Look to ECD’s OvenRIDER® NL 2* if you need to VERIFY an oven’s performance:
Regardless of the recipe and what your oven's controls indicate, what your PCB actually experiences at board-level as it goes through the oven can be SIGNIFICANTLY different. Achieve convection reflow oven Verification by separating zonal temperatures from convective heat flow efficiency while verifying conveyor speed for a true picture of oven Lead-Free performance consistency.
Profile the oven instead of the circuit board to ensure the reflow oven is capable of continually performing your board recipes. Built-In Statistical Process Control makes OvenRIDER® a superior 'First-Off' tool compared to an overused 'Golden Board', with no thermocouples to attach. The pallet material is designed to withstand thousands of passes through the oven – try that with a PCB!
The patented OvenRIDER® travels through your oven with a M.O.L.E.® inside collecting data for analysis and SPC charting. A combination of thermal and process sensors measure oven performance, delivering consistent data that can be used to identify modest trends which may be developing, or serious conditions that have already arrived. Simple PCB profiling cannot detect all the subtleties which can have a profound effect on PCB production quality.
There are many benefits to utilizing OvenRIDER's power to verify process conditions, or to validate an oven purchasing decision. Contact us to discuss, or simply visit our Thermal Profiling Superstore and get your boost to Quality Assurance started today.
