2. ARC WELDING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (continued)
WELDING can cause fire and explosion.
Sparks and spatter fly off from the welding arc. The flying sparks and hot metal, spatter, hot
base metal, and hot equipment can cause fire and explosion. Accidental contact of electrode or
welding wire to metal object can cause sparks, overheating, or fire.
1. Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metals.
2. Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
3. Remove all flammables within 10m (33ft) of the welding arc. If this is not possible, tightly,
cover them with approved covers.
4. Be alert that welding sparks and hot metals from welding can easily pass through cracks
and openings into adjacent areas.
5. Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
6. Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can ignite a hidden fire.
7. Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks or drums.
8. Connect base metal side cable as close to the welding area as possible to prevent the
welding current from traveling along unknown paths and causing electric shock and fire
hazards.
9. Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at contact tip when not in use.
10. Does not use the welding power source for other than arc welding.
11. Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, a heavy shirt, cuffless trousers,
boots, and a cap.
12. A loose cable connection can cause sparks and excessive heating.
13. Tighten all cable connections.
14. When there is an electrical connection between a work piece and the frame of wire feeder or
the wire reel stand, are may be generated and cause damage by a fire if the wire contacts
the frame or the work piece.
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous to your health.
Arc welding produce fumes and gases. Breathing these fumes and gases can be hazardous to
your health.
1. Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
2. Ventilate the area and/or use exhaust at the arc to remove welding fumes and gases.
3. If ventilation is poor, use an approved air-supplied respirator.
4. Read the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and the manufacturer’s instructions on
metals, consumables, coatings, and cleaners.
5. Do not weld or cut 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.

6.2 Precautions for Use of the Engine Generator
CAUTION
● Use the auxiliary power of engine welder whose voltage waveform has been improved. Some
of the engine welders have poor electricity, which may cause product damage. Contact an
engine welder manufacturer for improvement of waveform.
To prevent the engine generator or auxiliary power from being damaged, follow the instructions
below.
•
•
•
Set the output voltage of the engine generator to the voltage range between 230 and 240V at
no-load welding operation. Setting to extremely high output voltage may result in product damage.
Use the engine generator with a damper winding of which capacity is more than twice as much as
the rated input of the welding machine. Generally, the recovery time of the engine generator’s
voltage for load change is slower than that of the commercial input power source, and if the engine
generator does not have sufficient capacity, sudden current change such as arc start will occur.
This may result in abnormal decrease in output current or arc loss. Ask an engine generator
manufacturer for a damper winding.
Do not combine more than two welding machines with an engine generator. The affect of each
welding machine may cause easy loss of arc.

9.2 Operating the Switches and Controlling the Pressure regulators for gas cylinders
CAUTION
● Keep your face away from the outlet when turning on gas at the main of the gas cylinder, as
burst of high-pressure gas may result in physical injuries.
NOTE: Gas checking automatically stops in two minutes.
① Turn on the line disconnect
switch.
④ Set the pressure regulators for gas
cylinders to “SHUT” , then turn on gas at
⑤ Set the gas flow rate adjusting knob
to “OPEN” to adjust the gas flow rate.
③
Press the GAS CHECK
key. (The GAS CHECK
lamp lights up.)
② Place the power switch in the “I” (ON)
position.
⑥ Press the GAS CHECK
button again. (The GAS
CHECK lamp goes out.)
9.3 Inching Operation
WARNING
● Do not look into the tip hole to check for the rate of wire feeding while inching.
CAUTION
● Keep away your hands, fingers, hair or clothes from the rotating parts of the feed
roll, etc. to prevent you from being caught into the rotating parts while inching.
After straightening the welding torch, feed the wire while pressing the
inching button. (“INCHING” lamp lights up). When the wire appears
from the end of the torch, release the INCHING key. Cut the wire at
about 10 mm from the end of the torch. When adjusting wire feed rate,
use the parameter adjusting knob. Inching operation can be controlled
by using the INCHING button on the analog remote control (optional
accessory). When controlling inching operation with the remote control,
the INCHING key on the front panel does not function.

