The Fastest Way to Know Your profile is “OK”

Posted on Feb 25, 2010

Now there is a way to verify that your profile requirements are being met in less time than you ever thought possible. The letters in the name M.O.L.E.® thermal profiler have always stood for Multi-channel Occurrent Logger Evaluator. Now the patented* "OK button" feature truly makes "E" in M.O.L.E. a reality, because now the MOLE profiler can automatically compare the measured temperature profile to your pre-programmed profile requirements.

V-MOLE Thermal Profiler

The ECD V-M.O.L.E.® with patented one button "OK" profile evaluation

(The OK Button is also available on the 20-channel MEGAM.O.L.E.® thermal profiler, and OvenCHECKER® )

Taking only seconds, the M.O.L.E.® can tell you and your oven operators if the profile just measured is in or out of specification with the universally understood Green for good (GO!) or Red for bad (STOP!).

You get to set the specification limits for any or all of the four most popular profile parameters:

  • Ramp Slope
  • Time Between temperatures
  • Time above Liquidous
  • Peak Temperature

...and you can choose which of the M.O.L.E.®'s input channels to include, up to 20 channels on the MEGAM.O.L.E.®, and three on the V-M.O.L.E.® thermal profilers.

Slope Soak Thermal Profile

The Specification Table in MAP Software

Using the MAP™ Profiling software, enter your specification limits for the four profile parameters in the Upper and Lower Limits table in the "Target-10 OK" tab. These values will automatically be sent to the MOLE profiler when you use the Verify Process Wizard to confirm that a previously characterized oven recipe is still performing within specification.

Once programmed, the M.O.L.E.® profiler can be used many times (up to 96 times) to Verify your oven is producing the same profile, without reconnecting to your computer. Simply run the profile and press the "OK Button" on the MOLE. No more running back to the PC software to download to see the results. One push of the OK button, and you get your answer... Go, or No-Go. It's that simple!
