Thread: Generic Voltage and Wire Speed Settings

  1. Default Generic Voltage and Wire Speed Settings

    So I have a new 200E.

    I am in the process of mapping the dashes on the dials to real world measurements (FPM and voltage) and for that I have a question. I am currently using a 110 circuit but will be upgrading to a 220 as soon as I figure out how to do it without electrocuting myself. I am wondering if the voltage readings I am getting now will change when I switch to the 220 circuit. Common sense says yes, but very little of the situations I have faced in welding follow common sense, at least to me.

    And this question I'm sure is answered somewhere already, but I can't find it.

    The 200E doesn't have a settings chart on the door for voltage and wire speed. But it occurs to me that these settings are not necessarily welder specific settings, but rather a function of the wire size and material size, type, etc. So the setting for .035 on 1/4" carbon steel should more or less be the same across all welders (MIG, Fluxcore). Am I correct in this assumption? If so, then I would expect somewhere you can find a document that details these settings for a wide range of wires sizes, material types and sizes, no? If anyone can point me to such a document, I'd be appreciative.
