rom _nd_3/05
Warning: Protect yourself and others from injury — read and follow these precautions.
1-1. Symbol Usage
Means Warning! Watch Out! There are possible hazards
with this procedure! The possible hazards are shown in
the adjoining symbols.
Marks a special safety message.
Means “Note”; not safety related.
This group of symbols means Warning! Watch Out! possible
ELECTRIC SHOCK, MOVING PARTS, and HOT PARTS hazards.
Consult symbols and related instructions below for necessary actions
to avoid the hazards.
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 1-7. Read and follow all Safety Standards.
Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at
the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be present.
Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and repair this unit.
Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece or worktable as near the weld as practical.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent contact
with any metal object.
Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any single weld
output terminal.
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.
Do not touch live electrical parts.
Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats or covers
big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work or ground.
Do not use AC output in damp areas, if movement is confined, or if there is a
danger of falling.
Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on unit.
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!
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).
Properly install and ground this equipment according to its Owner’s Manual
and national, state, and local codes.
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.
When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first −
double-check connections.
Frequently inspect input power cord for damage or bare wiring — replace
cord immediately if damaged — bare wiring can kill.
Turn off all equipment when not in use.
Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
Do not drape cables over your body.
If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly with a separate cable.
Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground, or another electrode from a different machine.
Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged parts at
once. Maintain unit according to manual.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverters after stopping engine.
Stop engine on inverter and discharge input capacitors according to
instructions in Maintenance Section before touching any parts.
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these fumes
and gases can be hazardous to your health.
Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
If inside, ventilate the area and/or use local forced ventilation at the arc to
remove welding fumes and gases.
If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
Read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for metals, consumables, coatings, cleaners,
and degreasers.
Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an airsupplied 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.
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.
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.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
Shut off shielding gas supply when not in use.
Always ventilate confined spaces or use approved
air-supplied respirator.
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.
Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter lenses
to protect your face and eyes from arc rays and sparks when welding or
watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1 listed in Safety Standards).
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your helmet.
Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash, glare, and
sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant material
(leather, heavy cotton, or wool) and foot protection.
OM-4426 Page 1
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
HOT PARTS can cause severe burns.
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.
Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If this is not
possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can easily go
through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can cause
fire on the hidden side.
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).
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.
Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at contact tip
when not in use.
Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
Allow cooling period before working on equipment.
To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or wear
heavy, insulated welding gloves and clothing to prevent burns.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can damage
hearing.
Wear approved ear protection if noise level is high.
MAGNETIC FIELDS can affect pacemakers.
Pacemaker wearers keep away.
Wearers should consult their doctor before going
near arc welding, gouging, or spot welding operations.
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.
Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical
shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs.
Install cylinders in an upright position by securing to a stationary support or
cylinder rack to prevent falling or tipping.
Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits.
Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches, from your
person before doing any welding.
Never drape a welding torch over a gas cylinder.
Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder.
Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B for hot
work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
Never weld on a pressurized cylinder — explosion will result.
Use only correct shielding gas cylinders, regulators, hoses, and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them and associated parts in
good condition.
FLYING METAL can injure eyes.
Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve.
Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in use or
connected for use.
Use the right equipment, correct procedures, and sufficient number of persons to llift and move cylinders.
Read and follow instructions on compressed gas cylinders, associated
equipment, and Compressed Gas Association (CGA) publication P-1 listed
in Safety Standards.
Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding cause
sparks and flying metal. As welds cool, they can
throw off slag.
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields even
under your welding helmet.
1-3. Engine Hazards
MOVING PARTS can cause injury.
BATTERY EXPLOSION can BLIND.
Always wear a face shield, rubber gloves, and protective clothing when working on a battery.
Stop engine before disconnecting or connecting battery cables or servicing battery.
Do not allow tools to cause sparks when working on a battery.

1-8. EMF Information
Considerations About Welding And The Effects Of Low Frequency
Electric And Magnetic Fields
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.
OM-4426 Page 4
To reduce magnetic fields in the workplace, use the following
procedures:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them.
2. Arrange cables to one side and away from the operator.
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 Pacemakers:
Pacemaker wearers consult your doctor before welding or going near
welding operations. If cleared by your doctor, then following the above
procedures is recommended.

LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent être
dangereux.
UN CHOC ÉLECTRIQUE peut tuer.
Un simple contact avec des pièces électriques peut provoquer une électrocution ou des blessures graves. L’électrode
et le circuit de soudage sont sous tension dès que l’appareil
est sur ON. Le circuit d’entrée et les circuits internes de
l’appareil sont également sous tension à ce moment-là. En
soudage semi-automatique ou automatique, le fil, le dévidoir, le logement des
galets d’entraînement et les pièces métalliques en contact avec le fil de soudage
sont sous tension. Des matériels mal installés ou mal mis à la terre présentent un
danger.
Ne jamais toucher les pièces électriques sous tension.
Porter des gants et des vêtements de protection secs ne comportant pas de
trous.
S’isoler de la pièce et de la terre au moyen de tapis ou d’autres moyens isolants suffisamment grands pour empêcher le contact physique éventuel avec

Ne pas se servir de source électrique à courant électrique dans les zones humides, dans les endroits confinés ou là où on risque de tomber.
Se servir d’une source électrique à courant électrique UNIQUEMENT si le
procédé de soudage le demande.
Si l’utilisation d’une source électrique à courant électrique s’avère nécessaire,
se servir de la fonction de télécommande si l’appareil en est équipé.
Des précautions de sécurité supplémentaires sont requises dans des environnements à risque comme: les endroits humides ou lorsque l’on porte des
vêtements mouillés; sur des structures métalliques au sol, grillages et échafaudages; dans des positions assises, à genoux et allongées; ou quand il y a
un risque important de contact accidentel avec la pièce ou le sol. Dans ces cas
utiliser les appareils suivants dans l’ordre de préférence: 1) un poste à souder
DC semi−automatique de type CV (MIG/MAG), 2) un poste à souder manuel
(électrode enrobée) DC, 3) un poste à souder manuel AC avec tension à vide
réduite. Dans la plupart des cas, un poste courant continu de type CV est recommandé. Et, ne pas travailler seul!
Couper l’alimentation ou arrêter le moteur avant de procéder à l’installation, à
la réparation ou à l’entretien de l’appareil. Déverrouiller l’alimentation selon la
norme OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 (voir normes de sécurité).

