Miller Maxstar® 161 STH TIG/Stick Package With Remote Control 907711001
Miller Maxstar® 161 STH is a DC TIG/Stick Package that features pulsed TIG welding and comes complete with fingertip remote amperage control, TIG torch with accessories and X-CASE™ transportation/storage case. It is capable of up to 160 amps of welding output. The 161 STH weighs only 13 pounds and operates on either 120 volt or 240 input power. The Maxstar 161 STH offers both Lift-Arc™ and High Frequency arc starts. Use Lift-Arc™ when TIG welding around electronic equipment (like computers and phone systems) that might be sensitive to high frequency interference. Use High Frequency arc starts to avoid surface contamination of the tungsten welding electrode.
The Maxstar 161 STH is capable of DC Puled TIG welding. Pulse range is adjustable from 0-150 Hz to allow precise control of heat and arc stability, especially on thin material. The 161 STH also offers superior stick arc performance, even when using E6010. It has Miller's Auto-Line™ technology that automatically adjusts for input voltages ranging from 120 volts to 240 volts without manual linking.
The Maxstar 161 STH TIG/Stick Package comes complete with 150 amp TIG torch with accessories, RCCS-6M fingertip remote amperage control, flow gauge regulator with gas hose, electrode holder, work clamp and all necessary cables. It also carries Miller's True Blue® 3 year warranty.
DC TIG (GTAW)
DC Pulsed TIG (GTAW-P)
Auto-Line™ - Allows for any input voltage
hookup (120–240 V) with
no manual linking, providing
convenience in any job setting.
Ideal solution for dirty or
Digital meter for more precise
control when presetting or
monitoring welding amperage.
DC Pulse TIG welding - Pulsing can increase puddle agitation, arc stability and travel speeds
while reducing heat input and distortion.
Selectable trigger configuration
allows the operator to choose
standard or 2T trigger method to
meet the application.
Lift-Arc™ provides TIG arc initiation
without the use of high frequency.
High frequency for non-contact arc
initiation that reduces tungsten and
Pro-Set™ eliminates the guesswork
when setting weld parameters. Use
Pro-Set when you want the speed,
convenience and confidence of
preset controls. Simply select the
feature and adjust until Pro-Set
appears on the display.
Full function remote control capability for
precise amperage control for critical
welds on thin materials (6-pin
fingertip or foot control available - sold separately.)
Built-in gas solenoid eliminates
the need for a bulky torch with a
Portable in the shop or at the job
site - at 13.2 lb the shoulder strap
allows the end user to easily move
from location to location.
Fan-On-Demand™ - power source
cooling system operates only
when needed, reducing noise,
energy use and the amount of
contaminants pulled through
Thermal overload protection -
helps prevent machine damage
if the duty cycle is exceeded or
airflow is blocked.
Single amperage range -
allows operator to accurately
set amperage on both 120- or
240-volt primary power.
Hot Start™ adaptive control -
provides positive arc starts
Low OCV stick is a simple
design that reduces the open circuit
voltage to 12–16 volts
when the welding power source
is not in use. This circuit design
is now built into the Maxstar
161 S eliminating the need for
add-on voltage reducers.
Power factor corrected (PFC) -
for optimum performance
especially on 120 volts — reduces nuisance breaker
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.
Superior stick arc performance
even on the difficult-to-run
electrodes like E6010.
