- The EF1 welder is IP65 rated and has been tested around the world under exacting site conditions and has proved to be an easy to use, efficient and invaluable addition to the tool box. Its robust construction, dust proof features and enhanced graphic feed‑back of the electrofusion progress, offer real benefit to the operator.
- The unit’s improved self diagnostic capabilities also ensure increased reliability and tolerance in a variety of climatic conditions. It comes complete with welding leads in a lightweight carry bag for the 230V and a robust case for the 110V.
- The EF1 unit automatically recognises the fitting when connected with the correct welding cable. It also checks the ambient temperature using a sensor positioned in the housing and adjusts the energy level to balance with the local environment. It then applies the correct amount of energy for a successful weld.
