TE 93 is a microprocessor welding control unit for single-phase resistance welders. The welding control unit is used to control the welder parts and, in particular, the thyristors adjusting the welding current. The peculiar feature which characterises the control unit TE 93 is that it can be used in combination with other control units of the same type in order to perform welding sequences. The working cycle carried out by the TE 93 is described through 12 programming parameters. The TE 93 can be used for both manual and pneumatic-operated welders.

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORKING MODES

The peculiarity of TE93 is that it can be used together with other control units of the same type in order to carry out working sequences of different welding machines. The parameter MODE enables to program the working mode, i.e. the type of welding cycle that the control carries out according to the incoming control signals. If the control unit is used alone, that is to say it is not connected to other units of the same type, the parameter MODE should be always set to 0. On the contrary, the working modes from 1 to 7 are used when the control unit is connected with other units of the same type. They determine different types of working sequences that are carried out by the welding machines.
