The ET 200iP PRO HF TIG/Stick inverter provides exceptional arc performance and full-function digital controls at an affordable price.Click image to enlargeESAB’s Rogue ET 200iP PRO is a new HF TIG/stick inverter with exceptional TIG performance and full-function digital controls.

The unit weighs 9.6 kg (21.2 lbs.) and delivers a 200A TIG output at 25 per cent duty cycle, perfect for mechanical contractors and those in general fabrication, maintenance and repair, rental, process pipe, food/beverage, farming and home workshops.

With a welding output range of 10 – 200 amps, it gives the arc control required for delicate welds and the power to run 5/32-in. stick electrodes, as well as the arc characteristics required for all types of stick electrodes, including 6010 and 7018. When procedures call for a TIG root and stick fill passes, ESAB says the Rogue ET 200iP PRO produces X-ray-quality results.

It has a pulsed DC TIG output range between 0.1 and 500 Hz pulses per second (PPS). Stainless steel fabricators and those working with thin metals or other heat-sensitive applications use pulsed DC TIG to control heat input, narrow the weld bead profile and increase travel speed. It delivers a stable TIG arc down to 10 amps, giving welders the control they need to work on thin metal or delicate components.

Its 115 – 230V primary power flexibility enables users to work in a wide variety of locations. Flexible automatic input voltage compensation ensures a steady welding arc throughout the entire input power range, making it ideal for use with generator power, which often fluctuates.

Its power factor correction (PFC) draws less primary current so welders can use a smaller circuit breaker when welding at full output. The PFC circuit also enables welding with up to 110 yards of cable extensions, further increasing flexibility.
