LEAD-free soldering is on the way. In fact, it's already here if you are exporting soldered components to Europe.
Will your soldering stations work with lead free solder? If not, Wavecom has the solution in the VTSS4 adjustable soldering station from Velleman in Belgium - where they know all about the new European regulations.
The VTSS4 is adjustable between 100 and 450 degrees C at 48 watts to handle virtually all soldering needs both now and in the future.
The standard tip is 1.2mm in diameter but a variety of other tip sizes is available. Lead free solder is also available.
