Thermal Arc® Introduces Lightweight PRO-WAVE® 185TSW AC/DC Inverter

St. Louis - February 21, 2003 - The new PRO-WAVE 185TSW from Thermal Arc® handles just about any TIG welding job while generating True-Square wave AC/DC output with full range capability from 185 amps down to 5 amps.

The PRO-WAVE 185TSW incorporates our new Voltage Reduction Device (VRD), technology designed to prevent accidental electric shock. It reduces the OCV when the power supply is not in use and eliminates the need for add on voltage reducers. It has no effect on arc starting.

Weighing less than 42 lbs., the PRO-WAVE 185TSW packs outstanding value and performance into a highly portable, surprisingly compact design. Standard features include Current Sloper, Current Pulser and variable frequency, wave balance control, and Lift or HF assisted starting. The 185TSW also has a
digital AMP/volt meter, gas solenoid valve and remote control capabilities. Thermal Arc backs the 185TSW with a three-year warranty.

All functions and controls are easily set through pushbutton switches on the front panel. Each function is marked by a symbol and lighted LED that clearly marks which function is being adjusted.

The 185TSW yields welds with superior purity and exceptionally clean appearance, as well as x-ray quality welds on all metals. Precise wave shaping allows the operator to control the cleaning, penetration, and heat input of any aluminum application.

The 185TSW is a member of Thermal Arc's complete family of "next generation" inverter power supplies for STICK (SMAW), TIG (GTAW), MIG (GMAW) and multi-process applications.

Thermal Arc is a division of Thermadyne® Holdings, a global welding and cutting products company with headquarters in St. Louis, Mo. The company is comprised of long-standing, market leading companies representing many of the most respected brand names in the welding and metal fabricating industry.
