Why choose Auto Darkening Helmet (AD helmet) for your welding work?
Auto-darkening helmets eliminate the need to flip the helmet between welds. This
minimizes the neck strain that can develop when using a fixed-shade helmet over several
hours. It also means you can focus all your attention on controlling your torch and making
accurate, high-quality welds.
Which factors should to consider if you buy Auto Darkening Helmet?
1, Switch Speed: It indicates how long it takes the lens to darken once it senses the
arc. The faster the switching speed, the less fatigue on your eyeballs.Now most
auto-darkening welding helmets switch shades between 1/10,000 and 1/25,000 of a
second. Normally according to DIN standard, the switch speed 1/10000 is enough. This
factor is usually the customer’s priory consideration when buying the Auto Darkening
Helmet. Our company’s maximum speed can reach 1/25000.
The number of the Arc sensor can affect this speed. So, normally our helmet has four
sensors enable the helmet has better sensitivity, response and reliability in obstructed or
low amp applications.
2, Viewing Size: This is one of the major considerations in purchasing an auto-darkening
helmet and is where a large majority of the costs lie. The larger the viewing are, the more expensive
the helmet. Our helmet’s normal viewing size is 90x40mm. We also have other size available upon
3, Solar Power and Battery Life: Auto-darkening helmets are usually designed with an
internal, non-replaceable battery and solar assist panel.There is also another choice is replaceable battery and solar assist which can offer a potential for a longer service life than the ones that are powered with non-replaceable batteries as they have a service life of 5 to 7 years. Anyway, the cartridge with replaceable battery is more expensive than normal one.
4, Helmet Weight: With an auto-darkening welding helmet, most of its weight is from the filter
cartridge. A larger viewing area improves visibility but often adds weight. Weight is a major factor in
comfort, especially for professionals who wear helmets all day.
5, Some other factors: Such as Headgear is a big selling feature. If you are wearing the
helmet you want it to fit properly and be comfortable. Look at the number of adjustments the
headgear has such as the angle & position adjustments as well as the durability of it.Skin
Coverage refers to the amount of neck coverage that the helmet provides. Keeping your neck
protected from the ultraviolet and infrared rays is also very important.
Which kind standard and certificate for the Auto Darkening helmet
should meet or have? ANSI Z87.1-2003 or DIN 9-13 the normal standard the helmet should meet. And it is utmost necessary for the Chinese exporter to have the CE certificate to export this kind helmet! Our
company’s helmet usually meet the DIN or ANSI standard. And we have the CE certificate.
