Arc force for tig?

Postby pavetim » Wed Mar 15, 2017 1:26 pm

Was going they my settings on my ecerlast 210ext and when i put pulse in it allows me to adjust arc force %. I am confused cause I thought arc force was only used in stick welding? What would I adjust arc force for in tig?

Page 19 seems to indicate that Arc Force (Dig) is focused on short circuit amperage drop, relevant to Stick. I have no clue why or how it would effect TIG welding :shock:

Set it to 0. I don't know if they ever offered an explanation in the manual, but however they have it wired, it changes the behavior of the TIG arc in an undesirable way, probably based on OCV? That's just a guess though.
