Need to preheat circuit boards?  Wenesco's PowerMax preheaters are designed to retrofit existing wave solder systems, replace or augment existing preheaters, and as a self-contained,stand-alone unit on your work bench.
POWER MAX preheaters utilize powerful radiant heating elements which transfer heat to a target, one inch above the preheater surface, at a rate of 3 deg C/sec
All preheaters include an accurate digital thermostat that displays current temperature and set point  The temperature range is 25C to 300C. An illuminated on- off switch, fuse, and a 5-ft line cord are standard.
