The KICstart²™ thermal profiler utilizes core technologies developed by KIC, the world’s premier thermal profiling company,
and is supported by KIC’s worldwide organization. Packaging these innovative technologies into a low-cost system,
the KICstart² is an ideal cost effective thermal profiler.
Ease of Use
The KICstart² profiler has everything you need to quickly acquire an accurate profile, without complicated features that can slow
you down. For applications where all you want is your product’s thermal profile, immediately with no fuss, the KICstart² is for you.
The patented design concept automatically identifies the location of each oven heating zone, so no or few measurements
are required. This design automatically corrects for different TC locations on the part, aligning them for improved profile graph viewing.
Production down time is reduced when using the Manual Prediction software which enables the process engineer an instant
“trial and error” capability when searching for more suitable oven recipes. The profiling data is automatically transferred to a
PC when plugging in the USB cable. With its easy to use and intuitive software, new personnel can be trained in record time.
Instant Process Analysis
Once your profile has completed, the KICstart² automatically analyzes your process using the Process Window
Index™ (PWI™). The PWI is a single number that measures how well your profile fits within your product’s thermal process window
(See the Process Window Index data sheet for details). The PWI provides an instant and objective conclusion whether your product
profile is in spec, eliminating guesswork and opinion from process analysis. This helps you ensure that all your products on
all your lines are manufactured with measurable, consistent quality.
Reliable and Robust Thermal Profiler
The superior accuracy and reliability of the KICstart² is nothing less than you would expect from KIC’s award winning product line.
The KICstart² is a six thermocouple datalogger unit that utilizes solid state technology designed to withstand the daily or weekly
thermal cycles for years to come, for both lead- free and leaded assemblies.