manuel d’utilisation et aux codes nationaux, provinciaux et municipaux.
Toujours vérifier la terre du cordon d’alimentation − Vérifier et s’assurer que le
fil de terre du cordon d’alimentation est bien raccordé à la borne de terre du
sectionneur ou que la fiche du cordon est raccordée à une prise correctement
mise à la terre.
En effectuant les raccordements d’entrée fixer d’abord le conducteur de mise
à la terre approprié et contre-vérifier les connexions.
Vérifier fréquemment le cordon d’alimentation pour voir s’il n’est pas endommagé ou dénudé − remplacer le cordon immédiatement s’il est endommagé −
un câble dénudé peut provoquer une électrocution.
Mettre l’appareil hors tension quand on ne l’utilise pas.
Ne pas utiliser des câbles usés, endommagés, de grosseur insuffisante ou
mal épissés.
Ne pas enrouler les câbles autour du corps.
Si la pièce soudée doit être mise à la terre, le faire directement avec un
câble distinct − ne pas utiliser le connecteur de pièce ou le câble de retour.
Ne pas toucher l’électrode quand on est en contact avec la pièce, la terre ou
une électrode provenant d’une autre machine.
Ne pas toucher des porte électrodes connectés à deux machines en même
temps à cause de la présence d’une tension à vide doublée.
N’utiliser qu’un matériel en bon état. Réparer ou remplacer sur-le-champ les
pièces endommagées. Entretenir l’appareil conformément à ce manuel.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur inhalation
peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
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.
Si la ventilation est médiocre, porter un respirateur anti-vapeurs approuvé.
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.
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.
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.
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 ACCUMULATIONS DE GAZ risquent de provoquer des blessures ou
même la mort.
Fermer l’alimentation du gaz protecteur en cas de non utilisation.
Veiller toujours à bien aérer les espaces confinés ou se servir d’un respirateur d’adduction d’air homologué.
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 intenses (ultraviolets et infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlures dans les yeux et sur la peau. Des
étincelles sont projetées pendant le soudage.
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).
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux même sous votre casque.
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.
Porter des vêtements confectionnés avec des matières résistantes et ignifuges (cuir, coton lourd ou laine) et des bottes de protection.
OM-4426 Page 5
LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un incendie 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.
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.
Ne pas souder dans un endroit là où des étincelles peuvent tomber sur des
substances inflammables.
Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et de métal
chaud.
Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent facilement
passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites fissures et des
ouvertures.
Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à proximité.
Le soudage effectué sur un plafond, plancher, paroi ou séparation peut déclencher un incendie de l’autre côté.
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).
Brancher le câble 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 et d’incendie.
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.
Ne pas utiliser le poste de soudage pour dégeler des conduites gelées.
En cas de non utilisation, enlever la baguette d’électrode du porte-électrode
ou couper le fil à la pointe de contact.
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.
Avant de souder, retirer toute substance combustible de vos poches telles
qu’un allumeur au butane ou des allumettes.
Suivre les recommandations dans OSHA 1910.252(a)(2)(iv) et NFPA 51B
pour les travaux à chaud et avoir de la surveillance et un extincteur à proximité.
DES PARTICULES VOLANTES
peuvent blesser les yeux.
Le soudage, l’écaillement, le passage de la pièce à la bros-
se en fil de fer, et le meulage génèrent des étincelles et des
particules métalliques volantes. Pendant la période de refroidissement des soudures, elles risquent de projeter du laitier.
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux ou un écran facial.
DES PIÈCES CHAUDES peuvent
provoquer des brûlures graves.
Ne pas toucher à mains nues les parties chaudes.
Prévoir une période de refroidissement avant de travailler à
l’équipement.

Les porteurs d’un stimulateur cardiaque doivent d’abord
consulter leur médecin avant de s’approcher des opérations de soudage à l’arc, de gougeage ou de soudage par
points.
Si des BOUTEILLES sont endommagées, elles pourront exploser.
Des bouteilles de gaz protecteur contiennent du gaz sous
haute pression. Si une bouteille est endommagée, elle peut
exploser. Du fait que les bouteilles de gaz font normalement partie du procédé de
soudage, les manipuler avec précaution.
Protéger les bouteilles de gaz comprimé d’une chaleur excessive, des chocs
mécaniques, des dommages physiques, du laitier, des flammes ouvertes, des
étincelles et des arcs.
Placer les bouteilles debout en les fixant dans un support stationnaire ou dans
un porte-bouteilles pour les empêcher de tomber ou de se renverser.
Tenir les bouteilles éloignées des circuits de soudage ou autres circuits électriques.
Ne jamais placer une torche de soudage sur une bouteille à gaz.
Une électrode de soudage ne doit jamais entrer en contact avec une bouteille.
Ne jamais souder une bouteille pressurisée − risque d’explosion.
Utiliser seulement des bouteilles de gaz protecteur, régulateurs, tuyaux et raccords convenables pour cette application spécifique; les maintenir ainsi que
les éléments associés en bon état.
Ne pas tenir la tête en face de la sortie en ouvrant la soupape de la bouteille.
Maintenir le chapeau de protection sur la soupape, sauf en cas d’utilisation ou
de branchement de la bouteille.
Utiliser les équipements corrects, les bonnes procédures et suffisamment de
personnes pour soulever et déplacer les bouteilles.

