BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the alternative energy and electronics manufacturing markets, announced today the release of version 5.0 of its WINCON™ control system software. WINCON is used in conjunction with BTU’s proprietary Intellimax™ control board on all BTU systems including the PYRAMAX family of convection reflow ovens. 

Besides Windows 7 compatibility, many new features are included in WINCON 5.0 including dual process capabilities, maintenance manager and OPC functions. Dual process capabilities increases the functionality of PYRAMAX dual lane dual speed systems, allowing speed and rail set point changes on one lane while the other lane continues to process product maximizing throughput. Equipment maintenance reminders are provided through the maintenance manager function, providing customers a default maintenance plan or allowing them to use their own.  The OPC function is an alternative to GEM Host and provides a way for customers to extract data from the system using OPC clients. 

WINCON 5.0 will be available on all new BTU systems and is available for upgrade on most systems in the field. For more information about BTU’s WINCON control system, meet company representatives in Booth #3409 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled from February 28-March 1, 2012, at the San Diego Convention Center in California or visit www.btu.com.
