Electronic welding helmet switches from clear to dark in 0.0005 seconds
Linde Gases, a division of the Linde Group, has announced the introduction of the OHE350 electronic welding helmet, constructed for use in arc welding to protect welders in the construction, manufacturing, and engineering sectors.
The high-speed electronic darkening filter lens, which offers complete UV and IR light protection, has a switching time from clear to dark of 0.0005 second. Run by solar power, the lens comes with an enclosed backup lithium battery.
The helmet's durable, lightweight shell is designed to minimize the amount of welding fume in the user's immediate breathing area while remaining comfortable.
