Electronic Engine Display

Electronic engine display simultaneously displays fuel level, engine hours, coolant temperature, oil pressure, battery volts, and engine RPMs. Also tracks oil change intervals and displays engine diagnostics for quick and easy servicing.

Infinite Arc Control

Infinite arc control allows the arc characteristics to be changed for specific applications in Stick, MIG and FCAW.

Auto Remote Sense™ (ARS)

ARS detects if a remote control is plugged into the 14-pin receptacle and eliminates confusion of a remote/panel switch.

The Vault

The Vault
The Vault allows for the ultimate control board reliability in CC/CV models. Hardened solid-state control technology, housed in a sealed vault. The vault's sealed connections are made through watertight plugs that make these components impenetrable to dust and moisture.

Deutz D2.9 L4 Tier 4 Final Compliant Diesel

Deutz D2.9 L4 Tier 4 Final Compliant Diesel
The cleanest/greenest power available. Utilizes Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) technology to keep the air clean with NO exhaust aftertreatment maintenance.

Low OCV Stick (VRD)

The new Low OCV stick welding function is a simple design that reduces the open-circuit voltage to 15 volts when the welding power source is not in use without compromising arc starts. This feature is now built into the Big Blue 500 Pro for increased operator safety.

Thermal Overload Protection

Thermal overload protection prevents machine damage if the duty cycle is exceeded or airflow is blocked.

Other Standard Features

Remote oil drain to prevent spills and make servicing easy, digital preset weld meters, automatic idle, and 120V block heater for cold environments.
