Miller® Maxstar® 280 TIGRunner With CPS 907538002
The Miller® Maxstar® 280 TIGRunner Package includes Maxstar 280 TIG welder with CPS (Cooler Power Supply), Coolmate 1.3 water cooler and Miller Small Runner cart. The system provides up to 280 amps of DC TIG arc and Stick arc welding output. The Maxstar 280 can weld up to 3/8 inch steel, yet weight hundreds of pounds less than comparable welders in the same welding output class. The Maxstar 280 TIG welder provides the basic features that are required for most DC TIG or STICK welding applications using a simple, menu-driven interface. The 280 also has a built-in pulser capable of 0-250 PPS. Processes
DC TIG (GTAW)
Pulsed TIG (GTAW-P)
Air Carbon Arc (CAC-A)
Upgradeable and expandable. Front panel memory card data port provides the ability to easily upgrade software and expand product features.
Pro-Set™ feature (professional settings) eliminates the guesswork when setting weld parameters. Use Pro-Set when you want the speed, convenience and confidence of pre-set controls. Simply select the feature and adjust until Pro-Set appears on the display. The Pro-Set feature is available for Balance, Frequency, Pulse, and DIG parameters.
Sleep timer conserves electricity. This programmable feature will power down the machine if it sits idle for a specific time.
Auto-Line™ provides state-of-the-art flexibility by automatically connecting to 208-575 VAC, single- or three- phase power without removing the covers to relink the power source. No longer is there a concern if you have the correct machine for the shop or the job site.
Cooler Power Supply (CPS). An integrated 120-volt dedicated-use receptacle to power the Coolmate™ 1.3. The power switch on the Dynasty also activates the receptacle to help prevent torch failure.
Blue Lightning™ high-frequency arc starter for non-contact arc initiation. Provides more consistent arc starts and greater reliability compared to traditional HF arc starters. Easy to set and increases productivity
Meter calibration. Digital meters can be calibrated to a standard device for certification.
Wind Tunnel Technology™ protects internal electrical components from airborne contaminates, extending the product life.
Fan-On-Demand™ power source cooling system operates only when needed, reducing noise, energy use and the amount of contaminates pulled though the machine
Thermal Overload Protection - Internal components are protected from damage by thermal overload protection which automatically shuts down the unit if duty cycle is exceeded or air flow and cooling are restricted.
DC TIG Features
DC Pulsed TIG standard .01–250 PPS
Exceptionally smooth and precise arc for welding exotic materials.
DC Stick Features
Tailored arc control (DIG) allows the arc characteristic to be changed for specific applications and electrodes. Smooth running 7018 or stiffer, more penetrating 6010.
Hot Start™ adaptive control provides positive arc starts without sticking.
Stick-Stuck detects if the electrode is stuck to the part and turns the welding output off to safely and easily remove the electrode. Menu selectable.

Get a FREE Optrel® Panormaxx CLT Silver auto-darkening welding helmet with the purchase of this Miller® Maxstar® 280 DC TIGRunner. While supplies last. (No substitutions allowed.)
The Optrel® Panoramaxx CLT Silver auto-darkening welding hood features Crystal shade 2.0 light state that is unmatched in the world for color and clarity and provides up to 6X the viewing area of a standard 2" X 4" auto-dark welding lens. The key to this revolutionary technology is the size and shape of the ADF, coupled with the unique Panoramaxx shell design, which allows the welding lens to be positioned closer to your face. The Panoramaxx also has advanced features like SHADETRONIC®, which automatically adjusts the shade level based on the brightness of the arc and True Color, which allows for realistic color perception in light or dark states.
All Panoramaxx welding helmets now come with the revolutionary IsoFit® headgear. It is the only welding headgear in the world that wraps the entire crown of the head with multiple touch points to provide a custom fit like never before. Independent "three dimensional" size, width and height adjustments ensure all day comfort with a secure hold.
The Panoramaxx CLT has a built-in rechargeable battery that does not need replacing. The battery is charged through arc light or when manual charging is necessary, a micro USB charging port. It comes complete with micro USB cable, helmet bag and Oprel's 2+1 warranty.
PANORAMIC FIELD OF VISION - The Panoramaxx CLT offers a 6 times larger field of vision than standard welding helmets and is still a lightweight at only 21.5 ounces.
CRYSTAL LENS TECHNOLOGY 2.0 - Shade 2.0 light state provides the brightest view of your working environment available anywhere. The natural color and clear optics supplied by CLT increases both safety and efficiency in the workplace.
SHADETRONIC® - Detection of the arc brightness and fully automated shade level adjustment from 4 to 12. Adjusts automatically to the changing light conditions of the current welding method. A sophisticated SHADETRONIC® sensor continuously measures the light intensity of the welding arc and regulates the glare protection progressively and fully automatically.
FADETRONIC - Patented Optrel FadeTronic technology gradually lightens the auto darkening filter after the welding arc is extinguished. The unpleasant afterglow is faded out especially for high amperage applications. Eye fatigue is significantly reduced, enhancing worker safety. FADETRONIC can be adjusted for a custom user experience.
TRUE COLOR - A specially developed UV/IR filter allows the realistic color perception typical of Optrel®, bringing color to the welder's world. TRUE COLOR passes more colors of the spectrum through compared to standard "green" spectrum welding lenses.
Optrel Re-Charge - With its rechargeable power-pack, changing batteries is no longer necessary. Thanks to the latest solar technology, a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery is recharged either by the welding light or by the ambient light. In addition, the battery can also be charged directly with any USB charger via a micro-USB interface.
5-Point Detection - intelligent sensor control with five sensors. Sophisticated software and clever positioning of four sensors at the corners and one sensor in the upper center ensures the lens is switched on and off perfectly, even in the most difficult lighting conditions or in awkward positions.
IsoFit® headgear sets a new standard of wearing comfort. It is the only product worldwide that can be adjusted in width, length and height i.e. three-dimensionally to any head shape, so that the helmet really fits "like a glove."
FadeTronic® - gradually lightens lens when switching from dark (welding) to light state to ease eye fatigue.
Sensitivity Adjustment - allows operator to change lens switching sensitivity for varying ambient light conditions or outdoor welding in sunlight.
Grinding Mode - external grind control allows user to switch between welding mode and shade 2 grinding mode quickly and easily.
Out-Of Position Welding is possible with Optrel®'s unique shell design, which has no seams or edges where weld spatter can collect.
