BE SURE THAT ALL INSTALLATION, OPERATION, MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR PROCEDURES ARE
PERFORMED ONLY BY QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS.
FOR ENGINE
powered equipment.
1.h. To avoid scalding, do not remove the
radiator pressure cap when the engine is
hot.
1.a. Turn the engine off before troubleshooting and maintenance
work unless the maintenance work requires it to be running.
____________________________________________________
1.b. Operate engines in open, well-ventilated
areas or vent the engine exhaust fumes
outdoors.
____________________________________________________
1.c. Do not add the fuel near an open flame
welding arc or when the engine is running.
Stop the engine and allow it to cool before
refueling to prevent spilled fuel from vaporizing on contact with hot engine parts and
igniting. Do not spill fuel when filling tank. If
fuel is spilled, wipe it up and do not start
engine until fumes have been eliminated.
____________________________________________________
1.d. Keep all equipment safety guards, covers and devices in
position and in good repair.Keep hands, hair, clothing and
tools away from V-belts, gears, fans and all other moving
parts when starting, operating or repairing equipment.
____________________________________________________
1.e. In some cases it may be necessary to remove safety
guards to perform required maintenance. Remove
guards only when necessary and replace them when the
maintenance requiring their removal is complete.
Always use the greatest care when working near moving
parts.
___________________________________________________
1.f. Do not put your hands near the engine fan.
Do not attempt to override the governor or
idler by pushing on the throttle control rods
while the engine is running.
ELECTRIC AND
MAGNETIC FIELDS
may be dangerous
2.a. Electric current flowing through any conductor causes
localized Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF). Welding
current creates EMF fields around welding cables and
welding machines
2.b. EMF fields may interfere with some pacemakers, and
welders having a pacemaker should consult their physician
before welding.
2.c. Exposure to EMF fields in welding may have other health
effects which are now not known.
2.d. All welders should use the following procedures in order to
minimize exposure to EMF fields from the welding circuit:
2.d.1. Route the electrode and work cables together - Secure
them with tape when possible.
2.d.2. Never coil the electrode lead around your body.
2.d.3. Do not place your body between the electrode and
work cables. If the electrode cable is on your right
side, the work cable should also be on your right side.
2.d.4. Connect the work cable to the workpiece as close as
possible to the area being welded.
___________________________________________________
1.g. To prevent accidentally starting gasoline engines while
turning the engine or welding generator during maintenance
work, disconnect the spark plug wires, distributor cap or
magneto wire as appropriate.
2.d.5. Do not work next to welding power source.

SAFETY
ARC RAYS can burn.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can
kill.
3.a. The electrode and work (or ground) circuits
are electrically “hot” when the welder is on.
Do not touch these “hot” parts with your bare
skin or wet clothing. Wear dry, hole-free
gloves to insulate hands.
3.b. Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulation.
Make certain the insulation is large enough to cover your full
area of physical contact with work and ground.
In addition to the normal safety precautions, if welding
must be performed under electrically hazardous
conditions (in damp locations or while wearing wet
clothing; on metal structures such as floors, gratings or
scaffolds; when in cramped positions such as sitting,
kneeling or lying, if there is a high risk of unavoidable or
accidental contact with the workpiece or ground) use
the following equipment:
• Semiautomatic DC Constant Voltage (Wire) Welder.
• DC Manual (Stick) Welder.
• AC Welder with Reduced Voltage Control.
3.c. In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding, the electrode,
electrode reel, welding head, nozzle or semiautomatic
welding gun are also electrically “hot”.
3.d. Always be sure the work cable makes a good electrical
connection with the metal being welded. The connection
should be as close as possible to the area being welded.
3.e. Ground the work or metal to be welded to a good electrical
(earth) ground.
3.f. Maintain the electrode holder, work clamp, welding cable and
welding machine in good, safe operating condition. Replace
damaged insulation.
3.g. Never dip the electrode in water for cooling.
3.h. Never simultaneously touch electrically “hot” parts of
electrode holders connected to two welders because voltage
between the two can be the total of the open circuit voltage
of both welders.
3.i. When working above floor level, use a safety belt to protect
yourself from a fall should you get a shock.
3.j. Also see Items 6.c. and 8.
4.a. Use a shield with the proper filter and cover
plates to protect your eyes from sparks and
the rays of the arc when welding or observing
open arc welding. Headshield and filter lens
should conform to ANSI Z87. I standards.
4.b. Use suitable clothing made from durable flame-resistant
material to protect your skin and that of your helpers from
the arc rays.
4.c. Protect other nearby personnel with suitable, non-flammable
screening and/or warn them not to watch the arc nor expose
themselves to the arc rays or to hot spatter or metal.
FUMES AND GASES
can be dangerous.
5.a. Welding may produce fumes and gases
hazardous to health. Avoid breathing these
fumes and gases. When welding, keep
your head out of the fume. Use enough
ventilation and/or exhaust at the arc to keep
fumes and gases away from the breathing zone. When
welding with electrodes which require special
ventilation such as stainless or hard facing (see
instructions on container or MSDS) or on lead or
cadmium plated steel and other metals or coatings
which produce highly toxic fumes, keep exposure as
low as possible and below Threshold Limit Values (TLV)
using local exhaust or mechanical ventilation. In
confined spaces or in some circumstances, outdoors, a
respirator may be required. Additional precautions are
also required when welding on galvanized steel.
5. b. The operation of welding fume control equipment is affected
by various factors including proper use and positioning of
the equipment, maintenance of the equipment and the specific welding procedure and application involved. Worker
exposure level should be checked upon installation and
periodically thereafter to be certain it is within applicable
OSHA PEL and ACGIH TLV limits.
5.c. Do not weld in locations near chlorinated hydrocarbon vapors
coming from degreasing, cleaning or spraying operations.
The heat and rays of the arc can react with solvent vapors to
form phosgene, a highly toxic gas, and other irritating products.
5.d. Shielding gases used for arc welding can displace air and
cause injury or death. Always use enough ventilation,
especially in confined areas, to insure breathing air is safe.
5.e. Read and understand the manufacturerʼs instructions for this
equipment and the consumables to be used, including the
material safety data sheet (MSDS) and follow your
employerʼs safety practices. MSDS forms are available from
your welding distributor or from the manufacturer.
5.f. Also see item 1.b.

SAFETY
WELDING and CUTTING
SPARKS can
cause fire or explosion.
6.a. Remove fire hazards from the welding area.
If this is not possible, cover them to prevent
the welding sparks from starting a fire.
Remember that welding sparks and hot
materials from welding can easily go through small cracks
and openings to adjacent areas. Avoid welding near
hydraulic lines. Have a fire extinguisher readily available.
6.b. Where compressed gases are to be used at the job site,
special precautions should be used to prevent hazardous
situations. Refer to “Safety in Welding and Cutting” (ANSI
Standard Z49.1) and the operating information for the
equipment being used.
6.c. When not welding, make certain no part of the electrode
circuit is touching the work or ground. Accidental contact
can cause overheating and create a fire hazard.
6.d. Do not heat, cut or weld tanks, drums or containers until the
proper steps have been taken to insure that such procedures
will not cause flammable or toxic vapors from substances
inside. They can cause an explosion even though they have
been “cleaned”. For information, purchase “Recommended
Safe Practices for the Preparation for Welding and Cutting of
Containers and Piping That Have Held Hazardous
Substances”, AWS F4.1 from the American Welding Society
(see address above).
6.e. Vent hollow castings or containers before heating, cutting or
welding. They may explode.
CYLINDER may explode
if damaged.
7.a. Use only compressed gas cylinders
containing the correct shielding gas for the
process used and properly operating
regulators designed for the gas and
pressure used. All hoses, fittings, etc. should be suitable for
the application and maintained in good condition.
7.b. Always keep cylinders in an upright position securely
chained to an undercarriage or fixed support.
7.c. Cylinders should be located:
• Away from areas where they may be struck or subjected to
physical damage.
• A safe distance from arc welding or cutting operations and
any other source of heat, sparks, or flame.
7.d. Never allow the electrode, electrode holder or any other
electrically “hot” parts to touch a cylinder.
7.e. Keep your head and face away from the cylinder valve outlet
when opening the cylinder valve.
7.f. Valve protection caps should always be in place and hand
tight except when the cylinder is in use or connected for
use.
7.g. Read and follow the instructions on compressed gas
cylinders, associated equipment, and CGA publication P-l,
“Precautions for Safe Handling of Compressed Gases in
Cylinders,” available from the Compressed Gas Association
1235 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202.
6.f. Sparks and spatter are thrown from the welding arc. Wear oil
free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy shirt,
cuffless trousers, high shoes and a cap over your hair. Wear
ear plugs when welding out of position or in confined places.
Always wear safety glasses with side shields when in a
welding area.
6.g. Connect the work cable to the work as close to the welding
area as practical. Work cables connected to the building
framework or other locations away from the welding area
increase the possibility of the welding current passing
through lifting chains, crane cables or other alternate circuits. This can create fire hazards or overheat lifting chains
or cables until they fail.
6.h. Also see item 1.c.
6.I. Read and follow NFPA 51B “ Standard for Fire Prevention
During Welding, Cutting and Other Hot Work”, available
from NFPA, 1 Batterymarch Park,PO box 9101, Quincy, Ma
022690-9101.
6.j. Do not use a welding power source for pipe thawing.
FOR ELECTRICALLY
powered equipment.
8.a. Turn off input power using the disconnect
switch at the fuse box before working on
the equipment.
8.b. Install equipment in accordance with the U.S. National
Electrical Code, all local codes and the manufacturerʼs
recommendations.
8.c. Ground the equipment in accordance with the U.S. National
Electrical Code and the manufacturerʼs recommendations.

