Fast temperature profiles
The design of Vapor Phase One allows the user to run fast temperature profiles using a height-adjustable PCB lift.
Custom soldering profiles
The Vapor Phase One can import individual soldering profiles via an SD card. Based on these profiles, heating power and lift position are adapted to different solder pastes and PCB technologies.
This feature shortens the process time and ensures minimal loss of Galden® when the board is removed
With the vapor phase technology, the soldered assembly is generally covered with Galden® residues. Our assembly is kept at a temperature of 120 °C after the soldering process, thus leaving hardly any residues.
The lid to the process chamber lifts automatically to simplify the insertion and removal of PCBs. This also helps to preserve the heat transfer medium.
In addition to a screen that displays real-time temperature data, the Vapor Phase One features a viewing window with internal lighting that allows you to see into the process chamber.
The Vapor Phase One has a variety of safety mechanisms implemented in both software and hardware to ensure a secure usage and soldering process.
Open Source Hardware
We published the source code of the firmware as well as schematics and construction files in our GitHub repository PCB-Arts/vaporphaseone.
