Ball grid array (BGA) rework specialist MARTIN has recently announced that Infrared temperature (IR) measurement sensors are now available on its EXPERT 10.6 Rework Systems.

The new IR sensors increase the flexibility of the Martin EXPERT 10.6 systema cost-effective rework solution especially suited for the repair of large, high-value PCBs. The system includes a hybrid under-heater and control unit, integrated into a single housing. The hybrid platform combines both infrared and convection heating technologies to achieve outstanding board temperature uniformity, thus minimising temperature-based PCB distortion.

The IR sensor is installed at the Advanced Vision Placement unit. The sensor module uses a laser pointer to indicate the area of measurement on the PCB surface. The sensor mount is easy to unlock and allows the user to swipe the measurement location over the PCB easily. Advantages include ease of use as a monitoring sensor (no need for capton tape), stable and reliable measurement, and for use in preheat and/or closed-loop operations.
