SpoolGun 140 to use with AHP AlphaTIG 200X 200-Amp AC DC Tig/Stick Welder
Need help I have the AHP AlphaTIG 200X 200-Amp AC DC Tig/Stick Welder which has a 7 pin connection. I would like to use the longevity SpoolGun 140 with my unit but the spool gun has a 4 pin connector. Is there an adaptor I can use to get this working or is there a re-wire I can do? Thank you
cbronton, welcome to the forum.
Thank you, looking forward to learning more
The spool gun 140 runs 2 different circuits in the connector, the activation switch and the motor's power supply. To fit this torch to your tig welder you would need a way of adjusting the voltage your motor receives and also a new way of getting current and gas flow to the power cable.
Then you have the issue of will this even work if you could hook it up. The type of current supplied to most tig and stick welders, it is constant current based on amperage with fluctuating voltage depending on arc length. Mig welders have a constant voltage current supply with the amperage fluctuating depending on the length of wire from the tip and the wire speed you have selected.
