Thermal Profilers

- SuperM.O.L.E® Gold

SuperM.O.L.E® Gold is the profiler of choice! Chosen by virtually every one of the world’s top 100 electronics manufacturing companies. Compact and very easy to use, the SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold offers enhanced 6-channel measurement with M.O.L.E.® MAP Software.
- SuperM.O.L.E® Gold 2

SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold 2 continues the legacy of the original SuperM.O.L.E® Gold Thermal Profiler. With all the power of a MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20, it retains the same form factor, thermocouple connector type, channel count (6), and RIDER-product compatibility.

The core functionality enhancements include:

  • Waste-No Runs: New ECD Technology : color-coded channel indicators PLUS individual channel LEDs on profiler
    • RED indicates channel is “active”, as configured in the software, and
    • GREEN indicates that thermocouple is plugged in and a complete circuit
    OK Button” compares a thermal profile to spec & gives a GO or NO-GO decision SuperM.O.L.E.® Gold. Estimated 4-5 year battery-life
  • Save Steps: 96 Thermal Profile storage let's you download when you are ready
  • Built-in patented “
  • Protect your Time & Profiler: health Indicators (Core Temperature; Battery state; RF) help prevent wasted time and damage
  • Auto Detect: Thermal Profiler automatically recognizes the RIDER 2 series process test pallets
  • Optional 2-Way RF is pre-plumbed and available at time of purchase or future upgrade
  • Single-piece construction: no separate battery module; ~5x charge-life of current
  • Easy to Use: Fast upload, download and charge through USB
- MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20

Do you demand the highest density of thermocouples placement possible on your Hi-Reliability, High-Value PCB? ECD's got your Spec! Do you expect a software package that flexes with your workflow, providing customizable data extractions, Imports of your .MDM M.O.L.E. libraries and compatibility with your intranet, Excel, and all ECD M.O.L.E.® profilers? The MEGAM.O.L.E.® delivers your specifications in a sleek 7.2mm thin package with patented productivity enhancing features that will give you the edge in R&D decision making to WOW Management, Customers and your OEM-EMS QA linkage.
- V-M.O.L.E.®

The V-M.O.L.E.® is a full-featured compact thermal profiler that belies its sophistication in an easy-to-use 3-channel Mini-thermocouple configuration. Ideal for VERIFICATION of PCB profile performance, 3 channels give you Hot, Cold and Sensitive component data for verifying the correct oven settings. V-M.O.L.E.® also boasts the same powerful M.O.L.E.® MAP softwarecreated for the MEGAM.O.L.E.® 20 thermal profiler, including the Target-10 feature, and of course, the patented “OK-Button”….

…The world's only one-touch Go/No-Go indicator of profile compliance to pre-programmed specification.

V-M.O.L.E.® is both RoHS compatible and compliant.Time is money. V-M.O.L.E.® saves both!

Process Test Pallets

- WaveRIDER®NL 2

The wave soldering process is one of the most challenging procedures to set up. The ECD WaveRIDER® NL 2 greatly simplifies wave solder set up and ensures perfect repeatability, time after time. Board recipe preheat temperatures, conveyor speed, wave height, contact times and parallelism are all measured and monitored using the WaveRIDER® NL 2 process pallet.

Your company may have lost thru-hole soldering expertise over time through attrition.  A WaveRIDER kit has much of this intelligence built-in and will help you exceed quality demands and reduce rework headaches the first week you begin using it. Start now by downloading the Expert's Guide to Wave Soldering  and begin troubleshooting your Wave Soldering process with Expert Guidance…then take the next step to Quality Assurance with your own WaveRIDER® NL 2.


- OvenRIDER® NL 2

Look to ECD’s OvenRIDER® NL 2* if you need to VERIFY an oven’s performance:

  • post-maintenance
  • pre-production
  • pre-purchase
  • pre-repair

Regardless of the recipe and what your oven's controls indicate, what your PCB actually experiences at board-level as it goes through the oven can be SIGNIFICANTLY different. Achieve convection reflow oven Verification by separating zonal temperatures from convective heat flow efficiency while verifying conveyor speed for a true picture of oven Lead-Free performance consistency.

Profile the oven instead of the circuit board to ensure the reflow oven is capable of continually performing your board recipes. Built-In Statistical Process Control makes OvenRIDER® a superior 'First-Off' tool compared to an overused 'Golden Board', with no thermocouples to attach. The pallet material is designed to withstand thousands of passes through the oven – try that with a PCB!

The patented OvenRIDER® travels through your oven with a M.O.L.E.® inside collecting data for analysis and SPC charting. A combination of thermal and process sensors measure oven performance, delivering consistent data that can be used to identify modest trends which may be developing, or serious conditions that have already arrived. Simple PCB profiling cannot detect all the subtleties which can have a profound effect on PCB production quality.

There are many benefits to utilizing OvenRIDER's power to verify process conditions, or to validate an oven purchasing decision. Contact us to discuss, or simply go to Superstore and get your boost to Quality Assurance started today.
