The Welding power source is protected by a self resetting thermostat. The indicator will illuminate if the duty cycle of the power source has been exceeded. if the Over Heat light illuminates wait for the Over Heat light to extinguish before resuming welding.
The rated duty cycle of a welding power source, is a statement of the time it may be operated at its rated welding current output without exceeding the temperature limits of the insulation of the component parts. To explain the 10 minute duty cycle period the following example is used. Suppose a welding power source is designed to operate at a 15% duty cycle, 90 amperes at 23.6 volts. This means that it has been designed and built to provide the rated amperage (90A) for 1.5 minutes, i.e. arc welding time out of every 10 minute period (15% of 10 minutes is 1.5 minutes). During the other 8.5 minutes of the 10 minute period the welding power supply must idle and allowed to cool.
I have a 170HF inverter that was purchased recently when in HF tig mode is the arc suppose to jump from tungsten to job as mine doesn’t. Also it takes a while for the gas to shut off when finished welding. Was supplied a W4014600. Tig torch 26 with 4m lead. Also using a 2.4 tungsten don’t know if this is the issue?
The tig torch which you should be using with your Weldskill 170HF is part number W7003037..The torch which you currently own is suited to our Transmig 250i not our 170HF.
The new Welding Consumables Guide is available as an app as you very well know, you can find further information about it on this page.
The wishlist is an easy way for you to save a listing of your favourite items, and then print them for future reference. The wishlist will be kept like a shopping cart, so that next time you log in it will be remembered. In future we will be looking at integrating the wishlist and the where to buy section to create a streamlined experience, where we get you in touch with your local CIGWELD distributor. Stay Tuned!
