INSTALLATION
4.1
General
The installation must be executed by a professional.
WARNING
This product is intended for industrial use. In a domestic environment this
product may cause radio interference. It is the user’s responsibility to take
adequate precautions.
PLW 255 has mains voltage compensation, which means that +/-- 10% variation in
the supply voltage produces only +/-- 0.2% variation in the welding current.
To reduce the voltage drop resulting from the use of long welding cables, a cable
with a larger sectional area than the one indicated under Technical Data on page 66
can be used.
When the power source is started, the cooling fans work at a reduced rotation
speed, partly to reduce the amount of dirt that can be sucked in and partly to ensure
a lower noise level.
When the power source requires increased cooling, the fans work at a high rotation
speed.
4.2
Location and connection
S
Place the welding power source so that the cooling air in-- and outlets remain
free.
S
Connect the torch and the shielding gas to the PLWB 401.
S
Connect the PLWB 401 and the return cable (see fig. on page 68).
S
Connect OCF 2D to PLWB 401 not to PLW 255.
S
Make sure the welding power source is connected to the right mains voltage and
that it is properly fused. Connect to earth according to applicable regulations.
Rating plate with connection data is located on the rear of the welding power
source.
The machine is now ready for use.

5.3
Remote control unit
The welding current for Plasma, TIG and MMA can be adjusted by way of a remote
control unit. The welding power source registers automatically when a remote control
unit is connected.
If the remote control is to include the whole current range, the current must be set to
max. on the welding power source.
Max. value = The reference value set on the welding power source.
5.4
Protection against overheating
Two thermal cut--outs prevent the power source being overloaded as a result of too
high temperature. If this should happen, the welding current is interrupted and the
yellow diode (L) goes on. (See page 68.)
When the temperature has gone down, the welding current circuit is reclosed and
the diode goes out.

Hz for non--pulsed welding with alternating current.
For plasma welding the maximum frequency is 70

N.B. When welding with pulsed alternating current,
the a.c. frequency is automatically set to 100 Hz!
The max. pulse frequency to be set is then 100 Hz!
13 Potentiometer for setting the balance
This potentiometer has double functions:
S For setting the balance between positive and
negative half--wave when welding with alternating
current to optimise the cleaning or the penetration.
(Turning right =>increased penetration.)
S For setting the time relation between the
background and the peak current when welding with
direct current.
(Turning right =>longer pulse current time.)
N.B. When welding with pulsed a.c. the time balance between the pulse current and the base current will automatically be 50/50%.
The relationship between positive and negative halfwave is adjusted in the same way as nonpulsating AC
welding.

Position
= MMA
In this position the welding power source is prepared for welding with coated
electrodes. The HF unit and the Lift--Arc are disconnected, and the hot--start function
is activated in order to supply incresaed current at the start.
Position
= HF unit ON
When pressing the torch trigger the gas starts flowing, the HF unit goes on,
generating an electric spark between the electrode and the welding material, the gas
is ionised and an arc is produced. When the arc is stable, the HF unit will
automatically be disconnected.
Position
= Lift--Arc
By Lift--Arc is meant that you place the torch with the electrode on the spot where
you want to start the welding, press the torch trigger and lift up the torch. In doing so
an arc is produced.
The current slowly increases up to the set value during the set “slope up” time. When
you want to finish welding, the contact is released and the current slowly decreases
to the set “slope down” time.
Place the electrode against the workpiece.
Press in the torch trigger.
Tilt the torch a little, lift and an arc is produced.
To stop, release the torch trigger.
Position
Two/four--stroke
Two--stroke means that the arc is struck when the torch trigger is pressed and
extinguished when it is released.
Four--stroke means that it is not necessary to keep the torch trigger pressed while
the welding is going on. The arc is struck by pressing an releasing the switch and is
extinguished by repeating the action.
Four--stroke with the possibility to switch between two currents (switching function).
Through short activation of the burner contact, the switching function gives rise to
switching between two adjustable currents.
If the burner contact is kept pressed in the current starts to slope down.

same way as for pulsed TIG welding.
S
Potentiometer (5) is used for stepless setting of the Hot--Start function,
potentiometer (6) for stepless setting of the Arc--Force function, and thereby the
control dynamics.
Depending on the electrode type to be used, direct current and polarity or one of
the alternating current alternatives can be selected by way of switch (4) without
shifting the welding cables.
The welding current can be set over a hand--operated remote control unit.

Connect the welding cable to the PLWB 401.
Set switch (1) to the desired position.
If you intend to use the keyhole welding function with PLWB 401, set switch (1)
to the trigger latch off position.
If a foot--operated remote control unit is to be used, set switch (1) to position
two--stroke.
NB. For direct current control over the foot--operated remote control unit, the
potentiometer (7) and (10) must be set to position 0.
A hand--operated remote control unit can be used for both two--stroke and
four--stroke to set the welding current.
Select striking method HF using switch (2).
Adjust the welding current using potentiometer (8).
Select the desired type of pulsing using switch (3).
For the shift function/pulsing, adjust the lower current value using potentiometer
(9).

Setting direct and alternating current
Direct current:
S
Set switch (4) to the position for direct current with negative polarity.
If pulsing has been selected:
S
Set the pulse current value using potentiometer (8).
S
Set the background current in per cent of the pulse current value using
potentiometer (9).
S
Set the pulse frequency using potentiometer (12).
S
Set the time relation between pulse and background current using
potentiometer (13).
Alternating current:
Two different types of alternating current can be set over switch (4):
S
A sine--wave type, characterised by low noise and a soft arc. Effective when low
frequencies are used!
S
A square--wave type, characterised by a hard and stable arc, resulting in a
somewhat higher noise level.
The arc is always struck by way of direct current which is then automatically
switched over to alternating current.
Increased alternating current frequency gives a concentrated and stable arc, suitable
above all when a low amperage is used and when welding in extremely thin plate.
The displacement (balance) of the half--wave in positive direction leads to increased
cleaning, and in negative direction to increased penetration.
(Turn potentiometer (13) more to the right for increased penetration!)
5.10
Forced disconnection
If the torch trigger or the foot--operated remote control unit has been activated and
no arc has been generated, the open circuit voltage is automatically disconnected
after 2 seconds. The same applies in the event of an arc interruption.
This function protects from:
S
Uncontrolled arc strike
S
Material damage
S
Shielding gas drop--out

MAINTENANCE
6.1
General
Note!
All guarantee undertakings from the supplier cease to apply if the customer himself
attempts any work in the product during the guarantee period in order to rectify any
faults.
6.2
Check--up and cleaning
Clean the welding power source once a year using
dry compressed air (reduced pressure). The dust
filter is to be checked up and cleaned regularly.
If the welding power source is used in a dusty and
dirty environment, the cleaning should be
performed more frequently.
For maximal service reliability it could be
advisable to let an authorised retailer service the
machine once a year.
