Miller® Maxstar® 280 DX TIG Welder With CPS 907539
The Miller® Maxstar® 280 DX TIG Welder with CPS (Cooler Power Supply) provides up to 280 amps of DC TIG arc and Stick arc welding output. At just 50 pounds, the Maxstar 280 DX 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 DX TIG welder provides advanced features for DC TIG or STICK welding applications. The 280 DX adds extended ranges to sequencer and full trigger options, preflow and increases pulser range to 500 PPS.

Pro-Set™ feature (professional
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.
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
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
Digital meters can be calibrated to a
standard device for certification.
Wind Tunnel Technology™ protects internal electrical
components from airborne contaminates, extending the
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.
Wireless remote compatible - fully compatible with Miller
wireless remote control solutions —
so you can work the way you want
DC TIG Features
Extended ranges to sequencer, full trigger options, and preflow functions.
DC Pulsed TIG standard
Exceptionally smooth and precise arc for welding exotic materials.

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.

FREE Optrel® Panoramaxx CLT Silver auto-darkening welding helmet
Get a FREE Optrel® Panormaxx CLT Silver auto-darkening welding helmet with the purchase of this Miller® Maxstar® 280 DX DC TIG welder. Expires 3/31/23. (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
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.
Comes complete with
Micro USB charging cable
