Product Description

Permanent or Portable

The Arc Logger XIII (ALX III) RS monitors all popular arc welding processes.  Built-in security protects against damage from the high frequency/high voltage start systems used on many TIG welding power sources.

When used with an external monitor and keyboard, this portable system delivers up to four hours of monitoring time from the rechargeable internal battery.

Rugged and hard-working, the ALX III RS is designed to withstand tough working environments and conditions.  The unit is capable of monitoring welding procedures and qualifying welders. Adaptable, it is also useful in a laboratory where the precision welding of fine components and exotic materials requires an accurate data logging system.

Pulse Mode and ASME IX (2015)

In pulse mode, the ALX III RS will give instantaneous values of peak and background levels for voltage and current as well as produce a graphical display for detailed pulse analysis. It can measure, display and calculate instantaneous energy and heat input.

The optional pulse mode creates an absolutely accurate monitor for complex welding waveforms. With pulse, the unit is able to produce quality reports whilst measuring peak and background values of voltage and current. Pulse mode complies with all requirements of ASME IX (2015), EEMUA Publication 158 (Third Edition) and PD ISO/TR 18491:2015.