10. OPERATION (continued)
CAUTION
● This welding machine should be operated by persons only after reading and
understanding contents of this owner’s manual and having knowledge and skills for
handling the welding machine safely.
● Use this welding power source at or under the rated duty cycle. Exceeding the rated duty
cycle limitation may result in damage to the welding machine.
When reading the operating instructions described below, unfold Page 76 so that you can read them
confirming the location of the keys on the front panel.
10.1 Basic Settings
10.1.1 Setting of Welding Mode
Choose the welding mode using the WELDING METHOD key [1], the WIRE/GAS selector
keys [2], the WIRE DIA (inch) key [3] the in accord with the welding method and wire diameter
used. The selectable welding modes are shown on the next page.
When setting the welding mode, select the welding method using the WELDING METHOD
key [1] first. Once the welding method is set, the available wire diameters are automatically
decided according to the welding method. Then, select wire/gas using the WIRE/GAS
selector keys [2]. Finally, set the wire diameter with the WIRE DIA (inch) key [3].
For example, for DP-400, when selecting “WAVE PULSE” while setting "DC HARD SOLID
CO2 φ0.035in [1.0mm] " with the WELDING METHOD key [1], the "MILD STEEL SOLID CO2"
lamp blinks, which means the preset combination is incorrect. In that case, select material
and gas again using the WIRE/GAS selector keys [2] or reset the welding method using the
WELDING METHOD key [1]. Selecting the proper combination of material and gas can
cancel the error and activate the welding power source.
Wrong combination of welding mode and wire diameter will cause “---”and “---“ in the displays
to blink, the LED lamps to light, and the welding power source to stop.
The following table shows the selections of wire diameter for setting current at aluminum
welding. Refer to the table for selecting a wire.

CONSTANT PENETRATION Function
For conventional CO2/MAG welding, as the wire extension changes, welding current
changes and base metal penetration depth and bead width change. By setting the
constant penetration function to “ON”, wire feed speed is automatically adjusted so that
constant current can be always obtained even when wire extension varies. As a result,
effects of reducing change in penetration depth and in bead width of the base metal are
able to be obtained. When penetration depth is particularly held constant, set the
CONSTANT PENETRATION function to “ON” using the CONSTANT PENETRATION key
[15].
Penetration control ON/OFF selection can be done by using the CONSTANT
PENETRATION key [15]. When setting the CONSTANT PENETRATION function to ON,
the CONSTANT PENETRATION lamp (located at the upper left of the CONSTANT
PENETRATION key) lights up. When setting the CONSTANT PENETRATION function to
OFF, the CONSTANT PENETRATION lamp goes out. Set the CONSTANT
PENETRATION function to ON to hold constant penetration depth by using the
CONSTANT PENETRATION key [15]. The CONSTANT PENETRATION function is
activated only during the INITIAL and MAIN welding times. It does not function during the
CRATER time.
NOTE: The CONSTANT PENETRATION function is not available in the combination
of the following welding conditions, and the CONSTANT PENETRATION function is
automatically set to “OFF”.
• SPOT TIME “ON” setting
• Selection of AL/PURE (SOFT) or AL/MG (HARD).
10.1.7 Arc Characteristics Function
When pressing the ARC CONTROL key [9] while the INITIAL CONDITION, MAIN
CONDITION, or CRATER-FILL CONDITION is selected the ARC CONTROL lamp (located
at the upper left of the ARC CONTROL key [9]) lights up, the setting value is displayed in the
right display, and the V/± lamp lights up. At that condition, it is possible to set arc
characteristics by using the parameter adjusting knob [6]. The setting range is 0 to ±10.
Pressing the ARC CONTROL key [9] again or pressing the DISPLAY CHANGE key [8]
returns to the previous parameter setting. In addition, it is also possible to change over the
display to a current-related parameter by using the A/m/min selector key [3] and to a voltagerelated parameter by using the V/± selector key [4].
The standard setting value of arc characteristic is 0. As the setting value of the arc
characteristic is set in the negative direction (up to -10), arc condition becomes harder. As
the setting value of the arc characteristic is set in the positive direction, arc condition
becomes softer (up to 10). When you use the welding power source in the low current range,
set the setting value of the arc characteristic in the positive direction to obtain good welding
results. When you use the welding machine in the high current range, set the setting value of
the arc characteristic in the positive direction to obtain good welding results. If you can not
obtain optimum arc condition due to use of the extension cables, set the setting value of the
arc characteristic in the negative direction.

