From Miller to You
Thank you and congratulations on choosing Miller. Now you can get
the job done and get it done right. We know you don’t have time to do
it any other way.
That’s why when Niels Miller first started building arc welders in 1929,
he made sure his products offered long-lasting value and superior
quality. Like you, his customers couldn’t afford anything less. Miller
products had to be more than the best they could be. They had to be the
best you could buy.
Today, the people that build and sell Miller products continue the
tradition. They’re just as committed to providing equipment and service
that meets the high standards of quality and value established in 1929.
This Owner’s Manual is designed to help you get the most out of your
Miller products. Please take time to read the Safety precautions. They
will help you protect yourself against potential hazards on the worksite.
We’ve made installation and operation quick
and easy. With Miller you can count on years
of reliable service with proper maintenance.
And if for some reason the unit needs repair,
there’s a Troubleshooting section that will
help you figure out what the problem is. The
Miller is the first welding parts list will then help you to decide the
equipment manufacturer in exact part you may need to fix the problem.

Protect yourself and others from injury — read, follow, and save these important safety precautions and operating instructions.
1-1. Symbol Usage
DANGER! − Indicates a hazardous situation which, if
not avoided, will result in death or serious injury. The
possible hazards are shown in the adjoining symbols
or explained in the text.
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in death or serious injury. The possible
hazards are shown in the adjoining symbols or explained in the text.
NOTICE − Indicates statements not related to personal injury.
. Indicates special instructions.
This group of symbols means Warning! Watch Out! ELECTRIC
SHOCK, MOVING PARTS, and HOT PARTS hazards. Consult symbols and related instructions below for necessary actions to avoid the
hazards.
1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
The symbols shown below are used throughout this manual
to call attention to and identify possible hazards. When you
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.
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, ground, and operate this equipment according to
its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
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 and ground conductor for
damage or bare wiring – replace immediately if damaged – bare
wiring can kill.
D Turn off all equipment when not in use.
D Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or repaired cables.
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. Disconnect cable for process not in
use.
D Use GFCI protection when operating auxiliary equipment in damp
or wet locations.
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.
D Allow cooling period before working on
equipment.
D To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and clothing to prevent burns.
OM-220388 Page 1
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. The recommended way
to determine adequate ventilation is to sample for the composition
and quantity of fumes and gases to which personnel are exposed.
D If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
D Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
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.
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 body protection made from durable, flame−resistant material (leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes
oil-free clothing such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless
trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
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 containers that have held combustibles, or on
closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes unless they are
properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 and AWS A6.0 (see
Safety Standards).
D Do not weld where the atmosphere can 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.
OM-220388 Page 2
D Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
D Wear body protection made from durable, flame−resistant material
(leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free
clothing 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.
D Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
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

1-6. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). The current from arc welding (and allied processes including spot welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, and
induction heating operations) creates an EMF field around the welding
circuit. EMF fields can interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective measures for persons wearing medical implants
have to be taken. For example, restrict access for passers−by or conduct individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the
following procedures in order to minimize exposure to EMF fields from
the welding circuit:
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-220388 Page 4
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.
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.

dégraisseurs, les flux et les métaux.
D Travailler dans un espace fermé seulement s’il est bien ventilé ou
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 e
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).

votre casque.
D Avoir recours à des écrans protecteurs ou à des rideaux pour
protéger les autres contre les rayonnements les éblouissements
et les étincelles ; prévenir toute personne sur les lieux de ne pas
regarder l’arc.
D Porter un équipement de protection pour le corps fait d’un matériau
résistant et ignifuge (cuir, coton robuste, laine). La protection du
corps comporte des vêtements sans huile comme par ex. des
gants de cuir, une chemise solide, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et une casquette.
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 surOM-220388 Page 6
chauffement 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.

