CXG 862 - 1500W hot air station - odd induction claims

(1/3) > >>

Probably a misleading mistranslation, but this is what they've claimed:
- "eddy current desoldering station" with "induction temperature rise"
- 128L/min
- 1500W

The 862 is borrowed from the Atten number (Quick 861 -> Atten 862, CXG 861). So most likely it is just another 862 clone.
The optional soldering plug in is a 24V JBC clone, nothing to see there (CXG 245). They claim that is induction too  ::)

Even if it did somehow use induction heating, would there be any benefit in a hot air station? I can't see much benefit.

The induction heating appears to be limited only to the soldering handpiece, for which is does have many advantages. Possibly loosely similar to the Metcal GT series. It's more responsive since the tip can be heated more effectively.

They are clearly just lying then, as the tips are standard JBC 245 tips.
It looks like the heater cartridge is the same 5 pins as the Quick too. Just that two pins on the quick are female, and on the CXG are male (attached photo is from Quick).

SteveyG:
Agreed, complete lies then!

Hi guys. I just bought that CXG862 and I can say it is very good indeed. I replaced my 20y old BEB852 ( kept for a spare). What I got is a very nice hot air blower and   handle for C210
( I am waiting for a 245 one) at a very good price ( only soldering iron if you order is at that price). Of course, I have a main soldering iron (Unisolder) and that will be an add-on to my Lab.
Now what bothers you is not what you think it is - a Chinese explanation, it is just a human body detection sensor for the hot air handle.
 What I do not like is the sleep vibration detection of the iron handle setted to 30s in a rest position ( understandable), anyway it works fine. And a Chinese user manual, for a station you really need to personalize. It needs firmware polishing, but it is a very nice device. Inside everything is nicely simple and configured, with a decent board, STM32 MCU.
Do not ask me for pics or a review, I just wanted to give my impression and in a fair way introduce you to that device.
