As a much improved replacement for the long running PowerUltra 205P, we think you will find that the PowerUltra 206Pi is ultra useful around home shops and small garages as an all around DC welder and plasma cutter combination.  The new digital control is more reliable and easier to maintain.  But the unit still retains that analog feel, so it is easy to setup.  We've added a couple of new features to this unit, which improves the usefulness of the TIG function.  The unit now includes down slope and postflow control.  The welder side of the unit features DC output in TIG and Stick modes and is useful for welding all types of metals except aluminum and magnesium.  In TIG mode the unit features a simple to use pulse with a .5 and 25 hertz fixed setting. The additional pulse settings have been optimized for all around use, so you don't need to worry about alot more than turning the pulse on, selecting the frequency at which you want to weld, and start welding.  The plasma cutter can handle all types of metal and can regularly cut plate metal up to 3/8" thick with a clean cut capacity of up to 3/4".  If you are looking for a simple solution to your steel and stainless welding and cutting needs, the PowerUltra 206Pi offers a compact and economical alternative to purchasing separate separate units.

All-in-one portability for portable repair operations
Compact design allows the unit to go anywhere Straight forward controls, with two preset pulse settings for easy TIG operation
Quick change out of torches for easy change from TIG to plasma back to TIG
Low power consumption due to inverter design
High duty cycle of 60% at rated amperages for TIG/Stick/Plasma
Front air pressure gauge for easy verification of air pressure
Over Current/Duty cycle protection circuit warns and interrupts welding/cutting to ensure safe, and long life operation
Clean and smooth plasma cuts on virtually any metal
Welds Steel, Stainless Steel and Titanium (The PowerUltra is DC output only, and is not suitable for welding Aluminum, although it can cut aluminum.)
Great arc stability for TIG/Stick functions due to IGBT inverter design
2 preset pulse settings of .5 and 25 hz.
Dual voltage design allows unit to be operated on 120V or 240V. (Output is reduced in 120V operation to approximately 125 amps TIG/ 95 amps Stick/25 amps plasma.)

IMPORTANT PRODUCT NOTES: While under foot pedal control, the maximum amps are not limited on the panel. The foot pedal controls the full range of amps, from 5 to 200 amps. Although the pedal can control the amps through varying the pedal position, no lower maximum amps than 200 may be set.
The pulse is preset to offer simple pulse control of the TIG with two basic settings: .5 Hz, and 25 Hz.(specification subject to change)

The PowerUltra 205 is an entry level DC output multi-purpose welder/cutter and cannot weld aluminum. However, it can be used to cut aluminum.

For work requiring aluminum welding and cutting, see our PowerPro units.

TO SWAP BETWEEN PROCESSES, CABLES AND GAS LINE SUPPLY CHANGES MUST BE MADE. THE UNIT CANNOT OPERATE MULTIPLE PROCESSES SIMULTANEOUSLY.
