Easy-to-Use Interface
The control panel of this advanced TIG unit is divided into 5 clear sections, making it easy to choose the options and settings you need for fast set up and excellent arc control. The machines internal communication is entirely digital to give you high accuracy and repeatability.

All control settings are centrally located. Easy-to-use buttons provide slope down, pulse current, background current, pre-gas, post-gas, pulse, and duty options. Heliarc also allows you to store and recall up to 60 programs.

Choose between Stick, TIG 2- and 4-stroke mode (trigger latch), TIG spot, and trigger-enabled peak to background current, which can be used as a manual pulse to decrease heat and better control puddle fluidity while welding. In stick mode, the submenu allows for access to Hot Start and Arc Force settings.

Specific AC settings include wave form control for pulsing, frequency, and balance.

Easily choose your preferred start, with or without high-frequency and remote control on/off. Additionally, remote minimum and maximum can be pre-set in a submenu.

ADDItIONAl FEAtuREs.
Immediate Control of Heat Input
Controlling the heat in your arc is easy with either the optional FC-5C foot control or TIG torch mounted remote current control. Additionally, these machines feature a manual pulsing heat control function to optimize operator control during welding. Simply pressing the torch switch quickly reduces the current to a pre-set base and pressing it again returns it to the set current.

Inverter Technology
State-of-the-art inverter technology means you benefit from energy savings and superior functionality right from the start, all in a package that is lighter, smaller, and less expensive than old technology SCR machines.

Pulsing
Pulsing allows for lower heat dissipation, better control of the weld pool, less plate deformation, and more even welds. Both AC and DC pulsing is used to regulate heat input and control the pool, making it perfect for welding thin materials. DC pulsing, with square wave, cuts current peaks and provides symmetric power, a stable arc, and perfect interfusion between base and filler material. The duty setting allows for an easy adjustment between pulse and background time.

Energy Efciency
Lower power requirements mean you save money and get a faster return on your investment. Enjoy the convenience of lower current draw, a smaller and more manageable power cord, and the ability to use a more compact generator when working in the field.

AC Frequency
Allows control of arc width and penetration, making both wider arcs with less penetration or narrow arcs with deep penetration and faster speeds achievable.

AC Balance
Controlling arc cleaning and penetration is easy with the AC Balance setting, as is regulating the heat on the electrode.

Wider arc with lower frequency

Narrow arc with higher frequency

60 Program Storage
Increase your productivity by easily storing up to 60 parameter sets for quick changes while working.

High-Frequency Start
Count on high-quality, accurate, and exact starts. In AC, the arc is designed so that the high frequency is only needed upon start, reducing electrical noise and risk of interference with surrounding electronics. When welding in areas where electronic disturbance is an issue, the high frequency can be switched off entirely and an electronic Live TIG start can be used.

Compliance with the Highest Standards


Heliarc 281i, 283i, and 353i have been designed to meet the highest international standards (c CSA us, CAN/CSA-E60974-1-00 (R2010)).
