BTU Picks Up Its Second Award for the ENERGY PILOT Software at the IPC APEX EXPO

Feb 25, 2015

BTU International, Inc. announces that it has been awarded a 2015 NPI award in the category of Software – Production for its ENERGY PILOT software. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015, ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

ENERGY PILOT is a feature in the latest release of BTU’s windows-based WINCON™ operating system that is designed to reduce the consumption of electrical power and process gas.  Operation is fully automatic and results in an overall reduction in electrical, air and nitrogen consumption.  The feature is easily upgradeable on older BTU reflow ovens.

The ENERGY PILOT software saves manufacturers money whenever the oven is idle.  Standby mode can save over 25 percent. Sleep mode can be used for longer interruptions saving more than 40 percent.   Long idle periods fully shut down the oven using hibernate mode.  Recovery times are minimized using remote product sensors and SMEMA. 

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
