  • RDC PS-2 help needed

    Hello everyone,
    This is my first post, so be gentle.
    I have a Pulstar 450 (ser: JF954102) with a D-52D feeder (ser: JF954102). It welds really nicely. My problem comes from the, control remote(RDC PS-2), mounted on top of the feeder. The remote is hooked up through the 10 pin plug, and powered by the 4 pin. All the nobs and switches work, and the display changes when dials are turned. When I flip the power supply from standard to remote, It won't weld. It does this noodling thing where the wire turns red and won't actually strike an arc. Am I missing something? Can someone point me in the direction I need to look? Anybody have any Ideas? I would like to be able to control the welder from the feeder because the feeder is on a cart with 40 foot leads. I really don't want to have to walk back to the power supply everytime i change something or use the other gun.

    After downloading and reading through the manual. I did recalibrate the control voltage to 10 volts, but that still didn't work. Next is to cut the copper runs on board PC1. I'm hoping someone will jump in before I do something I cant undo.
