What's changed in this version?

Soldering Iron Controller for JBC - v3.2

  • NEW:
    • Temperature compensation: The assembled controllers now have an internal temperature sensor for compensating ambient temperature.
    • Cutoff voltage: You can now select a cutoff voltage for the controller. Very useful when powering from LiPo batteries. Cutoff voltage selectable between 2*-6S LiPo (6.2V - 18.6V). [*Note: 2S only supported with Booster option]
    • Iron stand support: Required hardware and software support added for detecting when the iron is in the stand. Note that we don't offer a iron stand (yet!). You can add a microswitch to any stand for detection.
    • Optional modules: Extra functionality for specific needs now possible with optional modules. Not everyone needs these, so we made it optional. If you order with a new controller, we'll install it before shipment. Modules are also user installable and comes mounted on back panels. You can install it via simply replacing the old back panel with your new module. All you need is a 2mm hex driver for back panel screws. Plug and play! Modules currently only offered for DC units.
    • Reinforced front panel: The handle socket and control knob also now attached mechanically to the front panel for extra durability.
    • Aluminum back panel: The back panel that carries the power input and switch is now machined from lightweight yet durable aluminum. Also available for older units; contact us for details.
  • IMPROVED:
    • Control loop: Re-tuned, now faster and more responsive.
    • Display: Screen drawing routines are optimized for faster screen refresh as possible.
    • Sleep mode: When in sleep mode, the controller now wakes up if the iron is plugged or unplugged. Same applies for stand detection.
  • CHANGED:
    • Assembled units: Assembled units has newly designed PCBs optimized for production efficiency. Iron handle sockets are directly mounted on these, consequently the sockets are not interchangeable; hence the iron type. In other words; if you get an assembled JBC unit, converting it to a T12 is not possible; or vice versa.
    • DIY PCBs: We are still offering "DIY PCB"s and they support both T245 and T12. Read the details below.

General Specifications and Features

  • Works with 9-25V DC or 110-220V AC (RC power supplies, computer PSUs, 3-6S LiPo (2S possible with Booster option), car lighter receptable…)
  • Fast but not furious: Heats up in as low as 3 seconds (if using DC 24V). Can very precisely regulate its heating power.
  • Up to 200W heating power (@ DC 24V)
  • Goes to sleep if left on (adjustable).
  • Power limit: You can lower the used heating power on menu on demand. This enables using very small DC bricks/batteries; heating takes longer but you can finish the job. For DC controllers.
  • Starting temperature: Selectable power-on temperature, selections available for leaded/lead-free solders and more. It can remember the last used temperature as well (default setting).
  • Sleep: Selectable intervals or can be disabled.
  • Protection: If provided input voltage is out of allowed range, it will warns you.

Dimensions:

  • DC powered controllers: 110x55x50mm
  • AC/DC powered controllers: 110x155x50mm

Please select what you need:

  • Assembled Controllers: will only include a fully assembled controller. No power cable included. For JBC handle and tips, please refer to your local authorized JBC distributor. Power plug and cable information is located below.
  • DIY PCB: Includes one populated PCB, which you can use with T12 and JBC C245 tips. For DIY use only, DIY support will provided by designer.

Optional Modules

  • Polarity protection module: Protects the unit from blunders. If you love using your controller with crocodile clips or variety of power supplies; you may want this. Available now, if you purchase with a new DC controller, it'll come preinstalled.
  • Booster module: Extends the input voltage range from 9-25V to 6-25V. Enables using 2S LiPo batteries with your controller. Fits right in your controller, takes no extra space. Combined with the new cutoff voltage feature, it is a perfect portable solution. Also provides input polarity protection. Maximum input current is 15A. Available now, if you purchase with a new DC controller, it'll come preinstalled.

How to install modules

DIY PCB info

Is our front panel design, control knob, DC socket or enclosure choice isn't fitting your requirements? The DIY PCB is the answer; use it as the "core" of your custom design. PCB is good but you don't like the GUI? Develop your own firmware, you don't even need to have an AVR programmer -- our firmware has a bootloader! Don't know programming too much? DIY PCB is also Arduino compatible; upload your "sketch". It's a cliche but sky is the limit (as soldering irons can go).

The T12/T245 switchability function is also now offered exclusively on DIY PCB's. Since sockets are different, switching between different type of tips was required the DIY effort and a new front panel anyway; nothing is changed on that aspect.

This option comes with one populated and tested PCB. You will also get our DIY manual delivered to your e-mail.
DIY PCB's does not have temperature sensor, stand detection feature and they are not compatible with optional modules. It is the same PCB that powered our previous-gen controllers.
