"Medium frequency" refers to a welding control system (consisting of
transformers and medium frequency converters) that operates at a frequency
range of 400 Hz to 1600 Hz. "Direct current" refers to the type of welding
current produced by the welding control system, as opposed to alternating

Subject: being too picky? (long)
I am working on a manual for a welding control that
integrates with our
products. I asked the SME to provide me with a definition
for a glossary
term (MFDC), and this is what he gave me:
MFDC: Medium Frequency Direct Current. A welding control
operating frequency ranges from 400Hz to 1600Hz.
I asked a co-worker to do a quick edit on it for me, and
this is what she
wants to change it to:
MFDC: Medium Frequency Direct Current. A method of
controlling welding in
which the operating frequency ranges from 400Hz to 1600Hz.
