STAND BY. In the models where it is present, Stand By allows significant savings in energy consumption. In fact, electronics can equip our machines with a sort of artificial intelligence, which perceives when a machine is really welding, with a welding arc present, and when, in the absence of an arc, the machine is not operating. If no welding operation is registered for more than 30 continuous seconds, the machine automatically switches to a stand-by position, ready to reactivate itself when the electrode comes into contact with a piece of metal to be welded.

POWER GEN. All models manufactured by EPS are compatible for use with motor generators. The input circuit is sized to tolerate the common voltage variations characteristic of current generators, automatically interrupting and restoring power to the welder when values become dangerous. This function operates within a tolerance of ± 15% with respect to standard values. For total protection even beyond these values, models equipped with VOLT CONTROL® should be used.

HOT START. The moment the electrode comes into contact with the metal surface to be welded, a pulse triggers a pre-heating of the electrode within a few thousandths of a second. This, together with an increase in the current by a slightly higher value than the preset value, allows easier ignition even for inexperienced welders.

ARC FORCE. During welding, this function manages a continuous real-time exchange of information between the welding arc and the machine logic. This allows micro-adjustments of the current, which, depending on the distance between the electrode and the surface, help to keep the arc stable and uninterrupted.

ANTISTICK. This control records the welding parameters and is able to recognise when the electrode is sticking. As an immediate reaction it activates a current of a slightly lower value than the preset one, facilitating ungluing.

T-PROTECTION. All machines are protected against possible malfunctions caused by high working temperatures. Thermal switches located at strategic points in the machine temporarily suspend machine operation when critical values are reached.

ENERGY SAVING. The INVERTER technology used in the construction of our systems allows us to better proportion consumption with the actual welding current used. A careful reduction of heat loss also contributes to the fact that our models consume on average 40% less than conventional welders.

COOLING FAN. All our machines are equipped with forced air circulation cooling via automatically driven electronic fans.
