TRANSMIG VS 212

13. In confined spaces or damp locations, do not use a welder with AC output unless it is equipped with a voltage reducer. Use equipment with DC output.

14. Wear a safety harness to prevent falling if working above floor level.

15. Keep all panels and covers securely in place.

WARNING

FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous to your health.

Welding produces fumes and gases.

Breathing these fumes and gases can be hazardous to your health.

ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin; NOISE can damage hearing.

Arc rays from the welding process produce intense heat and strong ultraviolet rays that can burn eyes and skin. Noise from some processes can damage hearing.

WARNING

1. Wear a welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter (see ANSI Z49.1 listed in Safety Standards) to protect your face and eyes when welding or watching.

2. Wear approved safety glasses. Side shields recommended.

3. Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash and glare; warn others not to watch the arc.

4. Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant material (wool and leather) and foot protection.

5. Use approved ear plugs or ear muffs if noise level is high.

1. Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breath the fumes.

2. If inside, 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 (MSDSs) and the manufacturer’s instruction for metals, consumables, coatings, and cleaners.

5. Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an air-supplied respirator.

Shielding gases used for welding can displace air causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.

6. 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.

1. Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.

2. Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.

3. Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.

4. Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can easily go through small cracks and openings to 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 cause fire on the hidden side.

7. Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks or drums.

8. 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 and fire hazards.

9. Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.

10. Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at contact tip when not in use.

1. Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, and arcs.

2. Install and secure cylinders in an upright position by chaining them to a stationary support or equipment cylinder rack to prevent falling or tipping.

3. Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits.

4. Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder.

5. Use only correct shielding gas cylinders, regulators, hoses, and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them and associated parts in good condition.

6. Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve.

7. Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in use or connected for use.

8. Read and follow instructions on compressed gas cylinders, associated equipment, and CGA publication P-1 listed in Safety Standards.

NOTE

Considerations About Welding And The

Effects of Low Frequency Electric and

Magnetic Fields

The following is a quotation from the General

Conclusions Section of the U.S. Congress, Office of

Technology Assessment, Biological Effects of Power

Frequency Electric & Magnetic Fields - Background

Paper, OTA-BP-E-63 (Washington, DC: U.S.

Government Printing Office, May 1989): “...there is now a very large volume of scientific findings based on experiments at the cellular level and from studies with animals and people which clearly establish that low frequency magnetic fields and interact with, and produce changes in, biological systems. While most of this work is of very high quality, the results are complex. Current scientific understanding does not yet allow us to interpret the evidence in a single coherent framework. Even more frustrating, it does not yet allow us to draw definite conclusions about questions of possible risk or to offer clear sciencebased advice on strategies to minimize or avoid potential risks.”

To reduce magnetic fields in the workplace, use the following procedures.

The above procedures are among those also normally recommended for pacemaker wearers. Consult your doctor for complete information.

TRANSMIG VS 212

2.11 Power Source Compatibility

Since the TRANSMIG VS 212 operates on arc voltage, it will work with most constant current (CC) or constant voltage (CV) DC type power sources.

When connected to a TRANSMIG VS 212, the maximum allowed open circuit voltage (OCV) of the power source is 100 VDC. Open circuit voltages exceeding 100 VDC will damage or shorten the life of the unit.

NOTE

Because of the high open circuit voltage associated with most CC power sources, it is recommended to place the TRANSMIG

VS 212 power switch in the OFF position when not welding. This procedure will prolong the life of electrical components connected to the power input lines.

When using the TRANSMIG VS 212, there must be at least 15 VDC between the output terminals of the power source during standby and while welding.

Otherwise, the unit will not have enough input voltage to operate properly.

A contactor is a standard component of the

TRANSMIG VS 212 and allows the welding wire to remain electrically cold until the gun switch trigger is depressed. This contactor is rated for 425 amps of welding current at a 60% duty cycle. If the weld current or duty cycle rating is exceeded, the contactor will be damaged or its life shortened.

OPERATION

4.01 Prewelding Procedure

Follow all installation instructions for the welding power source, the welding gun, and the VS 212 CC/

CV wire feeder before attempting to weld.

1. Make sure all necessary connections have been made (refer to Connections in the Installation chapter of this manual).

2. Turn ON the power source and the wire feeder.

3. Set the CC/CV mode switch on the wire feeder to the proper position (refer to paragraph 12, CC/CV

Mode Switch on page 2-9 and figure 4-1).

5. Depress the inch switch (if equipped) or gun switch and adjust the wire feed speed to the desired value by means of the wire feed speed control. The wire feed speed control can be adjusted during setup or while welding.

!

WARNING

If the gun switch is depressed, the wire feeder will feed electrically hot welding wire. If this hot welding wire touches the work piece, a welding arc will be established.

Art # A-07254

6. Adjust the voltage control (on a CV machine) or current control (on a CC machine) to the desired value. The voltage or current control can be adjusted during setup or while welding.

