ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced the LAF DC power sources. The three-phase, fan-cooled DC welding power sources are designed for mechanized SAW or GMAW. They can be used in combination with the company's A2-A6 equipment and A2-A6 process controllers (PEK or PEI).
All welding parameters can be monitored and adjusted from the front panel of the process controller. The range of welding current can be extended by connecting two power sources in parallel.
The power sources are prepared for communication using most standard protocols, including TCP/IP (LAN), Anybus, Profibus, CAN, or straight communication with a PLC. Optional communications modules also are available.
