Hakko FR872-03 IR PC Board Preheater

by Hakko
SKU h-FR872-03

The Hakko FR-872 Infrared 4-Bank sleek low profile, bench top PC Board Preheater is especially useful on medium to high-mass board assemblies.


The FR-872 is a low profile, bench-top PCBoard preheater designed to elevate the temperature of printed circuit board assemblies so that components on them can be soldered and de-soldered more easily, and with improved results. This is particularly useful on medium to high-mass board assemblies, which can “heat-sink” a significant amount of energy being supplied by a soldering iron tip, or handheld hot air tool. The FR-872 is particularly useful when soldering Pb-Free assemblies.

• High efficiency carbon filament IR heating lamps

• 4 independent switchable heat zones

• 8.8 x 10.5 in (224 x 266 mm) effective heating area

• Manual or Auto operation modes

• Preheat controlled by Power percentage or Thermocouple for closed-loop feeback of the PCB heating

• Ramp Control that controls the ramp rate of the PCB when using either of the thermocouple modes of temperature control

• Soft EPO to protect assemblies

• Automatic operation following a 3-heating zone profile that can be prograamed into the system (with up to 20 possible profiles)

• Faster than ceramic IR heating
