From Miller to You
Thank you and congratulations on choosing Miller. Now you can get
the job done and get it done right. We know you don’t have time to do
it any other way.
That’s why when Niels Miller first started building arc welders in 1929,
he made sure his products offered long-lasting value and superior
quality. Like you, his customers couldn’t afford anything less. Miller
products had to be more than the best they could be. They had to be the
best you could buy.
Today, the people that build and sell Miller products continue the
tradition. They’re just as committed to providing equipment and service
that meets the high standards of quality and value established in 1929.
This Owner’s Manual is designed to help you get the most out of your
Miller products. Please take time to read the Safety precautions. They
will help you protect yourself against potential hazards on the worksite.
We’ve made installation and operation quick
and easy. With Miller you can count on years
of reliable service with proper maintenance.
And if for some reason the unit needs repair,
there’s a Troubleshooting section that will
help you figure out what the problem is. The

1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
The symbols shown below are used throughout this manual
to call attention to and identify possible hazards. When you
see the symbol, watch out, and follow the related instructions
to avoid the hazard. The safety information given below is
only a summary of the more complete safety information
found in the Safety Standards listed in Section 1-5. Read and
follow all Safety Standards.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and
repair this unit.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal shocks
or severe burns. The electrode and work circuit is
electrically live whenever the output is on. The input
power circuit and machine internal circuits are also
live when power is on. In semiautomatic or automatic
wire welding, the wire, wire reel, drive roll housing,
and all metal parts touching the welding wire are
electrically live. Incorrectly installed or improperly
grounded equipment is a hazard.
D Do not touch live electrical parts.
D Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
D Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats
or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work
or ground.
D Do not use AC output in damp areas, if movement is confined, or if
there is a danger of falling.
D Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
D If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on
unit.
D Additional safety precautions are required when any of the following electrically hazardous conditions are present: 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; or when there is a high risk of unavoidable or accidental contact with the workpiece or ground. For these
conditions, use the following equipment in order presented: 1) a
semiautomatic DC constant voltage (wire) welder, 2) a DC manual
(stick) welder, or 3) an AC welder with reduced open-circuit voltage. In most situations, use of a DC, constant voltage wire welder
is recommended. And, do not work alone!
D Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or
servicing this equipment. Lockout/tagout input power according to
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 (see Safety Standards).
D Properly install and ground this equipment according to its
Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
D Always verify the supply ground − check and be sure that input
power cord ground wire is properly connected to ground terminal in
disconnect box or that cord plug is connected to a properly
grounded receptacle outlet.
D When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first − double-check connections.
D Keep cords dry, free of oil and grease, and protected from hot metal
and sparks.
D Frequently inspect input power cord for damage or bare wiring −
replace cord immediately if damaged − bare wiring can kill.
D Turn off all equipment when not in use.
D Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
D Do not drape cables over your body.
D If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly
with a separate cable.
D Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground,
or another electrode from a different machine.
D Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be
present.
D Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged
parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.
D Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
D Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
D Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece
or worktable as near the weld as practical.
D Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent
contact with any metal object.
D Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any
single weld output terminal.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter welding power sources AFTER removal of inputpower.
D Turn Off inverter, disconnect input power, and discharge input
capacitors according to instructions in Maintenance Section
before touching any parts.
HOT PARTS can burn.
D Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
D Allow cooling period before working on equipment.
D To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or
wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and
clothing to prevent burns.
OM-223 528 Page 1
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing
these fumes and gases can be hazardous to your
health.
D Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
D If inside, ventilate the area and/or use local forced ventilation at the
arc to remove welding fumes and gases.
D If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
D Read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
and the manufacturer’s instructions for metals, consumables,
coatings, cleaners, and degreasers.
D Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while
wearing an air-supplied respirator. Always have a trained watchperson nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and
lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.
D Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can react with vapors to form
highly toxic and irritating gases.
D Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or
cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is removed from the weld
area, the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an air-supplied
respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements
can give off toxic fumes if welded.
D Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
D Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy
shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
D Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches,
from your person before doing any welding.
D After completion of work, inspect area to ensure it is free of sparks,
glowing embers, and flames.
D Use only correct fuses or circuit breakers. Do not oversize or bypass them.
D Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B
for hot work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
FLYING METAL or DIRT can injure eyes.
D Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding
cause sparks and flying metal. As welds cool,
they can throw off slag.
