Extra-Large Capacity Erasing Systems

The PC-8820B, PC-8820B-LT, PC-8820C-LT, PC-9920A, PC-9920A-LT and PC-10020-LT systems are the next generation of UV EPROM/wafer erasers!

Superior UV intensity! Faster erasing times! Larger load capacities!

 

 

Specially designed to meet the critical production requirements of high-density EPROMs and wafers, these “super-capacity” units incorporate the latest technological advances in the industry to ensure the highest UV intensities, fastest erasing times and improved safety. Each system is engineered for maximum irradiance uniformity, boasting a nominal initial UV intensity output of 70,000 μW/cm² — producing the quickest and most complete erasure of programmed memory. They provide erasing cycle times as fast as 90 seconds!

 

These units include the same features as our other PC-Series erasing systems plus these additional innovations:

 

  • Advanced UV lamp design — Ultra-high intensity short-wave UV (254 nm), low-pressure mercury vapor quartz grid lamp assemblies meet the highest design and performance specifications
     
  • Increased operating intensity — At least 60% greater throughput than competitive systems
     
  • Exclusive quick load/unload tray — Facilitates safe handling, ensures proper positioning and allows pre-loading of EPROMs, PC boards, metric cards and wafers
     
  • Digital timer — Pre-settable by user to minimize operator error and provides automatic shut-off at the end of the erasing cycle. May be set for hours, minutes or seconds
     
  • Improved internal cooling system — Provides outstanding airflow path and maximum uniform UV output — dramatically extending the life of the grid lamps
     
  • Two-piece, modular cabinet design — Rugged, anodized aluminum and stainless steel construction. Ensures better productivity, safer handling and simplifies storage and maintenance
     
  • Temperature gauge — Shows when unit has acclimatized to its surroundings and reached operating temperature
     
  • Special hood attachment — Provides improved air exhaust and added shielding from UV exposure
     
  • Manual fan speed control — Allows fan speed adjustment in upper unit to stabilize temperature according to room environment

Extra-Large Drawer Load Capacity!

 

Larger drawer dimensions maximize load capacity of individual EPROMs, wafers and PC boards. Accommodates a variety of loading formats.

  • Extra deep to permit loading of PC boards and metric cards
  • Extra wide to accept open-faced stocking tubes for mass chip erasing without unloading
  • Heavy-duty slides allow drawer to open fully for greater access to loading area
  • Accommodates PC boards, metric cards and silicon wafers ranging from 6 to 12 inches (152 – 305 mm)

Adjustable tray inserts, with or without wafer fixtures, designed to handle wafers ranging in size from 6 to 12 inches (152 – 305 mm) are available as an option (sold separately). Custom features are also available on most units by special order. Spectronics Corporation can design and manufacture a system to meet your specific production and budget requirements.

The PC-8820C-LT comes with these additional user-friendly custom features:

  • Internal security latch — Ensures that drawer stays closed and locked throughout system operation
  • Rocker switch “Start” button — Fast and easy user control of grid lamps, alarm and drawer “lock/unlock” modes
  • Control panel cover — ¼ in (6.4 mm) thick, engineered acrylic protects switch/control panel from damage and dirt
  • Cycle sounding alarm — Alerts operator when each normal erasing cycle is completed
  • Lamp fault alarm — Sounds if one or more grid lamps fails
