INTRODUCTION
Note!
This product is solely intended for arc welding.
Note:
All warranty undertakings given by the supplier cease to apply if the customer
attempts to rectify any faults on the machine during the warranty period.
LTN 255 are rectifiers designed using inverter technology and are intended for TIG -welding and welding using coated electrodes.
Inverter technology contributes towards low power consumption, a low weight and
compact dimensions.
The advanced electronics with microprocessor control provides, amongst others,
quick regulation and top class welding characteristics.
LTN 255 is equipped with ARC PLUS, a new type of control that with MMA welding
provides a more intensive, more concentrated and smoother arc. It reacts quicker
after a short circuiting drop transfer, which reduces the risk of the electrode sticking.
In addition, the machine is equipped with Arc Force, which means that the power
source’s dynamics can be adjusted, softer or harder depending on the type of electrode and the welder’s preference.
ARC PLUS -- because of the regulator’s good characteristics it is only necessary to
change the Arc Force settings in exceptional circumstances.
When drop welding using stainless steel electrodes a special feature on the machine
can be activated to facilitate welding.
LTN 255 is available in two designs, one with a central connector and one with an
OKC connector for a TIG torch.
LTN 255 is supplied complete with a 5 metre mains cable, 5 metre return cable, gas
hose and hose clips. Machines with a central connector are also fitted with a safety
bar to protect the connectors from impact.
As an accessory there is a loop handle to fit on the machines which acts as a cable
reel as well protecting the control panel. There are also two carriages available for
transportation with a gas cylinder and cooling unit.

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.

LTN 255 are equipped with mains voltage compensation, which means that a ¦10 %
variation in the mains voltage only results in a ¦0,2 % variation in the welding current.
To reduce the voltage drop when using a long cable it can be advisable to select a
heavier cable cross section.
1. Place the equipment in a suitable place and make sure the rectifier is not covered or set--up so that cooling is prevented.
2. Make sure the machine is connected to the correct mains voltage.
Earth according to applicable directives.
3. Connect the shielding gas.
4. Connect the TIG torch and the return cable or the MMA welding cables.
The machine is now ready for welding.

To take your mind off the risk of overloading the machine it has been equipped with
an integrated thermostat that trips if the temperature becomes too high.
When this occurs the welding current is cut out and the yellow indicating lamp comes
on. In addition, the error code ”E13” is displayed. When the temperature has
dropped the thermostat automatically resets.

Control panel
On the front of the machine there is a control panel for the selection of functions and
setting of parameters. This consists of a display, setting knob, LEDs and push--buttons.
By using the push--buttons you can move between the different functions. The selected function is indicated by respective LEDs coming on.
One line at a time is set. The current line is indicated by a red LED. Movement between lines takes place using the red arrow keys.
Movement within each line takes place using the green arrow keys.
All settings are made using the setting knob. The LEDs to the right of the display
indicate the actual unit (ampere/volt/seconds). On the lines where only a function is
selected, ”------” is shown on the display.

set current when the trigger is released ”2”. When the trigger is
pressed in again ”3” the machine slopes down to the pilot current. The
arc is extinguished when the trigger is released ”4”.

Four different sets of welding data settings can be stored in the machine’s memory, two for TIG mode and two for MMA mode.
The following can be stored:
TIG: selected option from line 3 (continuous or pulsed current) All settings on line 5.
MMA: Welding current
The welding data memory is changed using the green arrow
keys.
Changes can also be made by quickly pressing the torch trigger, regardless of whether you are welding or not.
To activate the possibility of jumping between programs both the
green arrow
keys should be pressed simultaneously.
When the jump function is activated an indicating lamp comes on.
O 1--2 If the 4 step trigger action is selected, quickly pressing the
trigger will switch the welding data. The same thing applies in 2 step
trigger action if you are not welding. During welding, using 2 step
trigger action, you release the trigger momentarily to change the
welding data.
Aristotig has battery backup so that the settings remain in memory
even when the machine is switched of or disconnected from the
power supply.

Other functions
Drop welding (MMA)
Drop welding can be used when welding with stainless steel electrodes.
The technique involves the arc switching between igniting and extinguishing to allow
better control over the heat transfer. The electrode only needs to be lifted a little for
the arc to be extinguished.
The machine should be in the current setting mode when the function is activated.
Press both of the green arrow
keys simultaneously for 2 seconds and the
symbol ”--_--” indicates that the function is activated.
This mode remains active even if the machine is switched off. The machine is reset
for normal welding again using the same method and ”------” is then indicated on the
display.
Arc Force (MMA)
The Arc Force setting changes the machine’s dynamic. A softer or harder arc can be
obtained. The machine should be in the current setting mode when activating the
function by pressing the two red arrow keys
simultaneously for 2 seconds. The
display shows a value between 0 and 100. The higher the value the harder the arc.
Press one of the buttons and the power source returns to the normal operating
mode. The set Arc Force value remains. Different Arc Force settings can be stored in
the machine’s two sets of welding data memory.
Pulse time/Pause time (TIG)
Normally the setting range for these parameters is 0.02--5.0 s. Through pressing the
two green arrows simultaneously for 2 seconds, times down to 0.001 s can be set.
This extended setting range remains until the machine is reset using the same
method. When activating the function the machine should be in the mode for setting
the pulse time/pause time. Note that times below 0.250 s are displayed without the
decimal point.
Remote control
Using the remote control socket on the machine the current can be remotely regulated in TIG and MMA modes.
If pulsed current is selected in TIG mode, it is the pulsed current that is remotely
regulated. The set value from the remote control is shown on the display by stepping
to the position where the current should be set when not using the remote control.
Switching to the remote mode takes place automatically when the unit is connected.
A
This is confirmed by the LED coming on. O
(NOTE! the pins L and M in the remote control’s connecting plug must be strapped
for automatic connection to take place).
The following remote controls can be connected:
PHA1, PHA2, PHA5, PHB1, PHB2, PHC2 and FS002.
NOTE!
When using FS002 the slope--up and slope--down times should be set to 0 sec.

MAINTENANCE
Generally, Aristotig 255 do not require any maintenance. Normally, it is sufficient to
blow out the machine using clean, compressed air annually, and the dust filter should
be cleaned regularly.
If the machine is set up in dusty or dirty environments the machine and dust filter
should be cleaned more often.
Dismantling the filter.

Memory error, random test of battery backed up RAM
Memory error, variable value outside limit in battery backed up RAM
Low battery voltage
Incorrect supply voltage 20 V
Incorrect supply voltage --15 V
High temperature, thermal switch protection
Current--servo error
The error indications are shown if the machine is not able to maintain the set
current, for example, while MMA welding with an extremely long arc. The
indication should disappear after welding for a few seconds under normal
conditions.
If any of these error codes are displayed permanently or recur frequently the machine should be taken to an authorized ESAB service workshop to be rectified.
