Deutz D2.9 L4 Tier 4 Final
compliant diesel.
The cleanest, greenest
diesel power available. Utilizes Diesel
Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) technology
to keep the air clean with NO exhaust
aftertreatment maintenance.
Low OCV Stick is a simple design that
reduces the open-circuit voltage to 15
volts when the welding power source is
not in use. This feature is now built into
the Big Blue 500 Pro for increased
operator safety without compromising
arc starts.
Auto Remote Sense™ (ARS) detects
if a remote control is plugged into the
14-pin receptacle and eliminates
confusion of a remote/panel switch.
Thermal overload protection
prevents machine damage if the
duty cycle is exceeded or airflow
is blocked.
Infinite arc control allows the arc
characteristics to be changed for
specific applications in Stick, MIG
and FCAW.
Remote oil drain prevents spills and
makes servicing easy.
Standard features include digital
preset weld meters, automatic idle
and 120 V block heater.
The Vault — ultimate control
board reliability. See page 4.
Welder/generator is warranted by Miller for 3 years, parts and labor.
Engine is warranted separately by engine manufacturer.

Function Guide
1. Self-Calibrating Digital Weld Meters with
Fault Code Indication display preset or
actual weld parameters.
2. Adjustable Arc Control adjusts DIG when
process control is in Stick mode and adjusts
inductance when process control is in
FCAW or MIG mode. The amount of DIG
determines how much amperage (heat)
varies with Stick arc length. Inductance
determines the “wetness” of the weld puddle.
3. Amperage/Voltage Adjust Control
™
4. Hot Start provides positive Stick electrode
starts making it easy to start all types
of electrodes and it also works great for
bead tie-ins.
5. Great FCAW/MIG Performance and
Arc Starts make the Big Blue® 500 Pro’s arc
best in its class. Easy to run all wires from
.023-inch solid wires to large-diameter
1/8-inch flux-cored wires.
6. Lift-Arc™ TIG with Auto-Stop™
13. Electronic Engine Display can display fuel
level, engine hours, coolant temperature,
oil pressure, battery volts, and engine RPM
simultaneously or one at a time. Also tracks
oil change intervals and displays engine
diagnostics for service technicians.

14. Engine Control Switch is used to start
engine and then select between Auto Idle
and High Speed Lock. Glow plug operation
is controlled by the engine control module
and automatically occurs as needed by
ambient conditions.
15. Standard 14-Pin Receptacle for simple
connection of remote controls and wire
feeders. It features Auto Remote Sense™
which automatically switches from panel to
remote amperage/voltage (A/V) control with
remote connected. Eliminates confusion of
the Panel/Remote A/V switch.

16. Weatherproof Lexan Nameplate is super
durable and resists cracking and fading.
Color coding is for ease of operation.

What Makes Miller Industrial Engine Drives So
®
Superior Circuit Board Design
Our critical circuit boards are engineered to carry low power and low
heat to reduce thermal stress and minimize expansion and contraction.
In contrast, our competitor’s boards carry high power and high heat,
making them more vulnerable to failure.
?
Rigorous Testing for Tough,
Real-World Conditions
To prove our machines go to the
limit, Miller industrial engine drives
are put to the test in very extreme
environmental conditions.
• Airborne dust and sand. Critical
components are exposed to
abusive airborne particles in a
special testing chamber for weeks,
helping make sure they’ll operate
while facing extreme levels of dirt,
dust or sand on the jobsite.
“The Vault” Makes Upgrading to Miller CC/CV Units
Worry-Free
Concerns with circuit board reliability have resulted in some operators
steering clear of CC/CV welder/generators — even though they offer
a superior arc and multiple welding processes. Miller circuit board
reliability isn’t a concern since all Big Blue multiprocess industrial
engine drives feature the Vault.
Created out of two aluminum halves sealed with silicone, as well as
watertight harness connections, the Vault provides a clean circuit
board environment, protecting the electronics — and controlling
output — in heavy industrial applications. No other competitor
protects their electronics with a sealed vault, leaving critical circuit
boards exposed to harsh elements that can disrupt the machine’s
electronics, and therefore, its operation.
• Humidity and corrosion. Inside
our Houston testing room, critical
components are subjected to
extended moisture and corrosive
salt exposure to ensure they’ll run
even when exposed to humid
climates, corrosive coastal
environments, and driving rain.
• Temperature extremes. Miller industrial engine drives are tested
to ensure performance in scorching heat. All Miller engine-driven
machines are weld rated at 104 degrees Fahrenheit, but actual tests are
conducted up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit to assure peak performance.
• Jobsite/over-the-road abuse. Miller industrial engine drives are
shaken for hours on transportation bed simulators, subjected to severe
vibration, and test-dropped and jerked to ensure they’ll withstand the
stresses that can shut down competitive machines.
• Continuous operation. Miller industrial engine drives run day and
night, in all weather conditions, to assure they’ll perform without
interruption in the field.
Why Industrial Engine Drive
Customers Choose Miller
The ultimate test of Miller reliability
is how it performs in the field.

of how Miller industrial engine
drives perform for customers.
