The m31 Smart Series

The m31 smart series offers a precise and responsive control of welding output for applications requiring larger currents.

The units employ a unique twin loop control circuit enabling HFDC technology to provide performance similar to Linear DC. The unique system ensures a minimal output ripple across the entire operating range thereby permitting highly accurate process measurements to be taken in real time.  

All m31 units have a graphical interface that allows precise process window tolerances to be applied.  

All units have PLC, Ethernet & RS232 and PC interfaces for remote control, programming and SPC data recording.  

Options include built in servo weld head drive interface.
