    Default x-treme 12 vs with lincoln 400 sae

    Hi all can I run x-treme 12 vs with lincoln 400 sae
    It says on the 400 sae tag that its variable ocv .

    I just got the 12 vs and a bottle of trimix
    I need to weld quite a bit of stainless and dont want to kill the 12 vs
    if the welder is not compatable.

    I kinda have the same problem I have a 12rc suitcase and was wondering if I could use it with a vantage 300 or 400 or do I have to use a ln-25?

    12rc requires a constant voltage setting on the machine its hooked to i believe. however the ln-25 should work no prob.

    The 12RC will NOT work on the Lincoln cause there is NO 24Vac to run it.

    OCV, merely means Open Circuit Voltage, zero to do with Constant Voltage which unless you have a CV module on the SAE, it's not there

    Thanks cruiser. I run it (12rc) with a tb302 and it seems to run great. Iam I doing things right? And why wouldn't a 12k machine be able to run it? It looks more and more the 350pp is the way to go it will run the vs and rc

    Every machine will run the VS suitcase, but only those having 24Vac will run a RC

    If the SAE 400 is variable voltage should I use the CC or CV setting on the 12-VS ?

    Also is it ok to reverse polarity when using the 12-VS ?

    CV mode

    And no reason to change polarity unless your running fluxcore
