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.
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.
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 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 input power.
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.

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 compressed 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.

and the device manufacturer before going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating
operations.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can
damage hearing.
D Wear approved ear protection if noise level is
high.
CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.
Compressed gas cylinders contain gas under high
pressure. If damaged, a cylinder can explode. Since
gas cylinders are normally part of the welding
process, be sure to treat them carefully.
D Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs.

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:
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.
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-237 881 Page 4
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.

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 intenses
(ultraviolets et infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlures
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).

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.
6. Ne pas travailler à proximité d’une source de soudage, ni
s’asseoir ou se pencher dessus.
7. Ne pas souder tout en portant la source de soudage ou le
dévidoir.
Les porteurs d’implants doivent d’abord consulter leur médecin avant
de s’approcher des opérations de soudage à l’arc, de soudage par
points, de gougeage, du coupage plasma ou de chauffage par induction. Si le médecin approuve, il est recommandé de suivre les
procédures précédentes.

3-2. Features And Benefits
Auto-Linet Power Management Technology is circuitry that automatically adapts the power source to the primary
voltage being applied (see Sections 4-9 and 4-10).
LVCt Line Voltage Compensation is circuitry that keeps the power source output constant regardless of input power fluctuation.
Wind Tunnel Technologyt circulates air over components that require cooling, not over electronic circuitry, which
reduces contaminants and improves reliability in harsh welding environments.
Fan-On-Demandt cooling system operates only when needed, reducing noise, energy use and the amount of contaminants pulled through the machine.
Thermal Overload Protection automatically shuts down the unit, only when necessary to prevent damage to internal
components if the duty cycle is exceeded or air flow and cooling are restricted (see Section 3-4).
Auto Remote Sense enables the unit to automatically sense the connection of a remote control. Operation of the
remote control is dependent on the Mode Switch Setting (see Section 5-2).
Lift-Arct TIG starts provide a contamination free weld without the use of high frequency in the Lift-Arc TIG Welding
Mode (see Section 6-3).
Synergic Pulsed MIG Operation allows single knob control of the arc. As wirefeed speed is increased or decreased,
the pulse parameters increase or decrease matching the power output to the wire speed (see Section 5-3).
3-3. Arc Controls
DIG control allows the arc characteristics, soft versus stiff, to be changed for specific applications and electrodes in
CC and Stick Welding Modes (see Sections 8-2 and 8-3).
Programmable Hot Start allows the start amperage and time to be changed for CC and Stick Welding Modes (see
Sections 8-2 and 8-3).
Inductance influences the arc stiffness, bead width and appearance, and puddle fluidity in MIG and V-Sense Feeder
Welding Modes (see Sections 7-2 and 7-8).
SharpArct optimizes the size and shape of the arc cone, bead width and appearance, and puddle fluidity in Pulsed
MIG Welding Mode (see Section 7-4).
OM-237 881 Page 11
3-4. Duty Cycle And Overheating
Duty Cycle is percentage of 10 minutes that unit can weld at rated load
without overheating.
If unit overheats, output stops, a Help
message is displayed and cooling fan
runs. Wait fifteen minutes for unit to
cool. Reduce amperage or voltage, or
duty cycle before welding.
. Single Phase Operation: The
unit is supplied with a 8 AWG
power cord. The rated output
with 8 AWG is 300 amps, 32
volts at 40% duty cycle. To
achieve 60% duty cycle change
cord to 6 AWG.
NOTICE − Exceeding duty cycle can
damage unit and void warranty.

4-8. Electrical Service Guide
NOTICE − INCORRECT INPUT POWER can damage this welding power source. Phase to ground voltage shall not exceed +10% of rated input
voltage.
NOTICE − Actual input voltage should not be 10% less than minimum and/or 10% more than maximum input voltages listed in table. If actual input
voltage is outside this range, output may not be be available.
Failure to follow these electrical service guide recommendations could create an electric shock or fire hazard. These recommendations are for a dedicated circuit sized for the rated output and duty cycle of the welding power source.
In dedicated circuit installations, the National Electrical Code (NEC) allows the receptacle or conductor rating to be less than the rating
of the circuit protection device. All components of the circuit must be physically compatible. See NEC articles 210.21, 630.11, and
630.12.

Pulsed MIG Manual/Auto Control
PULS
AUTO
This option sets the PULSED MIG control as manual (PULS
MAN) or Auto (PULS AUTO) operation. When set to manual
operation, the arc length setting on power source and wire
speed setting on wirefeeder need to be adjusted independently to achieve the desired arc length. When set to Auto operation, once arc length is determined it is not necessary to
change the arc length value with changes in wirefeed speed.
The EXTREME 360 MAP and synergic feeders allow single
knob control of the arc. As wirefeed speed is increased or decreased, the pulse parameters increase or decrease matching the power output to the wire speed.
. Auto Operation will only work with synergic wirefeeders.
All other wirefeeders will only operate as manual control.
Even when Auto is displayed, operation will be manual
when any other feeder is connected. See product literature for a list of compatible synergic feeders.