D Wear approved safety glasses with side
shields even under your welding helmet.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
D Shut off shielding gas supply when not in use.
D Always ventilate confined spaces or use
approved air-supplied respirator.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense
visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays
that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the
weld.
D Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of
filter lenses to protect your face and eyes from arc rays and
sparks when welding or watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1
listed in Safety Standards).
D Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your
helmet.
D Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash,
glare and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
D Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant
material (leather, heavy cotton, or wool) and foot protection.
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
Welding on closed containers, such as tanks,
drums, or pipes, can cause them to blow up. Sparks
can fly off from the welding arc. The flying sparks, hot
workpiece, and hot equipment can cause fires and
burns. Accidental contact of electrode to metal objects can cause
sparks, explosion, overheating, or fire. Check and be sure the area is
safe before doing any welding.
D Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If
this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
D Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
D Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
D Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can
easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
D Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
D Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can
cause fire on the hidden side.
D Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes,
unless they are properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 (see
Safety Standards).
D Do not weld where the atmosphere may contain flammable dust,
gas, or liquid vapors (such as gasoline).
D Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding area as
practical to prevent welding current from traveling long, possibly
unknown paths and causing electric shock, sparks, and fire
hazards.
D Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.

1-6. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). Welding current creates an EMF field
around the welding circuit and welding equipment. EMF fields may interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective
measures for persons wearing medical implants have to be taken. For
example, access restrictions for passers−by or individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the following procedures in
order to minimize exposure to EMF fields from the welding circuit:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them, or using a
cable cover.
2. Do not place your body between welding cables. Arrange cables
to one side and away from the operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cables around your body.
OM-223 528 Page 4
4. Keep head and trunk as far away from the equipment in the
welding circuit as possible.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as
possible.
6. Do not work next to, sit or lean on the welding power source.
7. Do not weld whilst carrying the welding power source or wire
feeder.
About Implanted Medical Devices:
Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor and the
device manufacturer before performing or going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating operations.
If cleared by your doctor, then following the above procedures is recommended.

LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un
incendie ou une explosion.
Le soudage effectué sur des conteneurs fermés tels
que des réservoirs, tambours ou des conduites peut
provoquer leur éclatement. Des étincelles peuvent
être projetées de l’arc de soudure. La projection d’étincelles, des
pièces chaudes et des équipements chauds peut provoquer des
incendies et des brûlures. Le contact accidentel de l’électrode avec
des objets métalliques peut provoquer des étincelles, une explosion,
un surchauffement ou un incendie. Avant de commencer le soudage,
vérifier et s’assurer que l’endroit ne présente pas de danger.
D Déplacer toutes les substances inflammables à une distance de
10,7 m de l’arc de soudage. En cas d’impossibilité les recouvrir
soigneusement avec des protections homologués.
D Ne pas souder dans un endroit là où des étincelles peuvent tomber
sur des substances inflammables.
LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent
être dangereux.
D Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et
de métal chaud.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur
inhalation peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
D Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent
facilement passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites
fissures et des ouvertures.
D Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
D Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à
proximité.
D À l’intérieur, ventiler la zone et/ou utiliser une ventilation forcée au
niveau de l’arc pour l’évacuation des fumées et des gaz de
soudage.
D Le soudage effectué sur un plafond, plancher, paroi ou séparation
peut déclencher un incendie de l’autre côté.
D Si la ventilation est médiocre, porter un respirateur anti-vapeurs
approuvé.
D Lire et comprendre les spécifications de sécurité des matériaux
(MSDS) et les instructions du fabricant concernant les métaux, les
consommables, les revêtements, les nettoyants et les dégraisseurs.
D Travailler dans un espace fermé seulement s’il est bien ventilé ou
en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Demander toujours à
un surveillant dûment formé de se tenir à proximité. Des fumées et
des gaz de soudage peuvent déplacer l’air et abaisser le niveau
d’oxygène provoquant des blessures ou des accidents mortels.
S’assurer que l’air de respiration ne présente aucun danger.
D Ne pas souder dans des endroits situés à proximité d’opérations
de dégraissage, de nettoyage ou de pulvérisation. La chaleur et
les rayons de l’arc peuvent réagir en présence de vapeurs et former des gaz hautement toxiques et irritants.
