    Default 200 DX Can't DCEN Stick ??

    What Broccolli said - just swap your leads and your good to go!

    Use the advanced polarity control feature. (APC = A Plug Change).
    Miller stuff:
    Dialarc 250 (1974)
    Syncrowave 250 (1992)
    Spot welder (Dayton badged)

    Appears my first "guess" was correct. Just took asking in the right place to get an authoritative answer. :-)

    Direct from Miller:
    It is possible to stick weld DCEN on the 200DX, you will just have to swap the work lead and stinger on the front of the machine. When set up in stick mode with the stinger and work lead according to the book you will be in DCEP, swapping the leads will switch your polarity.

    Additionally from Miller:

    The 200 DX will A/C stick as well.

    Note: I don't care if anyone wants to A/C or not. :-)

    Default Straight polarity on stick

    My question exactly! I'm no expert-but as the new owner of a Dynasty 200-why does he want to do that? I am not being sarcastic-just want more info. I was taught that straight polarity was for shallow penetration. Why not use the tig for that ?

    Maybe because he wants to STICK weld and get shallower penetration than DCEP.

    Just a guess.

    There are lots of reasons someone might want to STICK weld rather than TIG weld something.
