This section covers brief descriptions for the features of MEGARIDER™ PTP®.
•Inconel®-sheathed Thermocouples (K-type; SLE): The sensor type used for all of the MEGARIDER™ PTP® ambient and mass sensors.
•Ambient Zone Temperature Measurements: Thermocouples for the determination of the ambient temperature at surface level of the PCB.
•Sensors: Thermocouples, which are attached to different measurement standards. The measurement standards differ only in their material thickness to measure the heating capabilities of an oven.
oThin (1.6mm [0.063”]): Thermocouples for the determination of cross oven conveyor temperature deltas for thin material.
oMedium (3.2mm [0.125”]): Thermocouples for the determination of cross oven conveyor temperature deltas for medium material.
oThick (6.0mm [0.236”]): Thermocouples for the determination of cross oven conveyor temperature deltas for thick material.
•Sensor Connector Bridge: Where wire harness adaptors connect the MEGARIDER™ PTP® to a Thermal Profiler.
•Test Pallet: These test pallet boards endure thousands of runs through the oven without significant degradation. Far beyond the 6-10 with standard laminate PCBs used as “Golden Boards”
