Battery Powered with Solar-Assist

The replaceable batteries will deliver up to 1900 hours of interruption free welding using shade 9 with MIG, Stick, TIG and Plasma power sources. Battery life is extended by inbuilt UV solar cells which absorbs power from the arc while welding – meaning your helmet will always be ready when you are.


Grind Mode

Comes standard with Grind Mode, meaning you can use one helmet for all your welding requirements - including weld preparation and clean-up.

Lens Delay Control

Used to adjust the time for the lens to switch to clear state after welding. Useful in eliminating bright rays present in high amp applications. Adjusts from 0.1 second-min to 0.9 second-max.

4 Arc Sensors

Provides continuous arc sensing capability. Lens automatically switches from light state 4 to adjustable welding shades 9-13 when an arc is struck. Lens darkening reaction time 1/12,500 sec.

Sensitivity Control

Sensitivity control makes the lens more responsive to different light levels in various welding processes. Use mid-range (2-3) sensitivity setting for most applications.
