Automation Expansion
Read and follow the power source Owner’s Manual and labels carefully before installing, operating, or servicing unit.
Read the safety information at the beginning of the manual and in each section.
1-1. Software Expansion
. A software update is required to ensure proper
1
operation of all purchased feature expansions.
For instructions to download TIG Software updates, see PDF file F269272 on software expansion memory card.
Card Requirements:
2
. Purchased software expansion memory card
required.
1 Memory Card Port
2 Indicator LED
Enabling Software Expansion:
Insert card containing software expansion into port.
LED indicator blinks green while machine is reading
from or writing to the card. After successfully reading from or writing to the card, the LED switches
from blinking green to continuous green. The machine is now ready to use software expansion. Do
not remove card while LED is blinking green.
. Software expansion card must remain in mem-
ory card port to enable software expansion.
Disabling Software Expansion:
Remove the software expansion card from the
memory card port.
Troubleshooting:
Problem: Indicator LED is continuous red.
Remedy: Remove and reinsert card. If problem
continues, the card is bad. Contact Factory Authorized Service Center for a replacement card.
The memory card port uses an SD memory card.

Company.
Automation Expansion − Enabling the automation software expansion configures Remote 14 socket I for valid arc and socket J for arc length control,
and the ability to configure socket E as an input for Output Enable (Weld Stop) in Dynasty and Maxstar Models.
Additional Parts Required: Plug and pins required to connect to the Dynasty or Maxstar Remote 14 receptacle can be obtained from Miller Electric
Mfg. Co. Parts Dept. :Order Part No. 141 162 − Housing Plugs + Pins (service kit), and install according to instructions provided with the kit.

14-E
RMT
[14-E] Remote - Remote14-Socket E input can be configured for the following:
[RMT] − Remote Controls − Select when using typical Miller remote amperage controls such as: RFCS - 14 HD Foot Control, or RCC -14
Remote Contactor and Current Control
[EXPC] − External Pulse Control − Select when it is desired to control machine amperage from an external source. A command voltage of
0−10 volts DC equals 0 (off) − maximum amperage.
[STOP] − Output Enable (weld stop) − Select to remotely stop the weld outside the normal weld cycle.
Remote 14 socket E connection to socket D must be maintained at all times to enable output. If connection is broken, output stops,
postflow begins, and AUTO STOP is displayed on the meters.

remote control.
D
Remote control circuit common.
E
0 to +10 volts DC input command signal from
remote control.
*Reconfigurable as input for Output Enable (Weld
Stop) − used to remotely stop the weld outside the
normal welding cycle. Connection to the D socket
must be maintained at all times. If the connection
is broken, output stops, and Auto Stop is displayed.
F
Current feedback; +1 volt DC per 100 amperes.
H
Voltage feedback; +1 volt DC per 10 volts output.
I*
Valid arc indication closed to socket G with valid
arc. Electrical specifications: open collector transistor (see Section 1-4 for connection example).
J*
Arc length control lockout closed to socket G during Initial and Final Amperage and Slope, and during the background time of a <=10 Hz pulse waveform. Electrical specifications: open collector transistor (see Section 1-4 for connection example).
**
Touch Sense Detection closed to Socket G, with
Modbus’s Touch Sense enabled and machine not
triggered for weld output.

Sockets G and K are electrically isloated from each other.
. If a remote hand control, like the RHC-14, is connected to the Remote 14 receptacle, some current value above min. must be set on the remote
control before the Panel or Remote contactor is turned on. Failure to do so will cause current to be controlled by the panel control, and the remote
hand control will not function.
*Available with optional Automation Expansion memory card.
**Available with optional Modbus Expansion memory card. Modbus serial communication provides access to all front panel parameters and
machine functionality. See Owner’s Manual 265415 for a list of Modbus registers. Modbus expansion also includes functionality of Automation,
AC Independent Amplitude (Dynasty 210/280 only), Hot Wire and Hot Start Adjust Expansions.
