Exceptional ease of use and perfect performance – the latest in hot air technology

With the WTHA 1, Weller Tools GmbH is pre­sent­ing the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of hot air sta­tions, boast­ing a power of 900 watts.

The best hot air sta­tion on the mar­ket
The Weller WTHA 1 hot air sta­tion is the first model on the mar­ket to have a de­tailed LC dis­play with self-ex­plana­tory user nav­i­ga­tion for in­tu­itive op­er­abil­ity. The WTHA 1 is cur­rently the best hot air sta­tion on the mar­ket in its price seg­ment in terms of per­for­mance, ease of use and er­gonom­ics. A built-in tur­bine pro­duces up to 100 litres of hot air, and the new tan­dem con­trol sys­tem with a dual sen­sor sys­tem en­sures that this model per­forms twice as well as its pre­de­ces­sor.

Clear menu struc­ture
The WTHA 1 hot air sta­tion is op­er­ated using five but­tons on the front. A clear menu struc­ture which is easy to nav­i­gate al­lows quick and easy ac­cess to all func­tions. The menu can be used to pre­de­fine up to five pre­sets, al­low­ing air quan­tity, tem­per­a­ture and time to be in­di­vid­u­ally set and saved. The saved tem­per­a­ture pro­files can be linked with each other and im­ple­mented suc­ces­sively via the pro­file mode. This pro­tects the in­di­vid­ual com­po­nents while they are being worked, typ­i­cally when used in re­work processes.

IPC stan­dards are stan­dard
The WTHA 1 meets all of the cur­rent IPC stan­dards and is par­tic­u­larly suited to de­mand­ing sol­der­ing tasks, for in­stance when a cer­tain gra­di­ent has to be com­plied with in order to avoid dam­ag­ing the com­po­nents. "We fo­cused on user-friend­li­ness, high per­for­mance and er­gonom­ics dur­ing de­vel­op­ment," ex­plained Gert Mittmann, R&D Man­ager.

The mains switch on the WTHA 1 is fit­ted to the front of the sta­tion, mean­ing that it is user-friendly and can be ac­cessed con­ve­niently. The han­dle of the hot air iron has an er­gonomic shape and is equipped with a prac­ti­cal fin­ger-op­er­ated ac­ti­va­tion switch. The 90 cm long, flex­i­ble sil­i­cone hose is heat-re­sis­tant and has an out­let at the front to pro­vide in­creased safety at the work­place.The hot air iron can be po­si­tioned in two ori­en­ta­tions on the safety sup­port, which can be in­stalled on ei­ther side, there­fore mak­ing the WTHA 1 ide­ally suited to one-handed sol­der­ing tasks too. In ad­di­tional an in­ter­face for an op­tional foot-op­er­ated switch and a heat-re­sis­tant sil­i­cone pad as a stor­age op­tion on the sta­tion (for tools or noz­zles, for ex­am­ple) round off the sta­tions er­gonomic fea­tures.
All sta­tions in the WL line can be stacked on the WTHA 1 hot air sta­tion, there­fore sav­ing valu­able space at the work­place.
