Not getting into a discussion and hijacking his thread but he never mentioned it being used to power the mig, he had a 3kva Genny for that, he states the mosa has power for tools but no power from the welding side of the mosa's alternator, oh and i corrected your first line of your reply for youNo but you did properly
as it has an output as it powers things
however the user posted it within arc welding for a mig welding unit that is powered by a mosa generator
both users have come back and offered no advice on the post for the userhe d
It is the first thing I would do as it doesn't require dismantling anything to test other than gain access to the rectifier and obviously make sure you don't get your fingers too closeOk, thanks for all the replies so far. I'll try and do some testing this week and report back.
So the first test is check AC voltage going into the rectifier If it is then check the diodes on the rectifier
If auxiliary power works diodes are not short .Sorry this has got a bit confusing, to clarify
Mosa TS 200 is an engine driven generator and welder.
The generator side of it works but the welder doesn't.
The manual says to check or replace the diode bridge. I know where and what the diode bridge looks like and what a diode does (like a one way valve) i'm just unsure how to test it in this context.
Well i'm glad the windings are OK.If auxiliary power works diodes are not short .
And windings are good
That's for sure
Diodes might just blown open circuit.
They still need to be replaced but at least you're not cooking the windings.
Does the governor work?
Governor should be there as well .Well i'm glad the windings are OK.
Does the governer work? It's a deisel, I don't think it has a governor, I may be wrong.
If the diodes are blown are they indentifiable and easily replaced or does the whole rectifier have to be replaced?