SAFETY
PRÉCAUTIONS DE SÛRETÉ
Pour votre propre protection lire et observer toutes les instructions
et les précautions de sûreté specifiques qui parraissent dans ce
manuel aussi bien que les précautions de sûreté générales suivantes:
Sûreté Pour Soudage A LʼArc
1. Protegez-vous contre la secousse électrique:
a. Les circuits à lʼélectrode et à la piéce sont sous tension
quand la machine à souder est en marche. Eviter toujours
tout contact entre les parties sous tension et la peau nue
ou les vétements mouillés. Porter des gants secs et sans
trous pour isoler les mains.
b. Faire trés attention de bien sʼisoler de la masse quand on
soude dans des endroits humides, ou sur un plancher
metallique ou des grilles metalliques, principalement dans
les positions assis ou couché pour lesquelles une grande
partie du corps peut être en contact avec la masse.
c. Maintenir le porte-électrode, la pince de masse, le câble
de soudage et la machine à souder en bon et sûr état
defonctionnement.
d.Ne jamais plonger le porte-électrode dans lʼeau pour le
refroidir.
e. Ne jamais toucher simultanément les parties sous tension
des porte-électrodes connectés à deux machines à souder
parce que la tension entre les deux pinces peut être le
total de la tension à vide des deux machines.
f. Si on utilise la machine à souder comme une source de
courant pour soudage semi-automatique, ces precautions
pour le porte-électrode sʼapplicuent aussi au pistolet de
soudage.
2. Dans le cas de travail au dessus du niveau du sol, se protéger
contre les chutes dans le cas ou on recoit un choc. Ne jamais
enrouler le câble-électrode autour de nʼimporte quelle partie
du corps.
3. Un coup dʼarc peut être plus sévère quʼun coup de soliel,
donc:
a. Utiliser un bon masque avec un verre filtrant approprié
ainsi quʼun verre blanc afin de se protéger les yeux du rayonnement de lʼarc et des projections quand on soude ou
quand on regarde lʼarc.
b. Porter des vêtements convenables afin de protéger la
peau de soudeur et des aides contre le rayonnement de
lʻarc.
c. Protéger lʼautre personnel travaillant à proximité au
soudage à lʼaide dʼécrans appropriés et non-inflammables.
4. Des gouttes de laitier en fusion sont émises de lʼarc de
soudage. Se protéger avec des vêtements de protection libres
de lʼhuile, tels que les gants en cuir, chemise épaisse, pantalons sans revers, et chaussures montantes.
5. Toujours porter des lunettes de sécurité dans la zone de
soudage. Utiliser des lunettes avec écrans lateraux dans les
zones où lʼon pique le laitier.
6. Eloigner les matériaux inflammables ou les recouvrir afin de
prévenir tout risque dʼincendie dû aux étincelles.
7. Quand on ne soude pas, poser la pince à une endroit isolé de
la masse. Un court-circuit accidental peut provoquer un
échauffement et un risque dʼincendie.
8. Sʼassurer que la masse est connectée le plus prés possible
de la zone de travail quʼil est pratique de le faire. Si on place
la masse sur la charpente de la construction ou dʼautres
endroits éloignés de la zone de travail, on augmente le risque
de voir passer le courant de soudage par les chaines de levage, câbles de grue, ou autres circuits. Cela peut provoquer
des risques dʼincendie ou dʼechauffement des chaines et des
câbles jusquʼà ce quʼils se rompent.
9. Assurer une ventilation suffisante dans la zone de soudage.
Ceci est particuliérement important pour le soudage de tôles
galvanisées plombées, ou cadmiées ou tout autre métal qui
produit des fumeés toxiques.
10. Ne pas souder en présence de vapeurs de chlore provenant
dʼopérations de dégraissage, nettoyage ou pistolage. La
chaleur ou les rayons de lʼarc peuvent réagir avec les vapeurs
du solvant pour produire du phosgéne (gas fortement toxique)
ou autres produits irritants.
11. Pour obtenir de plus amples renseignements sur la sûreté,
voir le code “Code for safety in welding and cutting” CSA
Standard W 117.2-1974.
PRÉCAUTIONS DE SÛRETÉ POUR
LES MACHINES À SOUDER À
TRANSFORMATEUR ET À
REDRESSEUR
1. Relier à la terre le chassis du poste conformement au code de
lʼélectricité et aux recommendations du fabricant. Le dispositif
de montage ou la piece à souder doit être branché à une
bonne mise à la terre.
2. Autant que possible, Iʼinstallation et lʼentretien du poste seront
effectués par un électricien qualifié.
3. Avant de faires des travaux à lʼinterieur de poste, la debrancher à lʼinterrupteur à la boite de fusibles.
4. Garder tous les couvercles et dispositifs de sûreté à leur
place.

at the disconnect switch or fuse box before working on this equipment.
• Do not touch electrically hot parts.
• Always connect the Power Wave grounding lug
(located inside the reconnect input access door) to
a proper safety (Earth) ground.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The electrode supply may be either from reels, ReadiReels, spools, or bulk packaged drums or reels.
Observe the following precautions:
a) The electrode must be routed to the wire drive
unit so that the bends in the wire are at a minimum, and also that the force required to pull the
wire from the reel into the wire drive unit is kept at
a minimum.
b) The electrode is “hot” when the gun trigger is
pressed and must be insulated from the boom
and structure.
c) If more than one wire feed unit shares the same
boom and are not sharing the some power source
output stud, their wire and reels must be insulated
from each other as well as insulated from their
mounting structure.
MOUNTING THE WIRE DRIVE UNIT
BOOM MOUNTING OF WIRE DRIVE UNIT
Mount the wire drive unit by means of the 4 holes in
the bottom of the wire drive case. (See Figure A.1)
The gearbox assembly is electrically “hot” when the
gun trigger is pressed. Therefore, make certain the
gearbox does not come in contact with the structure
on which the unit is mounted.
The wire feed unit should be mounted so that the
drive rolls are in a vertical plane, so that dirt will not
collect in the drive roll area. Position the mechanism
so it will point down at about a 45° angle so the wire
feed gun cable will not be bent sharply as it comes
from the unit.

MOUNTING CONTROL BOX AND
RECEPTACLE CONFIGURATION
The Control Box is designed for use in a variety of
configurations. A boom model feeder is shipped from
the factory separated from the Wire Drive, with the
necessary receptacles installed. In the case of a
bench model feeder, the Control Box can be removed
from the Wire Drive and mounted in a location convenient to the user. Doing so requires separating the
Control Box from the Wire Drive, mounting the Control
Box in the desired location, determining which receptacle configuration is best for the application and
installing the receptacle or receptacles for connecting
control cables in the chosen configuration.
SEPARATING THE CONTROL BOX FROM
THE WIRE DRIVE (BENCH MODEL ONLY)
1. Remove the bottom and center option panels from
the front of the Control Box.
9.00 (228.6mm)
2. Disconnect the Control Box to Wire Drive connection by disconnecting the 6-pin plug located in the
hole which passes through the lower back of the
Control Box to the Wire Drive.
3. Loosen the four screws inside the Control Box
located along the sides of the back of the Control
Box, two near the bottom and two near the middle.

