Point 2-b: For HAKKO FX-300

Point 2-a.
Method for setting correct temperature (offset value)

HAKKO FX-301 is equipped with a digital indicator of pot temperature to enable correct temperature control.

Temperature measurement method

Connect the temperature probe (No. A1310) for solder pot to the HAKKO FG-101/HAKKO FG-100 and insert the end into the center of the solder in the pot to measure the temperature.

Offset value setting method

The temperature indicated on the FX-301 and the measured temperature are sometimes different depending on the work environment. In this case, change the offset value.


Point 2-b.
Method for setting correct temperature

HAKKO FX-300 is an analog-type soldering pot in which temperature is adjusted by turning a knob.

Knob temperature indication

The knob temperature indication is a reference temperature. Note that actual temperature may vary depending on individual product differences and usage methods.
