SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING: These Safety Precautions are for
your protection. They summarize precautionary information from the references listed in
Additional Safety Information section. Before
performing any installation or operating procedures, be
sure to read and follow the safety precautions listed below
as well as all other manuals, material safety data sheets,
labels, etc. Failure to observe Safety Precautions can result
in injury or death.
5. Do not use equipment beyond its ratings. For example,
overloaded welding cable can overheat and create a fire
hazard.
6. After completing operations, inspect the work area to
make certain there are no hot sparks or hot metal which
could cause a later fire. Use fire watchers when necessary.
7. For additional information, refer to NFPA Standard 51B,
"Fire Prevention in Use of Cutting and Welding Processes", available from the National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS -Some welding, cutting, and gouging processes are noisy and require ear protection. The arc, like the sun, emits ultraviolet (UV) and other radiation and
can injure skin and eyes. Hot metal can cause burns.
Training in the proper use of the processes and equipment is essential to prevent accidents. Therefore:
ELECTRICAL SHOCK -- Contact with live electrical parts and ground can cause severe
injury or death. DO NOT use AC welding current in damp areas, if movement is confined,
or if there is danger of falling.
1. Be sure the power source frame (chassis) is connected
to the ground system of the input power.
2. Connect the workpiece to a good electrical ground.
3. Connect the work cable to the workpiece. A poor or
missing connection can expose you or others to a fatal
shock.
4. Use well-maintained equipment. Replace worn or damaged cables.
5. Keep everything dry, including clothing, work area,
cables, torch/electrode holder, and power source.
6. Make sure that all parts of your body are insulated from
work and from ground.
7. Do not stand directly on metal or the earth while working
in tight quarters or a damp area; stand on dry boards or
an insulating platform and wear rubber-soled shoes.
8. Put on dry, hole-free gloves before turning on the power.
9. Turn off the power before removing your gloves.
10. Refer to ANSI/ASC Standard Z49.1 (listed on next page)
for specific grounding recommendations. Do not mistake the work lead for a ground cable.
1. Always wear safety glasses with side shields in any work
area, even if welding helmets, face shields, and goggles
are also required.
2. Use a face shield fitted with the correct filter and cover
plates to protect your eyes, face, neck, and ears from
sparks and rays of the arc when operating or observing
operations. Warn bystanders not to watch the arc and not
to expose themselves to the rays of the electric-arc or hot
metal.
3. Wear flameproof gauntlet type gloves, heavy long-sleeve
shirt, cuffless trousers, high-topped shoes, and a welding helmet or cap for hair protection, to protect against
arc rays and hot sparks or hot metal. A flameproof apron
may also be desirable as protection against radiated
heat and sparks.
4. Hot sparks or metal can lodge in rolled up sleeves,
trouser cuffs, or pockets. Sleeves and collars should be
kept buttoned, and open pockets eliminated from the
front of clothing
5. Protect other personnel from arc rays and hot sparks with
a suitable nonflammable partition or curtains.
6. Use goggles over safety glasses when chipping slag or
grinding. Chipped slag may be hot and can fly far.
Bystanders should also wear goggles over safety glasses.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS — May be
dangerous. Electric current flowing through
any conductor causes localized Electric and
Magnetic Fields (EMF). Welding and cutting
current creates EMF around welding cables
and welding machines. Therefore:
FIRES AND EXPLOSIONS -- Heat from
flames and arcs can start fires. Hot slag
or sparks can also cause fires and explosions. Therefore:
1. Welders having pacemakers should consult their physician before welding. EMF may interfere with some pacemakers.
2. Exposure to EMF may have other health effects which are
unknown.
3. Welders should use the following procedures to minimize
exposure to EMF:
A. Route the electrode and work cables together. Secure
them with tape when possible.
B. Never coil the torch or work cable around your body.
C. Do not place your body between the torch and work
cables. Route cables on the same side of your body.
D. Connect the work cable to the workpiece as close as
possible to the area being welded.
E. Keep welding power source and cables as far away
from your body as possible.