installed in the Control Box. An Input/Output
Receptacle Kit, K1548-1, is available for this purpose.
Instructions for installing the receptacles in a Control
Box are included with the kit.
Alternately, a bench feeder can be converted to a
non-typical boom system by installing an output
receptacle in a Wire Drive (use K1549-1) and an input
receptacle in a Control Box (use K1550-1). This system would meet the rule stated above: This means
that the first component in the system (the Power
Wave 455) has an output receptacle. The last component in the system (the Control Box) has an input
receptacle. The component in between (the Wire
Drive) has both an input and output receptacle.
A Control Box can be mounted to the front of a Power
Wave 455. When mounting a Control Box removed
from a bench feeder, no receptacles are required; all
connections are internal. When mounting a Control
Box configured as part of a boom system (both input
and output receptacles are already installed in the
Control Box) the receptacles do not get used. The
wiring harness from either J1 or J2 (the signals are
identical) must be disconnected from the harness on
the back of one of the receptacles (internally). This
open connector is then used during mounting to the
Power Wave 455.
MOUNTING ON POWER SOURCE
DETERMINING RECEPTACLE CONFIGURATION
The components in a Power Wave / Power Feed system are connected in a ʻdaisy chainedʼ fashion. This
means that the first component in the system (always
the Power Wave 455) must have an output receptacle. The last component in the system (typically the
Wire Drive) must have an input receptacle. Every
component in between must have both an input and
output receptacle. (Output receptacles are characterized by having insulated ʻsocketʼ connections, while
input receptacles have uninsulated ʻpinʼ connections.)
In a factory supplied bench system, the Power Wave
455 has an output receptacle, and the Wire Drive has
an input receptacle. The connection between the
Control Box and the Wire Drive is internal; no external
cables or receptacles are required.
In a factory supplied boom system, the Power Wave
455 has an output receptacle, the Control Box has
both input and output receptacles, and the Wire Drive
has an input receptacle.
If a bench feeder is to be converted to a typical boom
feeder, both input and output receptacles must be
Complete instructions for mounting a Control Box to
the front of a Power Wave 455 are included in the
Power Wave 455 Operatorʼs manual.

CONTROL CABLE CONNECTIONS
• All system control cables are the same.
• All control cables can be connected end to end to
extend their length.
• All system equipment must be connected to a control cable.
The Power Wave / Power Feed Wire Feeders offer
flexibility in the connection of system components.
This system uses the same type of control cable
between all of the system components. Connections
can be “daisy chained” from one system component to
another. Components can be connected in any order,
as long as the proper input and output receptacles are
present. See MOUNTING CONTROL BOX AND

CONTROL CABLE SPECIFICATIONS
ELECTRODE CABLE CONNECTIONS
Most welding applications run with the electrode being
positive (+). For those applications, connect the electrode cable between the wire feeder and the positive
(+) output stud on the power source (located beneath
the spring loaded output cover near the bottom of the
case front).
A work lead must be run from the negative (-) power
source output stud to the work piece. The work piece
connection must be firm and secure, especially if
pulse welding is planned. Excessive voltage drops at
the work piece connection often result in unsatisfactory pulse welding performance.
When negative electrode polarity is required, such as
in some Innershield™ applications, install as above,
except change the output connections at the power
source (electrode cable to the negative (-) stud, and
work cable to the positive (+) stud).
It is recommended that only genuine Lincoln control
cables be used at all times. Lincoln cables are specifically designed for the communication and power
needs of the Power Wave 455 / Power Feed system.
The use of non-standard cables, especially in lengths
greater than 25 feet(7.6m), can lead to communication
problems (system shutdowns), poor motor acceleration (poor arc starting) and low wire driving force (wire
feeding problems).
Lincoln control cables are copper 5 conductor cable in
a SO-type rubber jacket. There is one 20 gauge twisted pair for network communications. This pair has an
impedance of approximately 120 ohms and a propagation delay per foot of less than 2.1 nanoseconds.
There are two 12 gauge conductors that are used to
supply the 40 VDC to the network. The fifth wire is 18
gauge and is used as an electrode sense lead.

INSTALLATION
Connect the one end of the electrode cable, to the
power source output terminal of the desired polarity.
Connect the other end of the electrode cable to the
connection bar at the front of the wire drive feed plate
using the provided bolt and lockwasher. The e l e c trode cable lug must be against the feed plate. Be
sure the cable, connection bar, and gun adapter bushing all make tight metal-to-metal electrical contact.
The Electrode cable should be sized according to the
specifications given in the work cable connections
section.
WORK CABLE CONNECTIONS
Connect a work lead of sufficient size and length (per
the following table) between the proper output terminal on the power source and the work. Be sure the
connection to the work makes tight metal-to-metal
electrical contact.
To avoid interference problems with other equipment
and to achieve the best possible operation, route all
cables directly to the work or wire feeder. Avoid
excessive lengths, bundle the electrode and ground
cables together where practical, and do not coil
excess cable.

WIRE DRIVE GEAR RATIO (HIGH
OR LOW SPEED)
The speed range capability and drive torque of the
Power Feed 10 Dual wire drive can be easily and
quickly changed by changing the external drive gear.
The Power Feed 10 Dual is shipped with both a high
speed and a low speed gear. As shipped from the factory, the low speed (high torque) gear is installed on
the feeder. If this is the desired gear ratio, no
changes need to be made.
SELECTING THE PROPER GEAR RATIO
See the Technical Specifications at the front of this
section for feed speed and wire size capabilities with
high and low speed gear ratios. To determine
whether you should be using the high or low speed
ratio use the following guidelines:
- If you need to operate at wire feed speeds above
800 IPM (20 m/m), you will need to install the high
speed gear (large 30 tooth, 1.6 inch diameter gear).
- If you do not need to run at wire feed speeds in
excess of 800 IPM (20 m/m), you should use the low
speed gear (small, 20 tooth, 1.1 inch diameter gear).
Using the low speed ratio will provide the maximum
available wire driving force. Note: If you are feeding
only small diameter wires you may, at your option,
install the high speed ratio.
CHANGING THE WIRE DRIVE RATIO
lows:
When using an inverter type power source, Use the
largest welding (electrode and ground) cables that are
practical. At least 2/0 copper wire — even if the average output current would not normally require it.
When pulsing, the pulse current can reach very high
levels. Voltage drops can become excessive, leading
to poor welding characteristics, if undersized welding
cables are used.
Changing the ratio requires a gear change and a PC
board switch change. The Power Feed 10 Dual is
shipped with both a high speed and a low speed gear.
As shipped from the factory, the low speed (high
torque) gear is installed on the feeder. For identification purposes, the low speed (high torque) gear has
20 teeth and is 1.1 inches in diameter. The high speed
gear has 30 teeth and is 1.6 inches in diameter.
WARNING
Power down the Power Feed by turning off its companion PowerWave power source. For maximum
safety, disconnect the control cable from the Power
Feed.

RATIO CHANGE PROCEDURE:
1) Pull open the Pressure Door.
2) Remove the Phillips head screw retaining the pinion gear to be changed and remove the gear. If
the gear is not easily accessible or difficult to
remove, remove the feed plate from the gearbox.
To remove feed plate:
a) Loosen the clamping collar screw using a 3/16”
Allen wrench. The clamping collar screw is
accessed from the bottom of the feed plate. It is
the screw which is perpendicular to the feeding
direction.
b) Loosen the retaining screw, which is also
accessed from bottom of feeder, using a 3/16”
Allen wrench. Continue to loosen the screw until
the feed plate can be easily pulled off of the wire
feeder.

b) Locate the 8-position DIP switch near the top
edge of the PC board, centered left to right.
The setting will be made on the right most
switch, S8.
c) Using a pencil or other small object, slide the
switch down, to the “0” position, when the low
speed gear is installed. Conversely, slide the
switch up, to the “1” position, when the high
speed gear is installed. Refer to Figure A.3.
d) Replace the cover and screws. The PC board
will “read” the switch at power up, automatically adjusting all control parameters for the
speed range selected.
3) Loosen, but do not remove, the screw on the
lower right face of the feed plate with a 3/16”
Allen wrench.
4) Remove the screw on the left face of the feed
plate. If changing from high speed (larger gear) to
low speed (smaller gear), line the lower hole on
the left face of the feed plate with the threads on
the clamping collar. Line the upper hole with the
threads to install larger gear for high speed feeder. If feed plate does not rotate to allow holes to
line up, further loosen the screw on right face of
feed plate.
5) Remove the small gear from the output shaft.
Lightly cover the output shaft with engine oil or
equivalent. Install gear onto output shaft and
secure with flat washer, lock washer, and Phillips
head screw which were previously removed.
6) Tighten the screw on lower right face of feed
plate.
7) Re-attach feed plate to wire feeder if removed in
Step 2.
8) Feed plate will be rotated out-of-position due to

Contained in the kit are the water lines and quick connect water line fittings that install in the wire feed
head. Follow the installation instructions included in
the kit. Water cooled guns can be damaged very
quickly if they are used even momentarily without
water flowing. To protect the gun, we recommended
that a water flow sense kit be installed. This will prevent wire feeding if no water flow is present.

