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. 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.c. 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.d. Read and understand the manufacturer’s instructions for this
equipment and the consumables to be used, including the
material safety data sheet (MSDS) and follow your
employer’s safety practices. MSDS forms are available from
your welding distributor or from the manufacturer.
5.e. Also see item 1.b.

SAFETY
WELDING 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.
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.
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.
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 manufacturer’s
recommendations.
8.c. Ground the equipment in accordance with the U.S. National
Electrical Code and the manufacturer’s 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 L’Arc
1. Protegez-vous contre la secousse électrique:
a. Les circuits à l’électrode 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 s’isoler 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 l’eau 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 s’applicuent 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 n’importe quelle partie
du corps.
3. Un coup d’arc peut être plus sévère qu’un coup de soliel,
donc:
a. Utiliser un bon masque avec un verre filtrant approprié
ainsi qu’un verre blanc afin de se protéger les yeux du rayonnement de l’arc et des projections quand on soude ou
quand on regarde l’arc.
b. Porter des vêtements convenables afin de protéger la
peau de soudeur et des aides contre le rayonnement de
l‘arc.
c. Protéger l’autre personnel travaillant à proximité au
soudage à l’aide d’écrans appropriés et non-inflammables.
4. Des gouttes de laitier en fusion sont émises de l’arc de
soudage. Se protéger avec des vêtements de protection libres
de l’huile, 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 l’on pique le laitier.
iv
6. Eloigner les matériaux inflammables ou les recouvrir afin de
prévenir tout risque d’incendie 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 d’incendie.
8. S’assurer que la masse est connectée le plus prés possible
de la zone de travail qu’il est pratique de le faire. Si on place
la masse sur la charpente de la construction ou d’autres
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 d’incendie ou d’echauffement des chaines et des
câbles jusqu’à ce qu’ils 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
d’opérations de dégraissage, nettoyage ou pistolage. La
chaleur ou les rayons de l’arc 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
l’électricité 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, I’installation et l’entretien du poste seront
effectués par un électricien qualifié.
3. Avant de faires des travaux à l’interieur de poste, la debrancher à l’interrupteur à la boite de fusibles.
4. Garder tous les couvercles et dispositifs de sûreté à leur
place.

SAFETY
ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC)
Conformance
Products displaying the CE mark are in conformity with European Community Council Directive of 3 May
1989 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to electromagnetic compatibility
(89/336/EEC). It was manufactured in conformity with a national standard that implements a harmonized
standard: EN 50 199 Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Product Standard for Arc Welding Equipment. It
is for use with other Lincoln Electric equipment. It is designed for industrial and professional use.
Introduction
All electrical equipment generates small amounts of electromagnetic emission. Electrical emission may be
transmitted through power lines or radiated through space, similar to a radio transmitter. When emissions are
received by other equipment, electrical interference may result. Electrical emissions may affect many kinds of
electrical equipment; other nearby welding equipment, radio and TV reception, numerical controlled machines,
telephone systems, computers, etc. Be aware that interference may result and extra precautions may be required
when a welding power source is used in a domestic establishment.
Installation and Use
The user is responsible for installing and using the welding equipment according to the manufacturer s instructions.
If electromagnetic disturbances are detected then it shall be the responsibility of the user of the welding equipment
to resolve the situation with the technical assistance of the manufacturer. In some cases this remedial action may
be as simple as earthing (grounding) the welding circuit, see Note. In other cases it could involve constructing an
electromagnetic screen enclosing the power source and the work complete with associated input filters. In all cases
electromagnetic disturbances must be reduced to the point where they are no longer troublesome.
Note: The welding circuit may or may not be earthed for safety reasons according to national codes.
Changing the earthing arrangements should only be authorized by a person who is competent to
assess whether the changes will increase the risk of injury, e.g., by allowing parallel welding
current return paths which may damage the earth circuits of other equipment.
Assessment of Area
Before installing welding equipment the user shall make an assessment of potential electromagnetic problems in the
surrounding area. The following shall be taken into account:
a) other supply cables, control cables, signaling and telephone cables; above, below and adjacent to the
welding equipment;
b) radio and television transmitters and receivers;
c) computer and other control equipment;
d) safety critical equipment, e.g., guarding of industrial equipment;
e) the health of the people around, e.g., the use of pacemakers and hearing aids;
f) equipment used for calibration or measurement;
g) the immunity of other equipment in the environment. The user shall ensure that other equipment being
used in the environment is compatible. This may require additional protection measures;
h) the time of day that welding or other activities are to be carried out.