D Ne pas souder des métaux munis d’un revêtement, tels que l’acier
galvanisé, plaqué en plomb ou au cadmium à moins que le revêtement n’ait été enlevé dans la zone de soudure, que l’endroit soit
bien ventilé, et en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Les
revêtements et tous les métaux renfermant ces éléments peuvent
dégager des fumées toxiques en cas de soudage.
LES RAYONS DE L’ARC peuvent
provoquer des brûlures dans les
yeux et sur la peau.
Le rayonnement de l’arc du procédé de soudage
génère des rayons visibles et invisibles intense
(ultraviolets et infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlure
dans les yeux et sur la peau. Des étincelles sont projetées pendant le
soudage.
D Porter un casque de soudage approuvé muni de verres filtrants
approprié pour protéger visage et yeux pour protéger votre visage
et vos yeux pendant le soudage ou pour regarder (voir ANSI Z49.1
et Z87.1 énuméré dans les normes de sécurité).

2-6. Informations relatives aux CEM
Le courant électrique qui traverse tout conducteur génère des champs
électromagnétiques (CEM) à certains endroits. Le courant de soudage
crée un CEM autour du circuit et du matériel de soudage. Les CEM
peuvent créer des interférences avec certains implants médicaux
comme des stimulateurs cardiaques. Des mesures de protection pour
les porteurs d’implants médicaux doivent être prises: par exemple, des
restrictions d’accès pour les passants ou une évaluation individuelle
des risques pour les soudeurs. Tous les soudeurs doivent appliquer les
procédures suivantes pour minimiser l’exposition aux CEM provenant
du circuit de soudage:
4. Maintenir la tête et le torse aussi loin que possible du matériel du
circuit de soudage.
1. Rassembler les câbles en les torsadant ou en les attachant avec
du ruban adhésif ou avec une housse.
2. Ne pas se tenir au milieu des câbles de soudage. Disposer les
câbles d’un côté et à distance de l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas courber et ne pas entourer les câbles autour de votre
corps.
En ce qui concerne les implants médicaux :
5. Connecter la pince sur la pièce aussi près que possible de la
soudure.

SECTION 5 − OPERATION
5-1.
Operational Terms
The following is a list of terms and their definitions as they apply to the interface unit in the wire feeder:
General Terms:
Adaptive Pulse Welding
When the “adaptive pulse” welding process is selected, the unit will attempt to automatically regulate
weld output in order to maintain a constant arc length, regardless of change in welding wire stickout.
Abk (Background Amperage)
Abk is the low weld current. Background current preheats welding wire and maintains the arc. When
background current is too low, the arc is unstable and hard to maintain.
Apk (Peak Amperage)
Apk is the high pulse of welding current. Peak current melts the welding wire and forms a droplet. The
droplet is forced into the weld puddle.
Vpk (Peak Voltage)
Arc voltage during peak current phase of the pulse waveform. This determines arc length during
adaptive pulse welding.
Inductance
In short circuit GMAW welding, an increase in inductance will decrease the number of short circuit
metal transfers per second (provided no other changes are made) and increase the arc-on time. The
increased arc-on time makes the pool more fluid.
PPS (Pulses Per Second)
PPS, pulse rate, and frequency (Hz) are used interchangeably. A PPS or pulse rate of 60 Hz means
60 pulses of current are produced each second.
PWms (Pulse Width in Milliseconds)
PWms is the time spent at peak current (1.2 ms is .0012 seconds). This time must be long enough to
form a droplet of welding wire. The stiffness or fluidity of the molten weld puddle is controlled by
PWms.
Synergic
Synergic refers to the unit’s ability to use preprogrammed pulse parameters to determine the actual
pulse settings of Peak Amperage, Background Amperage, Pulse Frequency and Pulse Width at any
specific wire feed speed setting.
Arc Adjust
Term used to represent arc length adjustments in pulse programs. Increasing Arc Adjust increases
the actual arc length. Likewise, decreasing arc adjust shortens arc length. Arc Adjust is replaced by
volts in MIG programs.
Program
Eight active slots for selection of various processes, wire type, and parameters.
Process
A selection made for MIG, Pulse, Accu-pulse, and RMD (optional).
MIG
CV weld process with individual settings of voltage and wire speed.
Pulse
Conventional pulse program using peak, background, pulse width, frequency, and peak voltage as
factory taught data. Adaptive method is controlled by frequency adjustment.
