Travel speed can be measured as follows:
- Travel speed sensor. Sensor measures positions, in degrees during welding. In combination with programmed weld radius average weld speed is calculated.
- Pre-programmed weld length in combination with measured total arc time actual the weld speed is calculated.
- Weld length input after a welding in combination with measured total arc time average weld speed is calculated.
Arc Voltage can be measured as follows:
- 2 voltage sensing leads to be connected to the pipe and to the tip of the welding torch
Arc current can be measured as follows:
- Hall effect sensor fixed in a current box
- Clamp-on meter for easy and fast connection
Wire speed can be measured as follows:
- Incremental encoder integrated in a wire straighter unit
- Clamp-on DC tachometer
Gas flow can be measured as follows:
- In-line Gas flow meter (max. pressure 25 Psi)
Every second a set of measurements is displayed on a small LCD monitor. When the arc voltage and arc current do so indicate, the measurement sets are stored on the logger’s harddisk. The measurements are grouped into layers, which have to be named by the operator; each layer is automatically divided into runs, each corresponding with the moment that the actual welding started. When a standard line printer is connected, then for every run a print-out is produced, with a line of data every second. While the VT logger is logging new data, older data can be reviewed as well.