This circuit is intended to be used as a means of stopping wire feeding in the event that the water cooler
(for a water cooled gun) is not turned on. Water
cooled guns can be damaged very quickly if they are
used even momentarily without water flowing. A
Lincoln K1536-1 flow sensor kit is available for this
purpose.
The K1536-1 has two control leads coming from the
unit that become electrically common when water is
flowing. The .25 inch tab terminals of leads 570 and
572, inside the feed head case, are disconnected from
each other. Then the flow sensor control wires are
connected to leads 570 and 572. Refer to the instructions that come with flow sensor kit for detailed installation instructions.

INSTALLATION
OPTIONAL FEATURES INSTALLATION
A number of Optional Features are available for use
with Power Feed 10 Dual. Some Installation information is provided in this section, REFER TO THE
INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH EACH KIT FOR
DETAILED INFORMATION REGARDING INSTALLATION.
OPTIONAL PANELS FOR CONTROL BOX
All optional panels for the control box are described in
the ACCESSORIES section of this manual along with
their installation instructions as are all other pieces of
optional equipment.
The Power Feed Control Box is designed to accept
three control panels, two ʻlargeʼ and one “small” panels are needed to make up a complete control panel
for the Control Box. Panels can be mounted in one of
three positions: Upper, middle and lower.
Each Power Feed 10 Dual is shipped with a
Control/Display (CD) panel, a large panel, installed in
the upper position, and a CV/Gouge (CV/G) panel
(another large panel) in the lower position. The middle
position has a Head Select (HS) panel.
The CD panel must be installed in every Control Box.
The small panel can be the Head Select panel or a
Dual Procedure / Memory panel. The remaining large
panel can be one of the following: CV/G, M, MX2, or
MSP2. The features of each are described in the
Operation section of this manual.
There are extra mounting holes in the upper and middle positions which allow the upper two panels to be
interchanged. (Instead of the upper, middle and lower
panels being large, small and large, they could be
installed in the order small, large, large.) This may be
done for convenience sake, or to take advantage of
the Large Security Door option.
GENERAL PANEL INSTALLATION
GUIDELINES:
Installation or removal of any panel can be done with
only a Phillips screwdriver after the system power is
turned off. To remove a panel, remove the two screws
holding it in place, remove the push-on chassis
ground wire and remove the harness connection to
the Control Box main PC board. To install any panel,
reverse that process. Turn power back on when complete (option panels are only recognized at power up.
Do not install panels with the power on.) Note that
removal or installation of any panel may also require
the removal of the other panel, in order to have easy
access to the PC board connectors. Detailed installation instructions are shipped with each option panel.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Power Feed Wire Feeders are high performance,
digitally controlled, modular wire feeders. Properly
equipped, they can support the GMAW, GMAW-P,
FCAW, and SMAW processes. The Power Feed wire
feeders are designed to be a part of a modular, multi
process welding system.
The Power Feed Wire Feeders are 4 driven roll feeders that operate on 40VDC input power.
The Power Feed wire feeders are designed to be
used with Power Feed compatible power sources,
operating as a system. Each component in the system
has special circuitry to “talk with” the other system
components, so each component (power source, wire
feeder, electrical accessories) knows what the other is
doing at all times. This shared information lays the
groundwork for a system with superior welding performance.
The Power Feed Wire Feeders are available configured in both boom and bench models. In addition, the
Control Box and wire feed unit can also be purchased
separately. The bench model is designed so that it
can easily be converted to a boom feeder.
RECOMMENDED PROCESSES
The Power Feed Wire Feeders can be set up in a
number of configurations. It is designed to be used for
GMAW, GMAW-P, FCAW, and SMAW for a variety of
materials, including mild steel, stainless steel, and
cored wires.
RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT
The Power Feed Wire Feeders must be used with
power sources having digital communication capabilities and 40 VDC auxiliary power. The presently available power source is the PowerWave 455.
DUTY CYCLE
The Power Feed Wire Feeders are capable of welding
at a 100% duty cycle (continuous welding). The power
source will be the limiting factor in determining system
duty cycle capability.
CONTROL BOX OPERATION
The most frequently used Control Box controls and
settings are external; some features are accessed by
internal controls and settings.
CONTROL BOX PANELS - UPPER PANEL
CONTROL/DISPLAY PANEL: (REQUIRED)
Each Power Feed Control box must have a
Control/Display (CD) panel. This panel consists of
adjustment knobs, digital displays and a series of
indicator lights (LEDs). There are two knobs; each
has a 4 digit LED display and a pair of LEDs associated with it. Knobs and displays have dual functions;
the LEDs indicate which function at any given time.
This panel also has a dual color Status LED, used to
indicate the general health status of the Control Box
and its connection to other components in the system
(power source, wire drive, etc.).
The left knob/display is labeled WFS / AMPS (wire
feed speed/amps). In non-synergic modes, the WFS
control changes the wire feed speed according to the
desired procedure. In synergic welding modes (synergic CV, pulse GMAW) WFS is the dominant control
parameter, controlling all other variables.
POWER FEED 10 DUAL
B-2
OPERATION
The user adjusts WFS according to factors such as
weld size, penetration requirements, heat input, etc.
The power source then uses the WFS setting to adjust
its output characteristics (output voltage, output current) according to pre-programmed settings contained
in the power source. In constant current modes (arc
gouging, stick, TIG) this control adjusts the output current, in amps. An LED lights to inform the user which
function (WFS or amps) is active.This display can be
either English or metric units. Further, this display can
be set up to display either WFS or amps when using
wire welding modes. (See SETTING DIP SWITCHES
in the INSTALLATION section.)
The right knob is labeled VOLTS / TRIM. In constant
voltage modes (synergic CV, standard CV) the control
adjusts the welding voltage. In pulse synergic welding
modes (pulse GMAW only) the user can change the
Trim setting to adjust the arc length. It is adjustable
from 0.50 to 1.50. A Trim setting of 1.00 means than
no adjustments will be made to the preset arc lengths,
and is optimum for most conditions. An LED lights to
inform the user which function (volts or trim) is active.
Both displays indicate preset values, according to the
weld mode selected, when not welding. Once welding begins, they switch to displaying actual values. At
that time, the indicator LEDs will flash to signify actual
values are being displayed. The displays hold the
actual values for 5 seconds after a weld is stopped.
Turning a knob during the hold time shuts off the hold,
and returns the meters to their preset values.
The allowable settings are determined by other system components. The WFS range, for instance, is
dependent upon the gear range in the Wire Drive and
on the welding programs in the Power Wave power
source. The voltage and current are similarly limited
by programs in the Power Wave.
B-2
CONTROL BOX PANELS - “SMALL” OPTIONAL PANELS
K1542-14 Head Select Panel:
This panel allows for the selection of the feed head to
be used in a two feed head system. All selections are
done with push buttons and indicator lights. To select
the feed head to be used, simply press the desired
feed head button (Head 1 or Head 2).
K1542-13 Dual Procedure / Memory Panel:
This panel provides three functions: Dual Procedure,
Head Select and Memory. Dual Procedure provides
for setting and manual selection of two procedures.
Selection can be done at the panel, or through a dual
procedure welding gun switch connected to the Wire
Drive trigger receptacle. Head Select chooses the
wire feed head that will be used. Selection can be
done at the panel or simply by pulling the trigger of the
gun to be used. Memory provides four independent
storage locations for Control Box settings. Each of the
four memory buttons will store a procedure for each
feed head. All selections are done with push buttons
and indicator lights. Dual Procedure can be used without making use of Memories; the opposite is also true.
To set Procedure A, hit the Procedure button until the
A LED illuminates. Make all desired settings on the
Control Box. Settings are automatically saved as
changes are made. Do the same for procedure B. If
using a gun switch to select procedures, hit the
Procedure button until the Gun LED illuminates.
When in the Gun mode is selected, either light A or B
will be flashing. The flashing light identifies the
Procedure, A or B, which is selected by a dual procedure gun switch. If no dual procedure switch is
plugged in, the Procedure defaults to A. Settings are
saved at power down.
To load a memory, make sure that the desired head is
active and set all adjustments and functions on the
Power Feed to the desired settings. To save the settings to Memory 1, simply hit the Save button (its red
light will illuminate) and then hit the 1 button. The settings are now saved in Memory 1. The contents of
Memory 1 will not change, even if the power is turned
off, until the next time the Save key and the 1 key are
hit in sequence.
Note: It is not required to load all 4 memories at once,
nor is it necessary to load them in order. Memory can
be loaded at any time, except when welding.
Similarly, the Save key is not active while the gun trigger is pulled, or while welding.
POWER FEED 10 DUAL
B-3
OPERATION
Memory has an advanced feature called ʻmemory
reminderʼ. When the Save key is hit, the memory
reminder function flashes the LED of the most recently
used memory, so the operator can save procedures in
the most recently used memory if desired. It is not
necessary to save to the most recently used memory;
the memory reminder function, and itʼs flashing LED,
can be ignored.
Memories cannot be changed without using the Save
key. When slight procedure adjustments are necessary, but there is no desire to ʻpermanentlyʼ save the
adjustments to a memory, this can be done with
Procedure A and Procedure B. Set the Panel to A or
B, and recall a memory setting. Make the slight procedure adjustment -- it will be saved in A or B, whichever was selected when the adjustments were made.
The memory location will not have changed.
To recall a memory setting, simply push that memory
button. That memoryʼs contents will be immediately
recalled to the Control box.
If the ʻMemory Change with Trigger Pullʼ DIP switch is
on
(see SETTING DIP SWITCHES in the
INSTALLATION section) it is possible to recall a given
memory by quickly pulling and releasing the gun trigger before welding. To switch to memory ʻnʼ, simply
pull and release the gun trigger ʻnʼ times without
attempting to weld. The trigger pulls and releases
must be done quickly, in rapid succession. If too much
time is allowed to pass, the memory location will not
change. Note that whenever the trigger is pulled, a
welding sequence (preflow, run-in, etc.) begins, so the
electrode should not be allowed to contact the work
piece.
CONTROL BOX PANELS -- ʻLARGEʼ OPTION PANELS
A description of the set up controls, Preflow, Run In,
Arc Control, Postflow, and Crater, and their maximum
and minimum values, is in CONTROL BOX PANELS SET UP CONTROLS DESCRIPTION in this section.