Accu-pulse
Pulse process utilizing constant current ramps with constant voltage control of peaks and backgrounds. Adaptive response is controlled by peak and minimum current levels. Benefits are shorter
arc lengths, better puddle control, more tolerant of tip-to-work variation, less audible noise, no arc
wandering, allows weld to fill in at toes increasing travel speed and deposition, and more tolerant to
poor fit up and gaps.
Accuspeed (Optional)
CV Pulse process designed for high travel speeds. Typically used in Robotic applications. Arc is
designed to be tight and fast. Front panel display is ACCU − SPED.
AccuCurve
CV Pulse process using a pulse waveform with modified curves at particular locations within the
waveform. Has a distinguished change in arc characteristics. Front panel display is ACCU − CURV.
RMD (optional)
RMD refers to Regulated Metal Deposition. A precisely controlled short-circuit transfer. Benefits of
RMD are well suited to thin materials, improves gap filling and spatter reduction. Provides less heat
input into workpiece, minimizes distortion and allows use of larger diameter wire on thin gauge
materials.
Wire Type
Selection of wire type by alloys and classification.
Gase Type
Selection of shielding gas being used in application.
Process Set Up
Selection procedure for entering program.
Program Load
Enters selected program information into program slot.
Volts
Preset voltage in MIG mode at idle, actual voltage while welding, and 3 seconds hold value at end of
weld.
Time
Indicates time values being set for timed functions (e.g. Preflow, Postflow which are only available in
the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes).
Arc Length
Distance from end of wire electrode to workpiece.
WFS
Term used to represent wire feed speed. In MIG mode, wire feed setting is independent of voltage
setting. In pulse, Accu-pulse, and RMD (optional) adjusting wire feed speed also increases power
level on wire electrode (one knob control).
Amps
Indicates average amperage while welding and 3 seconds hold value at end of weld.
OM-223 528 Page 18
General Terms:
Arc Control
Pressing this button will allow setting of inductance in MIG mode and arc control in pulse, Accu-pulse,
and RMD (optional). In pulse and Accu-pulse mode this adjustment changes the arc cone by
adjusting the preprogrammed factory pulse data. In RMD (optional) this control will affect the arc in
much the same way as inductance.
Inductance
In short circuit GMAW welding, an increase in inductance will decrease the number of short circuit
transfers per second (provided no other changes are made) and increase the arc-on time. The
increased arc-on time makes the welding puddle more fluid.
Adjust
Control knob used to change or set parameters and functions.
Sequence
Selecting Sequence will allow setting of preflow, start, crater, and postflow times and parameters (only
available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input
modes).
Preflow
Setting a time value for gas flow prior to arc start (only available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On
and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the optional
PDA with File Management software).
Start
Provides voltage/arc adjust, wire feed rate, and time value for modified arc starts (only available on
Auto Axcess models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and
can only be set with the optional PDA with File Management software).
Weld
Sequence function that allows for a timed weld operation [(0 to 999 seconds) only available on Auto
Axcess models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can
only be set with the optional PDA with File Management software].
Crater
Allows setting of voltage/arc adjust, wire feed rate, and time value for arc ends (only available on Auto
Axcess models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can
only be set with the optional PDA with File Management software).
Postflow
Setting a time value for gas flow after arc end (only available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On
and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the optional
PDA with File Management software).
Retract
Sequence function that allows the wire to move back towards the contact tip when a welding operation is completed. Setting is both speed (IPM) and time (sec), (only available on Auto Axcess models
in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with
the optional PDA with File Management software).
Feeder Set Up
Allow selection of Sequence functions.
Auto Thread
Method of jogging wire without holding jog or trigger switch. Pressing Jog and Retract simultaneously
will automatically feed wire. Default setting is 192 at a feed rate of 700 ipm (these values can be
changed using a PDA with File Management software). Pressing jog, purge, or trigger switch will
terminate the auto-threading feature.
Output A Relay and
Output B Relay
Normally open, programmable output relays that allow the user to select when these relays turn on or
off during a weld sequence.
Arc Established Relay
Normally open relay that energizes when an arc is established.
Error Output Relay
Normally open relay that energizes when an error condition occurs.
Contactor Input
When this is input is shorted to input common, machine output turns on. When this input is open,
machine output is off.
