Introduction to Sensors

Soldering and Safety Tips


Basic Soldering Tips

  • Heat Wire with Iron
  • Let Wire Melt Solder (where possible)

How to make the perfect solder joint

  • All parts must be clean from dirt and grease
  • Try to secure the work firmly
  • "Tin" the iron tip with a small amount of solder (Do this immediately with new tips being used for the first time)
  • Clean the tip of the hot soldering iron on a damp sponge
  • Helps to add a small amount of fresh solder to the cleansed tip
  • Heat all parts of the joint with the iron for under a second or so
  • Continue heating, then apply sufficient solder only, to form an adequate joint
  • Remove and return the iron safely to its stand
  • This should only take 2-3 seconds at most to solder the average P.C.B. joint
  • Do not move parts until the solder has cooled

Troubleshooting Guide

  • Solder won't "take" - grease or dirt present - desolder and clean up the parts. Or, material may not be suitable for soldering with lead / tin solder
  • Joint is crystalline or grainy-looking - has been moved before being allowed to cool, or joint was not heated adequately - too small an iron / too large a joint
  • Solder joint forms a "spike" - probably overheated, burning away the flux

First Aid

  • In the unlucky even of burns which require treatment, follow these steps:
    • Immediately cool the affected area with cold running water, ice, or even frozen peas for ten minutes
    • Remove any rings etc. before swelling starts
    • Apply a sterile dressing to protect against infection
    • Do not apply lotions, ointments, etc, nor prick any blisters which form later
    • Seek professional medical advice where necessary
