nVent / Erico CADWELD® Plus Control Unit

CADWELD PLUS Control Unit with 15 ft or 6 ft Plug-in Replaceable Lead


Part of the CADWELD® PLUS system, the electronic control unit is a small, hand-held, battery-powered ignition tool that helps simplify the welded connection process. The CADWELD PLUS system eliminates the need for starting material and flint igniters by utilizing an electronic ignition. Two field-replaceable leads in lengths of 6 ft (1.8 m) or 15 ft (4.6 m) offer increased flexibility and versatility in hard-to-reach areas. This CE/UL® Recognized battery-powered ignition system is designed for 600 connections with one set of eight standard AA batteries (included) and requires no special batteries or chargers.

The CADWELD PLUS control unit initiates the reaction of the CADWELD PLUS welding material cup. The standard unit includes a 6 ft (1.8 m) high temperature control unit lead. The lead attaches to the ignition strip on the welding material cup using a custom, purpose-designed termination clip. After the termination clip is installed on the ignition strip, the installer pushes and holds the ignition button to start a charging and discharging sequence. Within a few seconds, the control unit sends a predetermined voltage to the ignition strip and the reaction is initiated. As the “ready” light is flashing during the first few seconds, the installer can release the button to prevent the ignition.
