Essemtec Premieres RO-Control, RO-Soft 7 Software Print E-mail

RO-Control and RO-Soft 7 software simulate, control and document RO300 and RO400 series reflow and curing ovens and processes. RO-Control 7 controls and regulates oven parameters such as zone temperatures, feed rate and conveyor width. Automatically set up certain ovens and start production. Status messages displayed graphically, and incoming and outgoing boards are monitored. Auto-save feature regularly captures temperature and speed values in a CSV type file. Operator actions are logged, and software modules can be released to specific individuals. Based on temperature settings, product data and throughput expectations, RO-Control simulates expected temperature profile, and graphically compares to measured values and solder paste specifications. Both packages measure real temperature profiles directly on the PCB using thermocouples. Multiple measurements can be overlaid to detect deviations. All data can be exported as CSV and graphics. Both packages require Windows 7 and can be upgraded from older versions. Language support now includes Polish.
