HAKKO FG101 MULTI PURPOSE THERMOMETER
(with calibration certificate).
One tester for all your soldering iron maintenance needs.
What should you check when doing a daily inspection of your soldering iron?
Grounded soldering irons are maintained by inspecting leak voltage,
tip-to ground resistance, and tip temperature.
Grounded soldering irons cannot be maintained by checking insulation resistance.
This method was used in the past in order to find out the level of leak current.
What is 'Leak voltage'?
Leak current is the current that leaks from the tip to a board or device.
Leak voltage is a specific measurement of the level of this current.
The leakage can adversely affect delicate devices, so it is
necessary to check leak voltage on a daily basis.
What is 'Tip-to-ground resistance'?
Most leak current flows from the tip via the ground wire to the
outlet ground terminal, and is prevented from affecting the device.
Because of this, tip-to-ground resistance is another important issue
that must be checked daily.
Why is tip temperature important?
As the tip, element cover and other parts oxidize, heat conduction
deteriorates and the tip temperature becomes lower.
This causes the difficulty of soldering.
Therefore, tip temperature should be inspected daily to have better soldering.
Maximum current value measured with HAKKO FG-101
100V to 120V 5A
220V to 240V 3A
Note: HAKKO FG-101 is broken when beyond maximum current value is measured.
In addition to traditional features, the FG-101 comes with two new functions:
MAX HOLD and AUTO ZERO.
MAX HOLD Function: Constantly displays the maximum temperature.
AUTOZERO Function: Automatically corrects zero point error of measuring instruments.
Traditional Features Lead-free sensor.
Measures leak voltage by True Root Mean Square (TRMS).
Highly reliable - Resistant to drift and changes in temperature.
MAX HOLD Function
When the MAX HOLD function is on, the maximum temperature
is constantly displayed on the LCD.
If the MAX HOLD button is pressed for a short time (less than 1 second)
the maximum temperature is updated.
If the button is pressed for a long time (1 second or longer)
the MAX HOLD function turns off.
AUTO ZERO Function
The zero point error of measuring instruments can be corrected by simply
pressing the AUTO ZERO button and waiting for the display to return to normal.

(According to IEC/UL61010-1)
*1 Temperature sensor (191-212) can only be used
to measure temperatures below 500ºC (932ºF).
To measure higher temperatures, use an applicable temperature probe
(see "SPARE PARTS and ACCESSORIES").
When the tip is not in contact with the conduction plate.
When a sensor is not attached or burns out,
an alarm symbol of 'Burnout' is displayed.
If this alarm occurs, replace/attach with a new sensor.
The same alarm symbol is also displayed when a value
over the possible measurement range is detected.