1. Remove all combustible materials well away from the
work area or cover the materials with a protective nonflammable covering. Combustible materials include
wood, cloth, sawdust, liquid and gas fuels, solvents,
paints and coatings, paper, etc.
2. Hot sparks or hot metal can fall through cracks or
crevices in floors or wall openings and cause a hidden
smoldering fire or fires on the floor below. Make certain
that such openings are protected from hot sparks and
metal.“
3. Do not weld, cut or perform other hot work until the
workpiece has been completely cleaned so that there
are no substances on the workpiece which might produce flammable or toxic vapors. Do not do hot work on
closed containers. They may explode.
4. Have fire extinguishing equipment handy for instant use,
such as a garden hose, water pail, sand bucket, or
portable fire extinguisher. Be sure you are trained in its
use.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
FUMES AND GASES -- Fumes and
gases, can cause discomfort or harm,
particularly in confined spaces. Do
not breathe fumes and gases. Shielding gases can cause asphyxiation.
Therefore:
EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE -- Faulty or improperly maintained equipment can cause
injury or death. Therefore:
1. Always have qualified personnel perform the installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance work. Do not
perform any electrical work unless you are qualified to
perform such work.
2. Before performing any maintenance work inside a power
source, disconnect the power source from the incoming
electrical power.
3. Maintain cables, grounding wire, connections, power
cord, and power supply in safe working order. Do not
operate any equipment in faulty condition.
4. Do not abuse any equipment or accessories. Keep
equipment away from heat sources such as furnaces,
wet conditions such as water puddles, oil or grease,
corrosive atmospheres and inclement weather.
5. Keep all safety devices and cabinet covers in position
and in good repair.
6. Use equipment only for its intended purpose. Do not
modify it in any manner.
1. Always provide adequate ventilation in the work area by
natural or mechanical means. Do not weld, cut, or gouge
on materials such as galvanized steel, stainless steel,
copper, zinc, lead, beryllium, or cadmium unless positive mechanical ventilation is provided. Do not breathe
fumes from these materials.
2. Do not operate near degreasing and spraying operations. The heat or arc rays can react with chlorinated
hydrocarbon vapors to form phosgene, a highly toxic
gas, and other irritant gases.
3. If you develop momentary eye, nose, or throat irritation
while operating, this is an indication that ventilation is
not adequate. Stop work and take necessary steps to
improve ventilation in the work area. Do not continue to
operate if physical discomfort persists.
4. Refer to ANSI/ASC Standard Z49.1 (see listing below)
for specific ventilation recommendations.
5. WARNING: This product, when used for welding or

PROTEJASE USTED Y A LOS DEMAS-Algunos procesos de soldadura, corte y
ranurado son ruidosos y requiren
protección para los oídos. El arco, como
el sol , emite rayos ultravioleta (UV) y otras radiaciones
que pueden dañar la piel y los ojos. El metal caliente causa
quemaduras. EL entrenamiento en el uso propio de los
equipos y sus procesos es esencial para prevenir
accidentes. Por lo tanto:
CHOQUE ELECTRICO -- El contacto con las
partes eléctricas energizadas y tierra
puede causar daño severo o muerte. NO
use soldadura de corriente alterna (AC) en
áreas húmedas, de movimiento confinado
en lugares estrechos o si hay
posibilidad de caer al suelo.
1. Asegúrese de que el chasis de la fuente de poder esté conectado
a tierra através del sistema de electricidad primario.
2. Conecte la pieza de trabajo a un buen sistema de tierra física.
3. Conecte el cable de retorno a la pieza de trabajo. Cables y
conductores expuestos o con malas conexiones pueden exponer

esté en el área de trabajo, aún cuando esté usando careta de
soldar, protector para su cara u otro tipo de protección.
Use una careta que tenga el filtro correcto y lente para proteger
sus ojos, cara, cuello, y oídos de las chispas y rayos del arco
cuando se esté operando y observando las operaciones. Alerte
a todas las personas cercanas de no mirar el arco y no
exponerse a los rayos del arco eléctrico o el metal fundido.
