WD1000HPT: Review of Weller’s Newest Solder Station

by Andy on May 5, 2008

Weller WD1000HPT Soldering Station The Weller WD1000HPT station combines top of the line equipment to provide a powerful station that is ideal for high precision soldering and soldering on difficult circuit boards.

The new WP120 soldering pencil is featured with this station. The compact and ergonomic pencil is coupled with a powerful heating element. This iron is a champ at soldering joints that are difficult or hardly accessible.

The WD1000HPT is powered by the Weller WD1M single channel power unit. The unit features three programmable preset buttons that can be used to set specific temperatures such as an idle temperature. Great for production, rework and laboratories, the voltage of this unit is 120V with a temperature range of 150°F – 850°F.

Extending the life of your tip is easier with the WDH10T Stop + Go Safety Rest that’s included with the station. When the iron is placed on the rest, the tip saving function is activated, and when the iron is removed from the rest, the tip temperature returns to the specified temperature.

Specifications for the WD1000HPT:

  • Dimensions: 5.28” x 4.25” x 5.79”
  • Mains voltage supply: 230 V / 120 V / 50/60 Hz
  • Power: 160W
  • Safety class: I (power unit), III (soldering iron)
  • Temperature control: 50°C – 450°C (150°F – 850°F)
  • Temperature accuracy: ± 9°C (± 17°F)
  • Temperature stability: ± 5°C (± 9°F)
  • Soldering tip leakage resistance:< 2 Ω (tip-to-ground)
  • Soldering tip leakage current: < 2 mV (tip-to-ground)

Weller expects the WD1000HPT to be launched sometime in August.
