I still think that the version 1 is really convenient, using the T12 tips: cheap, fast, powerful. It can be grounded and the standby feature can be easily done without any sensor:

T12 is good, but C245 is more capable and C210 gives more precision.
Recently tried C210031 and it's an amazing tool, can perform almost as C245945 but allows working in a very tight spots.

I also like the fact one can use tweezers. Not that I have a set yet, but still :-)

I am currently building a Unisolder board so far it boots and recognises my iron but in the calibration menu r shows as 0 always, and if i connect my iron the tip heats up but there is no control and the board shows room temp for the iron temp any ideas?

Sorry for not answering for a long time, but that problem is a one of most discussed here. You need to check old posts starting with joey120373 at page 166-167.

Hello, everyone
after a lot of hard work I finally finished my project on Unisolder station and desoldering pump. I applied a few pictures to show my project.
I thank the people who develop it and Sparky who created it. Works wonderfully.

Hi everybody,

I use an optical sensor for the holder. When SLEEP=OFF, the iron goes to the set HOLDER TEMP. But if I activate SLEEP, the HOLDER TEMP is ignored, and the iron goes to SLEEP temp as soon as I put it in the stand. Is this normal behavior? The iron goes to STANDBY without issue.

Hello milen, for first time you mentioned about that, I thought. you are going to rebuild the unisolder, now I know what you mean.
Good add on to your lab.
Very good job and precise work.
About smoke absorber, you should add some carbon filter, or you may be have it somewhere behind.

Hello Doomedahab, my first try with sensing circuit was with the same confuse. You can read for it on the page 93.
In the menu you have sleep time - it is a delay for its activation. If you increase it then you can see the difference.

Ah, so the delay in the menu is in SECONDS, not MINUTES? I will try tonight, it would explain the behaviour I am seeing because I only tried 1 and 2 seconds delay because I thought the delay from HOLDER TEMP to SLEEP was in minutes, just like the standby time.

Edited to add: It works as expected now, thanks Minkok! This has been bugging me for months :)