Use guantes de cuero a prueba de fuego, camisa pesada de
mangas largas, pantalón de ruedo liso, zapato alto al tobillo, y
careta de soldar con capucha para el pelo, para proteger el
cuerpo de los rayos y chispas calientes provenientes del metal
fundido. En ocaciones un delantal a prueba de fuego es
necesario para protegerse del calor radiado y las chispas.
Chispas y partículas de metal caliente puede alojarse en las
mangas enrolladas de la camisa , el ruedo del pantalón o los
bolsillos. Mangas y cuellos deberán mantenerse abotonados,
bolsillos al frente de la camisa deberán ser cerrados o eliminados.
Proteja a otras personas de los rayos del arco y chispas
calientes con una cortina adecuada no-flamable como división.
Use careta protectora además de sus gafas de seguridad
cuando esté removiendo escoria o puliendo. La escoria puede
estar caliente y desprenderse con velocidad. Personas cercanas
deberán usar gafas de seguridad y careta protectora.
CAMPOS ELECTRICOS Y MAGNETICOS Son peligrosos. La corriente eléctrica fluye
através de cualquier conductor causando
a nivel local Campos Eléctricos y
Magnéticos (EMF). Las corrientes en el
área de corte y soldadura, crean EMF
alrrededor de los cables de soldar y las
maquinas. Por lo tanto:
FUEGO Y EXPLOSIONES -- El calor de las
flamas y el arco
pueden ocacionar
fuegos. Escoria caliente y las chispas
pueden causar fuegos y explosiones.
Por lo tanto:
1. Soldadores u Operadores que use marca-pasos para el corazón
deberán consultar a su médico antes de soldar. El Campo
Electromagnético (EMF) puede interferir con algunos marca-pasos.
2. Exponerse a campos electromagnéticos (EMF) puede causar otros
efectos de salud aún desconocidos.
3. Los soldadores deberán usar los siguientes procedimientos para
minimizar exponerse al EMF:
A. Mantenga el electrodo y el cable a la pieza de trabajo juntos, hasta
llegar a la pieza que usted quiere soldar. Asegúrelos uno junto al
otro con cinta adhesiva cuando sea posible.
B. Nunca envuelva los cables de soldar alrededor de su cuerpo.
C. Nunca ubique su cuerpo entre la antorcha y el cable, a la pieza
de trabajo. Mantega los cables a un sólo lado de su cuerpo.
D. Conecte el cable de trabajo a la pieza de trabajo lo más cercano
posible al área de la soldadura.
E. Mantenga la fuente de poder y los cables de soldar lo más lejos
posible de su cuerpo.
1. Remueva todo material combustible lejos del área de trabajo o
cubra los materiales con una cobija a prueba de fuego. Materiales
combustibles incluyen madera, ropa, líquidos y gases flamables,
solventes, pinturas, papel, etc.
2. Chispas y partículas de metal pueden introducirse en las grietas
y agujeros de pisos y paredes causando fuegos escondidos en
otros niveles o espacios. Asegúrese de que toda grieta y agujero
esté cubierto para proteger lugares adyacentes contra fuegos.
3. No corte, suelde o haga cualquier otro trabajo relacionado hasta
que la pieza de trabajo esté totalmente limpia y libre de substancias
que puedan producir gases inflamables o vapores tóxicos. No
trabaje dentro o fuera de contenedores o tanques cerrados.
Estos pueden explotar si contienen vapores inflamables.
4. Tenga siempre a la mano equipo extintor de fuego para uso
instantáneo, como por ejemplo una manguera con agua, cubeta

PRÉCAUTIONS DE SÉCURITÉ
coupes à l’arc, à moins de les recouvrir complètement
d’une bâche non-inflammable. Ce type de matériaux
comprend notamment le bois, les vêtements, la sciure,
l’essence, le kérosène, les peintures, les solvants, le
gaz naturel, l’acétylène, le propane et autres substances combustibles semblables.
b. Les étincelles ou les projections de métal incandescent
peuvent tomber dans des fissures du plancher ou dans
des ouvertures des murs et y déclencher une ignition
lente cachée. Veiller à protéger ces ouvertures des
étincelles et des projections de métal.
