KIC announces the launch of its KICstart2, a new generation data acquisition thermal profiler. The compact and cost effective profiler takes advantage of KIC’s easy-to-use graphical user interface. The KICstart2 is designed for those companies looking to quickly capture an accurate thermal profile without all of the additional capabilities to optimize the process.
A challenge with most profilers is not the lack of data being collected, but rather the ability to make sense of a large quantity of data. The KICstart2 uses KIC’s powerful Process Window Index (PWI) concept to measure the quality of the profile with a single number. Most companies today are running lean and need equipment that is easy-to-use, with which operators and technicians can be trained easily.
The KICstart2 thermal profiler utilizes core technologies developed by KIC. The patented design concept automatically identifies the location of each reflow and wave solder oven heating zone, so few, if any, measurements are required. Additionally, the KICstart2 automatically corrects for different thermocouple (TC) locations on the part, aligning them for improved profile graph viewing.
