Lincoln High Freq 250 amp need tips on how to use

I bought a 250 amp High Freq code 6769-wp machine with no power sorce but I have a old 250 amp idealarc AC DC machine. Can I use this power sorce with my High Freq unit? How is this unit hooked up and used? I would like to get an owners manual also.

RE: Lincoln High Freq 250 amp need tips on how to use

A hi-freq. (HF) is used to superimpose a high voltage-low amperaqe current into the welding circuit to initiate an arc and or maintain a continuous HF circuit when using alternating current. This unit is used to modify an existing piece of CC arc welding equipment so that scratch starting is no longer required.

This unit will enable your machine to weld aluminum or magnesium, etc. I highly recommend you contact Lincoln Electric (easy to find on the web). I'm 99.9% sure that HF unit will work on your old Idealarc power source.

Good luck and have fun.