Proposition californienne 65 Avertissements
Les équipements de soudage et de coupage produisent des fumées et
des gaz qui contiennent des produits chimiques dont l’État de Californie
reconnaît qu’ils provoquent des malformations congénitales et, dans
certains cas, des cancers. (Code de santé et de sécurité de Californie,
chapitre 25249.5 et suivants)
Les batteries, les bornes et autres accessoires contiennent du plomb et
des composés à base de plomb, produits chimiques dont l’État de Californie reconnaît qu’ils provoquent des cancers et des malformations
congénitales ou autres problèmes de procréation. Se laver les mains
après manipulation.
2-7.
L’énergie électromagnétique risque de provoquer des interférences pour l’équipement électronique sensible tel
que les ordinateurs et l’équipement commandé par ordinateur tel que les robots.
Veiller à ce que tout l’équipement de la zone de soudage soit compatible
électromagnétiquement.
Pour réduire la possibilité d’interférence, maintenir les câbles de soudage aussi courts que possible, les grouper, et les poser aussi bas que possible (ex. par terre).
Veiller à souder à une distance de 100 mètres de tout équipement électronique sensible.
Veiller à ce que ce poste de soudage soit posé et mis à la terre conformément à ce mode d’emploi.
En cas d’interférences après avoir pris les mesures précédentes, il incombe à l’utilisateur de prendre des mesures supplémentaires telles que
le déplacement du poste, l’utilisation de câbles blindés, l’utilisation de filtres de ligne ou la pose de protecteurs dans la zone de travail.
Pour les moteurs à essence :
Les gaz d’échappement des moteurs contiennent des produits chimiques dont l’État de Californie reconnaît qu’ils provoquent des cancers
et des malformations congénitales ou autres problèmes de procréation.

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
OM-4426 Page 8
procédures suivantes :
1. Maintenir les câbles ensemble en les tordant ou en les enveloppant.
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 stimulateurs cardiaques
Les porteurs de stimulateur cardiaque doivent consulter leur médecin
avant de souder ou d’approcher des opérations de soudage. Si le médecin
approuve, il est recommandé de suivre les procédures précédentes.

