DIY PID-controlled soldering hotplate
posted February 9 2011 19:21.39 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Herctrap always sends us videos that he stumbles upon. This time, he sent us this home-made device, for SMD parts re-working and -perhaps- soldering as well. I really did not know this technique, so i think that, although i there is not any How-to info from the maker (dammitdarrell) which is always disappointing, this is a nice idea for those who work with SMDs. The make is very simple, the PID controller is a commercial type with input for a thermocouple (K-type most probably). Two 300w cartage heaters are used to heat the aluminum block, controlled by a relay. Notice that the relay sparks upon arming, which means that either you need to use a solid state relay, or a bigger load relay. The heated plate will pre-heat the PCB to work with SMDs easier. The hot-air gun is a must as always... Thanks [herc]
