Perfect for Schools
At 53 lbs. and with a 235-amp rated output at 40% duty cycle (maximum output is 250 amps/30 volts), Rebel 235 has the best power-to-weight ratio in its category. Its portability benefits users who need maximum flexibility when moving a welding machine around the shop or working in the field. For further flexibility, Rebel 235 automatically detects the correct single-phase input power from 90 to 270V. Rebel 235 comes wired with a 230V plug; users simply need to attach the supplied power adapter to connect to 120V power. Rebel 235 holds 4-, 8- or 12-in. wire spools, features dual gas ports with solenoid valves and has optional single- and dual-cylinder carts, remote amperage controls and spool guns for MIG aluminum.
Upon donning the helmet, operators will immediately notice greater comfort from SENTINEL’s A50’s Halo adjustable 5-point headgear, says the company. The ergonomic, low-profile design delivers improved weight distribution with five contact points, including a central pivot point that allows maximum head clearance while the helmet is in the up position. The additional contact points introduce approximately 500,000 different combinations of headgear settings, five times more than standard helmets typically provide. SENTINEL features a 3.93″ x 2.36″ (100 x 60mm) viewing area, an externally activated grind button, a color touchscreen control panel and a front-loading convex cover lens that comes in different color options and changes in 10 seconds.