6-2. Description Of Front Panel Controls (See Section 6-1)
1 Process/Contactor Switch
See Section 6-4 for Process/Contactor
switch information.
2 Remote Receptacle
Use receptacle to connect remote control or
wire feeder.
When a remote voltage/amperage control is
connected to the Remote receptacle, the
Auto Sense Remote feature automatically
switches voltage/amperage control to the remote control (see Sections 5-10 and 6-8).
With remote voltage/amperage control connected, weld output in CC mode is determined by a combination of front panel and remote control voltage/amperage settings. In
CV mode, weld output is controlled through
remote control only.
If no remote voltage/amperage control is
connected to the Remote receptacle, the
front panel Voltage/Amperage control adjusts voltage and amperage.
3 And 4 Displays
Displays can show weld process information
(voltage and amperage) or maintenance information (hourmeter, oil change countdown, or rpm).
Meter Weld Functions: In Wire modes,
Voltmeter displays preset weld voltage
when not welding. Meters display actual voltage and amperage when welding and for five
seconds after welding has stopped.
In Stick and TIG modes, Voltmeter reads
ON and Ammeter displays preset amperage
when not welding. Meters display actual voltage and amperage when welding and for five
seconds after welding has stopped.
Meter Engine Maintenance Functions:
See inset from maintenance label.
5 Fuel Level Indicator
With Engine running or Engine Control
switch in Run or Run/Idle position, LED’s indicate fuel left in tank.
6 Voltage/Amperage Control
Use control to select weld voltage or
amperage. Control may be adjusted while
welding.
With Process/Contactor switch in any Stick
or TIG setting, use control to adjust amperage. With Process/Contactor switch in any
Wire position, use control to adjust voltage.
When a remote voltage/amperage control is
connected to Remote receptacle RC4, control sets the maximum amperage in Stick and
TIG modes, but has no effect in MIG modes.
7 Engine Control Switch
Use switch to start engine, select speed, and
stop engine. In Run/Idle position, engine
runs at idle speed at no load, and weld/power
speed under load. In Run position, engine
runs at weld/power speed.
Use switch in combination with meters to determine total engine hours and hours until
next recommended oil change (see items 3
and 4 earlier in this section).
The unit
will not return to idle speed
when the remote contactor is on and
Process/Contactor switch is in any Wire
position. The unit will return to idle speed
in all other modes.
8
Engine Choke Control
Use control to change engine air-fuel mix
when starting engine.
To Start: pull out choke and turn Engine
Control switch to Start position. Release
switch and slowly push choke in when
engine starts.
If
the engine does not start, let the
engine come to a complete stop before
attempting restart.
During cold weather some gasoline en-
gines encounter difficulties that are easily remedied. See Section 6-3 and 8-12.
To Stop: turn Engine Control switch to Off
position.
9 DC Polarity/AC Switch (AC/DC Models
Only)
Do not switch under load.
Use switch to select AC weld output or polarity of DC weld output.
6-3. Cold Weather Engine Operation
1
Engine Control Switch
Carburetor Icing
1
Infrequently
Loaded
Carburetor icing causes the unit to drop below the normal idle speed and then
stall. This condition occurs when the temperature is near freezing and the relative humidity is high. Ice forms on the throttle plate and inner bore of the carburetor. The engine typically restarts without problems but soon stalls again.
Treat gasoline with a fuel de−icer product (isopropyl alcohol).
Place the Engine Control switch in the Run position.
Run engine only when expecting to frequently load it.
Breather Icing
Frequently
Loaded
Oil breather/pulse line icing occurs in severe cold (continuously below 0F).
Moisture accumulates in the oil from piston ring blow−by if the engine is extensively idled. This may cause vacuum line freezing, oil breather tube freezing
or ice in the carburetor. All of these cause operating problems. Due to ice in
the lines, the engine may not restart until it is warmed to above freezing.
Load engine and reduce idle times to prevent engine shutdowns.
Use an electric fuel pump to avoid pulse line freezing.
Install engine cold−weather kit.
Both Kohler (1-800-544-2444) and Robin (1-800-277-6246) offer kits for cold
weather operation. The user can install these kits. Both kits pull heated air from
the muffler surface into the carburetor and shut the cold air off. This increases
engine temperature during operation in both idle and high speed.
When the ambient temperatures become warmer (above 45_F) the air
flow will have to be returned to normal.

6-4. Process/Contactor Switch On AC/DC Models
1
803 571−A / 216 170−A
1
Process/Contactor Switch
Stick Positions:
Weld output terminals are energized
when Process/Contactor switch is
in an Electrode Hot position and the
engine is running.
The unit will not return to idle speed
when Process/Contactor switch is in a
Wire position and the remote contactor
is on (closure between pins A and B on
remote receptacle).
Use switch to select weld process and weld
output on/off control (see table below and
Section 5-10).
Place switch in Remote positions to turn
weld output on and off with a device connected to the remote receptacle.
Place switch in Electrode Hot positions for
weld output to be on whenever the engine
is running.
Wire Positions:
Use Wire positions for MIG welding using a
voltage sensing wire feeder (Electrode Hot)
or wire feeder using remote control.
Use Stick positions for stick (SMAW) and
air carbon arc (CAC-A) cutting and
gouging.
When switch is in a Stick mode, select one
of four dig settings to provide additional amperage during short arc length conditions
and help prevent electrodes from “sticking”.
See Stick position descriptions following
(reading L to R):
Soft Arc (E 7018) (Position 1) - This setting
provides a low dig/arc force setting for
smooth weld performance. A stable weld
puddle with little arc “snap” gives excellent
weld bead appearance with minimal
spatter.
Medium Soft Arc (Position 2) - This setting
provides a low to medium dig/arc force that
gives a slightly more fluid weld puddle,
more arc “snap”, and reduces the potential
for electrode sticking at shorter arc lengths.
Medium Stiff Arc (Position 3) - This setting
provides medium dig/arc force for open root
vertical up joints or joints that do not require
additional current for fit up inconsistencies.
Stiff Arc (E6010) (Position 4) - This setting
provides a high dig/arc force for open root
vertical down joints where additional
current is needed to compensate for tight
joint fit up without the need to increase
overall welding current. This setting is recommended for those who prefer a very stiff
arc with 6010 electrodes.
The dig circuit is disabled when switch is in
Wire or TIG positions.
TIG Positions :
TIG − Remote On/Off − Use this position for
AC or DC TIG welding using remote on/off
control.
Electrode Hot − Lift-Arc™ w/Auto Crater™
TIG (DC only) - With switch in this position,
normal open-circuit voltage is not present
between the electrode and workpiece. A
solid-state contactor energizes after the
electrode touches
the
workpiece,
preventing overheating, sticking, or contamination of the electrode (see Sections
6-5 and 6-6).
End the arc using either the Auto-Crater or
Auto-Stop feature (see Section 6-7).

