Description: This is a great step up from the basic soldering stations from Radio Shack or wherever you picked up a cheap iron because your last one broke right in the middle of a project.
Unit includes 220V base station, iron, iron holder, and sponge. We can't say enough good things about this iron - set the iron temp to 480°C and forget it. It's the iron that we recommend to our friends who've been bitten by the electronics bug. It's just a workhorse!
The unit takes around 20 seconds to heat up.
The red LED on the front will be constantly on while the iron is heating up. Then the LED will start to pulse slowly (on for around three seconds, off for around three seconds, repeat). This LED indicates that the iron has reached and is maintaining a constant temperature (also called a control loop or feedback loop).
