Aoyue 868 hot air station temperature measurements

Done on 2014-06-09. YMMV, because I am guessing performance differs quite a lot between different stations.

Setup

TC kapton-taped to handpiece; tip of TC approx 2mm in front of, and in middle of nozzle. TC + meter have approx 2.5 % max deviation. Measured at approx 21 degC; airco + fan on. Used default (middle size) nozzle.

Action

measure temp at each temp-setting (1..8); start at low air velocity, wait until temp stable, measure, then advance air-velocity until drop in temp w.r.t. previous velocity is >= 20 degC

note: didn't measure temp-settings 7 and 8, since they are considered too high

Result

|           temp  |
