  • Weld Central® Complete System

    Available soon! The new Weld Central® is a Process Optimization System that monitors and tracks key (time-stamped) process variables, including current, voltage, wire feed speed, gas flow & feed motor current. This information can be utilized for both process optimization and determining the weld cell OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness). Combined with the Wizard View® software, the Weld Central® is the ultimate weld cell performance monitoring system! Complete system (for one torch) includes all sensors, controller and PC with pre-installed software.

  • Wizard View® Optimization Software

    Wizard View® provides an easy to use interface for the Weld Central® System that graphs and logs data, alerts, wire & gas usage and other key welding performance information. The software collects data from any torch with the Weld Central® hardware installed. Simply browse to the desired torch to see a visual representation of the welding data along with the wire and gas usage information. One software license is included with each Wizard View controller.

  • Gas Flow Monitor

    The Weld Central® Digital Gas Flow Monitor provides an easy way to monitor shielding gas flow in robotic or semi-automatic welding applications. Available in both an in-line and portable version, it allows monitoring and totalizing incoming gas flow or measurement and verification of gas flow at the nozzle.

  • Wire Speed Sensor

    The Wire Feed Sensor is an essential component for the Weld Central® System. It measures wire activity, including feed speed and total wire usage. Compatible with up to 1/16” diameter wire.

    • 10-1000 IPM (4.2 – 423mm/s) +/- 3%,
    • 1 IPM (0.4mm/s) Resolution
    • Includes 20 ft (6m) cable
    • Compatible with any wire feeder
    • Inlet Guides: Order PAWFS-12 (for steel wire) or PAWFS-12-1 with A-4L-H Liner (for aluminum/non-ferrous wire) along with required connector fittings (A-3 disconnect or A-16F-4 fitting)
  • Voltage and Current Sensor

    The Voltage & Current Sensor measures arc voltage and amperage from the power source. Compatible with any power source manufacturer (lug connectors included).

    • Voltage Range & Accuracy: 0-80 Volts DC +/- 1%, 0.1 Volt Resolution
    • Current Range & Accuracy: 0-1000 Amps DC +/- 1%, 1 Amp Resolution
  • Feed Motor Current Sensor

    The Wire Feed Motor Current Sensor for the Weld Central® System measures amperage draw on the wire feeder motor. Ideal for detecting a variety of wire feeding issues that can increase the workload on the feeder. Compatible with any wire feeder manufacturer (installs inside feeder housing).

    • Range: 0-5.0 ADC
    • Accuracy: ±3% Full Scale ±2 digits
    • Resolution: 0.01 amps
    • Includes 20 ft (6m) cable
  • I/O Cable for PLC Connection

    The I/O Cable for the Weld Central® System includes the necessary I/O connections for connecting the Weld Central® Controller to a PLC or process controller. 16 ft (5m) long. Included with the Weld Central® Complete System Kit (WC-1-KIT).
