What is the difference in using a soldering iron vs a soldering station? And what is the difference between open vs close loop temperature control?
- Mostly no temperature control
- If there is some temperature control in most cases it will be open loop
- Tip temperature becoming very high when not in use and will settle down to some point depending on soldering objects mass, room temperature etc. …
- Tip temperature is not predictable, depending on power of the soldering iron and outside factors
- High tip temperature can be stressful for soldering object
- High temperature will lead to tip oxidation and premature failure
- User will need different irons for different jobs, e.g. a stronger one for soldering wires and lower power unit for fine jobs
- Temperature control is standard (open or closed loop)
- Controllable tip temperature
- Depending on the controller quality, it will keep tip temperature in defined boundaries
- The tip will not become unnecessarily hot
- Longer tip life span
- For a different job you will just need a different tip
- Can offer functions like calibration, networking, preserving energy, controlling of other soldering equipment ….
