Save Shipping Costs on Select ACL Staticide Static/Resistivity Meters

We’re excited to once again feature a special offer on ACL Staticide’s static/resistivity meters: Free Freight on the ACL 300B Precision Electrostatic Locator, the ACL 380 Resistivity Meter, and the ACL 395 Resistivity Meter. Now through January 31, 2018, get Free UPS Ground Shipping in the contiguous United States on these popular static testing tools.

The ACL 300B Precision Electrostatic Locator offers a quick, reliable way to measure static charges. The 300B can measure static charges from 0 to 30,000 volts, has repeatability of ±1% and accuracy of ±10%, and is designed for close-in repetitive readings. With its hand-held size and accurate results, on-the-spot measurement of static charges is incredibly easy in a variety of static-sensitive environments.

The ACL 380 Resistivity Meter offers lightweight auto-ranging surface resistivity metering for all facets of material production. The 380 can test conductive, dissipative, and insulative surfaces for electrical resistivity according to the ESDA’s parallel resistivity probe method (DIN EN 100 015/1 & ANSI/ESDA-S11.11). The unit has a test range of 103 to 1012+, measuring voltages of 10v and 100v, a resistivity of 103-1012 ohms/square, and a resistance of 103-1012 ohms.

The ACL 395 Resistivity Meter offers high accuracy for all areas of manufacturing and research departments via its sophisticated circuitry and contemporary design and function. The 395 uses a color-coded LED scale and half decade measurements to provide a close indication of the actual value. The unit also features a “warning” stage that alerts the auditor when material is approaching the upper end of the dissipative scale.

Please visit our ACL Staticide Meters Free Shipping promo page to take advantage of this limited-time offer. You may also contact us by phone (800-966-6020), email, or via our Web site.

Hot Air Rework vs. Desoldering Stations: Which One Should You Choose?

Hot Air Rework Stations
There are a few key differences between hot air rework stations and desoldering stations. First, and most notable, is the size of the two different stations. The hot air stations tend to be much larger than the desoldering stations. Thus, to work with hot air, you will need to bring the defective parts to the station. In comparison, the desoldering station can be brought to the parts, which offers much more flexibility. Another noticeable difference between the two stations is their price tag. A hot air station will often carry a heftier price tag because it includes more features and extras than desoldering stations. The key is to find the specific tool that is best for your application needs. Choosing the right tool for the job will save you countless time and money in the long run.

A hot air rework station has many benefits. Because it uses hot air, the station is great for very quick and easy jobs where, perhaps, just one component needs to be removed from a printed circuit board (PCB). The opposite is also true, adding a single part to a PCB is also extremely simple by utilizing hot air to quickly and efficiently return the board to working order. This tool can also be used to fit heat shrink onto wires making it an extremely versatile device.

Desoldering Stations
A desoldering station also offers many benefits for specific applications. These stations provide a great deal of precision with their many features. Their compact size allows these stations to be much more mobile and makes for easier clean up at the end of a job. The simplicity of a desoldering station also makes it an asset to some. Why pay for all the bells and whistles when you only need the device for its basic uses? Desoldering Stations help make reworking PCBs an easier task.

Both types of rework stations offer a variety of benefits and shortfalls. By doing your research you can discover which device fits best in your specific day-to-day needs.

QSource.com offers a wide selection of Hot Air Rework Stations from JBC Tools and Weller®. In addition, we have a variety of nozzles & tips and pencils & handpieces.

Our Desoldering & Rework Stations include models from Hakko, JBC, Metcal, and Weller. We also offer a myriad of accessories and related products such as desoldering braid & desoldering wick, irons & handpieces, and desoldering pumps & solder suckers.