selecting one of three weld modes: CV/MIG, CV/Flux
Cored and CC/Stick/Gouge, and a single knob for
adjustment of Arc Control. All other set up parameters, Preflow, Postflow, and Crater, default to zero or
off. Run-in defaults to the minimum value, or to the
weld speed depending on the position of its associated dip switch. (See SETTING DIP SWITCHES in the
INSTALLATION section.) Burn back defaults to the
on-board trimmer adjustment. When used with the
Dual Procedure or Memory options, only the
WFS/Amps and Volts/Trim settings are saved.
Selecting the CC/Stick/Gouge mode immediately
energizes the output terminals on the power source.
The output current is set by the Amps control. The
Volts/Trim adjustment has no effect in this mode.
K1542-11 MX2 Panel:
This panel provides a selection of four weld modes:
CV/MIG, CV/Flux Cored, CC/Stick/soft and
CC/Stick/Crisp through a toggle switch and indicator
lights (LEDs). It allows for adjustment of all set up
parameters, Preflow, Run In, Arc Control, Burnback,
Postflow, and Crater, through an up/down toggle
switch, indicator lights and a 3 digit display.
Weld modes are selected with the Mode Select
switch, an up/down center-off momentary toggle
switch. Moving the switch bat up or down moves the
Weld Mode LED in the corresponding direction.
Holding the switch in either direction will cause the
indicator to move quickly in the corresponding direction until the switch is released, or the upper or lower
limit is reached.
CV/Gouge Panel:(Std.)
The CV/G Panel has a single toggle switch for selecting between two weld modes: CV welding and arc
gouging. All other set up parameters, Preflow, Arc
Control, Postflow, and Crater, default to zero or off.
Run-in defaults to the minimum value, or to the weld
speed depending on the position of its associated dip
switch. (See SETTING DIP SWITCHES in the
INSTALLATION section.) Burn back defaults to the
on-board trimmer adjustment. When used with the
Dual Procedure or Memory options, only the
WFS/Amps and Volts/Trim settings are saved.
To adjust Set Up parameters, first select the Set Up
parameter for adjustment, and then adjust the displayed value up or down.
Set Up parameters are selected with the Select
switch, an up/down center-off momentary toggle
switch. Moving the switch bat up or down moves the
Weld Mode LED in the corresponding direction.
Holding the switch in either direction will cause the
indicator to move quickly in the corresponding direction until the switch is released, or the upper or lower

POWER FEED 10 DUAL
B-4
OPERATION
The value of the active Set Up parameter, as defined
by the Set Up LED, is displayed on the MX2 panel Set
Up display. The value can be modified with the Set
switch. The Set switch is an up/down center-off
momentary toggle switch. Moving the switch bat up or
down adjusts the displayed value in the corresponding direction. Holding the switch in either direction will
cause the display to move quickly in the corresponding direction until the switch is released, or the upper
or lower parameter limit is reached.
To energize the output studs in either CC/Stick mode,
the right Control/Display panel knob, labeled
Volts/Trim, must be used. The Volts/Trim knob must
be turned clockwise roughly a quarter revolution to
energize the output studs. (The Volts/trim display will
indicate ʻOnʼ when the studs are energized.)
Similarly, turning the knob a quarter turn counterclockwise de-energizes the output studs. If a CC/Stick
weld mode is entered through use of the Dual
Procedure, the studs will be in the same state as
when they were last used. If a CC/Stick weld mode
is entered through a Memory recall, the studs will be
de-energized.
K1542-12 MSP2 Panel:
This panel provides a selection of over 25 weld
modes, including CV, pulse, FCAW and CC, through
a toggle switch and indicator lights (LEDs). It allows
for adjustment of all set up parameters, Preflow, Run
In, Arc Control, Burnback, Postflow, and Crater,
through an up/down toggle switch, indicator lights and
a 3 digit display.
To adjust a set up parameter (Weld Mode being one
of those parameters), first select one of the set up
parameters for adjustment, and then adjust the displayed value up or down.
Set up parameters are selected with the Select switch,
an up/down center-off momentary toggle switch.
Moving the switch bat up or down moves an LED in
the corresponding direction. Holding the switch in
either direction will cause the indicator to move quickly
in the corresponding direction until the switch is
released, or the upper or lower limit is reached.
The value of the active set up parameter is shown on
the MSP2 panel digital display. The value can be modified with the Set switch. The Set switch is an up/down
center-off momentary toggle switch. Moving the switch
bat up or down adjusts the displayed value in the corresponding direction. Holding the switch in either direction will cause the display to move quickly in the corresponding direction until the switch is released, or the
upper or lower parameter limit is reached.
B-4
To energize the output studs in either CC/Stick mode,
the right Control/Display panel knob, labeled
Volts/Trim, must be used. The Volts/Trim knob must
be turned clockwise roughly a quarter revolution to
energize the output studs. (The Volts/trim display will
indicate ʻOnʼ when the studs are energized.)
Similarly, turning the knob a quarter turn counterclockwise de-energizes the output studs. If a CC/Stick
weld mode is entered through use of the Dual
Procedure, the studs will be in the same state as
when they were last used. If a CC/Stick weld mode is
entered through a Memory recall, the studs will be deenergized.
CONTROL BOX PANELS -- SET UP
CONTROLS DESCRIPTION
Certain large option panels can modify the set up
parameters Preflow, Run In, Arc Control, Burnback,
Postflow, and Crater. The meaning of those parameters, and their maximum and minimum values, follows.
Preflow - Time delay after the trigger is pulled, but
before weld starts, during which shielding gas flows.
Weld start is defined as the time when both the power
source is energized and the Wire Drive begins feeding
wire. Adjustable from 0.0 (Off) to 2.5 seconds in 0.1s
increments.
Run In - Wire feed speed during arc starting. Wire
Drive will feed wire at the Run In speed for one second, or until weld current flows. Low speed gear
range: Off (Run In speed equals weld wire feed
speed) or adjustable from 50 to 150 IPM (1.25 to 3.80
MPM). High speed gear range: Off (Run In speed
equals weld wire feed speed) or adjustable from 75 to
150 IPM (2.00 to 3.80 MPM). NOTE: Run In settings
over 150 IPM produce strange display values used for
troubleshooting and service. If encountered, reset Run
In to 150 IPM or less.
Arc Control - Unitless characteristic, also known as
Inductance or Wave Control. Allows operator to vary
the arc characteristics from “soft” to “harsh” in all weld
modes. Adjustable from -10.0 to 10.0 in increments of
0.1. Off (0.0) is nominal.
Burnback - Time delay after the trigger is released
during which the power source remains energized but
the Wire Drive stops feeding wire. Adjustable from
0.00 (Off) to 0.25 seconds in 0.01 second increments.
Postflow - Time delay after burnback is complete,
during which shielding gas flows. Adjustable from 0.0
(Off) to 10.0 seconds in 0.1 second increments.
POWER FEED 10 DUAL
B-5
OPERATION
Crater - Used only when welding with the 4-Step trigger mode. Can be set to Off or On. When On,
Adjustments can be made to WFS and Volts/Trim on
the Control/Display panel. These settings are then
used for ʻcrateringʼ when in the 4-Step trigger mode
(see explanation of 2 Step and 4 Step operation
below). When Off, ʻcrateringʼ is not possible.
CONTROL BOX -- PC BOARD ADJUSTMENTS
The Control Box Mother board provides the capability
to adjust some wire feeding parameters as follows:
Acceleration: The motor acceleration can be varied
in five steps, from slow to fast. See “Setting DIP
Switches in the Control Box” section.
Burnback: For the options which cannot adjust the
Burnback set up parameter (CV/G and M panels) a
PC board adjustment (trimmer R5) is provided. The
range is 0.0 to 0.25 seconds, increasing in the clockwise direction. This is ignored by options which have
the ability to adjust Burnback (MX2 and MSP2 panels).
Run In: For the options which cannot adjust the Run
In set up parameter (CV/G and M panels) a PC board
DIP switch setting is provided. In one position, the run
in speed will be the minimum Wire Drive WFS. At the
other setting, run in will occur at the same speed as
set on the WFS knob. This DIP switch setting is
ignored by options which have the ability to adjust
Run In (MX2 and MSP2 panels). See “Setting DIP
Switches in the Control Box” section.
B-5
With system power on, select the weld mode for which
you want to set limits. If a Dual Procedure option is
installed, select the procedure A. Turn the system
power off. Remove the two screws holding the
Control/Display panel to the Control Box, but do not
unplug it. Tilt the panel down to allow access to DIP
switches S1-1, S2-6 and S2-7. (See “Setting DIP
Switches in the Control Box” section.) Do not allow
the panel to hang by the wiring harness.
Determine if the Wire Drive is set up for low or high
speed. If low speed, S1-1 should be off. If high speed,
set S1-1 to on.
To adjust the lower limit, set S2-6 to on. Turn the
power on and adjust the WFS/Amps and Volts/Trim
knobs to the desired lower limits. Note: You will not be
able to adjust the lower limit outside of the minimum
and maximum wire feed speed of the Wire Drive, nor
above the upper limit. Turn the system power off.
Return S2-6 to off.
To adjust the upper limit, set S2-7 to on. Turn the
power on and adjust the WFS/Amps and Volts/Trim
knobs to the desired upper limits. Note: You will not
be able to adjust the upper limit outside of the minimum and maximum wire feed speed of the Wire
Drive, nor below the lower limit. Turn the system
power off. Return S2-7 to off.
If a Dual Procedure panel is installed, repeat the
above procedure with the Procedure B selected.
When done, attach the Control/Display panel to the
Control Box. The machine is now ready for normal
operation with the new limits.
CONTROL BOX -- USING OPERATING LIMITS
CONTROL BOX -- SETTING OPERATING LIMITS
Upper and lower operating limits can be set for the
WFS/Amps setting and the Volts/Trim setting. Doing
so requires knowledge of how to set the limits, and
access to the PC board in the Control Box.
There are two independent sets of limits, Procedure A
limits and Procedure B limits. If a DP/M door option is
installed, the A and B limits must be set independently. If there is no DP/M door option, the Control Box
defaults to Procedure A, and only Procedure A limits
can be set.
Once set, limits apply to all weld modes. Limiting
Procedure A to 200 to 300 inches per minute, for
example, limits the ability of the operator to adjust his
WFS in pulse, CV and FCAW weld modes. Limiting
the Volts to 23.0 to 24.5 would limit the ability of the
operator to adjust his Volts in synergic and non-synergic CV modes. Procedure B could be set up with different limits. Limits are absolute -- they will override
values stored in the memories. Note that limits do not
apply to set up parameters, such a Preflow and Arc
Control.

