WARNING
PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS FROM POSSIBLE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. KEEP CHILDREN AWAY. PACEMAKER WEARERS KEEP
AWAY UNTIL CONSULTING YOUR DOCTOR. DO NOT LOSE THESE INSTRUCTIONS. READ OPERATING/INSTRUCTION MANUAL BEFORE
INSTALLING, OPERATING OR SERVICING THIS EQUIPMENT.
Welding products and welding processes can cause serious injury or death, or damage to other equipment or property, if the operator does not
strictly observe all safety rules and take precautionary actions.
Safe practices have developed from past experience in the use of welding and cutting. These practices must be learned through study and
training before using this equipment. Some of these practices apply to equipment connected to power lines; other practices apply to engine
driven equipment. Anyone not having extensive training in welding and cutting practices should not attempt to weld.
Safe practices are outlined in the American National Standard Z49.1 entitled: SAFETY IN WELDING AND CUTTING. This publication and other
guides to what you should learn before operating this equipment are listed at the end of these safety precautions. HAVE ALL INSTALLATION,
OPERATION, MAINTENANCE, AND REPAIR WORK PERFORMED ONLY BY QUALIFIED PEOPLE.
1.01
Arc Welding Hazards
7. Use fully insulated electrode holders. Never dip holder in water to
cool it or lay it down on the ground or the work surface. Do not
touch holders connected to two welding machines at the same
time or touch other people with the holder or electrode.
8. Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
WARNING
9. Do not wrap cables around your body.
10. Ground the workpiece to a good electrical (earth) ground.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
11. Do not touch electrode while in contact with the work (ground)
circuit.
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 semi-automatic 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.
12. Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged
parts at once.
1. Do not touch live electrical parts.
13. In confined spaces or damp locations, do not use a welder with
AC output unless it is equipped with a voltage reducer. Use
equipment with DC output.
14. Wear a safety harness to prevent falling if working above floor
level.
15. Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
2. Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
3. Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats
or covers.
WARNING
4. Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or
servicing this equipment. Lock input power disconnect switch
open, or remove line fuses so power cannot be turned on
accidentally.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin; NOISE can damage
hearing. Arc rays from the welding process produce
intense heat and strong ultraviolet rays that can burn
eyes and skin. Noise from some processes can damage
hearing.
5. Properly install and ground this equipment according to its Owner’s
Manual and national, state, and local codes.
6. Turn off all equipment when not in use. Disconnect power to
equipment if it will be left unattended or out of service.
1. Wear a welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter (see
ANSI Z49.1 listed in Safety Standards) to protect your face and
eyes when welding or watching.
2. Wear approved safety glasses. Side shields recommended.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
3. Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash
and glare; warn others not to watch the arc.
WARNING
4. Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant
material (wool and leather) and foot protection.
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
5. Use approved ear plugs or ear muffs if noise level is high.
Sparks and spatter fly off from the welding arc. The flying
sparks and hot metal, weld spatter, hot workpiece, and
hot equipment can cause fires and burns. Accidental
contact of electrode or welding wire to metal objects
can cause sparks, overheating, or fire.
WARNING
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous to your health.
1. Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these
fumes and gases can be hazardous to your health.
2. Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
1. Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breath the fumes.
3. Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc.
If this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
2. If inside, ventilate the area and/or use exhaust at the arc to remove
welding fumes and gases.
4. Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can
easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
3. If ventilation is poor, use an approved air-supplied respirator.
5. Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
4. Read the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instruction for metals, consumables, coatings, and
cleaners.
6. Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition
can cause fire on the hidden side.
7. Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks or drums.
5. Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while
wearing an air-supplied respirator. Shielding gases used for
welding can displace air causing injury or death. Be sure the
breathing air is safe.
8. 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 and fire hazards.
9. Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
6. 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.
10. Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
7. 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 if necessary, while
wearing an air-supplied respirator. The coatings and any metals
containing these elements can give off toxic fumes if welded.

