The RX-711AS soldering station is a precision, Japanese manufactured instrument with excellent temperature stability and anti-static characteristics.
The light weight soldering pencil has a grounded tip and incorporates a ceramic heater with an integral temperature sensor. The sensor provides precise tip-temperature information to the heater controller which maintains the selected heat setting with a high degree of accuracy. Temperature stability is further enhanced by designing the heater to actually fit within a matching recess in the tip. This allows faster heat transfer and therefore better tip-temperature recovery during heavy soldering. The soldering pencil is fitted with a silicon rubber grip for added handling precision and a 1.1 metre long silicone sheathed cord attaches to the console controller via a 5 pin DIN connector. The silicone cord is incredibly supple.
The control panel includes the digital temperature display panel, a rotary temperature control, calibration control and a display changeover switch to display either the desired or actual tip temperature. The panel is secured behind a darkened see-through cover which prevents accidental temperature changes but can be easily accessed when required.