WAVE PULSE Function (optional)
In wave pulse welding, the ripple bead appearance is changed by applying two separate
pulses cyclically at low frequency. This feature will also assist in welding joints that have
some poor fit up or gaps. Although, the wave mode is usually most applicable for fully
automatic welding, benefits are also achieved even in semi-automatic applications. Good
bead appearances are obtained by setting the wave frequency to 5Hz or more even for
semi-automatic.
When setting wave pulse frequency, select “DC WAVE PULSE” with the WELDING
METHOD key [1]. Normally, the WELDING METHOD key does not function during pulse
welding or no-pulse welding. When the WAVE PULSE key is pressed while “INITIAL
CONDITION”/ “MAIN CONDITION”/ “CRATER-FILL. CONDITION” is selected, the WAVE
PULSE lamp (located at the upper left of the WAVE PULSE key) lights up, the setting value
appears in the left display, the “Hz” LED lamp lights up. Under these conditions, wave pulse
frequency can be adjusted while turning the parameter adjusting knob. The setting range of
wave pulse frequency is 0.5 Hz to 32 Hz. Adjust wave pulse frequency until you can obtain
the desired bead appearance.
When pressing the WAVE PULSE key or DISPLAY CHANGE key again, return to the last
parameter that you have set. When changing the display to a current-related parameter,
press the A/m/min selector key [4]. When changing the display to a volt-related parameter,
press the V/± selector key [5].

10.1.12 Verifying the Parameters in the Displays
The displays on the front panel provides the following functions:
1. Display of Parameter Setting Value
When setting to “parameter setting values display” mode during down period (excluding
the result display period right after the completion of welding) and during welding, values
of parameters under adjustment are displayed.
2. Display of Output Current During Welding
The parameters shown in the displays automatically change to average values of output
current and output voltage according to the output conditions every about 0.5 second.
The display accuracy is Class 2.5 or equivalent and is the same as that of a general
needle type meter. When you want to change the parameters during welding, switch to
the “parameter setting values display” mode by using the DISPLAY CHANGE key [8].
When no welding operation is not carried out for about 5 seconds or the DISPLAY
CHANGE key [8] is held down, the display mode automatically returns to the “average
parameter setting values display” mode. When the TORCH key is pressed, the LED
lamps of the sequence parameters go on sequentially according to the welding
operations. When the display setting is switched to the "parameter setting values
display" mode, each LED lamps (located at the sequence parameter setting section) of
the sequence that is currently outputting begin blinking. Refer to Section 10.1.13, “Using
the Parameter Adjusting Knob” for the parameters that can be adjusted using the
parameter adjusting knob [6] during welding.
3. Display of Welding Results after Completion of Welding
Upon completion of welding, the average output current and voltage for last one second
blink for about 20 seconds (however, the output conditions of crater fill are ignored).
Therefore, the operators can verify the welding conditions right after the completion of
welding and can use them as approximates when adjusting the welding conditions. This
display is cancelled by starting the next welding or by pressing any key on the front
panel without waiting 20 seconds after the completion of welding. The result display
time can be preset to F8 by using the F key [12]. The setting value is displayed in the
left digital and the "sec" lamp lights up. The setting range of the result display time is 5
seconds to 60 seconds.
NOTE: In the case where the less than one-second welding such as tack welding,
etc. is performed, the correct results of the welding are not displayed.
4. Display of Error Message
If an error is detected in the power source of electric welding, an error number indicating
error messages blinks. See Section 11.1, "Troubleshooting".
NOTE: The average output values shown in the displays are processed by
software and are not guaranteed as control data of measuring instruments.