NOTE
Considerations About Welding And The Effects of Low
Frequency Electric and Magnetic Fields
The following is a quotation from the General Conclusions Section of
the U.S. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment, Biological Effects of Power Frequency Electric & Magnetic Fields - Background
Paper, OTA-BP-E-63 (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing
Office, May 1989): “...there is now a very large volume of scientific
findings based on experiments at the cellular level and from studies
with animals and people which clearly establish that low frequency
magnetic fields and interact with, and produce changes in, biological
systems. While most of this work is of very high quality, the results
are complex. Current scientific understanding does not yet allow us
to interpret the evidence in a single coherent framework. Even more
frustrating, it does not yet allow us to draw definite conclusions about
questions of possible risk or to offer clear science-based advice on
strategies to minimize or avoid potential risks.”
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 cable around the body.
4. Keep welding power source and cables as far away from
body as practical.
ABOUT PACEMAKERS:
The above procedures are among those also normally
recommended for pacemaker wearers. Consult your
doctor for complete information.

lorsque le niveau de bruit est élevé.
3. Si la ventilation est inadequate, portez un respirateur à adduction
d’air approuvé.
5. Ne travaillez dans un espace confiné que s’il est bien ventilé; sinon,
portez un respirateur à adduction d’air. Les gaz protecteurs de
soudage peuvent déplacer l’oxygène de l’air et ainsi causer des
malaises ou la mort. Assurez-vous que l’air est propre à la respiration.
6. Ne soudez pas à proximité d’opérations de dégraissage, de

INTRODUCTION
PORTAFEED VS 212
12.CC/CV MODE SWITCH: The CC position provides a
voltage sensing wire feed speed mode of operation
for use with constant current (CC) power sources. The
CV position provides a constant wire feed speed mode
of operation for use with constant voltage (CV) power
sources.
NOTE
This switch does not select a CC or CV mode
of operation. The mode of operation is set by
the type of power source being used.
2.10 Power Source Compatibility
Since the PORTAFEED VS 212 operates on arc voltage, it
will work with most constant current (CC) or constant
voltage (CV) DC type power sources.
When connected to a PORTAFEED VS 212, the maximum
allowed open circuit voltage (OCV) of the power source
is 100 VDC. Open circuit voltages exceeding 100 VDC
will damage or shorten the life of the unit.
NOTE
Because of the high open circuit voltage
associated with most CC power sources, it is
recommended to place the PORTAFEED VS
212 power switch in the OFF position when
not welding. This procedure will prolong the
life of electrical components connected to the
power input lines.
13.INPUT CIRCUIT BREAKER: This circuit breaker
provides complete system protection for the wire
feeder in the case of a fault or overload condition.
14.HUB TENSION BOLT: The hub tension bolt is used to
adjust the wire spool tension which acts as a
mechanical brake to assist in the stopping of the
welding wire at the completion of a weld.
When using the PORTAFEED VS 212, there must be at
least 15 VDC between the output terminals of the power
source during standby and while welding. Otherwise, the
unit will not have enough input voltage to operate properly.
A contactor is a standard component of the PORTAFEED
VS 212 and allows the welding wire to remain electrically
cold until the gun switch trigger is depressed. This
contactor is rated for 425 amps of welding current at a
60% duty cycle. If the weld current or duty cycle rating is
exceeded, the contactor will be damaged or its life
shortened.

OPERATION
4.01 Prewelding Procedure
Follow all installation instructions for the welding power
source, the welding gun, and the VS 212 CC/CV wire feeder
before attempting to weld.
1. Make sure all necessary connections have been made
(refer to Connections in the Installation chapter of this
manual).
5. Depress the inch switch (if equipped) or gun switch
and adjust the wire feed speed to the desired value by
means of the wire feed speed control. The wire feed
speed control can be adjusted during setup or while
welding.
!
2. Turn ON the power source and the wire feeder.
3. Set the CC/CV mode switch on the wire feeder to the
proper position (refer to paragraph 12, CC/CV Mode
Switch on page 2-9 and figure 4-1).
WARNING
If the gun switch is depressed, the wire feeder
will feed electrically hot welding wire. If this
hot welding wire touches the work piece, a
welding arc will be established.
Art # A-07254
6. Adjust the voltage control (on a CV machine) or current
control (on a CC machine) to the desired value. The
voltage or current control can be adjusted during setup
or while welding.
CC
High
CV
Low
7. If using a CV power source, the output contactor on