SAFETY
ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC)
The size of the surrounding area to be considered will depend on the structure of the building and other activities
that are taking place. The surrounding area may extend beyond the boundaries of the premises.
Methods of Reducing Emissions
Mains Supply
Welding equipment should be connected to the mains supply according to the manufacturer s recommendations.
If interference occurs, it may be necessary to take additional precautions such as filtering of the mains supply.
Consideration should be given to shielding the supply cable of permanently installed welding equipment, in metallic
conduit or equivalent. Shielding should be electrically continuous throughout its length. The shielding should be
connected to the welding power source so that good electrical contact is maintained between the conduit and the
welding power source enclosure.
Maintenance of the Welding Equipment
The welding equipment should be routinely maintained according to the manufacturer s recommendations. All
access and service doors and covers should be closed and properly fastened when the welding equipment is in
operation. The welding equipment should not be modified in any way except for those changes and adjustments
covered in the manufacturers instructions. In particular, the spark gaps of arc striking and stabilizing devices should
be adjusted and maintained according to the manufacturer s recommendations.
Welding Cables
The welding cables should be kept as short as possible and should be positioned close together, running at or close
to the floor level.
Equipotential Bonding
Bonding of all metallic components in the welding installation and adjacent to it should be considered. However,
metallic components bonded to the work piece will increase the risk that the operator could receive a shock by
touching these metallic components and the electrode at the same time. The operator should be insulated from all
such bonded metallic components.
Earthing of the Workpiece
Where the workpiece is not bonded to earth for electrical safety, not connected to earth because of its size and
position, e.g., ships hull or building steelwork, a connection bonding the workpiece to earth may reduce emissions
in some, but not all instances. Care should be taken to prevent the earthing of the workpiece increasing the risk
of injury to users, or damage to other electrical equipment. Where necessary, the connection of the workpiece to
earth should be made by a direct connection to the workpiece, but in some countries where direct connection is not
permitted, the bonding should be achieved by suitable capacitance, selected according to national regulations.
Screening and Shielding
Selective screening and shielding of other cables and equipment in the surrounding area may alleviate problems of
1
interference. Screening of the entire welding installation may be considered for special applications.

INSTALLATION
OUTPUT CABLES, CONNECTIONS AND
LIMITATIONS
Connect a work lead of sufficient size and length
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 and do not coil excess cable.
CAUTION
When using an inverter type power source like the
Power Waves, use the largest welding (electrode
and work) 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.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------Most welding applications run with the electrode being
positive (+). For those applications, connect the electrode cable between the wire feeder and the positive
(+) output Twist-Mate terminal on the power source.
Connect the other end of the electrode cable to the
wire feeder at it’s proper connection point. Be sure the
connection makes tight metal-to-metal electrical contact. The electrode cable should be sized according to
the specifications given in the output cable connections section. Connect a work lead from the negative
(-) power source output Twist-Mate terminal to the
work piece. The work piece connection must be firm
and secure, especially if pulse welding is planned.
For additional Safety information regarding the electrode and work cable set-up, See the standard "SAFETY INFORMATION" located in the front of the
Instruction Manuals.
CAUTION
Excessive voltage drops caused by poor work
piece connections often result in unsatisfactory
welding performance.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEGATIVE ELECTRODE POLARITY
When negative electrode polarity is required, such as
in some Innershield applications, reverse the output
connections at the power source (electrode cable to
the negative (-) Twist-Mate terminal, and work cable
to the positive (+) Twist-Mate terminal.
When operating with electrode polarity negative the
"Electrode Sense Polarity" DIP switch must be set to the
"Negative" position on the Wire Drive Feed Head PC Board.
The default setting of the switch is positive electrode polarity. Set the Negative Polarity switch on Wire Feed Head PC
board as follows:
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill
• Turn the input power OFF at the disconnect switch or fuse box before
working on this equipment.
• Do not touch electrically hot parts.
----------------------------------------------------------1. Turn off power to the power source at the disconnect
switch.
2. Remove the front cover from the power source.
3. The feed head PC board is on the left side of the power
source. Locate the 8-position DIP switch and look for
switch 7 of the DIP switch.(See Figure A.1)
4. Using a pencil or other small object, slide the switch to
the OFF position for positive electrode polarity.
Conversely, slide the switch to the ON position for negative electrode polarity.
5. Replace the cover and screws. The PC board will“read”
the switch at power up, and configure the work voltage
sense lead appropriately.
VOLTAGE SENSING
The best arc performance occurs when the PowerWaves
have accurate data about the arc conditions. Depending
upon the process, inductance within the electrode and work
lead cables can influence the voltage apparent at the studs
of the welder. Voltage sense leads improve the accuracy of
the arc conditions and can have a dramatic effect on performance. Sense Lead Kits (K940-10, -25 or -50) are available
for this purpose.
CAUTION
If the voltage sensing is enabled but the sense
leads are missing, improperly connected, or if the
electrode polarity switch is improperly configured,
extremely high welding outputs may occur.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------The ELECTRODE sense lead (67) is built into the control
cable, and is automatically enabled for all semi-automatic
processes. The WORK sense lead (21) connects to the
Power Wave at the four pin connector. By default the
WORK voltage is monitored at the output stud in the
POWER WAVE F355i (CE). For more information on the
WORK sense lead (21), see"Work Voltage Sensing” in the
following paragraph.

