    Default WIA AC DC 200i problem

    Hi, I have recently purchased a WIA AC DC 200i.
    The peak amps won't adjust on the machine even thou the adjustment on the hand piece
    is at max, I found that if I unplug torch lead from the machine the knob will adjust the peak amps.
    Any ideas my fault or machine fault would be appreciated. Thanks Ray.

    Default AC/DC tig

    Hello from BC.
    In the manual there is a procedure to change from local to remote current control and back. It varies with which version you have so read the book.
    Regards

    If you don't have it, here is the manual,

    https://www.welding.com.au/assets/do...CDC_Manual.pdf

    pages 14 & 15

    Sections
    15,15.1 and 15.2

    If that does not fix ,its a trip to the repairers then?

    Some machines I've worked with will only operate on a 'remote' control (foot pedal or torch rotary control) as a percentage of the current set at machine.
    So if you machine is at 50% of the machine's max output, then the remote will only give up to that value (ie 50% of 200A = 100A, remote gives 0A-100A roughly). I say roughly because if it's a potentiometer based adjustment pots can have resistance variance, so may be more or less.

    Or as others have said, RTFM.