facilement passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites
fissures et des ouvertures.
D Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à
proximité.
D Le soudage effectué sur un plafond, plancher, paroi ou séparation
peut déclencher un incendie de l’autre côté.
D Ne pas effectuer le soudage sur des conteneurs fermés tels que
des réservoirs, tambours, ou conduites, à moins qu’ils n’aient été
préparés correctement conformément à AWS F4.1 et AWS A6.0
(voir les Normes de Sécurité).
D Ne pas souder là où l’air ambiant pourrait contenir des poussières,
gaz ou émanations inflammables (vapeur d’essence, par exemple).
D Brancher le câble de masse sur la pièce le plus près possible de la
zone de soudage pour éviter le transport du courant sur une
longue distance par des chemins inconnus éventuels en provoquant des risques d’électrocution, d’étincelles et d’incendie.
D Ne pas utiliser le poste de soudage pour dégeler des conduites gelées.
D En cas de non utilisation, enlever la baguette d’électrode du porteélectrode ou couper le fil à la pointe de contact.
D Porter un équipement de protection pour le corps fait d’un matériau
résistant et ignifuge (cuir, coton robuste, laine). La protection du
corps comporte des vêtements sans huile comme par ex. des
gants de cuir, une chemise solide, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et une casquette.
D Avant de souder, retirer toute substance combustible de vos poches telles qu’un allumeur au butane ou des allumettes.
D Une fois le travail achevé, assurez−vous qu’il ne reste aucune
trace d’étincelles incandescentes ni de flammes.

2-6. Informations relatives aux CEM
Le courant électrique qui traverse tout conducteur génère des champs
électromagnétiques (CEM) à certains endroits. Le courant issu d’un
soudage à l’arc (et de procédés connexes, y compris le soudage par
points, le gougeage, le découpage plasma et les opérations de
chauffage par induction) crée un champ électromagnétique (CEM)
autour du circuit de soudage. Les champs électromagnétiques produits
peuvent causer interférence à certains implants médicaux, p. ex. les
stimulateurs cardiaques. Des mesures de protection pour les porteurs
d’implants médicaux doivent être prises: Limiter par exemple tout accès
aux passants ou procéder à une évaluation des risques individuels pour
les soudeurs. Tous les soudeurs doivent appliquer les procédures
suivantes pour minimiser l’exposition aux CEM provenant 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
OM-220388 Page 8
câbles d’un côté et à distance de l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas courber et ne pas entourer les câbles autour de votre
corps.
4. Maintenir la tête et le torse aussi loin que possible du matériel du
circuit de soudage.
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.
En ce qui concerne les implants médicaux :
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.

5-8. Touch Sensor Operation
The touch sensor feature allows the robot to locate a weldment using the wire feed system and welding power source. The weld output terminals provide a path for touch sensor voltage when this feature is turned on at the peripheral receptacle. Turning on touch sensor causes a DC voltage to be
present on the welding wire. When welding wire touches the weldment, the voltage sensing circuit closes, and a +24 volts DC output signal is sent to the
robot control indicating weldment detection. Touch sensor DC voltage on the welding wire is 80 volts DC. As soon as touch sensor turns on, WIRE LIVE
appears on the front panel display.
5-9. Remote Program Select
. Remote Program Select is factory set to “On”. WaveWriter or File Management software is required to turn this function “Off”.
When Remote Program Select is On, a remote device or robot pendant may be used to select programs. When Off, program selection must be done
from the welding power source front panel.
5-10. Remote Program Setting
. When Remote Program Select is “On”, program selection will be determined by remote input once a weld is initiated. Prior to welding, program
selection can be done in a normal manner from the welding power source front control panel.

