Pipeline MPS4000 Power Source For Multi-Pass GMAW/FCAW Pipe Welding

The MPS 4000 is a digital inverter power source for GMAW/FCAW process welding applications. The integral weld head controller operates all Pipeliner weld head models. The MPS 4000 provides synergic control of electrode speed and power output – the welder has only to change electrode speed and the power supply will adaptively change the output parameters to maintain a stable process.

Features

  • Multi-pass welding of pipes
  • Operates all variants of Magnatech Pipeliner weld Heads (FCAW/GMAW process)
  • 400 Amp output
  • Autoranging power input eliminates all internal modifications
  • Pulsed/spray modes
  • Integral switch prevents welding without torch gas flow
  • Coolant recirculator with integral flow switch protection
  • Meets applicable NEMA, CE, CSA standards
  • Pendant allows remote operation
  • Synergic operation of electrode speed/power output
  • Factory optimized stored programs for most materials
  • Program development service available for special alloys
  • Outdoor job site usage (IP23 rating)
  • Cart with bottle rack
