The AlphaTIG 225Xi is a modern AC/DC TIG/Stick welder with a modular IGBT inverter design that is digitally controlled for top performance. Designed to be versatile, this TIG welder is built to meet the daily needs of most medium sized fabrication or repair shops. It features dual voltage 120V/240V input capability for go-anywhere performance with up to 150A output while operating on 120V. Fully adjustable pulse adds to the theme of versatility with a pulse frequency range in TIG mode up to a respectable 200Hz in both AC and DC modes. While the unit is designed for the professional welder, the welder is also well within the scope of a beginner welder, with an easy to use interface, and a low entry price when compared to the competition.
Whether professional or novice, this unit features a 3 year, parts and labor warranty.

This unit is not designed or intended to weld with E6010. The arc will not be stable. Consider using E6011 in place of E6010.
This unit must be operated with generators that are rated by the manufacturer's as "Clean power". Clean power is defined as 5% or less Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).
The minimum required wattage for operation with this unit is 9000 Surge Watts.
Operation with generators that are not clean power rated or that do not meet the wattage requirements will void the warranty.