POWER WAVE / POWER FEED WIRE
FEEDER INTERCONNECTIONS
(See Section F-2 for Connection Diagram)
Connect the control cable between the power source
and wire feeder. The wire feeder connection on the
POWER WAVE F355i (CE) is the 14-pin connector
located on the left side of the machine. The control
cable is keyed and polarized to prevent improper connection.
CONTROL CABLE SPECIFICATIONS
It is recommended that genuine Lincoln control cables
be used at all times. Lincoln cables are specifically
designed for the communication and power needs of
the Power Wave / Power Feed system.
CAUTION
----------------------------------------------------------1. Turn off power to the power source at the disconnect switch.
2. Remove the wrap around cover from the power
source.
3. The control board is on the center assembly facing
the case front. Locate the 8-position DIP switch and
look for switch 8 of the DIP switch (See Figure A.1).
4. Using a pencil or other small object, slide the switch
to the OFF position if the work sense lead is NOT
connected. Conversely, slide the switch to the ON
position if the work sense lead is present.
The use of non-standard cables, especially in
lengths greater than 25 ft.(7.6m), can lead to communi-cation problems (system shutdowns), poor
motor acceleration (poor arc starting) and low
wire driving force (wire feeding problems).

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
B-1
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Read this entire section of operating instructions
before operating the machine.
WARNING
The Power Wave Robotic power source is designed to
be a part of a modular, multi-process welding system.
Depending on configuration, it can support constant
current, constant voltage, constant power, pulse on
pulse and pulse welding modes.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
• Unless using cold feed feature, when
feeding with gun trigger, the electrode and drive mechanism are
always electrically energized and
could remain energized several seconds after the welding ceases.
• Do not touch electrically live parts or electrodes
with your skin or wet clothing.
• Insulate yourself from the work and ground.
• Always wear dry insulating gloves.
-----------------------------------------------------------
FUMES AND GASES can be dangerous.
The Power Wave power source is designed to be
used with the Robotic family of Power Feed wire feeders, 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 Robotic Controller knows what the
other is doing at all times. These components communicate with Arc Link.
The POWER WAVE F355i (CE) is a high performance, digitally controlled inverter welding power
source capable of complex, high-speed waveform
control. Properly equipped, it can support the GMAW,
GMAW-P and FCAW processes. It carries an output
rating of 350 Amps, 34 Volts at 60% duty cycle and
300 Amps, 32 volts at 100% duty cycle.
• Keep your head out of fumes.
• Use ventilation or exhaust to remove
fumes from breathing zone.
-----------------------------------------------------------
WELDING SPARKS can cause fire or
explosion.

