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

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.
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 for damage or bare wiring −
replace cord immediately if damaged − bare wiring can kill.
D Turn off all equipment when not in use.
D Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
D Do not drape cables over your body.
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 and ground this equipment according to its
Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
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.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter-type
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 cause severe burns.
D Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
D Allow cooling period before working on gun or
torch.
D To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or
wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and
clothing to prevent burns.
OM-211 076 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.
D If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
D Read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
and the manufacturer’s instructions for metals, consumables,
coatings, cleaners, and degreasers.
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 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 Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
D Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
D Wear oil-free protective garments 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.
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 shielding gas supply when not in use.
D Always ventilate confined spaces or use
approved air-supplied respirator.
MAGNETIC FIELDS can affect Implanted
Medical Devices.
D Wearers of Pacemakers and other Implanted
Medical Devices should keep away.
D Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor
and the device manufacturer before going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating
operations.
D Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash,
glare and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
NOISE can damage hearing.
D Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant material (leather, heavy cotton, or wool) and foot protection.
Noise from some processes or equipment can
damage hearing.
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 closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes,
unless they are properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 (see
Safety Standards).
D Do not weld where the atmosphere may 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.
OM-211 076 Page 2
D Wear approved ear protection if noise level is
high.
CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.
Shielding gas cylinders contain gas under high
pressure. If damaged, a cylinder can explode. Since
gas cylinders are normally part of the welding
process, be sure to treat them carefully.
D Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs.
D Install cylinders in an upright position by securing to a stationary
support or cylinder rack to prevent falling or tipping.
D Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits.
D Never drape a welding torch over a gas cylinder.
D Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder.
D Never weld on a pressurized cylinder − explosion will result.
D Use only correct shielding gas cylinders, regulators, hoses, and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them and
associated parts in good condition.
D Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve.
D Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in
use or connected for use.
D Use the right equipment, correct procedures, and sufficient number of persons to lift and move cylinders.

1-6. EMF Information
Considerations About Welding And The Effects Of Low Frequency
Electric And Magnetic Fields
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them, or using a
cable cover.
Welding current, as it flows through welding cables, will cause electromagnetic fields. There has been and still is some concern about such
fields. However, after examining more than 500 studies spanning 17
years of research, a special blue ribbon committee of the National
Research Council concluded that: “The body of evidence, in the
committee’s judgment, has not demonstrated that exposure to powerfrequency electric and magnetic fields is a human-health hazard.”
However, studies are still going forth and evidence continues to be
examined. Until the final conclusions of the research are reached, you
may wish to minimize your exposure to electromagnetic fields when
welding or cutting.
2. Arrange cables to one side and away from the operator.
To reduce magnetic fields in the workplace, use the following
procedures:
OM-211 076 Page 4
3. Do not coil or drape cables around your body.
4. Keep welding power source and cables as far away from operator as practical.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as possible.
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.

LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent
être dangereux.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur
inhalation peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un in
cendie 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 surchauffement 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.
D Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et
de métal chaud.
D Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent
facilement passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites
fissures et des ouvertures.
D Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
D Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à
proximité.
D À l’intérieur, ventiler la zone et/ou utiliser une ventilation forcée au
niveau de l’arc pour l’évacuation des fumées et des gaz de soudage.
D Le soudage effectué sur un plafond, plancher, paroi ou séparation
peut déclencher un incendie de l’autre côté.
D Si la ventilation est médiocre, porter un respirateur anti-vapeurs
approuvé.
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 (voir les normes de sécurité).
D Lire et comprendre les spécifications de sécurité des matériaux
(MSDS) et les instructions du fabricant concernant les métaux, les
consommables, les revêtements, les nettoyants et les dégraisseurs.
D Ne soudez pas si l’air ambiant est chargé de particules, gaz, ou vapeurs inflammables (vapeur d’essence, par exemple).
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 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 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 En cas de non utilisation, enlever la baguette d’électrode du porteélectrode ou couper le fil à la pointe de contact.
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 intense
(ultraviolets et infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlure
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 pendant le soudage
(voir ANSI Z49.1 et Z87.1 énuméré dans les normes de sécurité).
D Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux même sous
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 des vêtements confectionnés avec des matières résistantes et ignifuges (cuir, coton lourd ou laine) et des bottes de
protection.
OM-211 076 Page 6
D Ne pas utiliser le poste de soudage pour dégeler des conduites gelées.
D Porter des vêtements de protection dépourvus d’huile tels que des
gants en cuir, une chemise en matériau lourd, des pantalons sans
revers, des chaussures hautes et un couvre chef.
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.
D Utiliser exclusivement des fusibles ou coupe−circuits appropriés.

