JBC AM-2A soldering station
« on: April 06, 2019, 03:16:46 pm »
I work at a calibration instruments production company. I use a JBC AM-2A soldering station there. Any users here?
 It might be 10 years old or so. It has a two-line text-only LCD display.
The manufacturer says almost nothing. https://www.jbctools.com/am-2a-multifunction-station-am-230v-product-1037.html

I use some of the C245 cartridges. I especially like the mini spoon C245-067.
I like it a lot. It is nice to work with. It has a soldering iron, vacuum desoldering iron and a hot air tool.
There are very few photos of the JBC AM-2A station on the internet, is it so old or what?
I was wondering what the heating power is! JBC seems to say nothing on power of their stations with C245 cartridges.  :( :(

I measured the power consumption using a Lidl power meter. https://get.google.com/albumarchive/106264218831814439783/album/AF1QipObWAY-R1lpg_bkcEcuPIVGOQPNuvTzUtKRfbUD
Desoldering iron and hot air tool was off. Here are the results.
No cartridge: 16W
C245 cartridge heating up: 183W
C245 cartridge continuous soldering: 108W
I think this is pretty nice.