NOMINAL PROCEDURES
The Power Wave is designed to operate with 3/4"
electrode stick-out for CV and Pulse processes.
FRINGE PROCEDURES
Excessively short or long electrode stick-outs may
function only on a limited basis, if at all.
MAKING A WELD
B-3
In non-synergic modes, the WFS control behaves
more like a conventional CV power source where
WFS and voltage are independent adjustments.
Therefore to maintain the arc characteristics, the operator must adjust the voltage to compensate for any
changes made to the WFS.
• VOLTS / TRIM:
In constant voltage modes (pulse on pulse GMAW,
standard CV) the control adjusts the welding voltage.
WARNING
The serviceability of a product or structure utilizing the welding programs is and must be the sole
responsibility of the builder/user. Many variables
beyond the control of The Lincoln Electric
Company affect the results obtained in applying
these programs. These variables include, but are
not limited to, welding procedure, plate chemistry
and temperature, weldment design, fabrication
methods and service requirements. The available
range of a welding program may not be suitable
for all applications, and the build/user is and must
be solely responsible for welding program selection.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------First, consider the desired welding process and the
part to be welded. Choose an electrode material,
diameter, shielding gas and process (GMAW, GMAWP, etc.)
Second, find the program in the welding software that
best matches the desired welding process. The standard software shipped with the Power Waves encompasses a wide range of common processes and will
meet most needs. If a special welding program is
desired, contact the local Lincoln Electric sales representative.
In pulse synergic welding modes (pulse GMAW only)
the user can change the Trim setting to adjust the arc
length. It is adjustable from 0.500 to 1.500. A Trim setting of 1.000 is a good starting point for most conditions.
• WELDING MODE
Selecting a welding mode determines the output characteristics of the Power Wave power source. For a
more complete description of the welding modes
available in the Power Wave and for a complete set of
weld modes programmed into the Power Wave at the
factory, refer to the weld mode print included with the
Power Wave.
• ARC CONTROL
Also known as Inductance or Wave Control. Allows
operator to vary the arc characteristics from "soft" to
"harsh" in all weld modes. It is adjustable from -10.0 to
+10.0, with a nominal setting of 00.0 (The nominal setting of 00.0 may be displayed as OFF on some Power
Feed wire feeder control panels). See the Welding
Mode descriptions, below, for detailed explanations of
how the Arc Control affects each mode.
To make a weld, the Power Wave needs to know the
desired welding parameters. The Power Feed (PF)
family of feeders communicate settings to the Power
Wave through control cable connection. Arc length,
wire feed speed, arc control, etc. are all communicated digitally via the control cable.
• WFS / AMPS:
In synergic welding modes (pulse on pulse GMAW,
pulse GMAW) WFS (wire feed speed) is the dominant
control parameter, controlling all other variables. The
user adjusts WFS according to factors such as weld
size, penetration requirements, heat input, etc. The
Power Wave then uses the WFS setting to adjust its
output characteristics (output voltage, output current)
according to pre-programmed settings contained in
the Power Wave.
POWER WAVE F355i (CE)
B-4
B-4
OPERATION
CONSTANT VOLTAGE WELDING
Non Synergic CV:
This type of CV mode behaves more like a conventional CV
power source. Voltage and WFS are independent adjustments.
Therefore to maintain the arc characteristics, the operator must
adjust the voltage to compensate for any changes made to the
WFS.
All CV Modes:
Arc Control, often referred to as wave control, adjusts the inductance of the wave shape. The wave control adjustment is similar
to the "pinch" function in that it is inversely proportional to inductance. Therefore, increasing wave control greater than 0.0
results in a harsher, colder arc while decreasing the wave control to less than 0.0 provides a softer, hotter arc. (See Figure
B.2)
FIGURE B.2
CURRENT WAVE FORM (CV)
The Power Wave utilizes "adaptive control" to compensate
for changes in electrical stick-out while welding. (Electrical
stick-out is the distance from the contact tip to the work
piece.) The Power Wave waveforms are optimized for a
0.75" (19mm) stick-out. The adaptive behavior supports a
range of stickouts from 0.50" (13mm) to 1.25" (32mm). At
very low or high wire feed speeds, the adaptive range may
be less due to reaching physical limitations of the welding
process.
Arc Control, often referred to as wave control, in pulse programs usually adjusts the focus or shape of the arc. Wave
control values greater than 0.0 increase the pulse frequency
while decreasing the background current, resulting in a tight,
stiff arc best for high speed sheet metal welding. Wave control values less than 0.0 decrease the pulse frequency while
increasing the background current, for a soft arc good for
out-of-position welding.See Figure B.3)
FIGURE B.3
CURRENT WAVE FORM (PULSE)
Current
Current
Time
PULSE-ON-PULSE™ (GMAW-PP)
Time
Pulse on Pulse™ is a Lincoln process specifically
designed for use in welding relatively thin (less than
1/4" thick) aluminum. It gives weld beads with very
consistent uniform ripple.
PULSE WELDING
Pulse welding procedures are set by controlling an overall
"arc length" variable. When pulse welding, the arc voltage is
highly dependent upon the waveform. The peak current,
back ground current, rise time, fall time and pulse frequency
all affect the voltage. The exact voltage for a given wire feed
speed can only be predicted when all the pulsing waveform
parameters are known. Using a preset voltage becomes
impractical, and instead the arc length is set by adjusting
"trim".
Trim adjusts the arc length and ranges from 0.50 to 1.50,
with a nominal value of 1.00. Trim values greater than 1.00
increase the arc length, while values less than 1.00
decrease the arc length.
All pulse welding programs are synergic. As the wire feed
speed is adjusted, the Power Wave will automatically recalculate the waveform parameters to maintain similar arc
properties.
In Pulse on Pulse modes, two distinct pulse types are
used, instead of the single pulse type normally used in
GMAW-P. A number of high energy pulses are used
to obtain spray transfer and transfer metal across the
arc. Such pulses are shown in Figure B.4. After a
number "N" of such pulses, depending on the wire
feed speed used, an identical number "N" of low energy pulses are performed. These low energy pulses,
shown in Figure B.4, do not transfer any filler metal
across the arc and help to cool the arc and keep the
heat input low.