Remote Program Select A,
These inputs provide remote control of weld program selection when these inputs are shorted to input
common. The remote program selection feature is on by default, to turn this feature off see Section

starting an arc, the wire will feed at run-in
speed for the first 3 seconds. During this
time OCV (open circuit voltage) will be
present as indicated on feeder upper
display. After 3 seconds the weld output
turns off and the wire will feed at 50 ipm for
the next 3 seconds and then ramps up to
700 ipm until trigger is released or 30
seconds elapses. If the gun trigger is still
activated after 30 seconds, the jog
operation is terminated to prevent complete
unspooling of the wire and an “ERR STRT”
message is displayed on the upper and
lower displays. Releasing and pressing the
trigger again will clear the error.
• Pressing right side of the Jog/Purge switch
allows the operator to purge gas lines before
welding and to preset gas pressure at the
regulator.
• This unit is equipped with Auto Thread
capability. By rocking the switch from purge
to jog within 0.5 seconds will automatically
feed wire for a factory default setting of 192
in (4877 mm) of wire before stopping. The
default feed rate is 700 ipm. These settings
can be changed using an optional PDA with
File Management software.

ERR TACH
ERR STOP
• The tach error occurs 2 seconds after the
loss of tachometer feedback. The motor
speed is regulated through the monitoring of
tach feedback pulses. Press Jog/Purge
button to clear error.
• The stop error occurs as result of
obstructions in the wire feed system or a
faulty wire drive system. Check wire feed
and wire drive systems. Press Jog/Purge
button to clear error.
ERR MOTR
ERR FLOW
• The motor error indicates that the motor
has been drawing too much current for too
long. To remedy this, reduce the wire feed
speed or the wire feeder torque load/duty
cycle. Press Jog/Purge button to clear error.
• The flow error indicates no gas flow to the
gun. The error may be reset by
reestablishing gas flow to the gun, and then
pressing the Jog/Purge button.
ERR WFS
ERR COOL
• The wire feed speed error indicates actual
wire feed speed does not match wire feed
speed command. Press Jog/Purge button
to clear error.
• The cool error indicates no coolant flow in
water flow switch option. The error may be
reset by reestablishing coolant flow to the
gun, and then pressing the Jog/Purge
button.
ERR STRT
• The start error occurs if the user has the
trigger held for more than 3 seconds without
striking an arc, or if a valid arc voltage and
current is not detected. The 3 second arc
start error time can be changed using an
optional PDA with File Management
software.
ERR GND
• The ground current error occurs if weld
current is detected in the earth ground
connection. May be caused by a conductor
making contact with unit chassis. Check
and repair feeder weld connections. Turn
power off and back on to clear error.
ERR STUK
• The stuck error occurs if the welding wire
sticks to the workpiece at the end of a weld.
May be caused by poor weld conditions.
The error may be cleared by cutting wire
from workpiece, and pressing the Jog/
Purge button.
ERR TEMP
• The temperature error indicates welding
power source has overheated and
shutdown. The error may be cleared by
allowing unit to cool down, and pressing the
Jog/Purge button. If problem persists,
check fan motors and thermistors for proper
operation.
ERR LINE
• The line error indicates input power is
outside of unit operating range. Check and
correct input power. Press Jog/Purge
button to clear error.
ERR ARC
• The arc error indicates an arc outage
occurred possibly from an obstruction at the
wire feeder or an arc outage greater than 0.5
seconds. Check wire feeder, gun and liner
for any obstructions. Press Jog/Purge
button to clear error.

OM-223 528 Page 30
OVER AVG
• The over average error indicates that
current is outside the average range for the
set program parameters. Check and correct
program parameters. Press Jog/Purge
button to clear error.
REL TRIG
• The release trigger error indicates the
user held the gun trigger after an E stop was
reset causing the contactor to remain on.
Press Jog/Purge button to clear error.
TRIG STUK
• The trigger stuck error indicates the user
held the gun trigger during power up.
Release trigger and turn power off and back
on.
OVER CRNT
• The over current error indicates welding
power source primary current of the inverter
is too high. Turn welding power source off
and disconnect unit for servicing.
Attempting to reset the display to
continue welding may further damage
internal components. A complete
prepower check of the unit is needed
including resistance measurements of R1
and R8 resistors on welding power source
Interconnect board. Resistors should
measure 30K ohms. Visually inspect
electrolytic capacitors C1 and C2 for any
possible damage. In the event of an over
voltage condition, R1 and R8 could open
potentially causing an imbalance in the
power circuit. This condition would create
excessive current in the inverter primary
transformer and result in the OVER CRNT
error.
