OXFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2015) - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has introduced the WXR 3 range of all-in-one rework stations, the latest additions to Weller's WX family of products. Compatible with all of Weller's WX 'intelligent' tools, the WXR 3 is a 600W 3-channel rework offering exceptional performance and a number of new innovative features including traceability and bench top control. These stations are very competitively priced and are in stock ready for rapid despatch. Extending the large range of Weller soldering equipment available from RS, the new WXR 3 provides a cost-effective way to acquire combined soldering, desoldering and hot air capabilities for a wide range of applications including laboratory or production use.

Three different kits are available that offer the choice of 65W or 120W WXP soldering irons, 120W horizontal (WXDP) or vertical-use (WXDV) desoldering tools and a 200W WXHAP Hot Air Pencil. All the kits, WXR 3030, WXR 3031 and WXR 3032, feature a self-contained vacuum air pump, a vacuum pickup unit that allows accurate component placement, WX tools with motion sensor control, and three safety rests.

The 600W WXR 3 power unit common to all the kits features intelligent power management to maintain optimum tool temperatures with the least energy consumption for increased service life and economy. The WXR 3 can also be purchased separately, without tools or accessories, for customers wanting to upgrade at the lowest cost by connecting their existing Weller WX tools to the all-in-one power unit.