OPERATION
Power Mode™ is a method of high speed regulation
of the output power whenever an arc is established. It
provides a fast response to changes in the arc. The
higher the Power Mode Setting, the longer the arc. If a
welding procedure is not established, the best way to
determine the Power Mode Setting is by experimentation until the desired output result is established.
The Peak Current, Background Current, and
Frequency are identical for the high energy and low
energy pulses. In addition to cooling the weld down,
the major effect of the low energy pulses is that they
form a weld ripple. Since they occur at very regular
time intervals, the weld bead obtained is very uniform
with a very consistent ripple pattern. In fact, the bead
has its best appearance if no oscillation of the welding
gun ("whipping") is used.(See Figure B.5)
In the Power Mode two variables need to be set:
FIGURE B.5
• Wire Feed Speed
• Power Mode Trim
Setting up a Power Mode procedure is similar to setting a CV MIG procedure. Select a shielding gas
appropriate for a short arc process.
When Arc Control is used in the Pulse on Pulse
modes, it does the same things it does in the other
pulsed modes: decreasing the Arc Control decreases
the droplet transfer and weld deposition rate.
Increasing the Arc Control increases the droplet transfer and weld deposition rate. Since Arc Control varies
weld droplet transfer rate, the Arc Control can be used
to vary the ripple spacing in the weld bead.
• For steel, use 75/25 Ar/CO2 shield gas.
• For stainless, select a Helium blend Tri-Mix.
• For aluminum, use 100% Ar.
Start by setting the wire feed speed based upon material thickness and appropriate travel speed. Then
adjust the Volts/Trim knob as follows:
POWER MODE™
• For steel, listen for the traditional “frying egg”
sound of a good short-arc MIG procedure to know
you have the process set correctly.
• For aluminum, simply adjust the Volts/Trim knob
until the desired arc length is obtained.
The Power Mode™ process was developed by
Lincoln to maintain a stable and smooth arc at low
procedure settings which are needed to weld thin
metal without pop-outs or burning-through. For aluminum welding, it provides excellent control and the
ability to maintain constant arc length. This results in
improved welding performance in two primary types of
applications.
Note the Volts/Trim display is simply a relative number
and DOES NOT correspond to voltage.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
• Do not touch electrically live parts or
electrode with skin or wet clothing.
• Insulate yourself from work and
ground
• Always wear dry insulating gloves.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
EXPLODING PARTS can cause
injury.
• Failed parts can explode or cause other
parts to explode when power is applied.
• Always wear a face shield and long
sleeves when servicing.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
See additional warning information
throughout this Operator’s Manual
----------------------------------------------------------CAPACITOR DISCHARGE PROCEDURE
1. Obtain a power resistor (25 ohms, 25 watts).
2. Hold resistor body with electrically insulated glove.
DO NOT TOUCH TERMINALS. Connect the resistor terminals across the two studs in the position
shown. Hold in each position for 1 second. Repeat
for all four capacitors.
D-1
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Calibration of the POWER WAVE F355i (CE) is critical
to its operation. Generally speaking the calibration will
not need adjustment. However, neglected or improperly calibrated machines may not yield satisfactory
weld performance. To ensure optimal performance,
the calibration of output Voltage and Current should
be checked yearly.
CALIBRATION SPECIFICATION
Output Voltage and Current are calibrated at the factory. Generally speaking the machine calibration will
not need adjustment. However, if the weld performance changes, or the yearly calibration check
reveals a problem, contact the Lincoln Electric
Company for the calibration software utility.
The calibration procedure itself requires the use of a
resistance load, and certified actual meters for voltage
and current. The accuracy of the calibration will be
directly affected by the accuracy of the measuring
equipment you use. Detailed instructions are available
with the utility.
RESISTOR
CAPACITOR
TERMINALS
3. Use a DC voltmeter to check that voltage is not
present across the terminals on all four capacitors.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
Routine maintenance consists of periodically blowing
out the machine, using a low pressure airstream, to
remove accumulated dust and dirt from the intake and
outlet louvers, and the cooling channels in the
machine.