SECTION 6 − OPERATION
6-1. Operational Terms
The following is a list of terms and their definitions as they apply to this interface unit:
General Terms:
AccuCurve
CV Pulse process using a pulse waveform with modified curves at particular locations within the waveform. Has
a distinguished change in arc characteristics. Front panel display is ACCU − CURV.
Accu-pulse
Pulse process utilizing constant current ramps with constant voltage control of peaks and backgrounds.
Adaptive response is controlled by peak and minimum current levels. Benefits are shorter arc lengths, better
puddle control, more tolerant of tip-to-work variation, less audible noise, no arc wandering, allows weld to fill in
at toes increasing travel speed and deposition, and more tolerant to poor fit up and gaps.
Accuspeed (optional)
CV Pulse process designed for high travel speeds. Typically used in Robotic applications. Arc is designed to be
tight and fast. Front panel display is ACCU − SPED.
Adjust
Control knob used to change or set parameters and functions.
Amps
Indicates average amperage while welding and 3 seconds hold value at end of weld.
Arc Adjust
Term used to represent arc length adjustments in pulse programs. Increasing Arc Adjust increases the actual
arc length. Likewise, decreasing arc adjust shortens arc length. Arc Adjust is replaced by volts in MIG
programs.
Arc Control
Pressing this button will allow setting of inductance in MIG mode and sharp arc in pulse, Accu-pulse, and RMD
(optional).
Arc Length
Distance from end of wire electrode to workpiece.
Auto Thread
Method of jogging wire without holding jog or trigger switch. Pressing Jog and Retract simultaneously will
automatically feed wire. Default setting is 72 inches at a feed rate of 700 ipm. Pressing jog, purge, or trigger
switch will terminate the auto-threading feature. These values can be changed using a PDA with File
Management/WaveWriter software.
Crater
Allows setting of voltage/arc adjust, wire feed rate, and time value for arc ends (only available on Auto Axcess
models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the
optional PDA with File Management software).
Gas Type
Selection of shielding gas being used in application.
Inductance
In short circuit GMAW welding, an increase in inductance will decrease the number of short circuit transfers per
second (provided no other changes are made) and increase the arc-on time. The increased arc-on time makes
the welding puddle more fluid.
MIG
CV weld process with individual settings of voltage and wire speed.
Postflow
Setting a time value for gas flow after arc end (only available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On and Analog
input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the optional PDA with File Management software).
Preflow
Setting a time value for gas flow prior to arc start (only available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On and
Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the optional PDA with File
Management software).
Process
A selection made for MIG, Pulse, Accu-pulse, and RMD (optional).
Process Set Up
Selection procedure for entering program.
Program
Eight active slots for selection of various processes, wire types, and parameters.
Program Load
Enters selected program information (process, wire type, gas, etc.) into program slot (1-8).
Pulse
Conventional pulse program using peak, background, pulse width, frequency, and peak voltage as factory
taught data. Adaptive method is controlled by frequency adjustment.
Retract
Sequence function that allows the wire to move back towards the contact tip when a welding operation is
completed. Setting is both speed (IPM) and time (sec), (only available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On
and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the optional PDA with File
Management software).
RMD (optional)
RMD refers to Regulated Metal Deposition. A precisely controlled short-circuit transfer. Benefits of RMD are well
suited to thin materials, improves gap filling and spatter reduction. Provides less heat input into workpiece,
minimizes distortion and allows use of larger diameter wire on thin gauge materials.
Sequence
Selecting Sequence will allow setting of preflow, start, crater, postflow, and retract times and parameters (only
available on Auto Axcess models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes).
Sharp Arc
In pulse and Accu-pulse mode this adjustment changes the arc cone by adjusting the preprogrammed factory
pulse data. In RMD (optional) this control will affect the arc in much the same way as inductance.
Start
Provides voltage/arc adjust, wire feed rate, and time value for modified arc starts (only available on Auto Axcess
models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the
optional PDA with File Management software).
Synergic
Synergic refers to the unit’s ability to use preprogrammed pulse parameters to determine the actual pulse
settings of Peak Amperage, Background Amperage, Pulse Frequency and Pulse Width at any specific wire feed
speed setting.
OM-220388 Page 22
6-1 . Operational Terms (Continued)
Time
Indicates time values being set for timed functions (e.g. Preflow, Postflow which are only available in the Arc On
and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes).
Volts
Preset voltage in MIG mode at idle, actual voltage while welding, and 3 seconds hold value at end of weld.
Weld
Sequence function that allows for a timed weld operation [(0 to 999 seconds) only available on Auto Axcess
models in the Arc On and Analog input or the Arc On and No Analog input modes, and can only be set with the
optional PDA with File Management software].
WFS
Term used to represent wire feed speed. In MIG mode, wire feed setting is independent of voltage setting. In
pulse, Accu-pulse, and RMD (optional) adjusting wire feed speed also increases power level on wire electrode
(one knob control).
Wire Type
Selection of wire type by alloys and classification.

