ArcReach System Advantages
ArcReach provides remote voltage control at the wire feeder without needing a control cable.
MORE
WELDS
IN LESS
TIME
More arc-on time and reduced exposure to workplace
hazards for operators can be realized using ArcReach
because less time is spent going back to the welding power
supply to set process and arc voltage.
Less operator fatigue by not needing to move or reposition
both heavy secondary weld leads bundled with control cords
on the worksite. Control cables are not used.
Remote override of weld process and arc voltage
enables the operator to have maximum control over the
arc. This prevents setting changes from being made at
the power supply when the feeder and power supply are
in communication.
Operator can precisely set arc voltage at the feeder and
monitor the actual arc voltage and current delivered to the
weld using the digital meters on the feeder. This removes
guess work when it comes to adhering to weld procedures.
Save time by no longer needing to troubleshoot welding
system problems that result from damaged control cords.
Eliminate costly control cord repairs because control
cords are not used.

Tech Talk
ArcReach Technology
ArcReach technology uses the weld cable to communicate welding control information between the feeder and power
source. This technology eliminates the need for control cords, and their associated problems and costs.

Dimension NT 450 ArcReach Features
™
DC multiprocess capability provides versatility
and outstanding arc performance in CV (MIG)
and CC (Stick and TIG).
Ez-Bind™ feature. Easily establishes an exclusive
connection between the power source and the
wire feeder, using only the weld cable. When a
connection is established, other ArcReach wire
feeders are prevented from gaining control of
the power source. The connection is made by
holding the gun trigger two to five seconds prior
to initiating the first weld.
Internal digital voltage control (DVC) enables
operator to preset weld voltage in the CV mode
before striking an arc.
Inductance/Dig control
with pre-settable digital
display to optimize
MIG/Stick performance.
Process selector switch
automatically sets
contactor requirements,
eliminating confusion
caused by several switch
combinations and making
this machine very
“operator-friendly.”
Help codes help
troubleshoot and service
power source. Help
codes are displayed on
the volt/amp meters.
Reduces the time needed
to get the machine back
into service.
Lift-Arc™ allows TIG
starting without the use of
high-frequency. Starts the
arc without contaminating
the weld with tungsten.
Enhanced environmental
protection. All critical
components housed in
protective enclosures.
Fan-On-Demand™ cooling
system operates only
when needed, reducing
noise, energy use and the
amount of contaminants
pulled through machine.
Thermal overload protection helps prevent
machine damage if the duty cycle is exceeded or
airflow is restricted.
Line voltage compensation keeps welding output
constant even if power input varies by ±10%.
Excellent power efficiency for exceptional value
and return on your investment.

115 VAC duplex receptacle provides 15 amps

SuitCase X-TREME VS ArcReach Features
®
Scaled wire pressure knob provides easy adjustment
and consistent pressure on the drive rolls and wire.
Wire drive and motor assembly is specifically
designed for mobile welding applications to provide
smooth and consistent wire delivery. Improved
motor torque and drive roll system are designed
to feed small-diameter solid wire (.023 inch) to
large-diameter cored wire (5/64 inch).
Ultra-low drag inlet guide pins make
loading the wire easy and do not deform
the wire on the way into the drive rolls.
Simply thread the wire through the pins
and into drive rolls.
Digital meters with SunVision™ technology
display voltage and wire speed, and amperage
if desired. Meters can be seen clearly even in
direct sunlight.
Electronic wire feed speed control with
integrated tachometer ensures best-inclass wire feed speed accuracy.
Improved contactor for high-amperage,
high duty cycle applications (8VS: 330 A
at 60%, 12VS: 425 A at 60%).
Wide voltage range for small and large
wires with no contactor chatter and
reduction of arc outages.
Voltage/wirefeed speed control allows adjustment of the welding power source preset when
used in an ArcReach system.
Polypropylene case with built-in slide rails
and the ability to open the door to change wire
with feeder in vertical position.
Double-filtered gas valve helps keep dirt from
clogging and affecting gas flow.
Excellent starts and improved superior
arc performance for all types and sizes of
wires using either CV or CC power supply.
Gun locking tab works with guns having
corresponding locking grooves to prevent gun
from being pulled out if the feeder is dragged
by the gun.
Potted and trayed main printed circuit board
for the harshest environments adds exceptional
reliability. Board has full-trigger isolation so a
shorted gun trigger will not affect feeder operation.
