Compact Design!
APPLICATIONS
Get a 500 amp welder in a compact case!
The same size as the Vantage® 300 and
400! A turbo-charged diesel engine with
Lincoln Electric
Chopper Technology®
makes this a reality! Also, less weight than
traditional 500 amp welders makes the
Vantage® 500 compact design a great
choice for installation on truck beds where
available space and weight capacity are
limited.

PERFORMANCE
Arc Performance
• Built-in “hot” start for easier starts and restrikes minimizing the
electrode “sticking” to the work.
• 500 amps @100% duty cycle with output range up to 525 amps using
Chopper Technology®. All ratings are at temperatures of 104°F/40°C.
• Downhill pipe mode with active arc force control ­– enhanced
downhill pipe welding mode. Excellent for cellulosic electrodes.
Fast travel speeds, especially on fill passes. Arc control
adjustment for a soft, buttery arc or a more forceful digging arc.
WHAT IS CHOPPER TECHNOLOGY®?
• Standard DC Touch Start TIG® welding, not scratch start, for easy
arc starting that avoids tungsten contamination and the use of
high-frequency equipment.
WHAT IS TOUCH START TIG®?
Traditional weld control is more
variable around the desired output.
Touch Start TIG® uses a very low voltage to sense when the tip of the
tungsten electrode is touched to the work piece. When this occurs, a
complete circuit is established. When the tungsten is then raised from
the work piece, the circuit senses a change in voltage and initiates
the appropriate welding current and voltage to support the TIG
welding process.
Chopper Technology®
delivers extremely fast response
for tighter output control.
Patented and award-winning Lincoln Electric
Chopper Technology®
delivers superior DC arc welding performance for general purpose stick,
downhill pipe, DC TIG, MIG, cored-wire and arc gouging.
Benefits of
Chopper Technology® include:
- Easy arc starting
- Smooth arc action
- Low spatter levels
- Excellent bead appearance
Enjoy the added benefits of Lincoln Electric’s Touch Start TIG®
when DC TIG welding. Not only do you avoid tungsten contamination when arc starting, but you also don’t need extra
high frequency equipment.
• Excellent CV wire welding with cored-wire and MIG (CO2 and
mixed gas).
Generator Performance
• VRD™ (Voltage Reduction Device™) reduced OCV (open circuit voltage) in
CC-stick welding mode for added safety.
WHAT IS VRD™?
The VRD™ provides additional safety in the CC-stick weld mode,especially
when working in an environment with a higher risk of electrical shock such
as wet areas and hot, humid, sweaty conditions. The VRD™ reduces the OCV
at the welding output terminals while not welding to less than 30 volts DC.
The VRD™ is activated by flipping a toggle switch inside the machine to the
“ON” position. Indicator lights monitor the voltage: green for less than 30
volts while not welding, and either red (greater than 30 volts) or green while
welding, depending on the actual voltage of the arc.
Other weld modes when VRD™ is on:
Downhill Pipe – There is no output.
CV-Wire
– OCV is not reduced.
Touch Start TIG® – No difference in
operation. TIG is
normally a low
voltage (less than
30 volts) operation.
• 3-phase 240V AC generator power rated at 22 kW peak (20 kW
continuous) output to power industrial equipment such as a plasma
cutter, pump or inverter welder. Simultaneously weld and use 3-phase
AC power – for example, up to 12,000 watts can be delivered while
welding at 250 amps. Compare to competitive product which has
3-phase power available as an extra cost factory-only option.
• 3-phase 240V receptacle on control panel eliminates the need to
hard-wire the connections. Compare to competitive product
which usually requires hard-wired connections.
• The Vantage® 500 provides added value at the job site by delivering
up to 13 kW peak (12 kW continuous) watts of 1-phase AC auxiliary
power for equipment such as a Lincoln Electric plasma cutter. Also use
for lights, grinders and other common construction tools. And, you can
simultaneously weld and have access to AC power – 12,000 watts can
be delivered while welding at 250 amps. Compare this to competitive
product which has high output 1-phase AC power available as an
extra cost factory option.
• AC generator voltage is constant at 120V or 240V at any weld
dial setting.
VRD™ portion of nameplate
with green light on.
• Two 120V GFCI modules sealed from moisture for more reliable
operation.
• All receptacles are circuit breaker protected. Each receptacle has a
spring-loaded weather protective cover which keeps each receptacle
protected from the environment when not in use.
• CC-stick mode is optimized for general purpose stick using E7018
low hydrogen electrode.

QUALITY AND RELIABILITY
• Simple wire harnessing keeps connections to a minimum for
greater reliability. Lead and harness strain reliefs on all control
connections help ensure trouble-free performance.
• Printed circuit boards are environmentally-shielded using
Lincoln Electric’s engineered potting and protective frame trays.
• Engine protection system includes automatic shutdown for low
oil pressure or high engine temperature.
• Indicator light turns on for low oil pressure or high engine
temperature. A second indicator light turns on if the engine
battery charging system malfunctions.
• Dependability and long life aided by all-copper windings in
rotor and stator with high quality insulation.
• Circuit breaker protection on the battery ignition system
provides added component protection.
• Standard stainless steel roof, side panels and engine-access door
deliver added protection, durability and corrosion-resistance.
Eliminates the need to paint or replace rusting panels.
