The Missing Link. The world´s first IoT soldering station.
Finally, complete traceability in hand soldering. 100 years after the patent application of the first electric soldering iron by company founder Ernst Sachs, Ersa has reinvented hand soldering - for the digital age. The i-CON TRACE is the world´s first fully networkable soldering station. Thanks to integrated WLAN, Bluetooth and network card, it can be fully integrated into MES-controlled production processes, making the complete hand soldering process traceable and documentable.
With the i-CON TRACE, Ersa offers the first soldering station specifically for use in the digitally networked environment and seamless traceability in hand soldering. With integrated WLAN, Bluetooth and expandable network card, it offers unprecedented connectivity. The ERSA TRACE COCKPIT operating software is available free of charge as a download and is only installed once centrally on the customer´s server. As soon as a soldering station is integrated into the company network, all mobile devices in the company network can access and communicate with the soldering stations via web browser.
Among others, the server-based communication concept makes it much easier to manage individual soldering stations through connectivity: firmware updates, calibration intervals and much more can be carried out and monitored centrally from one computer.
Fully comprehensive MES connection
Complete process data documentation is a key feature of future electrical production. The i-CON TRACE closes the last gap in the hand soldering process and can be completely self-integrated into MES-controlled production processes. For example, a recording of the entire soldering task can already be downloaded via a desired file format and stored in a higher-level control system. In the future, even real-time communication between the soldering station and the customer´s MES will be possible.
Tip change in record time
Ersa offers a variety of different shapes and sizes of soldering tips for different soldering applications. Even for special applications, customized tip shapes are no problem. Tip´n´Turn is the patented concept for combining heating element and soldering tip, which enables tip change in record time.
Each tip has a bayonet lock which, together with the multifunctional storage stand, allows the soldering tip to be changed particularly quickly and safely. Simply place the soldering iron in one of the openings provided and turn it by approx. 10° - and you can remove the old soldering tip and apply a new, matching tip. This can be done by hand even without the deposit stand. Even when hot