c. N’exécutez pas de soudures, de coupes, d’opérations
de gougeage ou autres travaux à chaud à la surface de
barils, bidons, réservoirs ou autres contenants usagés,
avant de les avoir nettoyés de toute trace de substance
susceptible de produire des vapeurs inflammables ou
toxiques.
d. En vue d’assurer la prévention des incendies, il convient
de disposer d’un matériel d’extinction prêt à servir
immédiatement, tel qu’un tuyau d’arrosage, un seau à
eau, un seau de sable ou un extincteur portatif.
e. Une fois le travail à l’arc terminé, inspectez le secteur
de façon à vous assurer qu’aucune étincelle ou
projection de métal incandescent ne risque de
provoquer ultérieurement un feu.
3. CHOC ÉLECTRIQUE-- Le gougeage à l’arc et à l’arc au
plasma exige l’emploi de tensions à vide relativement
importantes; or, celles-ci risquent de causer des
dommages corporels graves et même mortels en cas
d’utilisation inadéquate. La gravité du choc électrique
reçu dépend du chemin suivi par le courant à travers le
corps humain et de son intensité.
a. Ne laissez jamais de surfaces métalliques sous tension
venir au contact direct de la peau ou de vêtements
humides. Veillez à porter des gants bien secs.
b. Si vous devez effectuer un travail sur une surface
métallique ou dans un secteur humide, veillez à assurer votre isolation corporelle en portant des gants secs
et des chaussures à semelles de caoutchouc et en
vous tenant sur une planche ou une plate-forme sèche.
c. Mettez toujours à la terre le poste de soudage/coupage
en le reliant par un câble à une bonne prise de terre.
d. N’utilisez jamais de câbles usés ou endommagés. Ne
surchargez jamais le câble. Utilisez toujours un
équipement correctement entretenu.
e. Mettez l’équipement hors tension lorsqu’il n’est pas en
service. une mise à la masse accidentelle peut en effet
provoquer une surchauffe de l’équipement et un danger
d’incendie. Ne pas enrouler ou passer le câble autour
d’une partie quelconque du corps.
f. Vérifiez si le câble de masse est bien relié à la pièce en
un point aussi proche que possible de la zone de travail.
Le branchement des câbles de masse à l’ossature du
bâtiment ou en un point éloigné de la zone de travail
augmente en effet le risque de passage d’un courant de

qu’elles ne s’exposent pas à son rayonnement, ni à
celui du métal incandescent.
b. Portez des gants ignifugés à crispins, une tunique
épaisse à manches longues, des pantalons sans
rebord, des chaussures à embout d’acier et un casque
de soudage ou une calotte de protection, afin d’éviter
d’exposer la peau au rayonnement de l’arc électrique
ou du métal incandescent. ll est également
souhaitable d’utiliser un tablier ininflammable de façon
à se protéger des étincelles et du rayonnement
thermique.
c. Les étincelles ou les projections de métal incandescent
risquent de se loger dans des manches retroussées,
des bords relevés de pantalons ou dans des poches.
Aussi convient-il de garder boutonnés le col et les
manches et de porter des vêtements sans poches à
l’avant.
d. Protégez des étincelles et du rayonnement de l’arc
électrique les autres personnes travaillant à proximité
à l’aide d’un écran ininflammable adéquat.
e. Ne jamais omettre de porter des lunettes de sécurité

l’arc. Utilisez des lunettes de sécurité à écrans ou
verres latéraux pour piquer ou meûler le laitier. Les
piquetures incandescentes de laitier peuvent être
projetées à des distances considérables. Les
personnes se trouvant à proximité doivent également
porter des lunettes de protection.
f. Le gougeage à l’arc et le soudage à l’arc au plasma
produisent un niveau de bruit extrêmement élevé (de
100 à 114 dB) et exigent par conséquent l’emploi de
dispositifs appropriés de protection auditive.
