For many years, the Weller WX series has been a leading soldering and desoldering station. Can this great soldering technology get any better? Obviously, it can. Check it out yourself.

The new Weller WXsmart soldering station takes unique features and capabilities even further to meet the most demanding industrial needs. It offers maximum connectivity, supports Internet of Things (IoT) standards for full traceability even via mobile devices and comes with simple remote control.

The WXair module has extended the soldering station

The WXsmart soldering station can be expanded with the new WXair module, which creates a complete “standard” as well as a hot air soldering and desoldering workstation. As a result, it has a power of 300 W and 2 soldering channels – 1 air and 1 vacuum channel. 

Since the Weller WXsmart is compatible with all WX series tools, you can connect a total of 16 different tools to it. 

Practical tip: The WXsmart soldering station is compatible with all tools from the WX series. For example, WXMT, WXP65 and the like.

It is also compatible with: 

Weller WXsmart’s intelligent features are undoubtedly outstanding

The WXsmart soldering station includes customizable parameter settings for up to 10 parameters and intelligent tool identification. The new smart tips (cartridge) offer several new functions thanks to the integrated chip in each soldering tip.

The following practical functions and features got SOS electronic attention when testing the WXsmart soldering station: 

  • extremely fast heating time (only 3 seconds), excellent heat transfer and short regeneration time,
  • automatic identification of the soldering tip,
  • tip locking function for complete process control,
  • unique individual serial number for full traceability.

You can also appreciate the fact that the soldering station includes all the standard interfaces – WiFi, LAN, USB and 2 x RS 232.

Soldering station “all-in-one” 

The “all-in-one” solution acts as the brain of the workstation, combining all soldering operations into one station. You don’t need another station – all soldering, desoldering and hot air applications, from the smallest to the largest components, can be covered by the WXsmart platform.

The platform fully supports Smart Soldering 4.0 with smart tips and tools that save costs, time, and space.

WXsmart is a centralized control system that manages several devices at once: 

  • hot air/vacuum WXair module,
  • fume extraction,
  • preheating plate,
  • soldering bath,
  • cooperates with the optional WCU calibration unit (auto-calibration).

Extremely user-friendly interface and a sizable full-color display  

Weller WXsmart is a completely new, highly intuitive user interface.

The new integrated colour display allows you to monitor power and temperature graphs in real-time. This makes using the station extremely pleasant.

Full ESD protection

Weller is the only manufacturer that offers a fully ESD-safe manual soldering platform. The large, patented colour glass 4.3-inch TFT touch screen is the only screen on the manual soldering market that is truly ESD-safe and heat resistant, so you don’t have to worry about it getting damaged by hot soldering tools. Moreover, it has been optimized for use with ESD protective gloves, which we greatly appreciate.

Utilizing the WXsmart app, practical control

Weller WXsmart soldering station can be remotely controlled using the Weller Smart Control App. With total process control, WXsmart offers maximum connectivity and traceability – either on the work desktop or remotely via a tablet or smartphone application. 

Following thorough testing of each function, we particularly value the following qualities and advantages: 

  • the highest security standards (TLS encryption),
  • two-factor authentication (2FA),
  • mobile monitoring of performance and temperature graphs in real-time via tablet or mobile phone,
  • temperature setting, turning the tool on/off and the possibility of control via an intuitive instrument panel on a computer monitor or on control screens,
  • smart soldering tips.

Interesting fact: The soldering station is equipped with a remote locking function for smart soldering tools, so only an authorized person can make any changes to the settings.

Automatic calibration

Thanks to the connection with the WCU – Weller Calibration Unit – Weller High Precision Temperature Measurement Device, we performed automatic calibration very quickly and easily. Every user will certainly appreciate this option. 

This concludes our analysis of the Weller WXsmart soldering station

The Weller WXsmart soldering station proved to be a suitable solution even for the most demanding users. We highlight its high quality, intuitive modern control, many smart functions and, above all, a multifunctional solution. All this together help to save costs, time, and space, but also facilitate work and increase safety at work.
