Milwaukie, OR, August 21, 2008 – ECD of Milwaukie, OR, has announced the NEPCON South China Shenzhen introduction of a new product in its line of thermal profiling products. Designed to complement both board profilers such as the twenty-channel MEGAM.O.L.E.®20 and the industry standard SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold, and oven profilers such as OvenRIDER®, and OvenWatch®, the V-M.O.L.E.® provides a fast, easy, and very affordable way to both verify and specify thermal profiles. Among thermal profilers, unique to the V-M.O.L.E.® and MEGAM.O.L.E.®20 is the ability for an engineer to pre-define the profile Go/No-Go criteria, while the production operator verifies with the push of a button.
The “OK Button,” first introduced in the MEGAM.O.L.E.®20, gives one-touch profile verification with a clear green (Go) or red (N0-Go) signal right on the profiler. In addition, operators are given warnings on battery, core temperature, and TC connectivity to eliminate wasted runs. This true technology improvement should prove ideal for production environments needing to ensure ongoing quality, while maximizing product throughput.
One of the problems encountered with high-volume runs is the repeated profiling of the same prototype PCB to assure that target profiles are met. The V-M.O.L.E®. enables greatly simplified verification of a target profile through strategic placement of a minimal number of thermocouples. This saves time in TC attachment, and cost in TC replacement.
V-M.O.L.E.® is powered by ECD’s MAP software, which will also process data from non-ECD profilers/data loggers. Given ECD product quality and robust software, V-M.O.L.E.® accuracy is never sacrificed, yet savings abound. Its affordability for multiple lines, “readiness” indicators, the rechargeable lithium polymer battery, “OK Button,” Target-10 software, and TC placement guide, all contribute to higher quality, greater throughput, and true low cost of ownership.
The V-M.O.L.E.® may be seen at both Booth 2F20 and Booth 2C01 at NEPCON South China in Shenzhen. Visit www.ecd.com/products/vmole for more information on this newest addition to the ECD line of thermal profiling products.
