2 Evaluate your needs: input power, outputpower, generator power and portability.
Input powerDoes your machine need to be self-powered, or will AC powerbe available at the location where its primarily used?
For locations where an electrical hookup is not practical,consider a gas- or diesel-powered engine-drivenwelder/generator to supply welding and generator power.
For locations where AC power is available, you need toknow its type and whether its a match for the machineyoure considering:
Single-phase power is found in most homes and garages.Check to see if the machine youre considering requiressingle-phase power, and whether its voltage requirements(115 V or 230 V) are met by the electrical service at theintended location.
Three-phase power is common in industrial settings. Checkto see if the machine youre considering requires three-phase power and whether its voltage requirements are metby the electrical service at the intended location.
Output powerl Light industrial products are suitable for the homehobbyist or occasional user. They are designed to be easy tooperate, are affordably priced and typically have a 20 percentduty cycle and rated output of 230 amps or lower.
l Industrial products are suitable for applications that do not require high-volume production. They typically have a 40 to 60 percent duty cycle and/or rated output of 300 ampsor lower. Industrial products are an appropriate choice forprofessional welders.
l Heavy industrial products are suited to high-volumeproduction and/or welding of thicker materials. They typicallyhave a duty cycle of 60 to 100 percent and a rated output ofat least 300 amps. Heavy industrial products are designedwith the arc characteristics and product features professionalwelders demand for code-quality work.
Note: Units listed in more than one classification share attributes of both.
Generator powerOut in the field, you may need an engine-driven welder/generator to supply 120- or 240-volt AC power to run toolsand lights, or supply 12-volt DC power to charge automotivebatteries and jump-start vehicles. Millerwelder/generatorsare packed with power; larger units even offer option packagesthat add 10 to 20 kW of generator power.
PortabilityCan you bring the work to the machine, or does the machineneed to go to the work? Check the Product Guide pages fortypes of portability:
Shoulder strap, handles, running gear, carts, etc. Many engine-driven welding generators fit in the back of a
pickup truck, enabling them to be driven to wherever thewelding is needed. Heavy-duty trailers are also available forengine drives.
The Product Guides (at the start of each major section) brieflydescribe and compare power sources within that section.
About duty cycles
Duty cycle is an indication of how long a power source can continuously weld (at a specific amperage andvoltage) in a 10-minute period of time before it needs tocool down. For example, a machine with a 60 percentduty cycle at 300 amps and 32
