INTRODUCTION
This manual describes use of the A4 control panel, which is installed in the AristoArc
400 & AristoArc 500 power unit.
For general information on operation, see the power source operating instructions.

Remote control unit
Using a remote control unit, the primary parameters of the welding process can be
controlled from a device other than the control panel.
Aristo machines with intergral control panels should have program version 1.21 or
higher, in order for the remote control to function correctly.

S
The display freezes in the menu showing when the remote control is connected.
Measurement and setting values are updated, but only shown in those menus in
which the values can be displayed.
S
If a fault code symbol is displayed, it cannot be removed until the remote control
has been disconnected.

MENUS
The control panel uses several different menus. They are the main, measurement
and settings menus.
2.1
Main and measurement menus
The main menu is always displayed immediately after the
machine is started. The menu shows the values which have
been set. If the main menu is displayed when welding
begins, it switches over automatically to show the measured
values (measurement menu). The measured values will be
displayed even after welding has been completed.

GB
The settings menu can be accessed without losing the measured values. It is only
when the knob is turned that the setting values are displayed instead of the measured
values.
2.2
Settings menu
Different values can be entered in the settings menu.
To access the settings menu, press
,

or

When the power source is switched off and restarted, the last values to be set are
recalled.

*) This function cannot be changed while welding is in progress.
**) When selecting electrode type, the start value is always 3 for arc force.
Hot start
Hot start increases the weld current for an adjustable time at the start of welding,
thus reducing the risk of poor fusion at the beginning of the joint.
Arc force
The arc force is important in determining how the current changes in response to a
change in the arc length. A lower value gives a calmer arc with less spatter.
Current
A higher current produces a wider weld pool, with better penetration into the
workpiece.
Irrespective of which menu is displayed, the setting value for the current can be
changed. The value is only displayed in the main menu.

Explanation of symbols
Active symbol (dark background). Active means that the function which the
symbol represents can be activated. New values can only be set when the symbol is
active.
Inactive symbol (light background). Inactive means that settings for the
function which the symbol represents cannot be changed. From the settings menu,
pressing an inactive symbol will return the machine to the main menu.
A dot in the upper right--hand corner indicates that “Hot start” is ON.

FAULT CODES
Fault codes are used to indicate that a fault has occurred in the equipment. They
are shown in the display in the form of a symbol as follows:
Fault codes are updated every three seconds. The upper numeral in the
symbol is the number of the particular fault code: see Item NO TAG.
The lower figure indicates where the fault is:
0 = the control panel
2 = the power unit
4 = the remote control
The above symbol shows that the control panel (0) has lost contact with the power unit.
If several faults have been detected, only the code for the last fault to occur will be
displayed.
Press any of the function keys in order to clear the symbol from the display.
Symbols may be steady or flashing, depending on the type of fault.
Flashing symbols are highlighted with “o” in the list of fault codes.

Fault code descriptions
Description
Program memory error (EPROM)
The program memory has “lost” a value, i.e. the value in some particular memory location
differs from the original value.
This fault does not disable any functions.
Action: Restart the machine. If the fault persists, send for a service technician.
Microprocessor RAM error
The microprocessor is unable to read/write from/to a certain memory position in its internal
memory.
This fault does not disable any functions.
Action: Restart the machine. If the fault persists, send for a service technician.
External RAM error
The microprocessor is unable to read/write from/to a certain memory position in its external
memory.
This fault does not disable any functions.
Action: Restart the machine. If the fault persists, send for a service technician.
5 V power supply low
The power supply voltage is too low.
The microprocessor stops all normal activities while waiting to be turned off.
Action: Turn off the mains power supply to reset the unit. If the fault persists, send for a
service technician.
Intermediate DC voltage outside limits
The voltage is too low or too high. Too high a voltage can be due to severe transients on
the mains power supply or to a weak power supply (high inductance of the supply).
The power unit turns off automatically.
Action: Turn off the mains power supply to reset the unit. If the fault persists, send for a
service technician.
High temperature
The thermal overload cutout has operated.
The power unit turns off automatically, and cannot be restarted until the cutout has reset.
Action: Check that the cooling air inlets or outlets are not blocked or clogged with dirt.
Check the duty cycle being used, to make sure that the equipment is not being overloaded.
Low battery voltage +3V, (control panel)
The voltage of the memory retention battery in the control panel is too low.
This fault does not disable any functions.
Action: Send for a service technician.
+15V power supply, (wire feed unit and power unit)
The voltage is too high or too low.
Action: Send for a service technician.

Communication error (warning)
The CAN circuit’s error counter has too high a value, and contact with the control panel
may be lost. This can occur if the load is temporarily too high.
Action: Check the equipment to ensure that only one remote control unit is connected. If
the fault persists, send for a service technician.
Communication error
The CAN circuit’s error counter has too high a value, and welding is stopped.
This can occur if the load is temporarily too high.
Action: Check the equipment to ensure that only one remote control unit is connected.
Turn off the mains power supply to reset the unit. If the fault persists, send for a service
technician.
Messages lost
A message has overwritten another message. This error can be caused by frequent pushing of the panel pushbuttons while welding is in progress.
The welding process stops.
Action: Review the handling of welding programs during welding. Turn off the mains
power supply to reset the unit. If the fault persists, send for a service technician.
High open--circuit voltage
The open--circuit voltage has been too high.
Action: Turn off the mains power supply to reset the unit. If the fault persists, send for a
service technician.
Lost contact
The control panel has lost contact with the power unit.
The current activity stops.
Action: Check the cables. If the fault persists, send for a service technician.
Incorrect settings values in external RAM
This fault will be detected if the information in the battery--backed memory has become
corrupted.
Action: The fault will correct itself, but the data stored in the current memory position will
be lost.
Memory allocation error
The microprocessor is unable to reserve sufficient memory space.
This fault will generate fault code 26.
Action: Send for a service technician.
