Interested in GO ANYWHERE
MIG, FCAW, or TIG Welding?

 

We have just what you need to use your constant current underhood or free standing engine driven ZENA welding power generator as a power supply for:

  • your existing constant voltage/constant current compatible MIG suitcase type spool feeder/torch, OR
  • your existing MIG spool gun, OR
  • for DC TIG welding, with your existing TIG torch.

    Use a Spool Gun or Spool Feeder with your welder

If you don't already have a portable MIG setup, we stock a special configuration Ready Welder spool gun which we factory equip with a special ZENA spool gun adapter. Because it's perfectly matched with a special version of our ZENA spool gun power supply, this portable MIG spool gun (our part # ZRW10000,CS) is lighter and more compact than other Ready Welder units. It's also less expensive than buying each item separately. Priced below the costs of either item purchased separately, if you don't already have a spool gun, this is the way to go!

Adapters for many popular models of MIG and TIG torches are available


FOR EXAMPLE:

If you have a constant voltage Spool Feeder or Spool Gun

Two different adapters are available for constant voltage spool feeders and spool guns (including the popular Ready Welder MIG spool gun). These adapters include an isolated solid state regulated DC to DC power converter which serves to provide voltage for the spool feeder's (or the spool gun's) wire feed motor. When the adapter is installed, the wire feed switch on the MIG torch (or a separate power button attached to the torch handle) controls welding power On/Off function as well as wire feed On/Off function. A power control dial which controls welding power (amperage) is attached to the spool feeder case or, in the case of a spool gun adapter, the dial is built into the adapter/power supply module itself.

In addition to now being able to operate your spool feeder any where you can take your ZENA welder, you now have instant power control and, thanks to the fingertip power On/Off control, a much safer welder. The adapters also provide electrical switching contacts to control gas valves and other related functions.

If you have a constant current compatible Spool Feeder or Spool Gun

Two different adapters are available. When the adapter is installed, the wire feed switch on the MIG torch (or a separate power button attached to the torch handle) controls welding power On/Off function as well as wire feed On/Off function. A power control dial which controls welding power (amperage) is attached to the spool feeder case or, in the case of a spool gun adapter, the dial is built into the adapter/power supply module itself.

In addition to now being able to operate your spool feeder any where you can take your ZENA welder, you now have instant power control and, thanks to the fingertip power On/Off control, a much safer welder. The adapters also provide electrical switching contacts to control gas valves and other related functions.

If TIG is what you need

Again, two different adapters are available. Both provide On/Off control by means of a foot switch. In one a dial is provided for power control and in the other the power control function is built in to the foot switch assembly -- creating a complete foot operated welding control assembly.

If desired, a torch mountable push button may be substituted for the foot switch (On/Off) power control.

Note that the ZENA mobile welding systems TIG interface does not include a sparking system to facilitate TIG arc starting and that your TIG arc must be started by scratching. Normal care not to stick the TIG electrode to the material and contaminate your weld joint is required.

Note, also, that the output of the ZENA power generator is DC, not AC, so AC TIG welding is not possible -- only DC TIG. DC TIG welding is not recommended for welding thin aluminum. DC is perfect for TIG welding other materials. But, going strictly "by the book", AC should be used for TIG welding aluminum, not DC. With this said, we have had customers report that they have achieved good results welding aluminum, however, we can not guarantee that this will hold for all cases.


Variations on the MIG or TIG controls can also be used for stick welding

Frequently used in man lifts, our power control interfaces can be used to provide, for example, foot switch control of power generation and/or panel mounted power control dials -- making it possible to use "standard" electrode holders instead of ZENA's combination electrode holder/welding control. If you application needs a special user interface, just call us -- it's quite possible that we have just what you need "on the shelf".

GO TO MIG & TIG ADAPTER SPECS


Just like the other ZENA welding system components, our interface adapters are built for heavy duty commercial use

Your MIG or TIG adapter will carry our standard three (3) year limited warranty which does not exclude commercial or marine use. Built to meet or exceed military and underground mining equipment specifications, no other line of welding products better meets the needs of people who need access to superior, high-power welding equipment that can operate reliably and safely in remote locations.

NOTE:
Constant Current / Constant Voltage? These are terms which refer to the type of welding current produced by a given welder. In most cases, stick, TIG, and high end MIG welders are constant current. Constant voltage current is usually used in MIG welders where the welding current is also used to power the wire feed motor (which would otherwise be damaged by the higher voltages found in constant current welders).
Duty cycle is the welder specification which defines the number of minutes, within a 10 minute period, during which a given welder can safely produce a particular welding current. (For example, with a 30% duty cycle welder, you have to wait 7 minutes for every 3 minutes of welding.)

NOTE: These adapters work with MIG, FCAW, and TIG equipment designed to work with engine driven welders made by Miller, Lincoln, Hobart, Century, Esab, HTP, Mitsubishi, Thermal Arc, Tweco, Forney, Mobi Weld, Premier Power, Mobi Arc, and other companies. When comparing specifications, you will find that our 150A welding power generator is comparable to, and will do the same job as, for example, a Miller 225 Bobcat welder, a Hobart 250A welder, a Century 200A welder, or a Lincoln Ranger 8 welder. Of course, 160A, 175A, 180A, 275A, or even 300A, or 400A welders would be also in the same category.

NOTE2: These adapters are perfect for service trucks (particularly popular are Ford Chevrolet and Dodge Diesels) and all types of 4x4's (including Jeep, International, and Toyota), this welder can also be installed on all types of heavy equipment, including backhoes, front end loaders, track loaders, forklifts, and tractors as well as all types of utility vehicle.