8-3. California Proposition 65 Warnings
Welding or cutting equipment produces fumes or gases
which contain chemicals known to the State of California to
cause birth defects and, in some cases, cancer. (California
Health & Safety Code Section 25249.5 et seq.)
This product contains chemicals, including lead, known to
the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other
reproductive harm. Wash hands after use.
8-4. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). The current from arc welding (and allied processes including spot welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, and
induction heating operations) creates an EMF field around the welding
circuit. EMF fields can interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective measures for persons wearing medical implants
have to be taken. For example, restrict access for passers−by or conduct individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the
following procedures in order to minimize exposure to EMF fields from
the welding circuit:
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.
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.
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.

Emergency Stop Error
Indicates an emergency stop error.
Receptacle RC5-1 connects to receptacle RC1-4 and receptacle RC5-2 connects to receptacle RC4-2 on E-Stop board
PC12. A closure between RC4-1 and RC4-2 allows +24 volts DC to be supplied to the four relays on E-Stop board PC12.
In an E-Stop situation (relays open), all four relays on the E-Stop board de-energize and cut power to the control boards.
E
When relay CR1 on E-Stop board PC12 is de-energized, it drops out the 18 volts AC from transformer T1 that powers the
inverter control board(s).
STOP
When relay CR2 on E-Stop board PC12 is de-energized, it breaks the contactor signal being sent to the inverter engine
board(s) from the process control module PC4 (J2-9 to RC2-3) and causes a loss of signal to the AIM board (RC2-1 and
RC2-2) and to micro input (RC5-3 and RC5-4), signaling an E-Stop is active.
When relay CR3 on E-Stop board PC12 is de-energized, it breaks the secondary side output of the motor board before it
goes to the filter board.
Relay CR4 on E-Stop board PC12 is a soft start relay in parallel with the contacts of relay CR1.
B.
Arc Error
ERR
ARC
C.
COOL
GND
LINE
Indicates that primary power has dropped below the operating point of the welding power source. Signal is sent from inverter engine module(s) (RC6, Pin 9 on inverter control board PC1) to process control module PC4 (J2, Pin 1). Check for a
brown-out condition. The primary boost capacitors have dropped below an acceptable minimum voltage threshold.
This circuit monitors the 940 volts primary DC bus voltage across the electrolytic capacitors C1 and C2. Low line is displayed when this voltage drops below 858 volts DC. This could happen when attempting to draw near rated output power
with an input voltage below 190 volts AC, three phase. This causes the boost section to go into current limit trying to supply the output power. Once current limit is reached, the boost section can no longer hold the bus capacitors at 940 volts
DC. The inverter control will also go into an output current limit mode in an attempt to supply output power.
Motor Over Current Error
ERR
MOTR
G.
Indicates that weld current is flowing through the primary ground. This is a latching error and welding power source power
must be cycled off and back on again.
Line Error
ERR
F.
Indicates no coolant flow in water flow switch option. The error may be reset by reestablishing coolant flow to the gun, and
then pressing the Jog/Purge button.
Ground Current Detect Error
ERR
E.
Arc error can be enabled or disabled using an optional PDA with File Management/WaveWriter software.
No Coolant Flow Error
ERR
D.
Indicates voltage has exceeded the programmable limit of a valid arc for the programmed amount of time (default time is
500 ms). Check contact tip, weld conditions, and shielding gas.
Indicates that the motor has been drawing too much current for too long a time period. To remedy this fault, reduce the wire
feed speed or the wire feeder torque load/duty cycle. Press Jog/Purge button to clear error.
Arc Start Error
ERR
STRT
OM-220388 Page 34
Indicates the contactor either is or was active, but the system failed to start an arc. Conditions for a valid arc start are at
least 50% of arc start current, voltage less than 60 volts, and voltage greater than min. valid arc voltage (default is 22.5
volts). This situation is usually attributed to a contact tip or feeder issue. The arc start error parameter can be disabled
using an optional PDA with File Management/Wave Writer software.