WIRE DRIVE OPERATION
COLD FEED / GAS PURGE SWITCH:
The most frequently used Wire Drive settings are
external; some features are accessed by internal settings.
The Wire Drive has a Cold Feed/Gas Purge Switch
located near the gun connector. This is an up/down
center-off momentary toggle switch.
WIRE DRIVE SETTINGS -- EXTERNAL
When held in the up position, the Wire Drive will feed
wire, but neither the power source nor the gas solenoid will be energized. When cold feeding, the feed
speed can be adjusted by rotating the WFS encoder
knob on the Control Box. Adjusting the cold feed will
not affect the run in or welding wire feed speed.
When the cold feed switch is released, the cold feed
value is saved.
2 STEP / 4 STEP SWITCH:
The Wire Drive has a 2 Step / 4 Step switch located on
the gun side of the Status LED. This switch has no
effect in CC modes of operation, such as stick welding.
When using 2 Step Logic:
1. Closing the gun trigger initiates the welding
sequence (preflow, run in, etc.).
When this switch is held in the down position, the gas
solenoid valve is energized, but neither the power
source nor the drive motor will be energized.
2. Opening the gun trigger ends the welding
sequence (burnback, postflow, etc.).
When using 4 Step Logic With Crater Fill “OFF”:
1. Closing the gun trigger initiates the welding
sequence (preflow, run in, etc.).
2. Opening the trigger after the welding arc is established allows the weld to continue as long as current flows. If the arc goes out, the 4 step cycle is
reset.
3. Closing the trigger again allows the weld to continue.
4. Opening the trigger again ends the welding
sequence (burnback, postflow, etc.).
When using 4 Step Logic With Crater Fill “ON”:
1. Closing the gun trigger initiates the welding
sequence (preflow, run in, etc.).
2. Opening the trigger after the welding arc is established allows the weld to continue as long as current flows. If the arc goes out, the 4 step cycle is
reset.
3. Closing the trigger again changes the wire feed
speed and the Volts/Trim to the Crater values,
and the weld to continues
4. Opening the trigger again ends the welding
sequence (burnback, postflow, etc.).

FEEDING ELECTRODE AND BRAKE
ADJUSTMENT
1) Press end of gun against a solid object that is
electrically isolated from the welder output and
press the gun trigger for several seconds.
1) Turn the Reel or spool until the free end of the
electrode is accessible.
2) If the wire "birdnests", jams, or breaks at the drive
roll, the drive roll pressure is too great. Back the
pressure setting out turn, run new wire through
gun, and repeat above steps.
2) While tightly holding the electrode, cut off the bent
end and straighten the first 6" (150 mm). Cut off
the first 1" (25 mm). (If the electrode is not properly straightened, it may not feed or may jam causing
a "birdnest".)
3) Insert the free end through the incoming guide
tube.
4) Press the Cold Inch key or the Cold Feed Mode
gun trigger and push the electrode into the drive
roll.
WARNING
When feeding with the gun trigger, unless “COLD
FEED” trigger mode is selected, the electrode and
drive mechanism are always “HOT” to work and
ground and could remain “HOT” several seconds after
the gun trigger is released.
___________________________________________
3) If the only result is drive roll slippage, disengage
the gun, pull the gun cable forward about 6" (150
mm). There should be a slight waviness in the
exposed wire. If there is no waviness, the pressure is too low. Increase the pressure setting
turn, reconnect the gun, tighten locking clamp and
repeat the above steps.
PROCEDURE FOR SETTING ANGLE
OF FEED PLATE
1) Loosen the clamping collar screw using a 3/16"
Allen wrench. The clamping collar screw is
accessed from the bottom of the feed plate. It is
the screw which is perpendicular to the feeding
direction.
2) Rotate feed plate to the desired angle and tighten
clamping collar screw.
5) Feed the electrode through the gun.
6) Adjust the brake tension with the thumbscrew on
the spindle hub, until the reel turns freely but with
little or no overrun when wire feeding is stopped.
Do not overtighten.
DRIVE ROLL PRESSURE SETTING
GAS GUARD REGULATOR SETTING
1) With the gas supply shut off, the Gas Guard regulator flow adjusting Key should be set to maximum
(full clockwise) which is rated to be 60 SCFH (28
l/min).
2) Adjust gas supply flow rate for a level higher than
will be required, then adjust Gas Guard flow
adjusting Key counterclockwise to the desired gas
flow rate.
The Power Feed 10 Dual pressure is factory pre-set to
about position “2" as shown on the pressure indicator
on the front of the feed plate door. This is an approximate setting.
The optimum drive roll pressure varies with type of
wire, surface condition, lubrication, and hardness.
Too much pressure could cause “birdnesting”, but too
little pressure could cause wire feed slippage with
load and/or acceleration. The optimum drive roll setting can be determined as follows:

