Metcal's GT120-HP-T6 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 workstand 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.
GT120 is a single port soldering station with best in class performance, 120 watts of power, and ideal for single iron applications on the production line. The GT120 is supplied with a replaceable 120W external power supply allowing for a more compact design to save space on the bench and improve the quality and life of the system.

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.
