ECD Intros Latest Gen Thermal Profiler
Latest thermal profiler.
Milwaukie, OR — ECD announces is introducing its SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold 2 (SMG2) thermal profiler, the latest in its diverse line of thermal profiling equipment and software. Continuing SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold's legacy as industry workhorse, SMG2 analyzes both old and new thermal profiles from ECD and its competitors, eliminating roadblocks, providing new analyses, increasing ease of use, and protecting against profiling loss.

Design features, including an On/Off button configured to prevent accidentally shutting off the unit and losing profiles, help assure greater yield and throughput speed. LEDs, color-coded to the six thermocouples, indicate right on the profiler whether or not circuits are complete and software activated, eliminating "opens" and wasted runs. n the past, this information was only available through a computer and its software; showing it directly on the profiler substantially reduces operator training time. In addition, the patented "OK Button" — standard on all later-generation ECD profilers — gives operators a clear "Go/No-Go" signal, saving valuable engineering time.

SMG2's MAP® software ensures full compatibility with other profilers (MEGAM.O.L.E.®20, V-M.O.L.E.®, PTP®-VP8 Vapor Phase) and oven monitoring products (WaveRIDER® and OvenRIDER®), overcoming geographical distance, language barriers, and different computers.

For additional cost-effectiveness, SMG2 can also "drive" oven-monitoring pallets such as WaveRIDER and OvenRIDER, plugging into the thermal barrier's internal docking station and eliminating shorting plugs. Sampling speed is automatically adjusted, providing quick and easy oven monitoring on assembly floors, and for many oven OEMS who test their product before shipment.

According to the company, the durable one-piece SMG2 withstands thousands of runs, stores 96 profiles, and seldom needs repair or maintenance, only yearly calibration. RoHS compatible, it includes rechargeable lithium battery, thermal barrier, "Yellow Jacket," USB connection, and K-type thermocouples, providing long life and minimum environmental impact.
