BTU Will Demonstrate Enhanced ENERGY PILOT Software at SMTAI

NORTH BILLERICA, Mass., August 24, 2015— BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing and alternative energy markets, will exhibit in booth #734 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Sept. 29 -30, 2015, at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. Company representatives will demonstrate the newly enhanced ENERGY PILOT software, designed to reduce and monitor the reflow oven operating costs.

“In addition to taking advantage of idle time to reduce oven operating costs, the latest release of BTU’s Energy Pilot Software allows users of BTU reflow ovens to monitor their on-going costs down to the per unit level,” said Paul Lancaster, director of sales Americas for BTU.   “The ENERGY PILOT is a powerful tool in the effort to continuously improve our Cost of Ownership performance,” added Lancaster.

ENERGY PILOT is a feature in the latest release of BTU’s windows-based WINCON™ operating system.  The ENERGY PILOT software saves manufacturers money whenever the oven is idle.  Standby mode can save more than 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.  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.
