The view of the welding pool while welding is top class.
The massive viewing window is beneficial for beginners as they can concentrate on the weld instead of finding a comfortable position to see. As for professionals, it enables them to enhance operator control.
4C Welding Lens Technology
The use of this technology further improves visibility and at the same time minimizing the green glow to help eliminate eye-strain. It incorporates an automatic darkening filtration to avoid flares and an added lens shade control which varies from DIN5 to DIN13.
This helmet features a grind mode with setting light to help you see what you are doing. Equipped with four sensors, you will no longer miss any area in your range of vision that you can not see properly but which you should be able to see.
