Our revolutionary technology is able to recover tip temperature extremely quickly. It means the user can work at a lower temperature and improve the quality of soldering. The tip temperature is further reduced thanks to the Sleep and Hibernation modes which increase the tip life by 5. Status Bar 1. Work 2. Sleep 17:14 3.

Before carrying out maintenance or storage, always allow the equipment to cool. 1. Connect the tool to the station port by means of the Converter. 2. Connect your Robot system to the Robot connector (RJ12) of the station. DB9-RJ12 Adapater available only if necessary (Ref: 0013772). 3. Enable the Robot option in the station settings and the notification will be displayed: 4. Set your Robot’s commands according to the Robot Communication Protocol, available on the website www.jbctools.com/jbcsoftware-menu-115.html. - Clean the station screen with a glass cleaner or a damp cloth. - Use a damp cloth to clean the casing and the tool. Alcohol can only be used to clean the metal parts. - Periodically check that the metal parts of the tool and stand are clean so that the station can detect the tool status. Converter Ref. 0002747 Robot Clean periodically - Maintain tip surface clean and tinned prior to storage in order to avoid tip oxidation. Rusty and dirty surfaces reduce heat transfer to the solder joint. Control Unit RS-232 connection - Periodically check all cables and tubes. - Replace a blown fuse as follows: Fuse Update the station software 1. Download the JBC Update File from www.jbctools.com/software.html and save it on a USB flash drive. Preferably one with no other files. JBC Update File 2. Insert the USB flash drive to the station. The icon is diplayed while updating. Fuse holder Fuse holder 1. Pull off the fuse holder and remove the fuse. If necessary use a tool to lever it off. 2. Press the new fuse into the fuse holder and replace it in the station. - Replace any defective or damaged pieces. Use original JBC spare parts only. - Repairs should only be performed by a JBC authorized technical service. 12 13 w w w.jbctools.com Safety Exploded View It is imperative to follow safety guidelines to prevent electric shock, injury, fire or explosion. - Do not use the units for any purpose other than soldering or rework. Incorrect use may cause fire. - The power cord must be plugged into approved bases. Be sure that it is properly grounded before use. When unplugging it, hold the plug, not the wire. - Do not work on electrically live parts. - The tool should be placed in the stand when not in use in order to activate the sleep mode. The soldering tip, the metal part of the tool and the stand may still be hot even when the station is turned off. Handle with care, including when adjusting the stand position. - Do not leave the appliance unattended when it is on. - Do not cover the ventilation grills. Heat can cause inflamable products to ignite. - Use a “non residue” classified flux and avoid contact with skin or eyes to prevent irritation. - Be careful with the fumes produced when soldering. - Keep your workplace clean and tidy. Wear appropriate protective glasses and gloves when working to avoid personal harm. - Utmost care must be taken with liquid tin waste which can cause burns. - This appliance can be used by children over the age of eight and also persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience provided that they have been given adequate supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance and understand the hazards involved. Children must not play with the appliance. - Maintenance must not be carried out by children unless supervised. 14 15 Specifications DDE-1A 120V 50/60Hz. Input fuse: 4A.
