New MIG Welding Power

Sources Use Single

Phase, AC Power

Regency 200 and 350 are the new family of single phase, constant voltage, DC power sources for gas metal arc welding (MIG) from Mill- er Electric Mfg. Co. Both models operate with a wide variety of con- stant speed and voltage sensing wire feeders, and are described in new literature.

Units have 14 pin Amphenol re- ceptacle, consistent with other Mill- er constant voltage machines, for easy direct connection to Miller con- stant speed wire feeders: Spoolmat- ic 3 feeder/gun, Miller 50 series, and

XR-15 and XR-30 push-pull sys- tems. For MIG spot welding, both models can be used with spoolmatic 1C/S gun and control with spot timer, or with spot controls installed with Miller wire feeders.

Both units have Cam-Lok output receptacles with mating plugs for secondary connections. Regency 200, rated 200 amps at 60 percent duty cycle, has six position voltage adjustment, high/low range for 12 different voltage selections. Regen- cy 350, rated 350 amps at 60 percent duty cycle, provides 25 voltage se- lections with a five position coarse, five-position fine voltage switch.

Volt meter and ammeter are stan- dard.