TROUBLESHOOTING
USING THE STATUS LED TO
TROUBLESHOOT SYSTEM PROBLEMS
The Power Wave / Power Feed are best diagnosed as
a system. Each component (power source, user interface, and feed head) has a status light, and when a
problem occurs it is important to note the condition of
each.
Included in this section is information about the power
source Status LED, and some basic troubleshooting
charts for both machine and weld performance.
The STATUS LIGHT is a two color light that indicates
system errors. Normal operation is a steady green
light. Error conditions are indicated in the following
chart.
NOTE: The POWER WAVE F355i (CE) status light
will flash green, and sometimes red and green, for up
to one minute when the machine is first turned on.
This is a normal situation as the machine goes
through a self test at power up.
Meaning
Light
Condition
Steady Green System OK. Power source communicating normally with wire feeder and its components.
Blinking
Green
Occurs during a reset, and indicates the
POWER WAVE F355i (CE) is mapping
(identifying) each component in the system.
Normal for first 1-10 seconds after power is
turned on, or if the system configuration is
changed during operation
A l t e r n a t i n g Non-recoverable system fault. If the PS
Green and Status light is flashing any combination of
red and green, errors are present in the
Red
POWER WAVE F355i (CE). Read the error
code before the machine is turned off.
Error Code interpretation through the Status
light is detailed in the Service Manual.
Individual code digits are flashed in red with
a long pause between digits. If more than
one code is present, the codes will be separated by a green light.
To clear the error, turn power source off, and
back on to reset. See Troubleshooting
Section.
Steady Red
Non recoverable hardware fault. Generally
indicates nothing is connected to the
POWER WAVE F355i (CE) wire feeder
receptacle. See Trouble Shooting Section.

ERROR CODES FOR THE POWER WAVE
The following is a list of possible error codes that the POWER WAVE F355i (CE) can output via the status light
(see "Troubleshooting the Power Wave / Power Feed System Using the Status LED." If connected to a PF-10/11
these error codes will generally be accompanied by an "Err 006" or "Err 100" on the user interface display.
11
12
Error Code #
CAN communication bus off.
User Interface time out error.
Indication
Probably due to excessive number of communication errors.
UI is no longer responding to the Power Source. The most likely
cause is a fault/bad connection in the communication leads or control cable.
21
Unprogrammed Weld Mode.
22
Empty Weld Table.
23
Weld Table checksum error.
31
Primary overcurrent error.
32

Contact the Service Department for instructions on reloading the
Welding Software.
Contact the Service Department for instructions on reloading the
Welding Software.
Contact the Service Department for instructions on reloading the
Welding Software.
Excessive Primary current present. May be related to a short in the
main transformer or output rectifier.
Low voltage on the main capacitors. May be caused by improper
input configuration.
When accompanied by an overvoltage error on the same side, it
indicates no capacitor voltage present on that side, and is usually
the result of an open or short in the primary side of the machine.
Excess voltage on the main capacitors. May be caused by improper input configuration.
35
Capacitor "B" over voltage
When accompanied by an under voltage error on the same side, it
indicates no capacitor voltage present on that side, and is usually
the result of an open or short in the primary side of the machine.
36
Thermal error
Indicates over temperature. Usually accompanied by Thermal LED.
Check fan operation. Be sure process does not exceed duty cycle
limit of the machine.
37
Soft start error
41
Secondary overcurrent error
Capacitor precharge failed. Usually accompanied by codes 32-35.
The secondary (weld) current limit has been exceeded. When this
occurs the machine output will phase back to 100 amps, typically
resulting in a condition referred to as "noodle welding"
NOTE: The secondary limit is 570 amps for the standard stud, and
325 amps for all single phase operation.
43
Other
Capacitor delta error
The maximum voltage difference between the main capacitors has
been exceeded. May be accompanied by errors 32-35.
Error codes that contain three or four digits are defined as fatal
errors. These codes generally indicate internal errors on the
Control Board. If cycling the input power on the machine does not
clear the error, try reloading the operating system. If this fails,
replace the control board.
CAUTION