2. PRÉVENTION DES INCENDES-- Les projections de
laitier incandescent ou d’étincelles peuvent provoquer
de graves incendies au contact de matériaux combustibles solides, liquides ou gazeux. Aussi faut-il observer les précautions suivantes:
a. Éloigner suffisamment tous les matériaux combustibles
du secteur où l’on exécute des soudures ou des
9

SECTION 1
PRÉCAUTIONS DE SÉCURITÉ
levage, des câbles de grue ou divers chemins
électriques.
g. Empêchez l’apparition de toute humidité, notamment
sur vos vêtements, à la surface de l’emplacement de
travail, des câbles, du porte-électrode et du poste de
soudage/coupage. Réparez immédiatement toute
fuite d’eau.
4. VENTILATION-- La respiration prolongée des fumées
résultant des opérations de soudage/coupage, à
l’intérieur, d’un local clos, peut provoquer des malaises et des dommages corporels. Aussi convient-il
d’observer les précautions suivantes:
a. Assurez en permanence une aération adéquate de
l’emplacement de travail en maintenant une ventilation naturelle ou à l’aide de moyens mécaniques.
N’effectuez jamais de travaux de soudage ou de
coupage sur des matériaux de zinc, de plomb, de
beryllium ou de cadmium en l’absence de moyens
mécaniques de ventilation capables d’empêcher
l’inhalation des fumées dégagées par ces matériaux.
b. N’effectuez jamais de travaux de soudage ou de
coupage à proximité de vapeurs d’hydrocarbure
chloré
résultant
d’opérations
voisines
de
dégraissage ou de pulvérisation. La chaleur dégagée
ou le rayonnement de l’arc peut déclencher la
formation de phosgène -- gaz particulièrement
toxique -- et d’autres gaz irritants, à partir des
vapeurs de solvant.
c. Une irritation momentanée des yeux, du nez ou de la
gorge constatée au cours de l’utilisation de
l’équipement dénote un défaut de ventilation.
Arrêtez-vous de travailler afin de prendre les
mesures nécessaires à l’amélioration de la
ventilation. Ne poursuivez pas l’opération entreprise
si le malaise persiste.
d. Certaines commandes comportent des canalisations
où circule de l’hydrogène. L’armoire de commande
est munie d’un ventilateur destiné à empêcher la
formation de poches d’hydrogène, lesquelles
présentent un danger d’explosion; ce ventilateur ne
fonctionne que si l’interrupteur correspondant du
panneau avant se trouve placé en position ON
(Marche). Veillez à manœuvrer cette commande en
vérifiant si le couvercle est bien en place, de façon à
assurer l’efficacité de la ventilation ainsi réalisée. Ne
jamais débrancher le ventilateur.
e. Les fumées produites par l’opération de soudage ou
de coupage peuvent s’avérer toxiques. Aussi est-il
nécessaire de disposer en permanence d’un
dispositif adéquat de ventilation de type aspirant,
afin d’élimi-ner du voisinage de l’opérateur tout
dégagement de fumée visible.
f. Consultez les recommandations particulières en
matière de ventilation indiquées à l’alinéa 6 de la
norme Z49.1 de l’AWS.
5. ENTRETIEN DE L’ÉQUIPEMENT-- Un équipement
entretenu de façon défectueuse ou inadéquate risque
non seulement de réaliser un travail de mauvaise
qualité mais, chose plus grave encore, d’entraîner
des dommages corporels graves, voire mortels en
déclenchant des incendies ou des chocs électriques.
Observez par conséquent les précautions suivantes:
a. Efforcez-vous de toujours confier à un personnel qualifié l’installation, le dépannage et l’entretien du poste
de soudage et de coupage. N’effectuez aucune
réparation électrique sur l’équipement à moins d’être
qua-lifié à cet effet.
b. Ne procédez jamais à une tâche d’entretien
quelconque à l’intérieur du poste de soudage/
coupage, avant d’avoir débranché l’alimentation
électrique.
c. Maintenez en bon état de fonctionnement les câbles,
le câble de masse, les branchements, le cordon
d’alimentation et le poste de soudage/coupage.
