  • Current Range: 5 – 220A
  • Single Phase 110/230V
  • Weight: 14 Kg



A single phase multi function inverter, the GYS TIG 221 features high frequency start for TIG welding as well as being capable of MMA (stick welding).  Flexible voltage technology allows the user to use both 110V or 230V input power supplies, perfect for site work.  The robust yet lightweight construction suits mobile use.

The GYS PROTIG 221 features pre and post flow gas and up/down slope settings as well as 2T and 4T torch trigger control and produces great results in steel and stainless steels.  In MMA mode, the machine is capable of welding steel, stainless steel, cast iron, rutile or basic electrodes.  Also equipped with MMA pulse for ease of vertical up and pipe welding.

Functioning from a standard 13A domestic 240V power supply and even on extension leads up to 100m in length thanks to power factor correction (PFC).

The GYS PROTIG 221 is an inverter welder from the GYS professional range made in France providing 220 amps DC welding current.

Microprocessor controlled, the TIG 221 has an intuitive digital control panel for easy setting of welding parameters.  A digital display shows current and voltage settings and a memory capability allows the user to store up to 10 pre-set programs per process, great for easy re-call of previously used settings.



Arc starting in TIG: 

Choose between:

  • High frequency start to begin welding without touching the tungsten to the work piece for an uncontaminated start


  • LIFT TIG – In situations where nearby electrically sensitive equipment is present (ie welding modern cars).  Touch the tungsten electrode on the work piece and lift to start the arc.

Trigger Control

  • 2T – Press the torch button to begin and release to finish the weld.
  • 4T – Press torch button to start and press again to finish the weld.
  • 4T Log – Enables switching between 2 operator pre-set welding intensities (hot current and cold current) by a short press on the trigger.

3 TIG Processes


  • Pre-gas, Up slope, Current (1 or 2 possible current settings in 4T Log mode), Post-gas, Down slope


  • 0.1 – 2000Hz


    • Enables the user to prepare parts with spot welding.  Set anywhere between 0.1 – 25 sec for fast and precise spot-welding on thin sheet metal.

Remote Control Interface

A remote control socket on the front of the machine allows connection to a foot pedal or remote control


  • MMA welding uses basic and rutile electrodes (up to Ø 5 mm).
  • Pulsed MMA welding enables users to weld in a vertical-up position (ideal for tubing and pipelines, etc.).
  • The PROTIG 221 DC FV has three integrated welding aids:
    – Anti-Stick minimises the risk of the electrode sticking to the workpiece
    – Hot Start facilitates ignition and can be quickly adjusted depending on the type of metal
    – Arc Force automatically increases the current in difficult welding situations
  • Stores up to 10 welding programs per process.
  • The advanced menu settings offer optimal welding control.
  • PFC (Power Factor Correction) technology means that this machine is compatible with power cables up to 100 metres long.
  • FV (Flexible Voltage) technology guarantees a stable electric arc, even in the event of a mains-voltage variation (85 – 265 V) or when powered supply by a battery-based power source.
  • The current and voltage are displayed during and after the welding process (DMOS/QMOS).
  • Remote control connections (manual or pedal)
  • Reinforced bodywork and anti-shock pads.
  • Compact and easy to move around the work site.
  • Protected against over-voltages up to 400 V (PROTEC 400).
