electronic devices and cause overheating of components leading to fire.
• Make sure all welding leads are securely connected and check regularly.
• Always ensure a proper and secure electrical connection to the workpiece!
• Set up, attach or suspend all conductive power source components like casing, transport
vehicle and crane frames so they are insulated!
• Do not place any other electronic devices such as drillers or angle grinders, etc., on the
power source, transport vehicle or crane frames unless they are insulated!
• Always put welding torches and electrode holders on an insulated surface when they are
not in use!
Mains connection
Requirements for connection to the public mains network
High-performance machines can influence the mains quality by taking current from the mains
network. For some types of machines, connection restrictions or requirements relating to the
maximum possible line impedance or the necessary minimum supply capacity at the interface
with the public network (Point of Common Coupling, PCC) can therefore apply. In this respect,
attention is also drawn to the machines' technical data. In this case, it is the responsibility of
the operator, where necessary in consultation with the mains network operator, to ensure that
the machine can be connected.

Safety instructions
General
CAUTION
EMC Machine Classification
In accordance with IEC 60974-10, welding machines are grouped in two electromagnetic
compatibility classes (see technical data):
Class A machines are not intended for use in residential areas where the power supply comes
from the low-voltage public mains network. When ensuring the electromagnetic compatibility of
class A machines, difficulties can arise in these areas due to interference not only in the supply
lines but also in the form of radiated interference.
Class B machines fulfil the EMC requirements in industrial as well as residential areas,
including residential areas connected to the low-voltage public mains network.
Setting up and operating
When operating arc welding systems, in some cases, electro-magnetic interference can occur
although all of the welding machines comply with the emission limits specified in the standard.
The user is responsible for any interference caused by welding.
In order to evaluate any possible problems with electromagnetic compatibility in the
surrounding area, the user must consider the following: (see also EN 60974-10 Appendix A)
• Mains, control, signal and telecommunication lines
• Radios and televisions
• Computers and other control systems
• Safety equipment
• The health of neighbouring persons, especially if they have a pacemaker or wear a hearing
aid
• Calibration and measuring equipment
• The immunity to interference of other equipment in the surrounding area
• The time of day at which the welding work must be carried out
Recommendations for reducing interference emission
• Mains connection, e.g. additional mains filter or shielding with a metal tube
• Maintenance of the arc welding equipment
• Welding leads should be as short as possible and run closely together along the ground
• Potential equalization
• Earthing of the workpiece. In cases where it is not possible to earth the workpiece directly,
it should be connected by means of suitable capacitors.
• Shielding from other equipment in the surrounding area or the entire welding system

General
WARNING
Risk of injury from electric shock!
Contact with live parts, e.g. welding current sockets, is potentially fatal!
• Follow safety instructions on the opening pages of the operating instructions.
• Commissioning may only be carried out by persons who have the relevant expertise of
working with arc welding machines!
• Connection and welding leads (e.g. electrode holder, welding torch, workpiece lead,
interfaces) may only be connected when the machine is switched off!
CAUTION
Risk of burns on the welding current connection!
If the welding current connections are not locked, connections and leads heat up and
can cause burns, if touched!
• Check the welding current connections every day and lock by turning in clockwise direction,
if necessary.
Risk from electrical current!
If welding is carried out alternately using different methods and if a welding torch and
an electrode holder remain connected to the machine, the open-circuit/welding voltage
is applied simultaneously on all cables.
• The torch and the electrode holder should therefore always be placed on an insulated
surface before starting work and during breaks.
CAUTION
Using protective dust caps!
Protective dust caps protect the connection sockets and therefore the machine against
dirt and damage.
• The protective dust cap must be fitted if there is no accessory component being operated
on that connection.
• The cap must be replaced if faulty or if lost!
5.2
Workpiece lead, general
CAUTION
Risk of burns due to incorrect connection of the workpiece lead!
Paint, rust and dirt on the connection restrict the power flow and may lead to stray
welding currents.
Stray welding currents may cause fires and injuries!
• Clean the connections!
• Fix the workpiece lead securely!
• Do not use structural parts of the workpiece as a return lead for the welding current!
• Take care to ensure faultless power connections!

Shielding gas supply (shielding gas cylinder for welding machine)
WARNING
Incorrect handling of shielding gas cylinders!
Incorrect handling of shielding gas cylinders can result in serious and even fatal injury.
• Observe the instructions from the gas manufacturer and in any relevant regulations
concerning the use of compressed air!
• Place shielding gas cylinders in the holders provided for them and secure with fixing
devices.
• Avoid heating the shielding gas cylinder!
CAUTION
Faults in the shielding gas supply.
An unhindered shielding gas supply from the shielding gas cylinder to the welding
torch is a fundamental requirement for optimum welding results. In addition, a blocked
shielding gas supply may result in the welding torch being destroyed.
• Always re-fit the yellow protective cap when not using the shielding gas connection.
• All shielding gas connections must be gas tight.
NOTE
Before connecting the pressure regulator to the gas cylinder, open the cylinder valve
briefly to expel any dirt.

Setting the shielding gas quantity
CAUTION
Electric shocks!
When setting the shielding gas quantity, high voltage ignition pulses or open circuit
voltage are applied at the welding torch; these can lead to electric shocks and burning
on contact.
• Keep the welding torch electrically insulated from persons, animals or equipment during the
setting procedure.
•
Press the torch trigger and set the shielding gas quantity with the flow gauge of the pressure regulator.
NOTE
Rule of thumb for the gas flow rate:
Diameter of gas nozzle in mm corresponds to gas flow in l/min.
Example: 7mm gas nozzle corresponds to 7l/min gas flow.
Incorrect shielding gas setting!
If the shielding gas setting is too low or too high, this can introduce air to the weld pool
and may cause pores to form.
• Adjust the shielding gas quantity to suit the welding task!