7. If using a CV power source, the output contactor on the power source will have to be energized. In most cases, this will require a jumper to be added to the power source or a switch on the power source to be turned on. Read the power source owner’s manual for proper connections or settings required.

4.02 Welding Procedure

!

WARNING

In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding, the welding wire, wire reel (if used), input guide, feed rolls, output guide, feedhead, and welding gun metal parts are all ELECTRICALLY HOT.

Refer to Functional Timing Diagram on the previous page.

1. To start the weld, position the welding gun above the work piece and depress the gun switch trigger.

The solid state control then enables the gas valve, wire feed motor, and power source.

2. To end the weld, release the gun switch trigger while pulling the welding gun away from the work piece. The solid state control then disables the gas valve, wire feed motor, and power source.

NOTE

After the weld is completed, it is recommended to pull the welding gun away from the work while releasing the gun switch. This allows the welding arc to partially extinguish at the work piece which reduces the arcing at the contactor contacts. Using this procedure will lengthen the life of the contactor contacts especially when welding at high amperage.

3. At the end of the work day or when welding has been completed, it is recommended that the gas be SHUT OFF at the cylinder, and the wire feeder and power source be turned OFF.

4.03 Welding In CC Mode vs. CV

Mode

1. Welding in CC Mode: When welding with a constant current (CC) power source, changes in wire feed speed will affect welding voltage.

To adjust the amount of welding current from the

CC power source, a control knob on the power source or an optional control knob on the wire feeder will have to be adjusted.

The solid state control of a “slow run-in” circuit automatically reduces the initial wire feed speed when operating with a CC power source. This initial reduction in wire feed speed will compensate for the high open circuit voltage associated with CC power sources and improve arc starting performance.

B. Welding in CV Mode: When welding with a constant voltage (CV) power source, changes in wire feed speed will affect welding current.

Changes in wire feed speed can be obtained by adjusting the wire feed speed control knob.

To adjust the amount of welding voltage from the

CV power source, a control knob on the power source or an optional control knob on the wire feeder will have to be adjusted.

4.04 Theory Of Operation

Refer to the Connection and Schematic Diagram in the Appendix chapter of this manual.

Input power is supplied through the on/off switch (S1) and input circuit breaker (CB1) to the bridge rectifier

(CR1). CR1 ensures that the proper polarity input voltage is fed into the PC boards independent of the welding polarity.

When the gun switch on the welding gun is pulled, a short is provided on the gun switch receptacle (J4) causing the wire feed motor (B1) to turn feeding wire, the gas valve (L1) to open allowing gas flow, and the contactor (K1) to close making the welding wire electrically hot.

When the gun switch on the welding gun is released, the short on the gun switch receptacle is removed causing the wire feed motor to stop feeding wire, the gas valve to close stopping gas flow, and the contactor to open making the welding wire electrically cold.

OPERATION 4-2 Manual No. 0-4949

4.05 Adjusting Burnback Time

Burnback time is set at the factory, but the motor control printed circuit board contains a component that permits adjustment of burnback time.

Burnback time relates to the amount of welding wire remaining at the end of the welding gun after the welding process ends. Increasing burnback time results in less wire remaining at the end of the welding gun at the end of the weld. Decreasing burnback time results in more wire remaining at the end of the welding gun after the welding process ends.

WARNING

ELECTRIC SHOCK CAN KILL. Make certain the power source and wire feeder are both turned OFF before beginning the procedure.

TRANSMIG VS 212

3. Locate component R68 (Burnback) on the motor control printed circuit board (refer to Figure 4-3).

The best procedure is to make only slight adjustments until the amount of burnback is acceptable.

Component R68 has a single turn (360°) range of adjustment.

To increase burnback time, adjust component R68 clockwise.

To decrease burnback time, adjust component

R68 counterclockwise.

4. Replace the internal cover.

5. Replace the wire spool hub (refer to 3.03 Adjustment Of Spool Tension in Section 3 of this manual).

4.06 Wire Feed Speed Ranges

The range of the wire feed speed adjustment knob on the front panel can be set to either High or Low. The

High/Low switch is located on the inside panel next to the CC/CV switch. Refer to Figure 4-4.

1. Using a nut driver or socket, remove the wire spool hub .

2. Remove the internalcover (refer to Figure 4-3).

5.04 Troubleshooting Hints

Examine connections for proper assembly and contact before replacing an electrical component or printed circuit board. Wire lugs should be in tight contact with the lead’s conductor and should be crimped to the lead’s insulation. The mating surfaces of the connection should be clean and free of oxidation.

Do not pull on wires to disassemble connections. Firmly grasp each lug or connector when disconnecting. Pulling on wires for disassembly can damage the integrity of the connection and cause future malfunctions.

Prior to disassembly or servicing of the machine, note the wiring and connections in the machine.

Reassembling should place the wires in the same location and routing as received from the factory. Keep wires and leads away from hot parts and sharp objects.
