    If I was gonna ask for a feature or two on my Dynasty 200 DX it would be a sine wave setting and a few more max amps on the higher input voltages. Other than that it could use loosing a few more lbs still....it ain't that light yuh know

    Laiky:
    The wave form shaping is basically able to change the cleaning action on AC. It does this by changing how much of the Wave form is above or below the sine wave center line by percentage. If it is too high then it is going into the torch and burning up the tungsten or on the other side it is going to be very dirty and porous looking. I have welded some really ugly Aluminum and had little issue by turning the balance and float the crap to the top then rebrush it with a wheel and do another pass with less filler to clean it up to a nice ripple so its pretty like everyone likes.

    Peace,

    There are just certain characteristics to a plain old transformer style sine wave as opposed to a square wave that I like
    I have an old machine that welds very good on aluminum and is much more forgiving than my Dynasty.
    Some of the inverters made overseas offer this feature and I hear people saying they use it...I know I would.
    I have a VERY talented young man working for me now and I can't hardly keep him off of the old Airco....heck, it's 10 years older than he is!!
    You can set the hz on 60 and the balance on 50% but it still is not the same

    No way.

    It screws the Distributors for exactly the reason you stated- you'd buy the newest version and they are stuck with "Old" stock.


    Same thing happened with the release of the Passport Plus.

    I "think" i know what you are refering to. I got to use an old L-Tec and it was very different than the sync 250 and the dyn 200 on aluminum. It seemed to push the puddle, i would swear it made the puddle bowl shaped. Overall i found it harder to use, but it seemed to penetrate more. At least that was my impression. Have others had this experience? or am i crazy?

    I hope they come out with a new one and for the folks that just have to have the latest and greatest maybe I'll be able to pick up a 200dx cheap[fingers crossed].