Thermal Over Temperature Error
Indicates one or more of the inverter engines overheated. Sent from inverter engine module(s) (RC6, Pin 12, on inverter
control board PC1) to process control module PC4 (J2, Pin 7). Check fan on inverter engine(s) and weld currents.
This signal is the sum of two conditions: shutdown that comes from the temperature monitoring circuit on the inverter control board, and Pwr-Up-Cnt that generated by the boost section of the inverter control board. When either of these signals
is active, RC6-12 is pulled low (this is the not ready line out of the inverter control board).
Shutdown is active when there is an over-temperature condition on the primary or secondary heatsink or on the boost
inductor. To determine which of the two locations is at fault, check LED 1 and LED 2 on inverter control board PC1.
ERR
TEMP
S
If LED 1 is lit, this indicates an over-temperature condition on the primary heat sink.
S
If LED 2 is lit, this indicates an over-temperature condition on the secondary heat sink or on the boost inductor.
Pwr-Up-Cnt (power up control) monitors primary voltage start-up conditions when the power source is first turned on. This
signal is opto-isolated from the boost section of the inverter control board. The following conditions must be met for the
power source to power up:
S
Auxiliary power board PC3 must be powered up and operating to supply prepower of +15 volts DC to the boost section of inverter control board PC1.
S
The peak voltage of the input line power must be greater than 150 volts peak.
S
The DC bus voltage must be greater than 85% of the rectified line voltage. This bus voltage also turns on the
pre-charge relay.
S
The DC bus voltage must be boosted to greater than 858 volts DC.
If any of these conditions are not met, then receptacle RC6-12 is pulled low and weld output is locked out.
J.
Unknown Error
ERR
UNKN
Indicates error bit from process control module PC4 is set, but error value sent does not match anything defined with the
UIM board PC7.
OM-220388 Page 35

