E500 Stick Welder

E500 Stick WelderE500 Multi Operator Welder Pack

Top Features

  • DC CC 2kW
  • Rugged Tubular Pak-Lok-Frame
  • Built to Red-D-Arc Extreme-Duty Specifications
  • Arc Force Control and Continuous Current Control
  • Full Range Remote Current Control
  • Available in 4Pak and 6Pak Configurations
  • Processes: Stick (SMAW), TIG (GTAW), MIG (GMAW), Air Carbon Arc Cutting, Flux-Cored (FCAW)

The choice for industrial applications offering a smooth, consistent arc and enough amperage for air carbon arc gouging with up to 3/8" diameter carbons. Ideal arc characteristics for critical welding such as low hydrogen and stainless steel electrodes. Superior all-position stability makes code quality welds and clear x-rays easier to attain.

Stick (SMAW)


  • MIG (GMAW) - When used with voltage sensing wirefeeders

  • Air Carbon Arc Cutting
  • Air Carbon Arc Cutting and Gouging (CAC-A) up to 3/8" diameter electrodes

  • Flux-Cored (FCAW)
  • Flux-cored (FCAW-SS) - When used with voltage sensing wirefeeders

  • Additional Features


    • Ideal arc characteristics for critical welding such as low hydrogen and stainless steel electrodes
    • A smooth arc with superior all-position stability resists pop-outs and limits spatter making code quality welds and clear x-rays easier to attain
    • Full range output control with a "high" and "low" range for more precise output setting
    • Arc Force Control provides variable additional amperage during low voltage (short arc length) conditions which prevents sticking and shorting of organic coated electrodes, particularly globular transfer types such as stainless and low hydrogen, especially effective for root pass on pipes using stainless electrodes
    • Lline voltage compensation for constant output regardless of input power fluctuations
    • Fan-as-Needed for lower power costs, less noise and fewer contaminants drawn into the machine resulting in less maintenance
    • Extreme-Duty™ stainless steel construction for operation in harsh environments
    • Rugged tubular Pak-Lok-Frame™ enclosure for increased protection
    • Can be assembled with Pak-Lok™ connectors into 4Pak™ and 6Pak™ multioperator systems with single source power input ideal for onsite applications including construction and shipbuilding
    • Thermostatically protected against transformer overheating during overload currents and against insufficient cooling
    • Recessed front panels protect controls, totally enclosed control circuit compartment
    • All weather, full environmental protection (including salt water) for field construction
    • Triple dipped transformer assemblies for added reliability in adverse conditions
    • Drip-proof ventilation for protection in outdoor conditions
    • NEMA class I Rating
    • Multi-voltage input from a three phase line
