  • Maxtron 450 - What is this for?

    I recently bought a 1995 model Maxtron 450. I have spent a fair amount of time reading through the manual and I have not been able to find out what the mystery switch and dial are for on the front of my machine. Any help would be Pictures below...

    the parameters are right there on the chart screened on the front of the machine

      Now how to use it? Does anyone know if there is more information on how to use it? How to connect a volt sense lead, if it will work with my feeder, etc?

            My understanding is .... it is for the Synergic Pulse function that works in combination with a "compatible wire feeder". You set the Pulse switch on, select program for material and wire being used, then when wire speed adjustments are made in the feeder, the "synergic" control automatically changes power supply settings. Special pulse mix gasses also need to be used 95Ar/5(O2 or CO2) Synergic connection is through the 14-pin connector

              These manuals are correct for your serial number equip...

              S-64M Manual (this is a pulse capable programmable feeder)

              Maxtron 450 Manual

              http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o2206e_mil.pdf

              from what I can see... it looks like you can pulse with this combo... (at least steel)

              looks like you have more reading to do...