2-6. Information EMF
Considérations sur le soudage et les effets de basse fréquence et des
champs magnétiques et électriques.
Le courant de soudage, pendant son passage dans les câbles de soudage, causera des champs électromagnétiques. Il y a eu et il y a encore
un certain souci à propos de tels champs. Cependant, après avoir examiné plus de 500 études qui ont été faites pendant une période de
recherche de 17 ans, un comité spécial ruban bleu du National
Research Council a conclu : « L’accumulation de preuves, suivant le
jugement du comité, n’a pas démontré que l’exposition aux champs
magnétiques et champs électriques à haute fréquence représente un
risque à la santé humaine ». Toutefois, des études sont toujours en
cours et les preuves continuent à être examinées. En attendant que les
conclusions finales de la recherche soient établies, il vous serait
souhaitable de réduire votre exposition aux champs électromagnétiques pendant le soudage ou le coupage.
Pour réduire les champs magnétiques sur le poste de travail, appliquer
les procédures suivantes :
1. Garder les câbles ensemble, les torsader, les scotcher, ou les
recouvrir d’une housse.
2. Disposer les câbles d’un côté et à distance de l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas courber pas et ne pas entourer pas les câbles autour de
votre corps.
4. Garder le poste de soudage et les câbles le plus loin possible de
vous.
5. Connecter la pince sur la pièce aussi près que possible de la
soudure.
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.

SECTION 5 − OPERATION
5-1. Operational Terms
The following is a list of terms and their definitions as they apply to the interface unit in the wire feeder:
General Terms:
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.
Trigger Control
Selecting Trigger Control allows activating trigger functions such as DS, TH, 4T, TDS, and TPS.
DS (Dual Schedule)
Dual Schedule allows selecting a pair of programs that can be used together.
TH (Trigger Hold)
Trigger Hold allows the operator to feed wire without continuously pressing the gun trigger. In trigger
hold mode, momentarily press gun trigger, and wire will feed until gun trigger is momentarily pressed
again.
4T
4T allows the operator to select between weld parameters and crater parameters using the gun
trigger. Crater time must be set for at least 0.2 seconds to make this function operational. If gun
trigger is released during welding, unit goes into trigger hold, then pressing and holding trigger again
causes unit to stay in crater until trigger is released and crater parameter times out.
TDS (Trigger Dual Schedule)
TDS allows the operator to select between a pair of weld programs by using the gun trigger. In TDS
mode, momentarily pressing the gun trigger allows the operator to cycle between a pair of preselected
weld programs.
TPS (Trigger Program Schedule)
TPS allows the operator to select weld programs by using the gun trigger. In TPS mode, momentarily
pressing the gun trigger allows the operator to cycle through preselected weld programs up to a total
of 8 programs.
Program
Eight active slots for selection of various processes, wire type, and parameters.
Process
A selection made for MIG, Pulse, Accu-pulse, and RMD (optional).
MIG
CV weld process with individual settings of voltage and wire speed.
Pulse
Conventional pulse program using peak, background, pulse width, frequency, and peak voltage as
factory taught data. Adaptive method is controlled by frequency adjustment.
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
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.
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.
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.
Wire Type
Selection of wire type by alloys and classification.
Gas Type
Selection of shielding gas being used in application.
Process Set Up
Selection procedure for entering program.
Program Load
Enters selected program information into program slot.
Volts
Preset voltage in MIG mode at idle, actual voltage while welding, and 3 seconds hold value at end of
weld.
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).
Arc Length
Distance from end of wire electrode to workpiece.
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).
Amps
Indicates average amperage while welding and 3 seconds hold value at end of weld.
Arc Control
Allows setting of inductance in MIG mode. 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 in much the same way as inductance.
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.
Adjust
Control knob used to change or set parameters and functions.
OM-211 076 Page 17
General Terms:
Sequence
Selecting Sequence will allow setting of preflow, start, crater, and postflow times and parameters.
Preflow
Setting a time value for gas flow prior to arc start.
Start
Provides voltage/arc adjust, wire feed rate, and time value for modified arc starts (which is only
adjustable with the optional PDA with File Management/WaveWriter software).
Crater
Allows setting of voltage/arc adjust, wire feed rate, and time value for arc ends.
Postflow
Setting a time value for gas flow after arc end.
Feeder Set Up
Allow selection of Sequence and trigger functions.
Auto Thread
Method of jogging wire without holding jog or trigger switch. Pressing Jog and Retract simultaneously
will automatically feed wire. Default setting is 192 at a feed rate of 700 ipm (these values can be
changed using a PDA with File Management/WaveWriter software). Pressing jog, purge, or trigger
switch will terminate the auto-threading feature.
