WaveRIDER® NL 2

Know the Past… Predict the future.

Establishing the wave soldering process can be challenging. And, with many soldering specialists leaving the electronics industry, the science of wave soldering is becoming a lost art and expertise is often hard to find.

The ECD WaveRIDER® NL 2 solves this dilemma. As the easiest and most effective tool for wave soldering process verification, WaveRIDER offers process verification measurement to help fill the expertise void. Used in combination with the SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold or SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold 2 thermal profiler, this robust tool measures and monitors preheat temperatures and slopes, conveyor speed, wave contact times and parallelism.