Workpiece
Turn gas on. Touch tungsten
electrode to workpiece at weld start
point. Hold electrode to workpiece
for 1 second, and slowly lift electrode.
Arc is started when electrode is lifted.
Normal open-circuit voltage is not
present before tungsten electrode
touches workpiece; only a low sensing
voltage is present between electrode
and workpiece. The solid-state output
contactor does not energize until after
electrode is touching workpiece. This
allows electrode to touch workpiece
without overheating, sticking, or
getting contaminated.
Application:
Lift-Arc is used for the DCEN GTAW
process when HF Start method is not
permitted.
Do NOT Strike Like A Match!

Non-Resistive Load
Equipment with a motor is a non-resistive load and requires approximately six times more power while
starting the motor than when running
(see Section 11-8).
Rating Data
Rating shows volts and amperes, or
watts required to run equipment.
Amperes x Volts = Watts
Example 1: If a drill uses 4.5 amperes at 115 volts, calculate its running power requirement in watts.
4.5 A x 115 V = 520 W
The load applied by the drill is 520
watts.
Example 2: If three 200 watt flood
lamps are used with the drill from Example 1, add the individual loads to
calculate total load.
(3 x 200W) + 520 W = 1120 W
The total load applied by the three
flood lamps and drill is 1120 watts.

To find starting amperage:
Step 1: Find code and use table to
find kVA/HP. If code is not listed,
multiply running amperage by six to
find starting amperage.
Step 2: Find Motor HP and Volts.
Step 3: Determine starting amperage (see example).
Welding generator amperage output must be at least twice the
motor’s running amperage.
(kVA/HP x HP x 1000) / Volts =
Starting Amperage
Example: Calculate starting amperage required for a 230 V, 1/4 HP motor with a motor start code of M.
Volts = 230, HP = 1/4, kVA/HP =
11.2
(11.2 x 1/4 x 1000) / 230 = 12.2A
Starting the motor requires 12.2
amperes.
S-0624
11-9. How Much Power Can Generator Supply?

Limit Load To 90% Of
Generator Output
Always start non-resistive (motor)
loads in order from largest to smallest, and add resistive loads last.

5 Second Rule
If motor does not start within 5
seconds, turn off power to prevent
motor damage. Motor requires
more power than generator can
supply.

emergencies or power outages.
1 Utility Electrical Service
2 Transfer Switch (Double-Throw)
5
Essential
Loads
Switch transfers the electrical load
from electric utility service to the
generator. Transfer load back to
electric utility when service is restored.
Install correct switch (customersupplied). Switch rating must be
same as or greater than the branch
overcurrent protection.
3 Fused Disconnect Switch
Install correct switch (customersupplied) if required by electrical
code.
4 Welding Generator Output
Generator output voltage and wiring must be consistent with regular
(utility) system voltage and wiring.
Connect generator with temporary
or permanent wiring suitable for the
installation.
Turn off or unplug all equipment
connected to generator before
starting or stopping engine. When
starting or stopping, the engine has
low speed which causes low voltage and frequency.
5 Essential Loads
Generator output may not meet the
electrical requirements of the premises. If generator does not produce
enough output to meet all requirements, connect only essential
loads (pumps, freezers, heaters,
etc. − See Section 11-4).
