4 INSTALLATION
4.4
Mains supply
NOTE!
Mains supply requirements
High power equipment may, due to the primary current drawn from the mains
supply, influence the power quality of the grid. Therefore connection restrictions
or requirements regarding the maximum permissible mains impedance or the
required minimum supply capacity at the interface point to the public grid may
apply for some types of equipment (see technical data). In this case it is the
responsibility of the installer or user of the equipment to ensure, by consultation
with the distribution network operator if necessary, that the equipment may be
connected.
CAUTION!
Make sure that the ON/OFF switch is set to OFF (0) before making any electrical
connections between the power source and the mains power supply.
Make sure that the welding power source is connected to the correct supply voltage and that
it is protected by the correct fuse rating. The mains distribution panel must comply with the
regulations in force in the country of use. The mains supply system must be of the industrial
type.
A protective earth connection must be made in accordance with regulations. The power
source must be correctly connected to earth to protect the operator. It is indispensable to
provide good earthing by means of the yellow-green lead in the power cable, to prevent
discharges due to accidental contacts with earthed objects. The chassis, which is conductive,
is electrically connected with the earth lead. If the equipment is not correct connected with
the earth lead it may cause electric shocks which are dangerous for the operator.
The power source works at mains voltages differing by 20% from the rated mains (400 V
rated, minimum voltage 320 V, maximum voltage 480 V).

Make sure that the Heliarc is correctly connected to earth to protect the operator. It is
indispensable to provide good earthing by means of the yellow-green lead in the power
cable, to prevent discharges due to accidental contacts with earthed objects.
The chassis, which is conductive, is electrically connected with the earth lead. If the
equipment is not correct connected with the earth lead it may cause electric shocks which
are dangerous for the operator.
The cooling unit must be connected to the power source with the special ILME multipole plug
supplied. Make sure that the power source is turned off and disconnected from the mains
power supply before making any electrical connections between the cooling unit and the
power source.
If the cooling unit is going to be connected to three phase mains voltage, replace the special
ILME 4-way plug with a three phase plug. Connect the supply wires to only two of the
contacts (black-brown) of the plug and the earth led (yellow/green) to the earth contact.

Filler material
Many kinds of material can be treated, however there are som basic rules:
1. The rods of weld material must have the same mechanical and chemical properties as
the material to be welded.
2. It is recommended not to use parts of the base material, as they could contain impurities
due to the work process.
3. If the material used has a different chemical composition, it is advisable to assess the
final characteristics of the joint, both mechanical and anti-corrosive.
Gas
The protection gas normally used is pure argon with a quantity that varies according to the
current used (4-6 l/min).
TIG welding on copper
Due to the properties already described, TIG welding is also excellent for working on
materials with high heat conductivity. The gas used is always argon and, in the case of
copper, the use of a backing support is recommended. Preparation of the edges for welding
copper (flat butt joint).
The electrode used is of the same type described for welding steel, it is prepared as
described above. To prevent possible oxidation in the welded area, weld materials containing
phosphor, silicon and deoxidizing components are used.

MAINTENANCE
6.1
Overview
Regular maintenance is important for safe, reliable operation.
Only personnel with the appropriate electrical skills (authorized staff) may remove safety
plates.
CAUTION!
All warranty undertakings from the supplier cease to apply if the customer
attempts any work to rectify any faults in the product during the warranty period.
6.2
Power source
Check regularly that the welding power source is not clogged with dirt. Clogged or blocked
air inlets and outlets can result in overheating.
How often and which cleaning methods apply depend on:
•
•
•
•
the welding process
the arc times
the environment
the surrounding environment
It is normally sufficient to blow down the power source with dry compressed air (reduced
pressure) once a year.
6.3
Welding torch
A regular programme of care and maintenance reduces unnecessary and expensive
downtime.
Each time a wire bobbin is changed, the welding torch should be removed from the power
source and blown clean with compressed air.
The wire end must not have sharp edges when inserted into the wire liner.
For detailed information see instruction manuals for welding torches.
6.4
Cooling unit
For the cooling unit it is sufficient to keep the inside clean. A dusty environment requires a
more frequent cleaning.
WARNING!
Before any actions are taken, disconnet the cooling unit from the mains power
supply (disconnect the ILME 4-way connector from the power source).
To clean the cooling unit do the following:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Disconnect and remove the cooling unit from the power source.
