Arhi made some videos of his open source soldering iron driver tests.
SID is capable of driving any soldering iron with RTD or ThermoCouple sensor. In this video I’m testing the HAKKO soldering iron and a HAKKO clone iron made by GORDAK.
In the next test he compares the heater/sensor readings to the actual tip temperature of the soldering iron. Check out the second video below.
In this video I’m testing the HAKKO soldering iron while there is external thermometer showing temp from the TC embedded in the tip.