N’utilisez jamais le poste ou l’équipement s’il
présente une défectuosité quelconque.
d. Prenez soin du poste de soudage et de coupage et
des équipements accessoires. Gardez-les à l’écart
des sources de charleur, notamment des fours, de
l’humidité, des flaques d’eau maintenez-les à l’abri
des traces d’huile ou de graisse, des atmosphères
corrosives et des intempéries.
e. Laissez en place tous les dispositifs de sécurité et
tous les panneaux de l’armoire de commande en
veillant à les garder en bon état.
f. Utilisez le poste de soudage/coupage conformément
à son usage prévu et n’effectuez aucune modification.

SECTION 2
DESCRIPTION
The MultiPower 460 is a multi-process power source designed for Mig short
circuiting, spray transfer (GMAW), flux core (FCAW), Tig (GTAW), and stick
(SMAW) welding and air carbon arc cutting/gouging (CAC-A) applications.
Table 2-1 outlines the electrical and physical specifications.
A. POWER SOURCE
The power source is a constant current (CC) and constant voltage (CV), three
phase, secondary chopper dc design with solid state contactor and control
circuitry. It provides the volt-ampere characteristics desired for conventional
MIG and flux core arc welding in the CV (constant voltage) mode or stick
welding, Tig (GTAW) and arc gouging in the CC (constant current) mode.
Features
• Auto Fan - The MultiPower 460 fan will run when the power source is first
powered up and will continue running for 6 minutes, then shut down. The
fan will start again when welding begins and at current levels above 50
amps. The fan will remain running for 6 minutes after welding stops and
then shut down automatically.
• Stainless steel frame for environmental durability.
• Durable composite side and top panels will not corrode.
• 100% duty cycle output at 450 amps.
• Compatible with all ESAB 42 vac wire feeders.
B. VOLT - AMPERE CHARACTERISTICS
The curves shown in Figure 2-2 represent the static volt-ampere characteristics
for the power source. The slant of these curves is referred to as the "slope" and
is generally defined as the voltage drop per 100 amperes of current use. These
curves show the output voltage available at any given output current from the
minimum to the maximum setting of the voltage/current control.

Inductance
SECTION 2
DESCRIPTION
7. INDUCTANCE TRIM
This control is deactivated in the TIG and STICK modes.
Inductance is used to optimize short circuiting arc performance by changing
the current rise and fall time of each short circuit. This results in improved
spatter control, weld bead wetting and arc stability. The short circuiting Mig
arc performance will change from a high short circuit frequency, fast reacting
arc, to a lower short circuit frequency, soft and less spattering arc as the dial
is turned clockwise. The optimized arc performance will vary depending on
shielding gas, wire type and wire diameter. The operator can adjust this
control to optimize welding characteristics.

feeder control panel. To see the preset wire feed speed, press the PRESET
button on the MultiPower 460 control panel. Use Table 4-1 to determine the
switch position of operator preference. In most Mig welding applications, the
switch will be in the REMOTE position and the wire feed speed and voltage will
be adjusted from the wire feed front panel.
B. DIGITAL DISPLAY METERS
The digital displays located on the left side of the control panel are multifunctional depending on the welding process being used. The MultiPower 460
digital display meters permit preset of the wire feed speed on wire feeders
without digital displays. A Mig 2E, 4HD or DuraDrive 4-30 or 4-48 will not need
digital meters to preset the wire feed speed. The wire feed speed can be
displayed on the MultiPower 460 panel meter.
C. MIG WELDING
In the MIG process mode, the digital displays will read preset wire feed speed
in inches per minute and preset arc volts when the PRESET button is pressed.
Once welding begins, the displays will show average welding current and
volts in the top and bottom display, respectively. The displays have a “HOLD”
circuit that retains the welding conditions. After welding stops, the display will
continue to show the last average welding current and voltage sampled for 10
seconds, then returns to “0”.
D. TIG and STICK WELDING
In the TIG and STICK process mode, you must depress and "HOLD" the
PRESET button while presetting the welding current in the top display.
Releasing the preset button causes the display to return to zero. Once welding
begins, the display will show average welding current and volts in the top and
bottom display, respectively. After welding stops, the current display will again
25
SECTION 4
OPERATION
return to zero. There is no “HOLD” circuit for the display meters when using the
TIG and STICK process modes.
