  • Dynasty 280

    My Airgas rep called me today and told me about the new Dynasty 280 and asked how many I wanted.
    I said 3
    He said they are in the new catalog. I searched the web for a few minutes and came up emptyhanded.
    I see there is a CST280 already, so I'm guessing this is gonna be in the same case as the 200?
    Sounds promising to me!

    Yep, I guess there was a demand for an in between model, and like several of thier other $$ tech models, its sim card software upgradeable

    More handy for a tech to t-shoot with the sd cards, as the direct errors can be downloaded to the card

        Apparently it is not capable of operating off of 115 volt. A big downfall for a unit that is to be portable, guess i will have to keep my 200 for now.

          ???? don't see that as much of a downfall on a machine that maxes at 280amps

            230A @ 60% duty cycle. 1 or 3 Phase. Sweet.

            Just when I thought I was about set equipment wise, Miller goes and produces almost exactly what I've been asking for for nearly two years.

              It would be nice to have the 110V. option. But then, it would be nice if it had a soft icecream dispenser too. I'll have to wait to see the price, though. If it's closer to the 350 than the 200....I dunno.

                [email protected]% and 52lbs for the machine only. Compare that to the sync250's [email protected]% and 378lbs

                The price tag is probably going to be the kicker. How far north of $4000 will it be?

                Wonder what this will do to the price and availability of used dynasty200s? (previously high and few)

                  A tremendus amount of capabiity in a very compact package..... it is just begging for an ultra compact lightweight watercooler... for a wp-20 type torch.... an air cooled torch would just not be right on this unit......
                  and a huge cooler would betray all of the engineering that went into the Dyn 280 to fit all of that into such a small footprint......

                    I was lucky to demo the DX model a few months ago.

                    If you look at the top of the control panel you will see the SD card port. This is a huge development. Diagnostics, reprogramming, software upgrading, possibilities are endless, wow.

                    Then look closely at the basic model. They were calling this the EZ model a couple of months ago. It is just AC/DC with power knob. Somewhat like the Diversions. This can kick the Diversion guys up the ladder.

                    Looked like they jammed this into the Dynasty 200 chassis. These machines have balls.

                    I'm keeping my 200, but I want one of these too.

                      The output/DC curve for the 280 actually looks higher than that for the Dynasty 300 DX.

                      At 60% DC the Dynasty 300 was rated at 225A in AC and only about 190A DC.

                      And all this on a 30A, 240V single phase circuit.

                        Very interesting. They are now rating the line load in 208 V 3-phase for some units. I know from experience the 200DX runs fine on 208 V 3-phase because that is what my generator delivers (low wye).

                        Yes, I tried it at 200 amps with a 3/16" electrode in SMAW. Generator pulled it fine. I couldn't see the % rated current meter so no idea of the draw.

                          The wife caught me looking at the brochure. She said "How many welders do you need?!!!"

                          I said "How many shoes do you need?"

                          I'm not sure I made the correct point. She probably thinks the shoe budget just increased to match the welder budget.

                            I have to wonder how many times Lincoln offered software upgrades...
                            I've been burneda few times with upgradeable stuff that never had upgrades made available. Or worse software broken out of the box...needing an upgrade to make it usable

                              This thing is perfect except for one thing, the ability to run on 115volt at a limited output. I've made more money with my Dynasty200dx plugged into available 115volt power than 230. Miller I would've sold the 200 and bought this except for that one missing feature. Would like to know the ac frequency range on the dx model and if it has independent ep/en adjustment like the 350 and 700 does. I hope you can also buy the one with the 115 recepticle for a cooler without buying a water-cooled tig runner package.Keep up the good work.
