Release the torch trigger after the crater is well filled, and the machine will stop working. Downslope time control (10): The downslope time can be adjusted between 0 to 10 seconds.
  • Page 10 OPERATORS’ MANUAL · TIG SERIES R160A SC-A5 Arc force current control (12): Applicable to TIG250/TIG400 only. You may adjust the arc force upon your requirement in MMA welding. This arc force control knob is used to control welding performance. Especially, it can be used together with the welding current control knob under low current to adjust the arc ignition current conveniently, not controlled by the welding current control knob.
