SOLAR PANEL BATTERY
J2 LED Lighting, LLC introduces the Denryo SA-BA10 solar charge controller intended
for solar-powered LED lighting applications. The
SA-BA10 is a Japanese engineered controller with
sophisticated battery charge control ability in a
simple to use lightweight and robust module.
The SA-BA10 is rated at 10 amps maximum
solar panel current for a 12 volt DC system. The
controller can typically support up to a 170 watt
Beta LAYOUT Ltd. has developed a cost-effective printed circuit
board (PCB) assembly kit enabling
PCB designers, universities, labs, and
home hobbyists to hand assemble
SMD components utilizing a toaster
oven. For less than $406, any small
space can become a PCB assembly
To control and establish uniquely designed solder
profiles is the US generation Reflow-Controller (V3) Pro,
which can be used in conjunction with a basic toaster
oven to create the temperature profile needed to reflow
components and create professional assembled boards.
Other aspects include:
• Learning the profile and having five pre-selected
profiles digitally displayed.
• With the press of a button, a profile can be
repeated time and time again promoting
component soldering consistency.
• Base values can be easily adjusted for various reflow
The Reflow-Controller (V3) allows a desired pre-heat
phase to solder paste melting phase, avoiding mechanical
stresses on the PCB and components.
After preliminary heating, the temperature is increased
to just under the soldering temperature. This allows the
volatile components of the flux to escape, eliminating
blistering. As the heat increases, the flux melts forming a
connection between the components and PCB. The
soldering temperature is accurately adhered to during the
soldering phase, so that the PCB is not damaged due to
To complete the kit, users can take advantage of free
laser SMD stencils offered by Beta LAYOUT. To secure the
stencil and enable precise solder paste applications, a
magnetic workbench is also available. The final result is
components are easily assembled to the paste and
reflowed in the oven.
