Thermal Profiler supports viewing on mobile devices.
Press Release Summary:
April 29, 2014 - Offering plug-and-play hardware and GUI to facilitate profiling process, K2 accurately measures profiles even in harsh environments. KIC software enables each thermocouple to use its own unique process window, while optimization software automatically suggests best oven setup to process entire PCB and components in spec. Profile data can be viewed on PC as well as authorized Android and Apple mobile devices, while fail-safe software reduces opportunity for error.

KIC to Debut the K2 at NEPCON China 2014, the New Profiler with Apps for Viewing on Mobile Devices
Press release date: April 1, 2014
The K2 builds on KIC’s tradition of a compact and robust hardware that measures profiles accurately, even in harsh environments. The plug-and-play hardware and graphical user interface makes profiling both quick and easy. The KIC software enables each thermocouple to use its own unique process window, while the optimization software automatically suggests the best oven setup to process the entire PCB and components in spec. This convenience, combined with lightening fast speed, allows oven setup in a few seconds.
The profile data measured by the K2 now can be viewed on a PC as well as on authorized Android and Apple mobile devices. The Mobile Profile Viewer App is also WiFi and Bluetooth compatible.
“At KIC we strive to combine the accuracy and power of our profilers with speed and ease of use,” said Bjorn Dahle, President of KIC. “The Mobile Profile Viewer App is the natural next step in the progression of this technology.”
The K2 also features fail-safe software that reduces the opportunity for error. It enables a responsible process engineer to set the quality parameters while letting operators or technicians run the profiles.
