Hakko FX-888D station.

Hakko FX-888D Digital Soldering Station soldering iron and tip cleaner holder.

The Hakko FX-888D is a 65 W digital soldering station with adjustable temperature control and an integrated display. It is an updated digital version of the popular FX-888 soldering station and includes several new features, including user-selectable preset temperatures, digital calibration, a low-temperature alarm to help protect against cold solder joints, and optional password protection of the temperature setting to allow for process control. The soldering iron holder houses both a wet sponge and a brass wire sponge for cleaning the tip; since the brass is softer than the tip plating but harder than the oxidation that forms on the tip, this provides a great alternative for cleaning the tip that does not reduce the tip temperature and does not require water.
