The new CrossLinc Remote from Lincoln Electric allows operators to adjust welding settings at the arc, including voltage on a wire feeder or current for stick (SMAW) or TIG (GTAW) welding.

The new remote streamlines welding setup, delivers higher productivity, saves steps and time running back to the welding power source and enhances job site safety by eliminating additional control cables underfoot. With local control at the arc, operators can dial in the exact settings required for each weld to enhance weld quality and drive down the number of weld defects.

The CrossLinc Remote is ideal for construction, shipyards and other industries. The remote is compatible with the latest CrossLinc-equipped Flextec welders, allowing fleet owners and rental operators to take advantage of CrossLinc Technology even with previous non-CrossLinc-equipped wire feeders and stick or TIG processes.

Unlike common remote controls, the new CrossLinc Remote controls output on Constant Current (CC) or Constant Voltage (CV) in both DC+ or DC- polarity. It displays actual voltage or current while welding.

When in SMAW mode and DC- polarity, the remote uses its mode-sensing capability to reduce arc control to minimum levels for good scratch-start TIG. This feature can be turned on or off depending on user preference. Users can also choose to display current or voltage during welding, reset the machine back to factory default settings, turn off arc control and use an arc timer. A digital meter indicates polarity and an LED display indicates if the voltage or amperage display shows preset or actual settings. The remote also includes a memory function to recall where it was set in the event it is disconnected, and it will power back up at the same settings last used.

The remote features CrossLinc-connection sensing and amp/volt indicator lights, Tweco-style male/female pigtail connections, and an easily replaceable voltage sensing lead with strain relief. An aluminum case and rubber corners ensure durability and a foldable handle allows easy transport and a place to hang the remote.
