PIPEMASTER POWER SOURCE
Power Source/Controller for "Full Function" weld heads
Revolutionary, Not Evolutionary
The latest generation of Pipemaster power sources is the result of a new direction in power source design. The Model 515 brings the benefits of digital technology to the orbital welding customer: unparalleled accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. The new model is half the size and weight of previous models. Digital technology forever eliminates the need for periodic weld Head calibration - motor speeds and response characteristics remain accurate and stable regardless of wear, and weld Heads can be interchanged without time-consuming calibration.
Software upgrades can be sent as e-mail attachments and loaded using a standard USB portable flash drive "memory key" (provided). The Model 515 is "internet ready" for future enhancements such as a web-based diagnostic service.
Two autoranging versions are available: a lighter weight 115/230 VAC input model, or with a wider 115/480 VAC input range, to operate on any input voltage worldwide. Both operate on 1 or 3 phase, 50/60 Hz.
This handheld control is used to both program and remotely operate the power source. Designed to withstand hard use, the pendant incorporates a completely sealed, waterproof silicone rubber panel keypad, impervious to grinding debris and weld spatter. The color LCD display is protected by a tempered glass shield.
The intuitive switch layout allows the welder to make program override corrections without lifting his hood.
|Coolant Recirculator :||Detachable coolant recirculator mounts beneath power source with integral flow switch protection|
|Teach Mode:||Teach Mode speeds program development. Approximately parameter values are entered or copied from an existing program.|
|Programmable Overrides Provide Supervisory Control:||The welder may override programmed parameters but only within preset limits. Password protected override limits are set for each parameter (0-100% of programmed value).|
|Simplified Programming:||Specifying the weld Head to be used from a "dropdown" menu automatically selects the preferred programming mode - position or time. Time-based programming is generally preferred for weld Heads making simple fusion welds. Multipass pipe weld Heads are operated using position-based programming, eliminating calculations to determine when parameter changes must be made. A sensor in the weld Head provides position information. All welding parameters may be changed at each level.|
|Weld Monitoring/QC:||Additional documentation and notes can be added to weld programs and QC records, providing traceability to individual drawings, projects, and customers.|