Motor Communications Error
The motor board has lost communication with the PCM board PC4. Check cabling and cable routing for boom system
motor cable and secondary cables. Separate cable as much as possible.
Check if WFM board PC6 code is installed and if microprocessor is running. Check LED3 and LED4 on WFM board PC6.
Depending on the wire feed speed, check for 0-40 volts DC on J17-3 to J17-1. If there is no voltage present there, check
for 40 volts DC at J16-1 to J16-2. If voltage is present there and neither LED is lit (Red or Green), try to download WFM
code to welding power source. If neither LED turns on after downloading code and cycling power, replace WFM board
PC6.
If LED3 and LED4 are flashing Red or Green or they are solid Red, this indicates the WFM board is still not communicating
with the PCM board PC4. Be sure that the UIM board PC7 is on-line (two green LEDs lit).
MOTR
S
Check all Devicenet grey harness connections between process control module PC4, UIM board PC7, and WFM
board PC6.
S
Check process control module PC4 for +24 volts DC at 6-pin connector J6-2 (+) and J6-5 (−).
If +24 volts is not present at the connector, proceed as follows:
S
Disconnect connector J10 and J11 from WFM board PC6. Check for +24 volts DC at J10-2 (+) and J10-5 (−), and
J11-2 (+) and J11-5 (−). One of the two connectors must measure +24 volts DC to ensures that the Devicenet lines
are being sent from process control module PC4 to WFM board PC6. If +24 volts DC is present at either connector,
replace WFM board PC6.
S
If +24 volts DC is not present at either J10 or J11 connector, check process control module PC4 at connectors J6, J7,
and J8.Remove plugs from connectors and check for +24 volts DC at pin2 (+) and pin 5 (−). If +24 volts DC is not
present at any of the connectors, replace process control module PC4.
COMM
If LED3 and LED4 are both green this indicates that the WFM board went off-line and then recovered which is usually due
to noise interference.
L.
S
Check wire drive motor isolation. Isolated portion of motor housing should not touch robot arm, welding power source
chassis, lifting eye bolts, or weld secondary common. Measure impedance between chassis and both weld secondary
commons. Measure the impedance across motor isolation barrier on motor housing. All measurements should read
high impedance.
S
Check all Devicenet grey harness connections between process control module PC4, UIM board PC7, and WFM
board PC6.
Over Average Current Error
Output current is exceeding the thermal capabilities of the welding power source for approximately 25 seconds.
Default value is as follows:
Axcess 450 limit is 610 A average
This is a duty cycle error and requires 5 minutes with power on and NO welding to clear the error.
This error indicates that an excessive amount of current was drawn over a short period of time. Over-average current is
drawn for a period of approximately 25 seconds and can also be expressed as exceeding the power source duty cycle.
OVER
AVE
The current limit is as follows:
Axcess 450 is 610 amperes
This alarm cannot be reset. To clear the condition, the power source must be turned on and allowed to idle for approximately 5 minutes. This cooling period is determined by an internal timer, and turn off power will not reset the timer since it is
saved with the Configuration data. After the 5 minute cooling period, press the Jog or Purge button, or cycle power to clear
the alarm.
If this alarm was received by mistake, and the power source did not exceed the duty cycle, check the following:
Check current feedback signal either while welding or connecting to a load bank. Measure between test point TP8 and
grounding strap on process control module PC4. Test point TP8 is located on left-hand side of board, about 1 in. (25 mm)
to the right of connector J11. TP8 is scaled: 1 volt measured equals 100 amperes actual. This measurement should read 0
volts when not welding. If the measurement reads approximately 13 volts DC, disconnect LEM device from engine (one at
a time) to determine if either device is bad. If the voltage reading still does not change, unplug the lower inverter control
board; if the reading remains the same, replace the upper inverter control board. Voltage readings should be present while
welding. If voltage readings are not correct for current feedback scaling, check individual inverter engines.
OM-220388 Page 36
M.
Over Current Error
Indicates one or more of the inverter engines has latched with an over-current. Signal is sent from engine module(s) (RC6,
Pin 11, on inverter control board PC1) to process control module PC4 (J2, Pin 6).
OVER
The over-current circuit monitors the inverter high frequency transformer primary current. Normal welding will never trip
this circuit, only a fault will cause an over-current condition. LED4 will be lit on the inverter control board, and power must
be cycled to clear this error.
S
The most likely fault to trip this circuit is an open 940 volts DC bus bleeder resistor, either R1 or R8 on the interconnect
board. An open resistor will cause the bus, which is split between two series capacitors, to become unbalanced. The
capacitor with the open resistor will go to approximately 340 volts DC. The other capacitor will go to approximately 600
volts DC. Normally, both capacitors are at approximately 470 volts DC. The unit will weld like this most of the time. A
16 uF balancing capacitor in series with the transformer can keep the transformer from saturating under these adverse
conditions. Occasionally, the inverter transformer will saturate, and when this happens, it draws a huge amount of
current and trips the over-current circuit. This condition locks off the inverter control board and eventually the bus capacitors will fail. A change to a different resistor eliminated this situation and the problem is no longer an issue.
S
A shorted output diode will cause an over-current error and no weld output will be available.

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.
