    What is X-Mode?

    Sensors are normally triggered by the light when you strike an arc. In X-Mode, the sensors are triggered by the electromagnetic field that is created when you start a weld.

    X-Mode overcomes instances where obstructions block a sensor when welding out-of-position. Even when there is an obstruction, the sensor will still trigger because of the electromagnetic field.

    For outside work, X-Mode will stop the lens constantly lightening and darkening because of the light triggering the sensors. The sensors will only trigger the lens to darken when you start to weld.

    Australian Standards

    Tested in Australia, the lens and helmet comply with Australian Standards AS/NZS 1338.1 (Auto-Darkening) and AS/NZS 1337.1 B (High Impact)

    Improved Digital Controls

    Digital controls with large displays allow the user to easily adjust modes, shade levels, delay and sensitivity.

    Battery Powered with Solar Assist

    Two replaceable lithium batteries, with solar assist, deliver up to 3000 hours of use.

    Lightweight Headgear

    The lightweight headgear has multiple settings to achieve the best fit and comfort.


    At only 510g, the helmet can be worn for long periods, keeping operator fatigue to a minimum.
