duty cycle

I was an electronic technician a long time ago, I don't know what your measuring, but here is a typical real-life duty-cycle reading: A cheap welder will say it has a 20% duty cycle. This means it will operate one fifth of the time without overheating, lets say 5 minutes on, and cool down for 25 minutes. A higher quality welder will have a 100% duty cycle, you could use it continuously without it getting too hot. Lorenzo in Great Falls.......
