Milwaukie, OR, USA. October 31, 2008 – ECD, a leading provider of thermal profiling equipment and software, has again responded to the needs of the electronics assembly community; this time, by introducing a new and updated version (Version 2.16b) of its award-winning M.A.P.® software.
Used with the MEGAM.O.L.E.®20, the SuperM.O.L.E.®Gold, and the newest addition to the M.O.L.E. family of thermal profilers, the V-M.O.L.E.®, ECD’s M.A.P.® (Machine, Assembly, and Process) software has proven valuable both to the engineer and the production operator. Its three unique Wizards have made it easy for even the beginning or infrequent user to both set up and verify the target thermal profile. The updated Wizard for step-by-step creation of a profile’s Target 10™ specification makes it easier than ever for the engineer to both define a Target 10™ specification and program it into the M.O.L.E.
The “engineer” and “verify” modes allow the engineer to turn off aspects of the software not relevant to production operators, while they themselves retain access to M.A.P.’s full diagnostic capability. Because throughput counts, within “verify” mode simple visual indicators signal production operators whether the target profile has been met within engineer-specified tolerances. The MEGAM.O.L.E.®20 and the V-M.O.L.E.® have the additional capability of one-button indication of Go/No-Go.
The “engineer” mode grants access to over 180 customizable data extractions, customizable reports, and full profile data for detailed diagnostics.
Dedicated to saving both production time and cost, ECD continues to develop engineering solutions in thermal profiling that anticipate customer needs with products that are robust, flexible, easy to operate and easy to interpret.
