i-CON TRACE wins iF DESIGN AWARD 2023

Renowned design award for the Ersa IoT soldering station

Ersa GmbH is one of this year´s winners of the globally renowned design award iF DESIGN AWARD. The i-CON TRACE IoT soldering station won in the “Industry/Tools” category. The iF DESIGN AWARD is announced every year by the world´s oldest independent design organization, iF International Forum Design GmbH, based in Hanover (Germany).

The Ersa i-CON TRACE is the first soldering station that can be controlled by smartphone or mobile device – making it perfect for the digital age. Specially designed for use in digitally networked environments, the i-CON TRACE with integrated WLAN, Bluetooth and network card enables 100% connectivity in digitally networked manufacturing processes and seamless traceability in manual soldering. Complicated parameter settings or cryptic menus? Not with the i-CON TRACE – thanks to the intuitive operating concept with on/off switch and three LEDs, the user can concentrate fully on the soldering process. Equally convincing: the patented Tip´n´Turn concept of the associated i-TOOL soldering iron with bayonet lock, which enables safe and fast soldering tip changes in the blink of an eye.

With seamless process documentation, the i-CON TRACE brings complete transparency to the manual soldering process. It can also be fully integrated into MES-controlled production processes. This means that the recording of an entire soldering task can already be downloaded and stored in a higher-level control system.

The i-CON TRACE convinced the 133-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its appealing design, which is continued in the intuitive operating concept. The competition was fierce, with nearly 11,000 entries from 56 countries hoping to win the seal of quality. “We are very pleased about the iF DESIGN AWARD for the i-CON TRACE – after all, the award shows that we have struck a nerve with our soldering station for the digital age, both visually and in terms of applications,” summed up Hansjürgen Bolg, Division Manager Ersa Tools, Rework & Inspection, after the award was announced.
