  • Millermatic 35 wiring oddity

    I picked up a MM35 serial #JK656786. It was said to be in use in a production facility up until about 2 months ago, when they closed down. I don't know what operation they were using it for. Ziptied to the 220v power cord for the machine is an additional 110v cord that runs inside and goes to CR1 and a relay and then exists the machine with a female 110v cord end. I'm trying to figure out what they were trying to accomplish. I'll add some more pics in a little while, hopefully that will clarify things.

    This is what's in place for CR1, has this already been replaced?

        Upon closer inspection, that 110v cord runs to the 24v transformer, then to a relay that is connected to a sensor that is aimed at the wire spool. Evidently they were using the movement of the spool to control power to whatever was connected to the 110v cord coming off the back of the machine.

        i believe I'm going to remove all that stuff prior to using the machine.

          Might have been some sort of turntable or positioner... Steve

            I would wind the cord up and leave it as is if it worked ok.
