Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has announced that the Dynasty® 200 AC/DC GTAW/SMAW and Maxstar® 200 DC GTAW/SMAW power sources now feature Blue Lightning™ technology to help provide consistent high-frequency arc starting from 200-amp to microthin, 1-amp applications. The operator enters the chosen tungsten size, from 0.020 in. to 0.125 in., and the power source feature sets the optimal starting parameters, eliminating operator guesswork.
In addition, the Dynasty 200 now features advanced AC waveforms to optimize arc characteristics for various applications and operator preferences. Depending on the waveform selected—advanced square wave, soft square wave, sine wave, or triangular wave—users can tailor the arc for characteristics such as a hard, driving arc; a smooth, soft arc with good puddle control and wetting action; or a punch of peak amperage with minimized overall heat input to reduce distortion.