(9) Selection of Scale Plate of Analog Remote Control: F9
When the analog remote control (optional accessory) is used, it is possible to
finely adjust a low-current region where a small-diameter wire is used for weld
by replacing the full-scale 350A scale plate with the full-scale 200A scale plate
(supplied). The analog remote control scale plate is changed over by using the
F selector key [12]. Set to "200" by using F9.
(10) Setting of Feed Motor Load Current Error Detection Level: F10
In the event that contact resistance is applied to the wire feed line section due
to worn liners, defective tips, etc., the current supplied to the motor increases
(when feed roll lacks smooth movement). Monitoring current of this motor can
detect defective feed. The motor load current detection level at shipment is 70%
(2.0A) of the rated motor current 2.8A (continuous), and if the current exceeds
the setting value, "E-" and "820" in the displays are displayed after welding
operation is stopped. But, in this case, the welding machine stops operation
automatically, then it self-restores by re-welding. This detection level can be
changed by changing the setting of F10 using F selector key [12]. The setting
range of motor load current trouble detection level is 20% to 150%.
NOTE: Adjust the detection level optionally and use it in the best detection
level, because the application environment and judgment criteria vary
depending on wires and torches and customers respectively.
(11) Setting of Job Memory Fine Adjustment: F11
Under the welding conditions already stored in JOB MEMORY, current can be
finely adjusted with the WELDING CURRNET knob located on the optional
analog remote control and voltage with the VOLTAGE knob. The initial setting
of F11 is “oFF”. When activating the function, set F11 to “on”. Setting both
CURRENT and VOLTAGE knobs to the center of the scales allows the machine
to work under the conditions already stored in the welding conditions memories.
To increase welding current slightly, turn the knob clockwise and to decrease
slightly, turn it counter-clockwise. Welding voltage can be adjusted in the same
manner. The fine adjustment range is ±20%.
NOTE:
•
When no data is stored in the JOB MEMORY, the function cannot be

when unstable welding is caused from malfunction of pulse weld, use a
voltage detection cable (optional accessory K5416G00) for directly detecting
arc voltage(-). When using an extension cable that is more than 30 m long,
use an arc voltage direct detection cable. Connect between base metal and
wire feeder or the direct voltage detection (-) terminal inside the welding power
source. (Voltage detection cable K5416G00 is a 30 m single core cab tyre
cable. Cut it as necessary.)
After connecting the voltage detection cable, activate the function of voltage
direct detection by setting F12 to “on”. The function is preset to “oFF” (invalid)

NOTE: When using the equipment with such as brush for feeding parts
like a turn table, connecting the voltage detection cable to the terminal
for the base metal power cable after setting F12 to “on” is recommended.
(13)Fine Adjustment of Pulse Peak Current
The unit pulse conditions (pulse peak current/time and base current) at pulse
welding is set properly according to welding method and wire diameter, but
you can make the fine adjustment to obtain the optimum conditions of unit
pulse according to the wire brand or welding position.
• The finely adjustable range of pulse peak current is 0 A to ±150 A. The peak
current is set by 1A.
• The finely adjustable range of pulse peak time is 0 ms to ±1.5 ms. The pulse
peak time is set by 0.1 ms.
• The fine adjustable range of
base current is 0 A to ±60A. The base current
is set by 1 A.
In function mode, when pressing the DISPLAY CHANGE key [8] during the

When making a fine adjustment of the unit pulse conditions, adjust the pulse
peak time first. Take longer fine adjustment time when large droplet and
unstable arc (droplet transfer) occurs. Take shorter fine adjustment time when
sharp tip of wire and extremely strong arc occurs. Adjust the pulse peak
current following the same steps as pulse peak time adjustment.
[Precaution for the Fine Adjustment of the Unit Pulse Conditions]
Maximum pulse peak current which can be output varies depending on the
type (capability) of welding machine or arc load. When the pulse peak current
finely adjusted exceeds the maximum pulse peak current, the preset pulse
peak current is not output.
