Following a highly-successful Americas launch earlier this year, ECD today announced that its revolutionary M.O.L.E.™ EV6 thermal profiler will be shown live in Europe for the first time during the upcoming SMTconnect 2023 event in Nuremberg, Germany. As the market’s only traveling thermal profiler with full color touchscreen control, M.O.L.E. EV6 frees personnel from the PC, as profile data can be viewed directly on the device. This time-saving solution complements ECD’s award-winning OvenSENTINEL™ reflow monitoring system, which will also be demonstrated at SMTconnect from booth #4-317. As electronics manufacturers look to improve productivity and automate process insight, OvenSENTINEL has seen a doubling of installations year-on-year. When paired, M.O.L.E. EV6 and OvenSENTINEL deliver an unparalleled solution to setting, maintaining, and verifying reflow process parameters for advanced PCB assemblies.

Mike Hayward, ECD EMEA Director of Operations, notes that all ECD’s process control tools – especially M.O.L.E. EV6 and OvenSENTINEL – embody the theme of this year’s SMTconnect event: ‘Driving manufacturing forward’. “M.O.L.E. EV6 marks the most significant development in thermal profiler technology in ten years,” he explains. “Touchscreen control is long overdue in the profiling arena, and we are proud to be the first to bring it to market. Now, users can view and interact with process calculation templates, view profiles, and see pass/fail analysis in the palm of their hand. This simplifies the profiling process, raises productivity, reduces errors, and allows on-the-fly decision-making. Likewise, OvenSENTINEL offers dynamic and customizable real-time monitoring of the reflow process, taking the burden off operators while delivering deep data-supported product traceability – all in an open communications protocol.”

The feature sets of both systems are impressive, with highlights including:

M.O.L.E. EV6:

Instrument status display with live temperature readings

USB-C communications and charging

Wireless capability via Bluetooth

Compatible with multiple thermocouple types

No PC downloads required; all data displayed on-screen, on the device

Built-in calibration reminders for maintenance simplicity

Seamlessly integrates with all RIDER verification tools: OvenRIDER, WaveRIDER, and SelectiveRIDER for a complete, multi-process, soldering machine verification system


Dynamic measurement capabilities with customizable data extractions and sensor types

Open architecture, Industry 4.0-enabling

Interface supports multiple lanes, ovens, and factories

Profile SnapShot™ one-button, on-demand profile confirmation of oven readiness and KPI alignment

TrueProfile™ trusted traceability technology

Both M.O.L.E. EV6 and OvenSENTINEL will be displayed in booth #4-317 throughout the three-day SMTconnect exhibition, May 9 – 11. To learn more, visit or email
