striker 160 TIGClick image to enlargeWeldcote's Striker 160 welding inverter for TIG and stick welding is a compact, dual voltage single-phase inverter unit.

Digital readouts automatically identify the power grid voltage and the unit operates accordingly.

Weighing only 21.4 lb., it features power factor corrector (PFC), which increases power efficiency, reduces input power requirements, and stabilizes the welding current, maximizing efficiency on extension cords and generators.

As a safety precaution, it has a voltage reduction device (VDR) that reduces the voltage across the outputs when idling.

It works with a wide range of input voltages, from 98 volts to 265 volts, making it an ideal option for use with generators.

Direct current welding uses coated electrodes of diameters from 1/16-in. to 5/32-in. and it is 6010 electrode-capable. A hot start function provides easy ignition of the weld arc, while arc force prevents the electrode from sticking to the workpiece. A power-saving smart fan feature reduces dust and improves the life of the fan.

The Striker 160 comes ready to stick weld with a 230-volt to 115-volt adaptor, electrode holder, ground clamp and cables. An optional TIG torch with 12-ft. cable can be purchased separately, as well as a flow gauge regulator and gas hose.
