No. P30051

2. ARC WELDING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (continued)

WELDING can cause fire and explosion.

Sparks and spatter fly off from the welding arc. The flying sparks, 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 power cable for base metal 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. Do not use the welding power source for anything 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, arc 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 arc rays can react with vapors to form highly toxic and irritating gases.

6. 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.

50A

CAUTION

٨

Use the auxiliary power of an engine welder with an improved voltage waveform. Some engine welders have poor electricity, which may cause product damage. Contact an engine welder manufacturer for improvement of voltage 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 from 400 to 420V at no-load welding operation. Setting to extremely high output voltage may result in product damage.

Use an 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 an 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 a single engine generator. The effect of each welding machine may cause easy loss of arc.

9.6 Adjusting of the wire reel hub

After performing inching operation, take care to adjust the brake of the wire reel hub to prevent the wire from slackening. The brake has been properly adjusted before shipment. Therefore, readjustment of the brake is not required for welding in standard welding conditions.

How to adjust the wire reel hub

1. Detach the cap knob from the wire reel shaft.

2. Adjustment of the brake can be achieved by turning the hexagon bolt (M10).

̪

NOTE: Close the feeder cover on the left side, the welding power source and lock both sides after loading the wire.

10. OPERATION (continued)

CAUTION

٨

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.

٨

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 82 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 (mm) 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 (mm) key [3].

For example, when selecting “WAVE PULSE” while setting "DC HARD SOLID CO

2

φ

1.0 " with the WELDING METHOD key [1], the "MILD STEEL SOLID CO

2

" 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.

10.1.6 CONSTANT PENETRATION Function

For conventional CO

2

/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.

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.

10.1.8

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 work during pulse welding or no-pulse welding. When the WAVE PULSE key is pressed while “INITIAL

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. 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 12.6, "Troubleshooting".

The following welding conditions can be adjusted by using the F key [12] and the parameter adjusting knob [6], but only the welding conditions with* next to the function numbers can be preset to the welding condition numbers.

(1) Fine Adjustment of Anti-Stick (Burnback) Time: F1*

Anti-stick (Burnback) time means the processing time to prevent electrode wire from fusing to base metal when welding is completed. Anti-stick

(burnback) time is preset to proper conditions according to welding methods and wire diameters at shipment, but it can be finely adjusted by activating F1.

The standard anti-stick (burnback) time is preset to "0", time decreases in the negative direction and increases in the positive direction. The fine adjustment range is 0 to

±

50 and the unit is 0.01 seconds.

Ex. 1) When the setting value of anti-stick (burnback) time is 25 seconds, add 0.25 second to the standard anti-stick (burnback) time.

Ex. 2) When the setting value of anti-stick (burnback) time is -10, subtract

0.1 second from the standard anti-stick (burnback) time.

(2) Fine Adjustment of Anti-stick (Burnback) Voltage: F2*

Anti-stick (Burnback) voltage means the voltage which is output when processing is carried out to prevent electrode wire from fusing to base metal at the end of welding. Anti-stick (Burnback) voltage is preset to proper conditions according to welding methods and wire diameters at shipment, but it can be finely adjusted by activating F2. The standard anti-stick (burnback) voltage is preset to “0”. When the voltage is set in the negative direction, it decreases.

When the voltage is set in the positive direction, it increases. The fine adjustment range is 0 V to ±9.9V.

(3) Fine Adjustment of Slow-down Speed: F3*

Slowdown speed means the speed to feed wire that is slower than the feed rate at normal welding during the period from startup to arc start. The slowdown speed is preset to proper conditions according to welding methods and wire diameters at shipment, but it can be finely adjusted by activating F3.

The standard slow-down speed is preset to “0”. When the slowdown speed is set in the negative direction, it decreases. When the slowdown speed is set in the positive direction, it increases. The fine adjustment range is 0 m/min to

±

1.0 m/min. When poor arc start occurred, lower the slowdown speed. Even when arc start is good, the slow-down speed can be increased to shorten tact time.

NOTE: The minimum slow-down speed is 0.4 m/min.

(4) Setting of Upslope Time: F6*

Upslope time means the time for increasing welding conditions stepwise when initial current is changed to final current. The upslope time at shipment is set to 0 second, but can be adjusted by using F6. The setting range is 0 second to 10 second. This function is used when wire burns up while conditions are changed over due to the great difference of setting between initial current and main current.

(5) Setting of Down-slope Time: F7*

Down-slope time means the time for decreasing welding conditions stepwise when main current is changed to crater current. The down-slope time at the time of product shipment is set to 0 second, but can be adjusted by using F7.

The setting range covers 0 second to 10 second. This function is used when wire crashes into the base metal while the conditions are changed over due to the great difference of setting between main current and crater current.

(6) Setting of Result Display Holding Time: F8

After completion of welding, the average value of output current and output voltage for last one second blinks for about 20 seconds, but the result display holding time can be set by F8 using F key [12]. The setting range of result display holding time is 5 seconds to 60 seconds.

(7) 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.

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 fine adjustment of pulse width, the DISPLAY CHANGE lamp lights up

(located at the upper left of the DISPLAY CHANGE key). Under this condition, you can switch the fine adjustment value shown in the right display to the modulus (the value which is subtracted or added the fine adjustment value from the standard value). When pressing the DISPLAY

CHANGE key, you can return to the fine adjustment value display mode.

[Example of Fine Adjustment of the Unit Pulse Conditions]

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.

NOTE: When the unit pulse conditions change significantly, there may be a possibility of difference between the preset current value and the output current and an impossibility of appropriate synergic fine adjustment.

-

Fluctuation of power source voltage is not large.

-

Case Earth is surely connected. (Disconnection of the Case Earth may result in failure or malfunction of the equipment.)

-

There is no trouble in crack and the like on front panel.

Checking the followings each three to six months:

-

There is no damage inside the torch.

-

There are no loose connections or no poor contacts caused from rust, on input side of the welding power source and output side of the cables.

-

There is no trouble with insulation.

-

The welding power source is properly grounded.

-

Built-up dust on the transistor or the cold plate on the rectifier may affect the equipments.

Take off the cover of the welding power source once a half year, then remove dust by blowing moisture-free compressed air on each part.

-

The dust protective filter located on the inlet of the fan does not clog, which may result in damage to the welding power source. Be sure to inspect it periodically.

12.2 Precaution for Replacement of the Printed Circuit Board