E. MIG WELDING PRESET PROCEDURE
When the PROCESS switch is placed in the MIG position, the MultiPower 460
is set for CV (constant voltage) welding. The power source will output open
circuit voltage (OCV) when the Mig Gun trigger is depressed. The following
procedure assumes the wire feed and voltage adjustments will be made from
the wire feeder front panel and wire and gas have been installed.
Step 1. Connect wire feeder to MultiPower 460 and set PANEL/REMOTE
switch to REMOTE position.
Step 2. Place the WELD PROCESS switch in the MIG (center) position.
Step 3. Press and release the PRESET button then turn the wire speed
control on the wire feeder to the desired speed shown on the top
digital display window of the MultiPower 460.
Step 4. Turn the VOLTAGE knob on the wire feeder to the desired arc
voltage in the bottom digital display window of the
MultiPower 460.
NOTE
"OFF THE ARC" Wire Feeders can use
either MIG (CV) or STICK (CC) Process
Selection. Place the contactor toggle
switch on the accesssory panel (see
Figure 2-5) to the "ON" position.
Step 5. Set the shielding gas flow rate to 35 cfh by activating the gas purge
switch on the wire feeder or pulling the gun trigger and turning the
adjustment knob on the Flowmeter.
Step 1
Step 3
Step 2
Figure 4-1 Standard Mig Setup Procedure
Step 6. Connect the work cable to the part to be welded and pull the gun
trigger to start welding. Trim the wire speed and volts as needed for
the desired arc characteristics and weld quality.
26
OPERATION
SECTION 4
NOTE
The FC-5B foot control or TC-2B hand
control must be used with the MP-460 for
remote current Tig current control.
F. TIG WELDING
When the PROCESS switch is placed in the TIG position, the MultiPower 460
is automatically set for CC (constant current) welding using the ESAB Touch
TIG starting method. The voltage and current at the output lugs is maintained
at low values until the tungsten electrode is shorted to the workpiece.
Step 1. Be sure to set the polarity to DCEN (Electrode Negative) by connecting the Tig torch to the negative terminal lug on the front of the
power source.
Step 2. Place the WELD PROCESS switch in the TIG position.
Step 3. Place the PANEL/REMOTE switch in the PANEL position.
NOTE
When using a DuraDrive wire feeder
(or any wire feeder with Remote
Voltage control from the feeder front
panel) connected simultaneously with
a remote current control Tig device
(FC-5B or TC-2B), proportional control
of the TIG remote current will be
controlled by the position of the feeder
voltage control knob when the PANEL/
REMOTE switch is in the REMOTE
position. When in the PANEL position
the maximum current of the remote
device is controlled by the MP-460
front panel current control preset.
Step 4. While depressing the PRESET button, turn the VOLTAGE/CURRENT
knob to the desired weld current as displayed on the top digital display window.
Step 5. Set the shielding gas flow rate to 20 cfh by adjusting the control knob
on the flowmeter.
Step 6. Touch the tungsten electrode to the workpiece momentarily then lift
1/16" off the workpiece to establish the welding arc. Trim the weld
current as desired by turning the VOLTAGE/CURRENT knob.
Step 3
Step 2
NOTE
If a Foot Control or Remote Hand Control
is used for continuous current control,
place the PANEL/REMOTE switch in the
PANEL POSITION and set the Panel Current knob to the maximum desired weld
current. The remote device will then control the current between minimum and the
maximum setting preset (proportional
current control). Maximum Tig weld current is 525 amps.
NOTE
If the MP-460 PANEL/REMOTE switch
is left in the REMOTE position when Tig
welding while using a remote current
control device, the current range will
be full scale or 10 to 400 Amps.
Limiting the the maximum weld current
(proportional current control) using the
currnet control on the MP-460 front
panel is defeated.
Step 4
Figure 4-2 Standard Tig Setup Procedure
G. STICK WELDING
When the PROCESS switch is placed in the STICK position, the MultiPower
460 establishes open circuit voltage (OCV) and output power is immediately
available for welding. This means that the STICK electrode holder is “HOT”, and
an arc will strike when the electrode comes in contact with the workpiece or
any other object at ground potential.
