and a mini USB cable (ST-CABLE-1).

This multifunction tester comes with a one-year warranty and is one of the most competitive units on the market. Learn more about the TMT-ST10 solder tip tester at http://www.thermaltronics.com.
