After several years of research, customer input and technological design work, Everlast has developed and released its new top-tier Typhoon class of TIG/Stick welders. Designed to compete head to head in the next generation of elite level AC/DC TIG and Stick welding products, the Typhoon 230 offers one of the best combinations of features and specifications for true next-level performance. The new Typhoon 230 begins by setting a new class standard with 70% duty cycle at maximum output. It also leads the class with it's new, large 5.1" HD LCD screen (diagonal full measurement) with crystal-clear resolution and brightness. The unit features a sharp, high contrast layout of functions and parameters on a single screen layout which is almost completely devoid of complicated and hard to access hidden menus. This means that all your settings are visible at a glance, without having to recall pop ups or separate screens through complicated multi-button presses or sequences. The panel layout keeps controls simple and to the point with intuitive, easy-to-select and adjust functions. The new functions of Amplitude control in AC and split positive and negative wave form control offer astounding advances of tungsten life, arc quality and stability over older wave form technology. The Typhoon has five AC wave forms, Advanced Square, Soft Square, Triangular, Sine and Trapezoidal wave forms, that are available to offer the maximum level of puddle and bead control while welding Aluminum. With expanded memory option up to 30 programs and the ability to lock down programmed settings to prevent tampering, the unit helps customers maintain quality control levels where multiple users are present or where a WPS is in place. Other performance-driven features such as DC pulse wave form shaping and a new type of solid state HV/HF starting for TIG secures the Typhoon 230's place as a premier, next level TIG welder in all metals categories.
Not only is The Typhoon 230 a premier TIG welder, it is also a top-level stick welder with features such as AC and DC stick output, with adjustable AC balance and Frequency, and excellent 6010 performance. It also has arc force control (dig) and hot start adjustment to combine to run E7018 as smooth as any welder out there. The combination of the features makes this unit perfect for welding out in the field or in the shop doing fabrication and production welding. The unit has up to 200Amp Stick output at 70% duty cycle which means this unit is perfect for running root, fill and cap passes.
As a welder, the Typhoon also has other features that aren't readily apparent, but found on the inside such as high Power Factor Correction (PFC) which allows the unit to be more "forgiving" on generator power sources and consume less power overall. The unit's ability to operate on 120V or 240V improves usefulness where the power availability may be unknown on a job site. New fan and cooler control technology allows the fans and water cooler to run only when needed.
PLEASE NOTE: This machine does not have a plug fitted. To achieve the maximum performance out of your Everlast Machine please ensure your current breaker and wiring/socket setup at your place of use is sufficient enough to achieve this. For example you may be required to upgrade your breaker to a 32A dedicated circuit to suit, therefore allowing you to achieve your machines full duty cycle. If in doubt please contact your local licensed electrician for more info prior to purchasing and please see terms and conditions/warranty for more information.
Manufactured and compliant with IEC/AS 60974.10, CE Guaranteeing your electrical safety and performance. INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY
TIG ratings based off of industry accepted standard practices for quality single and multi-pass welds. AC advanced pulse, when adjusted properly can weld thicker than standard welders with 250 amps output and this is included in Steel and Aluminum maximum capacity statements.
Stick electrode maximum size is ultimately dependent upon type/class of electrode and manufacturer's recommendation.
This unit should be operated with generators capable of 8000 surge watts or greater. Though this unit is equipped with PFC, it is still recommended that for best service, the generator be rated for 5% or less Total Harmonic Distortion. However, in emergency situations, generators with higher THD levels up to 15% may be used.
