The Weller Magnastat system operates through a ferro-magnetic sensing device which changes its characteristics when specific temperatures are reached. This causes it to either attract or repel a permanent magnet which operates a power supply switch. In this way power to the heating element can be quickly switched on or off to either provide extra power for soldering operations or reduced power when idling.Various pre-selected tip temperatures are available to permit different types of soldering to be undertaken. Working temperature selection is achieved by simply changing the temperature sensing soldering tip.
These are available in temperature ratings of 260°C, 316°C, 370°C, 425°C and 480°C. The tips are made of pure copper for effective heat conductivity. The heating element has an optimal heating effect on the tip. This is possible through high precision of the tubes, the winding and insulation, which means that the heating element should never be gripped with pliers or be hammered in any way. It is quite sufficient to secure the soldering tip by tightening it into the tip sleeve by hand (when the iron is cold).
The solder is an important factor for the quality of soldered joints. The most suitable is copper-free SN 60with a flux core. The flux should be organic and very easily activated. Fluxes with a halogen content should not be used. The soldering operation should be effected in the following order: heating the solder joint then supply the solder between joint and tip.
The solder should never be applied to the tip and then to the soldering joint. Operating temperature (with supplied tip) 370°C. Fitted with UK 13A mains plug.
