Remote Amperage Controls for Miller


You know, some times you just need to follow your instinct…  On a fairly regular basis we get an order for a remote amperage control for a Miller TIG welding machine.  And the customer has requested a 5 pin plug.  You see, Miller used to offer a 5 pin plug, but has now moved to a 14 pin plug.  The problem is that the 14 pin plug only has 5 “live” pins but sometimes has 14 pins installed and sometimes only 5 pins are installed.  Confused yet?  Makes my head spin!


 The 14 pin plug, regardless of how many pins are installed, is approximately 1 1/2″ in diameter. (see photo above)


It’s only the older machines that have the actual 5 pin plug.  That plug is shown above.

And of course whenever we get an order for a Remote Amperage Control with a 5 pin plug, we usually call and double check.  And when we don’t–  well we get a call from a customer who’s got the wrong one for their machine.

So, if you order one from don’t be surprised if you get a call from Jim.   We like to make sure our customers get exactly what they need.