MAKING A WELD
1) Use only a network compatible power source.
2) Properly connect the electrode and work leads for
the correct electrode polarity.
3) Set all desired parameters such as trigger logic,
Run-in Speed, Acceleration, Electrode polarity, etc.
per “DIP SWITCH SETUP” in the INSTALLATION
section.
4) Set 2-step, 4-step switch on wire drive to desired
mode of operation. (Refer to “2-step/4-step switch
operation” in this section.)
5) Select Weld Mode. (Refer to Control Box
Operation in this section).
6) Use Control Select switches, increment/decrement
switches, and encoder knobs to set desired parameters for weld depending on what options are
installed. (Refer to Control Box Operation in this
section).
7) Feed the electrode through the gun and cable and
then cut the electrode within approximately .38"
(9.5 mm) of the end of the contact tip for solid wire
and within approximately .75" (19mm) of the extension guide for cored wire.
8) Connect work cable to metal to be welded. Work
cable must make good electrical contact to the
work. The work must also be grounded as stated
in "Arc Welding Safety Precautions".
WARNING
When using an Open Arc process,
it is necessary to use correct eye,
head, and body protection.
____________________________________
9) If used, be sure shielding gas valve is turned on.
10) Position electrode over joint. End of electrode
may be lightly touching the work.
11) Lower welding helmet, close gun trigger, and start
welding. Hold the gun so the contact tip to work
distance gives the correct electrical stickout as
required for the procedure being used.
13) If required, starting can be optimized by adjusting
the acceleration and/or run-in speed. (Refer to
Control Box Operation in this section).
WIRE REEL CHANGING
At the end of a coil, remove the last of the old electrode coil from the conductor cable by either pulling it
out at the nozzle end of the gun or by using the following procedure:
1) Cut the end of the electrode off at the gun end. Do
not break it off by hand because this puts a slight
bend in the wire making it difficult to pull it back
through the nozzle.
2) Disconnect the gun cable from the gun connector
on the Power Feed 10 Dual wire drive unit and lay
the gun and cable out straight.
3) Using pliers to grip the wire, pull it out of the cable
from the connector end.
4) After the electrode has been removed, reconnect
the gun cable to the drive. Load a new reel of electrode per the instructions in “Wire Reel Loading” in
this section.
WIRE FEED OVERLOAD PROTECTION
The wire drive has solid-state overload protection of
the wire drive motor. If the wire drive motor becomes
overloaded for an extended period of time the wire
drive will issue a shutdown command to the Control
Box and force itʼs status light to blink between green
and red. The Control Box turns off the power source,
wire feed and gas solenoid. The status light on the
wire drive will continue to blink between green and red
for about 30 seconds before the wire drive will automatically reset. At that time, the wire drive will issue a
shutdown over command to the Control Box that will
return the system to normal operation. The wire drive
will force itʼs status light to solid green.
Overloads can result from improper tip size, liner,
drive rolls, or guide tubes, obstructions or bends in the
gun cable, feeding wire that is larger than the rated
capacity of the feeder or any other factors that would
impede normal wire feeding. (See “Avoiding Wire
Feeding Problems” in the MAINTENANCE section).
12) To stop welding, release the gun trigger and then
pull the gun away from the work after the arc goes

DESCRIPTION AND INSTALLATION OF
OPTIONAL CONTROL BOX PANELS
GENERAL PANEL INSTALLATION
GUIDELINES:
A number of Optional Features are available for use
with Power Feed 10 Dual. Some Installation information is provided in this section, REFER TO THE
INSTRUCTIONS THAT COME WITH EACH KIT FOR
DETAILED INFORMATION REGARDING INSTALLATION.
Installation or removal of any panel can be done with
only a Phillips screwdriver after the system power is
turned off. To remove a panel, remove the two screws
holding it in place, remove the push-on chassis
ground wire and remove the harness connection to
the Control Box main PC board. To install any panel,
reverse that process. Turn power back on when complete (option panels are only recognized at power up.
Do not install panels with the power on.) Note that
removal or installation of any panel may also require
the removal of the other panel, in order to have easy
access to the PC board connectors. Detailed installation instructions are shipped with each option panel.
OPTIONAL PANELS FOR CONTROL BOX
All optional panels for the control box are described in
the ACCESSORIES section of this manual along with
their installation instructions as are all other pieces of
optional equipment.
The Power Feed Control Box is designed to accept
three control panels, two ʻlargeʼ and one “small” panels are needed to make up a complete control panel
for the Control Box. Panels can be mounted in one of
three positions: Upper, middle and lower.
Each Power Feed 10 Dual is shipped with a
Control/Display (CD) panel, a large panel, installed in
the upper position, and a CV/Gouge (CV/G) panel
(another large panel) in the lower position. The middle
position has a Head Select (HS) panel.
The CD panel must be installed in every Control Box.
The small panel can be the Head Select panel or a
Dual Procedure / Memory panel. The remaining large
panel can be one of the following: CV/G, M, MX2, or
MSP2. The features of each are described in the
Operation section of this manual.
There are extra mounting holes in the upper and middle positions which allow the upper two panels to be
interchanged. (Instead of the upper, middle and lower
panels being large, small and large, they could be
installed in the order small, large, large.) This may be
done for convenience sake, or to take advantage of
the Large Security Door option.
Note: The CD panel must be installed in either the
middle or the upper position; its harness is not long
enough to allow installation in the lower position.

dard or option panel. Discard the old panel or
save for future use.
K1542-6 “M” PANEL
The M Panel provides a fixed large bat toggle switch
selection of three Power Source modes. The upper
position selects the generic CV/MIG mode from the
power source, the middle position selects the
CV/FLUX CORED mode, and the lower position
selects the CC/STICK/GOUGE mode. Arc control is
accomplished through the use of the ARC CONTROL
potentiometer. The arc control value is actually a trim
with zero being the nominal and the scale ranging
from (-10) to (+10). Preflow, postflow, and spot time
default to zero or off. Run-in defaults to the minimum
value, or weld speed depending on the position of its
associated dip switch. Burn back defaults to the on
board trimmer adjustment.
3. Tilt the new option panel away from the front
opening of the Control Box cabinet and plug the
white electrical connector into the proper connector (12 pin) on the right side of the main printed
circuit board until the connector latches into
place. Attach the chassis wire (if equipped) to the
back of the new panel.
4. Slide the new panel through the opening, taking
care not to damage the connections and the printed circuit board on the back.
5. Align the screw holes, replace the two screws and
tighten.
NOTE: Due to the nature of fixed position switches,
potentiometers, and default values, this option
does not allow the mode, arc control, timers,
or Burn back values to be included in dual procedure or memory information. They are overridden by the fixed values.
CC/STICK/GOUGE Mode
Selecting the CC/STICK/GOUGE mode on this panel
automatically energizes the output terminals on the
power source, making the power source immediately
ready to weld. In the CC modes, the output current is
set by the Amps control, and the Volts/Trim adjustment has no effect in this mode. In this mode, the Arc
Control adjusts the arc force. Increasing the Arc
Control setting increases the arc force, making the arc
more harsh but less likely to stick. Decreasing the Arc
Control setting decreases the arc force, making the
arc softer and smoother.
Constant Voltage (CV/Weld, CV/MIG, CV/Flux
Cored) Procedures
When in this mode, the Arc Control adjusts the inductance. (This adjustment is often referred to as ʼpinch”.
Inductance is inversely proportional to pinch.)
Increasing the Arc Control setting decreases the
inductance, which results in the arc getting colder and
pinched tighter. Decreasing the Arc Control setting
increases the inductance, which results in the arc getting wider (reduced pinch).
Installation is as follows:
1. Turn off power.
2. Remove the two screws from the front of the standard or option panel at the location you choose to
install your new option, (bottom), of the Control
Box cabinet. Save the screws for re-use. Unplug

CC/STICK CRISP
CC/STICK SOFT
Due to the nature of the system, the following feature is
required for safety reasons. Upon entering any constant
current (CC) mode, the right encoder, labeled “Volts,
Trim”, on the Display/Control Panel acts as a “soft” contactor switch. The encoder knob must be turned CW at
least 45° to activate the output (turning CCW 45° deactivates the output). This prevents the output from inadvertently becoming “hot” when scrolling through the weld
modes. The exception to this rule is when the weld mode
is entered by a change in procedure (using a memory
panel such as the K1542-9 Memory/Dual Procedure
panel). In this case, the state of the contactor is recalled
as it was left when the procedure was exited.
In the CC modes, the output current is set by the Amps
control, and the Volts/Trim adjustment has no effect in
this mode. In this mode, the Arc Control adjusts the arc
force. Increasing the Arc Control setting increases the
arc force, making the arc more harsh but less likely to
stick. Decreasing the Arc Control setting decreases the
arc force, making the arc softer and smoother.

turned CW at least 45° to activate the output (turning
CCW 45° deactivates the output). This prevents the
output from inadvertently becoming “hot” when
scrolling through the weld modes. The exception to
this rule is when the weld mode is entered by a
change in procedure (using a memory panel such as
the K1542-9 Memory/Dual Procedure panel). In this
case, the state of the contactor is recalled as it was
left when the procedure was exited.

