There are different welding modes I'd like to have in my welder (like continuous, pulsed, etc.). Here are the ones I will probably add :

(Note : The above acronyms are not industry standards, in fact, I think I made them up)

I will not explain each mode here, as I don't know if I'm going to integrate them all as some may not be as useful as others. (If you still want an explanation about a mode, leave a comment !!)

I still have to make some research on how commercial tab/spot welder work in different modes, as well as their "industry-normalized" names.

The modes will be selected with a rotary encoder and a GUI on an OLED display I'm currently kind of working on ("kind of" because I haven't received the rotary encoder I'll be using)
