The ultimate output from a reflow oven is an acceptable thermal profile. The reflow oven is essentially a profile machine. The Probot compliments the reflow oven by automatically recording the profile for each and every processed PCB. On the fly, the profile is compared to the established process window to determine whether it is in spec or not. This occurs in the background without human intervention and without interrupting production. The Probot is programmed by running a manual profile using a KIC profiler.
