You will require at least the following before starting:
- An official DIYIR kit - Soldering iron & iron cleaner(sponge or similar). As most of the components are relatively small, most soldering irons will do & high powered professional soldering irons are not required. - Solder with integrated flux - Tin the tip of the soldering iro before starting. - Experience with soldering or instruction on how to solder. Do not attempt this project, until you have appropriate skils or are under sirect supervision. - A desk, table or bench on which to assemble the module. To protect the surface cover with suiteable material. - Online access to these instructions or a printout to follow. - A power socket to connect your soldering Iron (unless you are using a battery powerd iron. - If you are soldering as part of a class or course, follw the instructions of your instructor.
Soldering irons can reach very high temperatures and can burn your skin, damage property or lead to a fire if handled incorrectly. Where possible wear protective glasses and ensure your area is properly ventilated and well lighted.
We suggest to populate the PCB in the order of smaller/lower profile components first, gradually progressing to the larger/higher profile components. If you are unsure as to the best approach to soldering a particular component, please refer to the numerous turorials available on Youtube.
Step 1 Solder the 6 resistors to the PCB in the following order - R2, R3, R4, r5, R6, R7. R1 is not included in the kit and is only relevant for advanced users who want ot increase the IR power even more. This should not be required in 99%= of cases. Contact us directly before you attempt this.
