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

(1/1)

thm_w:
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!
