Metcal CV-IOT Gateway
Raising the Bar on Process Control and Traceability

With the power of Connection Validation Systems and the new Metcal CV-IOT Gateway, manufacturers can leverage more soldering data than ever before

CV-IOT connects every station on your network

Track every joint being soldered. Not just locally, but from every site on your network.

Capture data at each soldering station on each joint – soldering temperature and power profiles, dwell time, good and bad solder joint evaluation, and more.

Analyze data through the intuitive dashboard and easy-to-configure software – easily view productivity and system status at-a-glance. Refine data views through filters and user configurations.

View data graphically or as a database – easily export data to a CSV file for your own analysis.

Add barcode information to your data set with a barcode scanner (not included)

CV: Process Control

The Ultimate in Process Control

  • Identify which tips are being used at each station
  • Track the soldering process through automatic evaluation of each joint, to ensure processes are being followed
  • Understand productivity dips and spikes
  • Set up email alerts for cartridge changes and ESD events
CV-IOT: Advanced Traceability

Advanced Traceability

  • Review soldering statistics in the event of a board failure
  • Find the root cause of faulty joints faster by analyzing data never before available
  • Analyze valuable metrics on the processes at the bench. Drill down to the board level

The Advantages of CV-IOT

Information on the entire shop floor – At a glance, see how many stations are up and running, and how many are experiencing ESD events

Productivity Station-to-Station – Compare station productivity to easily manage throughput and see when operators may need extra training.

Tip Life – Manage costs and productivity by comparing expected and actual tip life at each system.

CV-IOT Dashboard
The main CV-IOT Dashboard displays (top left) solder events over time, (top right) tip life, (bottom left) production floor status updates, and (bottom right) productivity from station-to-station.
Raw Data
Analyze raw information as a database on screen, or export to a CSV file for further analysis, reporting, and record keeping.
Soldering Station Information

The soldering station information screen allows the floor manager to see detailed information on the setup and productivity of each station.

Event Graphs

Leverage graphs with multiple filters to customize dashboard displays, making it easy to have the information you need at your fingertips.

Graphs Over Time
Graph multiple solder events over time to easily visualize productivity and throughput
