Metcal GT90-HP-T4 - GT Series Soldering System

Metcal's GT90-HP-T4 Soldering System is an adjustable temperature station that uses inductive technology as the heating mechanism. The complete system includes a soldering station with an external power supply, a hand-piece, and a work-stand to support a variety of soldering and rework applications using the associated tips and cartridges.

The GT adjustable temperature technology has a fast and repeatable heating mechanism and encompasses the convenience of temperature adjustment with the stability and performance of inductive heating. This gives the GT systems a significant performance advantage with much faster time to temperature, thermal recovery and temperature stability during soldering versus competitors in the same product category.

GT90 is a single port soldering station with best in class performance, ideal for single iron applications on the production line.  The GT90 is supplied with a replaceable 90W external power supply allowing for a more compact design to save space and improve the quality & life of the system.

FAQ's

Q - Do the GT units need to be calibrated for tip temperature?
A - GT systems designed to the latest IPC J-STD specifications and do not need to be calibrated for the following reasons: • Programming during the production process has been completed to account for any drift in component characteristics and is under microprocessor control. • Heating element for GT cartridges and tip heater cartridges have been designed and controlled to meet IPC requirement of ±10⁰C temperature delta. •The life of the RTD temperature sensing element embedded in the cartridge is much longer than the cartridge itself. • To meet tighter specification needs, GT systems offer a user-configurable temperature offset feature.

Q - Does the GT system use SmartHeat technology?
A - While the GT units use an inductive heater, these heaters are not controlled by the Curie Point principle. A RTD temperature sensor and an advanced PID algorithm regulate the tip temperature.