4.02 Welding Procedure
!
4.03 Welding In CC Mode vs. CV
Mode
WARNING
1. Welding in CC Mode: When welding with a constant
current (CC) power source, changes in wire feed speed
will affect welding voltage.
In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding,
the welding wire, wire reel (if used), input
guide, feed rolls, output guide, feedhead, and
welding gun metal parts are all ELECTRICALLY
HOT.
To adjust the amount of welding current from the CC
power source, a control knob on the power source or
an optional control knob on the wire feeder will have
to be adjusted.
The solid state control of a “slow run-in” circuit
automatically reduces the initial wire feed speed when
operating with a CC power source. This initial reduction
in wire feed speed will compensate for the high open
circuit voltage associated with CC power sources and
improve arc starting performance.
Refer to Functional Timing Diagram on the previous page.
1. To start the weld, position the welding gun above the
work piece and depress the gun switch trigger. The
solid state control then enables the gas valve, wire
feed motor, and power source.
B. Welding in CV Mode: When welding with a constant
voltage (CV) power source, changes in wire feed speed
will affect welding current. Changes in wire feed speed
can be obtained by adjusting the wire feed speed
control knob.
2. To end the weld, release the gun switch trigger while
pulling the welding gun away from the work piece.
The solid state control then disables the gas valve,
wire feed motor, and power source.
NOTE
To adjust the amount of welding voltage from the CV
power source, a control knob on the power source or
an optional control knob on the wire feeder will have
to be adjusted.
After the weld is completed, it is recommended
to pull the welding gun away from the work
while releasing the gun switch. This allows the
welding arc to partially extinguish at the work
piece which reduces the arcing at the contactor
contacts. Using this procedure will lengthen
the life of the contactor contacts especially
when welding at high amperage.
4.04 Theory Of Operation
Refer to the Connection and Schematic Diagram in
theAppendix chapter of this manual.
3. At the end of the work day or when welding has been
completed, it is recommended that the gas be SHUT
OFF at the cylinder, and the wire feeder and power
source be turned OFF.
Input power is supplied through the on/off switch (S1)
and input circuit breaker (CB1) to the bridge rectifier
(CR1). CR1 ensures that the proper polarity input voltage
is fed into the PC boards independent of the welding
polarity.
When the gun switch on the welding gun is pulled, a short
is provided on the gun switch receptacle (J4) causing the
wire feed motor (B1) to turn feeding wire, the gas valve
(L1) to open allowing gas flow, and the contactor (K1) to
close making the welding wire electrically hot.
When the gun switch on the welding gun is released, the
short on the gun switch receptacle is removed causing
the wire feed motor to stop feeding wire, the gas valve to
close stopping gas flow, and the contactor to open making
the welding wire electrically cold.

PORTAFEED VS 212
4.05 Adjusting Burnback Time
Burnback time is set at the factory, but the motor control
printed circuit board contains a component that permits
adjustment of burnback time.
Burnback time relates to the amount of welding wire remaining at the end of the welding gun after the welding
process ends. Increasing burnback time results in less
wire remaining at the end of the welding gun at the end of
the weld. Decreasing burnback time results in more wire
remaining at the end of the welding gun after the welding
process ends.
WARNING
3. Locate component R68 (Burnback) on the motor control printed circuit board (refer to Figure 4-3). The best
procedure is to make only slight adjustments until the
amount of burnback is acceptable. Component R68
has a single turn (300°) range of adjustment.
To increase burnback time, adjust component R68
clockwise.
To decrease burnback time, adjust component R68
counterclockwise.
4. Replace the internal cover.
5. Replace the wire spool hub (refer to 3.03 Adjustment
Of Spool Tension in Section 3 of this manual).
4.06 Wire Feed Speed Ranges
ELECTRIC SHOCK CAN KILL. Make certain the
power source and wire feeder are both turned
OFF before beginning the procedure.
The range of the wire feed speed adjustment knob on the
front panel can be set to either High or Low. The High/
Low switch is located on the inside panel next to the CC/
CV switch. Refer to figure 4-4.
1. Using a nut driver or socket, remove the wire spool
