  Large Digital Readout: A slide switch below the digital display allows the operator to toggle between a Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature readout. Another slide switch allows the operator to toggle between the readout temperature and the actual tip temperature.
  DELAYED SUCTION: Pump will continue sucking for 1-2 seconds after actuator is released, clears the tubes and prevents clogging of the tip.
  ANALOG VACUUM GAUGE. Helps to diagnose suction problems with the desoldering unit.
