Question about Welding Equipment
I WANT TO ADD A REMOTE TO THIS MACHINE. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE REASTAT ON THE MACHINE YOU HAVE 2 LEADS. ALSO ONE IN THE CENTER THAT IS CONECTED TOT HE LEAD ON THE RIGHT SIDE. i HAVE A 3 WIRE REMOTE. WHAT WIRE GOES TO THE GREEN, RED, AND BLACK ON THE REMOTE CORD?
The short answer is that you can't do this with a Bobcat, you need a Trailblazer welder with a remote socket.
The reason that this isn't a good idea is that the wires you talk about are in the rotors exciter circuit, at full output there is going to be something like 7 amps flowing thru those wires, 'dya really think those wires on your expensive remote control will handle 7 amps?
The rheostat is a 100 watt one, think about holding a lit up 100 watt bulb in your hand...
If you really need remote current control you might try talking to your local Miller dealer, he will be able to check on trading your machine for a reconditioned Trailblazer for a reasonable price.
