    Power tig dx vs dv

    Is there any difference in the 2? I read on one of the sticky post on her that the dx now comes in 110 or 240 but on the everlast site it says only the dv comes with dual voltage. I also have looked on Amazon and they have a 2015 dx with dual voltage for 1250 and a dx without it for 1350 on those 2 there is a diffrence in the machines front panel and one has a metal handle. I'm completely lost anybody know if there are 2 different dx machines and is there any diffrence in the dx and dv machine beside the dual voltage?

    If it is advertised as a
    dx with dual voltage, it is a DV. Technically for now, all units are a 200DX-DV. The standard DX is only available in limited numbers and by the end of this year, with the 2016 models, all should be listed as DV, and will be dual voltage. All units have a metal handle in the last few years, probably using older/newer images as the outside is nearly identical. If it has an older face, it may be either old stock or someone selling used units.

    Is the 2016 model going to be different? With the new Lincoln coming out at around the same price and it almost being 2016 I might wait so I can compare the 2

    Compare apples to apples. That unit is closer to our 185 than our 200DX. It's somewhere between our 185 and Miller Diversions, except slightly higher amps. Almost no controls, low pulse capability with no adjustments other than Hz, limited cleaning adjustment, low duty cycle, not 2T4T controls and no adjustment of pre or post flow. Higher DC start at 10 amps versus our 200DX at 5. With our 185 having a greater range of control over AC frequency, it should have about as much capability when welding aluminum as well. Plus the lincoln is listing at 1399.00...higher for less. They are marketing it to a "dumbed down" crowd for sure. Our 2016 185DV will also feature a simple pulse setup as well...so it will again have more features as we've added 2T/4T functionality along with downslope to make the unit more flexible for people who go between the foot pedal and the torch switch.

    Both 200DV and 185 DV will be digitally controlled.

    What about the 225LX? I have been wanting to try out the 200dx/dv or 225LX as my next unit
    Is it 5amp start on ac and dc?

    Not sure if it will be 10 or 20 as the testing and fine tuning isn't done yet.

    Cool let me know. I'd like something that can do LOW on AC. 10 at the highest.

    So what is the lowest amperage on the current 200dx? And the 185dv? The AHP will taper down very very well.

    5 and 20, but I do know that with the foot pedal it can go down as low as 15 on AC before the arc breaks off, but the most stable level is 20 for AC.
