Research Inc. (Eden Prairie, Minn.) has introduced its modified SpotIR infrared heater series in two models: Model 4150 reaches 250W and 982°C/1800°F. Model 4085 reaches 500W or 750W, depending on lamp type, and 1093°C/2000°F. Designed for use in any application that requires clean, noncontact heat on a small target or object, the systems are typically used in applications involving the heating of thermoplastic components as well as heat staking, metal annealing, soldering and desoldering of electronic components, localized weld stress relief and brazing. Each heater's T3 lamps reportedly heat up and cool down instantly in response to power control signals and can withstand continuous high-temperature operation.
