Electronic Temperature Control for Precise Performance
No matter what your soldering job is, the WESD51's electronic control system lets you set the temperature you need to get the job done right. The soldering temperature is adjustable from 350 to 850 degrees Fahrenheit and is accurately measured to within nine degrees. And the WESD51's innovative built-in heater and sensor combination offers quick heat-up times and temperature recovery for better heat control over the course of your job.
The WESD51's wireless temperature lockout prevents you from raising the temperature beyond what is recommended for a specific workpiece, board, or component. This eliminates the possibility of damaging components by accidentally setting the temperature too high for the job.

More About Weller
Weller Manufacturing Company was founded in 1945 as a family partnership near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Over the years, manufacturers of many types of products – from televisions to washing machines – came to rely on Weller for its quality and reliability. The Weller brand has a long history of innovation. In the 1950's new technology from Weller maintained heat better while lowering energy consumption. Weller continued its innovation for years to come. Legend has it that Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak hand-soldered the circuit boards of the very first Apple computers with Weller tools.
Today, most of the manufacturing for Weller happens at one of two locations. Besigheim, Germany and Queretaro, Mexico. Virtually every major manufacturer of consumer electronics equipment uses Weller tools. Go with the brand that has stood the test of time. Happy soldering!
Digital Soldering Station
From the Manufacturer
This digital soldering station from Weller is an innovative heater and sensor combination that gives you a quick heat-up and rapid temperature recovery. It has a wireless temperature lockout to prevent operators from raising the temperature levels higher than specified for the board or component so if gives you control over the process. The station automatically powers down after 90 minutes of inactivity to prolong tip like and save power.
Top customer reviews
While under normal operation the foam handle of the soldering iron became unusually warm. The temperature also fluctuated to 540°F while it was set to 520°F. When I tinned and cleaned, I noticed that the solder boiled in a way that occurs when the tip is about 600°F doing small solder removal from boards. I placed the tool back into its holder and turned the unit off. After a few minutes I looked at it and, to my surprise, realized the grip had burned away and the handle connecting the sleeve had not only melted but bent.
Tested the soldering pencil, appears to have proper resistance per manual. Weller hasn't responded to a few messages sent via their feedback form. Looks like I'll be stuck shelling out more money to replace the pencil, and testing the base if no resolve.
-- Update. Worked with Amazon to resolve the issue and received a replacement / exchange. Weller typically makes really good product. (Updated from 2 to 3 stars.) Thus far, the new one is working as expected. Many thanks to Amazon for listening and taking care of its customers. Most likely the issue was in the temperature sensor or logic board in the base, but didn't dig in to check.
After looking up the problem on-line, i found a trouble-shooting guide. a couple hours later I found the wand was at issue, dismantling that, I found a short between the heater element and the temp sensor, a stray strand of wire from assembly . So after a lot of time and effort on mu part, it's working again.
BTW: still waiting for a call from tech support.
