The Pulsar is a proven industry platform that enables the Dip & Look Solderability Test in accordance with the Mil-STD-202, Method 208. The system features a 15 lb-capacity solder pot, a flux station, and X and Z axis control. Designed for lab environments, the table-top system provides high precision PLC motion control, touch screen programming, and PID temperature management for complete process control of the component dip process.
The Pulsar can be configured with a 2nd solder station, enabling lead and lead-free testing. To certify components for storage beyond 12 months, an Photon Steam Aging System can be used to artificially age the components prior to the solderability dip test.
Easy Set-up & Immediate Results
Precise Process Control & Repeatability
Superior Results vs Hand Dipping
Large Solder Bath Maintains Thermal Mass
No Programming Knowledge Required
Meets IPC, ANSI, Mil Specifications
The Pulsar can be combined with a Photon Steam Ager to provide artificial aging prior to the dip and look test. The combination of aging and dip & look testing provides full compliance with the objective IPC, ANSI and MIL solderability test standards.

High Precision | ± .01"
SOLDER MANAGEMENT | DUAL ALLOY READY
The solder pot is constructed of a non-contaminating alloy that is extremely durable, stable and lead-free compatible. The solder is presented as a flat and non-turbulent solder surface for minimal dross production. The 15 pound capacity of the solder pot ensures sufficient solder mass for precision process control; a PID temperature controller regulates the solder temperature up to 350°C within ± 5°C of set point.
The Pulsar can be configured with a 2nd solder station to enable lead and lead-free testing, or alternative temperature testing.