27
SECTION 4
OPERATION
Arc Force is automatically enabled when the WELD PROCESS switch is set
to the STICK position. The level of Arc Force is automatically adjusted by the
current preset being used.
When the WELD PROCESS switch is
moved to the TIG or STICK position,
electrode becomes electrically
“HOT”. Do not allow the electrode to
contact ground potential until you are
ready to make a weld.
Step 1. Be sure to set the polarity to DCEP (Electrode Positive) by placing
the Electrode Holder cable in the Positive connection lug on the front
of the power source.
Step 2. Place the WELD PROCESS switch in the STICK position.
Step 3. Place the PANEL/REMOTE switch in the PANEL position.
Step 4. While holding the PRESET button, turn the VOLTAGE/CURRENT
knob to the desired weld current in the top digital display window.
Step 5. Strike the electrode on the workpiece and start welding. Trim the
welding current as needed for the desired weld pool control.
Step 3
Step 2

H. AIR CARBON ARC GOUGING (CAC-A)
1. CONSTANT CURRENT and CONSTANT VOLTAGE GOUGING
Step 1. Place the Output PANEL/REMOTE switch into PANEL position if
output current is regulated from the VOLTAGE/CURRENT knob on the
power source front panel, or in REMOTE position if output current is
regulated from the optional Hand Control.
Step 2. Place the Process Control switch in the STICK position.
Step 3. Press and hold the PRESET button and set the VOLTAGE/CURRENT
knob to gouging current.
28
SECTION 4
When the WELD PROCESS switch is
moved to the TIG or STICK position,
electrode becomes electrically “HOT”.
Do not allow the electrode to contact
ground potential until you are ready
to make a weld.
OPERATION
Step 4. CV-Carbon Arc Gouging Only - Place the Process Switch in the
MIG position and the Contactor Toggle switch to the "ON" position.
See Figures 4-4 and 4-5.
Step 5. Turn the air on the gouging electrode holder "ON and start gouging by
touching or scratch starting the electrode.
Step 2

MAINTENANCE
5.0 MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING
A. CLEANING
Periodically, remove the cover from the power source and blow accumulated
dust and dirt from the air passages and interior components by using clean low
pressure air. The frequency of cleaning required depends upon the environment
in which the power source is used.
It is imperative that all air passages be kept as clean as possible in order to allow
adequate air flow to provide proper cooling.
After cleaning with low pressure air, check for and tighten any loose hardware,
including all electrical connections. Check for frayed and/or cracked insulation
on all power cables and replace if necessary.
B. INSPECTION AND SERVICE
Keep the power source dry, free of oil and grease, and protected at all times from
damage by hot metal and sparks.
C. FAN MOTOR
Keep the fan motor free of accumulated dust and lint.
D. TRANSFORMER
Other than periodically cleaning the dust and dirt from the transformer, no
maintenance is required. Ensure that only clean, dry, low pressure air is used.
E.
WIRE FEEDER CONTROL CIRCUITS
These circuits are protected by two 10 amp circuit breakers mounted in the front
panel. If these open, the contactor and wire feeder will not operate.
F.
OVER TEMPERATURE PROTECTION
If the power source reaches an abnormally high internal temperature, the
thermal protection will deenergize the contactor circuit, shutting down the power
source but leaving the cooling fan on. After the power source has cooled to a
safe level, the thermal protection will automatically reset. While de-energized,
the contactor and wire feeder cannot be operated.
G. TROUBLESHOOTING
If the power source is operating improperly, the following troubleshooting
information may be used to locate the source of the trouble.
Check the problem against the symptoms in the following troubleshooting guide
(Table 5-1.) The remedy for the problem may be quite simple. If the cause
cannot be quickly located, open up the unit and perform a simple visual
inspection of all the components and wiring. Check for proper terminal
connections, loose or burned wiring or components, blown fuses, bulged or
leaking capacitors, or any other sign of damage or discoloration.
