    I am not sure if it would work. But I will check into it. Thanks...Bob

    Question regarding the Sync210

    By the lit it looks like the upgrade is a free and complete download… is that true…???

    In this update:
    • Spoolmate 150 compatibility (serial numbers after ME390001J)

    • General bug fixes

    I got this clarification back from MILLER

    IMHO... This makes the Syncrowave 210 a much more attractive choice


    "Yes, the new update includes what normally would've been in the option cards.

    We started shipping new Syncrowave 210's with all the features activated and thought it better to offer a free update for the older units to bring it up to par with the new units sold today."

    The 30A is an excellent spolgun.... I have one on my MM350P.....

    I was thinking about a Spoolmate 150 since the MIG feature LOOKS operable. My machine now has the ability to select a Spoolmate 100 or 150 in the MIG menu. Maybe you can advise me on this. It appears to connect the Spoolmate 150, I would need a 50mm dinse flow thru connector and a 4 to 14 pin connector.
    Am hoping one of the Miller tech folks can answer most of this

    Section 5-5 through 5-7 of the manual has the how to but no part numbers so you can order them

    FWIW....I just installed the latest update May 18, 16

    https://www.millerwelds.com/support/...e/tig-software

    From what I can tell, on the DC side my pps went from 0-50 to 0-150 after the update (I believe this is exactly what the accessory DC pulse expansion card upgrade accomplished)

    On the AC side, the freq went from the factory 100hz to 60-150hz (I think this too was what the accessory AC expansion card upgrade accomplished)

    I purchased my machine without the MIG option and when I turned the selector knob to the MIG spot, I saw some message......I don't remember what it was........saying that this optionnot available. After the update, all of the MIG features are operable.
