Although the full benefits of ArcReach technology are realized only when an ArcReach power source/engine drive is connected to an ArcReach wire feeder or stick/TIG remote, both components are capable of working with conventional welding equipment — so owners can confidently begin investing in ArcReach technology at any pace, even if it’s one power source and one wire feeder at a time.
Additional ArcReach Benefits:
— When ArcReach communication is established between the wire feeder or stick/TIG remote and an ArcReach power source, the system automatically selects the appropriate process based on the polarity detected — reducing the operator’s need to access the power source directly.
Automatic Return to Panel Settings
— When ArcReach communication is terminated, the system will automatically return to the previous power source panel settings.
Remote Override of Power Source Controls
— Connecting an ArcReach wire feeder or stick/TIG remote to an ArcReach power source locks out any changes to the weld process, voltage or amperage at the power source, preventing accidental changes while ensuring complete operator control is at the feeder or remote.