226 611-A
Arc Length - Pulsed MIG Manual Control
(see Section 5-3)
Arc length corresponds to the level of energy needed to burn off the welding electrode.
As wire feed speed increases, a higher arc
length setting is required to burn off the
additional wire. The arc length setting appears in the Left Display when the Arc
Length Indicator is lit. Arc length can be adjusted from 0 to 100.
After the welding output terminals are energized, but prior to arc initiation, the unit displays the letter “R” and a reference wire
speed (IPM) on the Right Display. The reference wire speed can be used as a starting point for the wire speed setting at the
feeder. The wire speed and arc length setting can then be further adjusted to achieve
the desired arc length.
The Configuration Option Menu (see Section 5-1) can be used to change the arc
length setting (0 to 100) to average arc voltage. Average arc voltage can be used as an
alternative method to set the Pulsed MIG
welding arc with the same parameters
(voltage and wire speed) as a conventional
MIG arc. Lower voltage settings correspond to tighter arc lengths while higher
voltage settings correspond to longer arc
lengths. If the voltage mode is selected, the
average voltage preset will be displayed on
the Left Display with the Volts Indicator lit.
Arc Length - Pulsed MIG Auto Control
(see Section 5-3)
In Auto operation the arc length setting is
0-100. The programs have been developed
at 50 arc length setting. Increasing or decreasing the arc length setting from 50 will
change the arc length. It is not necessary to
change the arc length value when changing
wire feed speed settings.

Optional Low Open Circuit Voltage (OCV) Welding Modes
Low OCV Operation
The unit can be optionally configured for low open circuit voltage
(OCV) operation in Stick and
Scratch Start TIG modes. When the
unit is configured for low OCV operation only a low sensing voltage
(approximately 15 VDC) is present
between the electrode and the
workpiece prior to the electrode
touching the workpiece. Consult a
Factory Authorized Service Agent
for information regarding how to
configure the unit for low OCV welding operation.

Items furnished by manufacturer, but manufactured by
others, such as engines or trade accessories. These
items are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, if
any.
Equipment that has been modified by any party other
than manufacturer, or equipment that has been
improperly installed, improperly operated or misused
based upon industry standards, or equipment which
has not had reasonable and necessary maintenance,
or equipment which has been used for operation
outside of the specifications for the equipment.
MANUFACTURER’S PRODUCTS ARE INTENDED FOR
PURCHASE AND USE BY COMMERCIAL/INDUSTRIAL
USERS AND PERSONS TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED IN
THE USE AND MAINTENANCE OF WELDING EQUIPMENT.
In the event of a warranty claim covered by this warranty, the
exclusive remedies shall be, at manufacturer’s option: (1)
repair; or (2) replacement; or, where authorized in writing by
manufacturer in appropriate cases, (3) the reasonable cost of
repair or replacement at an authorized service station; or (4)
payment of or credit for the purchase price (less reasonable
depreciation based upon actual use) upon return of the goods at
customer’s risk and expense. Manufacturer’s option of repair or
replacement will be F.O.B., Factory at Appleton, Wisconsin, or
F.O.B. at an authorized service facility as determined by
manufacturer. Therefore no compensation or reimbursement
for transportation costs of any kind will be allowed.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REMEDIES
PROVIDED HEREIN ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE
REMEDIES. IN NO EVENT SHALL MANUFACTURER BE
LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF
PROFIT), WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR
ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
ANY EXPRESS WARRANTY NOT PROVIDED HEREIN AND
ANY
IMPLIED
WARRANTY,
GUARANTY
OR
REPRESENTATION AS TO PERFORMANCE, AND ANY
REMEDY FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT TORT OR ANY
OTHER LEGAL THEORY WHICH, BUT FOR THIS
PROVISION, MIGHT ARISE BY IMPLICATION, OPERATION
OF LAW, CUSTOM OF TRADE OR COURSE OF DEALING,
INCLUDING
ANY
IMPLIED
WARRANTY
OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR
PURPOSE, WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL EQUIPMENT
FURNISHED BY MANUFACTURER IS EXCLUDED AND
DISCLAIMED BY MANUFACTURER.
Some states in the U.S.A. do not allow limitations of how long an
implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion of incidental, indirect,
special or consequential damages, so the above limitation or
exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty provides specific
legal rights, and other rights may be available, but may vary
from state to state.
In Canada, legislation in some provinces provides for certain
additional warranties or remedies other than as stated herein,
and to the extent that they may not be waived, the limitations and
exclusions set out above may not apply. This Limited Warranty
provides specific legal rights, and other rights may be available,
but may vary from province to province.
