Yes you can. The Hakko 936 Soldering Station was originally released to the US market in late 1996 and came in a white non-ESD version, and a black ESD Safe version.
The Hakko 936 Soldering Stations that were non-ESD were model numbers 936-8, 936-9, and 936-10.
- The Hakko 936-8 was a non-ESD version (white) that came with a non-ESD small iron (900S)
- The Hakko 936-9 was a non-ESD version (white) that came with a non-ESD medium iron (907, or PN: C1147)
- The Hakko 936-10 was a non-ESD version (white) that came with a non-ESD large iron (908, or PN: C1149)
The Hakko 936 Soldering Stations that were ESD Safe were model numbers 936-11, 936-12, and 936-13.
- The Hakko 936-11 was ESD Safe (black) and came with an ESD Safe small iron (900S-ESD)
- The Hakko 936-12 was ESD Safe (black) and came with an ESD Safe medium iron (907-ESD, or PN: C1148)
- The Hakko 936-13 was ESD Safe (black) and came with an ESD Safe large iron (908-ESD, or PN: C1150)
The only physical difference between the two stations was the material they were made from. All other functions of the stations are the same, so for customers that have the older non-ESD Hakko 936 that is white, but cannot find the white soldering irons, you can use the ESD Safe irons with no problems.
NOTE: Using the ESD Safe iron with a non-ESD Safe station does not make the entire system ESD Safe.
