Milwaukie, OR, USA – November 13, 2007 – ECD of Milwaukie, Oregon, has just introduced a revolutionary thermal profiling system. Using only four “nano-connectors,” a design developed by, and unique to ECD, the MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 Profiler offers a full twenty channels, the most of any traveling profiler in the reflow industry. At only 7.2 mm, MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 provides a thinner and more advanced configuration than currently available, and has the capacity for over 25 runs before downloading data. This thin and narrow shape is especially beneficial when faced with significant physical constraints of nitrogen curtains, and when profiling smaller boards such as cell phones.
Even with its ability to present complex data, the MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 provides ease of programming with three workflow Wizards for set-up and M.O.L.E.-Readiness Indicators to avoid wasted runs. A clear “Go” or “No-go” feature known as the “OK Button” signals the operator whether all elements of the run are within pre-programmed parameters. This all but eliminates the extra step of finding and questioning an engineer before release of critical runs.
Fully PC compatible and graphically intuitive, the MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20’s new MAP® software targets ramp, soak, time above liquidous, and peak segments of the run and provides a single-page color-coded data summary, with further details available… at the click of the mouse. It also runs seamlessly with ECD’s existing SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold Profiler, eliminating need to replace hardware for those users satisfied with six channels.
When asked if the savings in time and money were quantifiable, Grant Peterson, Vice-President of Marketing & Sales for ECD, stated that “The targeted focus groups used in our research reported potential savings of twenty to twenty-five percent in production time per week. That reduction in time alone will drive down cost of ownership; but when coupled with the savings realized from our rechargeable battery system and protection against wasted runs, you can see that this is not just a competitive product, but in many ways a superior one.” “That’s why,” he continued, “we tout our hardware as data-rich, time-saving, and easy-to-use, and our software as easy-to-use, flexible, and robust.”
The MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 is being unveiled at Productronica in Hall A4, Stand 141. More information on the MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 can be obtained at ECD’s website,
