The thermal overload protection system is a feature that makes this system very difficult to destroy. This thermal overload system works by simply turning off the device when it is overloaded. It usually flashes an indicator light to show it is overloaded before it shuts itself down. This ensures that it is extremely difficult to burn the device even if you tried. Ideally, you should not get to the point where the system shuts itself off, and it should be turned off as soon as the indicator light flashes. But it is best to keep to the 2 min on, 8 min off cycle for maximum safety. It can also be plugged directly into a power outlet.
This device is most suited for light welding, and the weldable materials are usually between the ranges of low to mild alloy steel. It can also be used on thin stainless steel sheets, but it is not quite suitable for thick sheets and more heavy projects. These constraints also apply to aluminum – it can weld mild aluminum, but it is not ideal for larger projects.
