ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced the Rogue ET 200iP PRO, a new HF TIG/Stick inverter with exceptional TIG performance and full-function digital controls at an affordable price. The unit weighs 21.2 lbs. –– one-third lighter than competitive units –– and delivers a 200A TIG output at 25% duty cycle. Users include mechanical contractors and those in general fabrication, maintenance and repair, rental, process pipe, food/beverage, farming and home workshops.
“Rogue will cause the industry to re-think its perception of power, performance and price in the compact TIG/Stick inverter category,” says Bartosz Kutarba, Global Product Manager – Light Industry Equipment, ESAB. “Other welders with its features can cost twice as much.”
With a welding output range of 10 – 200 amps, Rogue ET 200iP PRO gives you the arc control required for delicate welds and the power to run 5/32-in. Stick electrodes, as well as the arc characteristics required for all types of Stick electrodes, including 6010 and 7018. When procedures call for a TIG root and Stick fill passes, the Rogue ET 200iP PRO produces X-ray-quality results.
Professional Grade TIG
The Rogue ET 200iP has a pulsed DC TIG output range between 0.1 and 500 Hz pulses per second (PPS). Stainless steel fabricators and those working with thin metals or other heat-sensitive applications use pulsed DC TIG to control heat input, narrow the weld bead profile and increase travel speed. It delivers a stable TIG arc down to 10 amps, giving welders the control they need to work on thin metal or delicate components.
The Rogue’s 115 – 230V primary power flexibility enables users to work in a wide variety of locations. Flexible automatic input voltage compensation ensures a steady welding arc throughout the entire input power range, making it ideal for use with generator power, which often fluctuates.
Rogue ET features power factor correction (PFC), so it draws less primary current. As a result, users can use a smaller circuit breaker and reduce the worry of nuisance trips when welding at full output. Using the latest technology PFC circuit also enables welding with up to 110 yards of cable extensions, further increasing location flexibility.
The lightweight, compact Rogue, with dimensions of 15.7 x 6 x 10.4 in. easily fits in a job box. The unit has a robust fiberglass-molded housing to withstand impact, and the weather resistant, IP23S rating makes the unit suitable for use in tough applications. The digital meters visible from 25 m away, and an optional remote controller allows users to adjust current settings without needing to go back to the machine.
Rogue comes with a premium quality accessories, including a SR-B 26 type TIG torch (13 ft. cable), a set of wear parts that includes tungsten electrode, Tweco® Electrode holder (10 ft.), return cable with clamp (10 ft.), shoulder strap, Victor® gas regulator and 115V/230V power adaptor.