In the CC modes, the output current is set by the
Amps control, and the Volts/Trim adjustment has no
effect in this mode. In this mode, the Arc Control
adjusts the arc force. Increasing the Arc Control setting increases the arc force, making the arc more
harsh but less likely to stick. Decreasing the Arc
Control setting decreases the arc force, making the
arc softer and smoother.
Parameter Selection
The PARAMETER SELECT switch is a momentary
large bat three position toggle switch that defaults to
the center (off) position. Moving the switch bat up
advances the parameter indicator in the upward direction, down advances it in the downward direction.
Holding the switch in either direction will result in the
indicator advancing at a high rate of speed in that
direction, until the switch is released. When the indicator reaches its upper or lower limit, advancing ceases
until the direction of the switch is changed.
Parameter Adjustment
The value of the active parameter, as defined by the
parameter indicator, is displayed on the parameter
display. The PARAMETER SET switch is a momentary large bat three position toggle switch that defaults
to the center (off) position. Moving the switch bat up
advances the displayed value in the positive direction,
down advances it in the negative direction. Holding
the switch in either direction will result in the displayed
value advancing at a high rate of speed in that direction, until the switch is released. When the indicator
reaches its upper or lower limit, advancing ceases
until the direction of the switch is changed.
GMAW Pulse Procedures
In these procedures, the actual voltage greatly
depends on the waveform used. The peak currents,
background currents, rise times, fall times, and pulse
times all affect the actual voltage. The actual voltage
for a given wire feed speed is not directly predictable
unless the waveform is known. In this case, it is not
practical to preset an actual voltage for the procedure.
Instead, an arc length adjustment is provided. The
machine “knows” what the best arc length is at the
given wire feed speed but allows the operator to
change it.
The arc length trim (usually referred to simply as
“trim”) can be adjusted between 0.500 and 1.500 on
the Control Boxʼs Volts/Trim display. An Trim of 1.000
means that no adjustments will be made to the preset
arc lengths. A Trim setting less than 1.000 decreases
the preset arc lengths. The arc length trim adjustment
is factored in at all wire feed speed settings.
Increasing the Trim by 10 percent at a given wire feed
speed also increases all the other arc length trim set-
POWER FEED 10 DUAL
C-6
ACCESSORIES
tings of the procedure by 10 percent.
Lincoln Power Wave power sources utilizes a control
scheme known as adaptive control in all pulse modes.
Because the Power Wave utilizes adaptive control, it
can adjust the pulsing parameters based on changes
in the arc due to changes in the electrical sitckout of
the electrode. (Electrical stickout is the distance from
the contact to to the workpiece.) The Power Wave is
optimized for use with a .75” stickout. The adaptive
behavior is programmed to support a stickout range
from .5” to 1.25”. In the low and high end of the wire
feed speed ranges of most processes, the adaptive
behavior may be restricted. This is a physical restriction due to reaching the edge of the operating range
for the process.
The Arc Control adjustment allows the pulse frequency to be varied. Increasing the Arc control causes the
frequency setting to increase, while decreasing the
Arc Control causes the frequency to decrease.
Varying the Arc Control, and hence, the pulse frequency, affects the droplet transfer and allows finetuning for different welding positions.

Descriptions
Indicator Lights - Extra bright red LEDʼs for viewing at
almost any angle. Always indicate the procedure, also
indicate active memory and save mode if applicable.
Switches - Discreet PC board mounted switches, UL
and CSA approved, with an IEC rating of protection
class IP67.
Switch Covers - Heavy duty switch covers of silicone
rubber providing a high degree of protection from heat

K1542-13 DUAL PROCEDURE /
MEMORY PANEL (SMALL PANEL)
Note: This panel will function with S24004-3 and higher Control Box Software only.
The Dual Procedure / Memory panel provides for the
selection of either of two procedures, or a gun switch
for remote selection of the procedure. In addition,
there are six permanent memory storage locations for
saving commonly used procedures. Procedures A and
B are “soft” type memories that record any changes
made to them. The additional memory locations are
“hard” or more permanent type memories. Any
changes made must be consciously saved back to
them. Furthermore, each memory contains only one
procedure, therefore any combination of memories
may be recalled to procedure A and B.

which procedure the gun switch is requesting.
Memory Selection
RECALL - When a memory key is depressed its indicator comes on, and its contents are copied to the
active procedure. As long as no changes are made to
the contents of that procedure, the memory indicator
will be on anytime that procedure is active. This indicates that their contents are the same. Any change to
that procedure will cause the memory indicator to go
off, indicating that they are no longer equal.
K1543, K1544 AND K1545 INPUT
CABLE ASSEMBLIES
SAVE - The save mode allows “hard” memories to be
changed. Pressing the SAVE key will light the save
indicator, and enter the save mode. In the save mode,
the indicator for the memory that was the source of
the active procedureʼs contents will blink, whether
their contents are still equal or not. This feature allows
the user to choose to save an active procedure back
to its source, or some other location.
K1544 - Consists of a 5-conductor control cable with a
5-pin control cable plug and a 4/0 electrode cable. It is
rated at 600 amps, 60% duty cycle and is available in
lengths of 8', 16', 25', and 50'.
To complete the save transaction requires the selection of one of the memory keys. When the memory
key is pressed in the save mode, itʼs contents are
overwritten with the contents of the active procedure.
This means that the contents of the memory location
and the active procedure are now equal, and therefore, by definition, each of their indicators will be lit,
and the save mode will be exited. To exit the save
mode without saving, depress the save key a second
time. This feature allows the operator to determine the
source of the active procedureʼs contents without
actually overwriting it.
Available Cable Assemblies:
K1543 - Control cable only. Consists of a 5-conductor
control cable with a 5-pin control cable plug, without
electrode cable, and is available in lengths of 8', 16',
25', 50' and 100'.
K1545 - Control cable and a 4/0 (85 mm2) electrode
cable with Twist-Mate™ connector on one end and a
stud terminal on the other. It is rated at 500 amps,
60% duty cycle and is available in lengths of 8', 16',
25', and 50'.

Avoiding Wire Feeding Problems
Safety Precautions
Wire feeding problems can be avoided by observing
the following gun handling and feeder set up procedures:
a) Do not kink or pull cable around sharp corners.
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
• Do not touch electrically live parts such
as output terminals or internal wiring.
• When inching with gun trigger, electrode and
drive mechanism are “hot” to work and
ground and could remain energized several
seconds after the gun trigger is released.
• Turn OFF input power at welding power
source before installation or changing
drive roll and/or guide tubes.
• Welding power source must be connected
to system ground per the National
Electrical Code or any applicable local
codes.
• Only qualified personnel should
perform maintenance work.

b) Keep the electrode cable as straight as possible
when welding or loading electrode through cable.
c) Do not allow dolly wheels or trucks to run over
cables.
d) Keep cable clean by following maintenance
instructions.
e) Use only clean, rust-free electrode. The Lincoln
electrodes have proper surface lubrication.
f) Replace contact tip when the arc starts to become
unstable or the contact tip end is fused or
deformed.
g) Do not use excessive wire spindle brake settings.
h) Use proper drive rolls, wire guides and drive roll
pressure settings.
Routine Maintenance
Drive Rolls and Guide Tubes
Periodic Maintenance
After feeding every coil of wire, inspect the drive roll
section. Clean it as necessary. The driver rolls and
Inner Wire Guides are stamped with the wire sizes
they will feed. If a wire size other than that stamped
on the roll(s) is to be used, the roll(s) and Inner Wire
Guides must be changed.
Wire Drive Motor and Gearbox
Every year inspect the gearbox and coat the gear
teeth with a moly-disulfide filled grease. Do not use
graphite grease.
All drive rolls have two identical grooves. The rolls
may be flipped over to use the other groove.
Every six months check the motor brushes. Replace
them if they are less than 1/4” long.
See “Procedure to Install Drive Rolls and Wire
Guides” in the INSTALLATION section for roll changing instructions.

If this occurs while welding, the status LED should be flashing red on
the object that lost heart beat.
Otherwise, look for any nodes that
are flashing green. This indicates
they have not been recognized and
there is a power source problem
(see power source trouble shooting
section). If the status LED is either
flashing or solid red, there may be a
problem with continuity in the communication lines. Check the lines for
continuity, in the cable and harnessing (refer to wiring diagram).
