|More arc-on time and reduced exposure to workplace hazards for operators can be realized using ArcReach because less time is spent going back to the welding power supply to set process and arc voltage.
System automatically changes to MIG/FCAW (with gas) if electrode positive polarity is detected or FCAW (no gas) if electrode negative polarity is detected, when ArcReach communication is established between the feeder and the XMT – reducing the need to access the power source.
Automatically Return to Panel Settings
System automatically returns to XMT setting when ArcReach communication is terminated. For example, if the XMT is set to gouging at 350 amps and an ArcReach feeder is connected, the XMT will go to a MIG/FCAW process. If the feeder is disconnected, the XMT will go back to its previous setting (gouging at 350 amps).
Improved Weld Quality
|Operators can precisely set arc voltage at the feeder and monitor the actual arc voltage and current delivered to the weld using the digital meters on the feeder. This removes guesswork when it comes to adhering to weld procedures.
Remote Override of XMT
When an ArcReach feeder is connected to an XMT the feeder has full control and the XMT controls are disabled. While under ArcReach control, process and V/A adjustments are locked out, preventing accidental changes by personnel other than the welding operator.
ArcReach-equipped power sources and wire feeders work with non-ArcReach equipment; however the complete ArcReach benefit is only realized with the ArcReach system.
