Miller Electric’s Maxstar 150 welder connects to 115- and 230-volt receptacles

Miller Electric has added MVP Plugs to its Maxstar 150 TIG/Stick welder, enabling the unit to connect to 115- and 230-volt receptacles. Available in three models, S (Stick-only), STL (Stick/TIG Lift-Arc start) and STH (Stick/TIG high frequency and Lift-Arc start), Miller also includes a highly durable polypropylene X-Case to protect the Maxstar 150 and its accessories during transport and storage. The STL and STH models also include a newly redesigned, 6-pin receptacle for use with a foot pedal or remote control switch.

The Maxstar 150 comes standard with two MVP plugs: 115 V, 15 A and 230 V 50 A. End-users simply choose the MVP plug that fits the receptacle and connect it to the power cord with no tools required.

The Maxstar 150 weighs 13.7 pounds and has DC Stick/TIG output of 150 amps at 30-percent duty cycle using 230 VAC power. This enables nearly unlimited welding with a 1/8-inch-diameter Stick electrode, which covers approximately 80 percent of all Stick applications.
