    SKU OK-MX-500DS
    Satisfaction Guarantee

    The Metcal MX-500DS Soldering Desoldering Station utilizes SmartHeat® Technology, wherein each cartridge is equipped with a self-regulating heater which ‘senses’ its own temperature and closely maintains its pre-set idle temperature for the life of the heater-tip. The tip temperature is determined by the inherent metallurgical properties of the heater; no external adjustment or equipment is required. The MX-500 retains switchable dual port, 40W operation while introducing numerous new features in a new housing.

    Metcal MX-500DS Features:

      • Integrated Power Indication Meter: a built in net power meter which will display a graphical and numerical representation of the power applied to the cartridge
      • User Programmable PowerSave Mode: the time to enter PowerSave Mode is adjustable from 10 to 120 minutes
      • Ground Fault Interrupt: AC ground monitor detects power line ground failures and immediately alerts the operator and shuts down the system. Only after the power line ground has been restored, can the MX-500 be restarted and soldering operations can be resumed
      • Universal Power Supply: automatically senses the input line voltage and adjusts accordingly, which allows for worldwide operation without adaptors or a change in performance
      • Compatibility with all MX products: the MX-500 redesign allows full compatibility with existing and previous MX upgrade kits, tip-cartridges, hand-pieces and accessories
      • Greater process control with SmartHeat® Technology
      • Reduced space requirements
