- Onsite Maintenance
A built in VRD (Voltage Reduction Device) delivers added safety when operating in Stick or Lift-TIG mode and meets the requirements of site work. Fully compliant to Australian Standards AS 60974.1 & AS1674.2 CAT C.
At only 5.5kg, the Weldarc 185i can go wherever the job takes you, making it ideal for onsite maintenance.
The Weldarc 185i is tolerant to unconditioned power from generators. It has been optimised and tested for compatibility with appropriate portable generators.
The power source features a built-in thermal protection device that will activate if the machine is operated beyond its safe thermal operating zone.
Built-in “Hot Start™” feature in manual arc mode for even better arc starting.
Built in Arc Force, constantly monitors arc voltage and will boost output if low arc voltage occurs.
Easy to use lift arc starting for TIG welding. Eliminates scratch starting and tungsten electrode damage.
Power source cooling fan operates only when needed - reducing noise, energy use and the amount of contaminants pulled through the machine.
With a 3 year unlimited warranty, covering parts and labour, and supported by an Australia wide service network, you can be guaranteed you’re buying reliability and performance. *Power source only.
Generators used to power this equipment must have a minimum capacity of 10kW continuous.
Due to variation between generators by different manufacturers, it is impossible for WIA to validate operation from all generators. Therefore, WIA recommend that operation of equipment on the generator is confirmed before purchasing either welder or the generator.
