Duty Cycle

The rated Duty cycle refers to the amount of welding that can be done within an amount of time. The Eastwood ARC200i has a duty cycle of 15% at 200 Amps. It is easiest to look at your welding time in blocks of 10 Minutes and the Duty Cycle being a percentage of that 10 Minutes. If welding at 200 Amps with a 15% Duty Cycle, within a 10 Minute block of time you can weld for 1-1/2 Minutes with 8-1/2 Minutes of cooling for the welder.

If the Duty Cycle is exceeded, the Welder will automatically shut off, however the fan will continue running to cool the overheated components. When a safe temperature has been reached, the Welder will automatically switch the welder output back on. To increase the duty cycle you can turn down the Amperage Output control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little stick welder My son let me borrow his 200i to learn how to stick weld for fun. This little machine is a champion. Been learning with 6011, 6013, 7014, & 7018 rods plus some scrap steel from Rudy's Metals in Sacramento. I'm not a great welder yet, but I figure I'll improve with more stick time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great stick welder. I bought this welder about 3 months ago and put it through a aggressive time of welding. After about 3 weeks it stopped working, I called and we went through a checklist. I returned the welder and was sent a new machine. The second welder is working perfectly. I understand that any machine can have a problem but is great to have someone to talk to and give such great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just got my arc200i today I just got the arc200i today. Tested it with 1/8 6013 first, ran great. Then I used 1/8 7018 also ran terrific. I was worried that this machine would have problems running 6010 or not run it at all as many little inverter machines do. Also the description specifically says it runs 6013, 7014 and 7018 but no 6010. But I ran some 1/8 6010 with absolutely no problems!!! Duty cycle is a little low, but for the price thats ok with me.

Questions & Answers

I am new to welding. How do I change the polarity from DC- to DC+? Also, what polarity does it come with from the factory (I assume DC+)?

Asked by: Jamel
It comes with the leads not connected. YOU choose the polarity with the +/- connectors on the machine

With the TIG attachment is there anyway to turn it into a pedal control TIG instead of scratch TIG. Thanks :)

Asked by: Cal R
This is a scratch start only. It does not have a high-frequency start. If you would like to use a foot pedal then you can use the Tig 200, 200 AC/DC or the Digital tig.

I am a beginner welder interested in this machine. My house has Standard 110v outlets, I was wondering if this would run properly on those? Also, are there any other machines I should look at you’d recommend. Thank you :) 

Asked by: Cal R
Unfortunately it will not. This machine in reference runs off of 220v only. The best 110v option we have in regards to an ARC welder would be: https://www.eastwood.com/arc-80-inverter-stick-welder.html

Will the welder make vertical welds (DC reverse polarity)?

Asked by: timothy
Yes this welder will work well in vertical positions. Welder polarity will be dependent on Electrode selection.
