Preparation and Operator Instructions
General
The welding helmets 1840 ADF secure proper protection of the eyes during welding. They
permanently secure protection against UV and IR radiation and sparks not only in clear but in dark
condition as well.
•
Shade degree of 1840 ADF helmets was matched in such a way to protect your eyes against
injury by the welding arc.
•
Direct looking at the welding arc is forbidden. Arc rays are very dangerous. They can cause
painful conjunctivitis and irreparable changes in your pupil.
•
Welding helmets 1840 ADF allow you to observe the welding arc very precisely. You needn’t
flip it up and down during welding. Both your hands are kept free and because of light weight,
the helmet reduces your fatigue and you can gain evident time savings.
WARNING
Batteries not installed please insert before use.
When the arc is striking the filter automatically darkens.

Before welding
•
•
•
•
Check the front cover lens and the front lens frame are securely in place.
Select the shade level you need for your filter setting by the proper knob.
Adjust headband so that the helmet is seated on the head as low as possible and near to your
face. Adjust helmet angle when in the lowered position by turning headgear.
Check the correct operation of the filter
Special Features
•
•
•
Eyes are always protected against ultraviolet and infrared rays, regardless of the shade level.
The switching time of the filter from dark to clear state can be adjusted manually. By the
means of a delay time knob the opening time can be adjusted to fast or slow. Before welding
adjust your delay time according to your welding process, in order to protect the eyes against
residual light of the afterglow of the work materials. The fastest opening time is set at 0.1 sec.
You can readjust shading during welding process by changing the setting of the proper knob.
Important Note

The helmets are only to be used to protect the eyes and face from radiation and sparks.
Lincoln Electric does not accept any liability if the helmet is used for another purpose and
improperly used. Helmets series Viking are not suitable for laser and gas-welding applications.
Helmet must never be placed on hot surfaces.
Never open or tamper with the shade filter.
Protect the filter from liquid and dirty contact.
Clean the filter surface regularly.
Always keep sensors and solar cells clean
Regularly replace the protective lens with Lincoln Electric originals.
WARNING
Do not leave the workplace with the helmet lowered in position; a bright light surface could
cause the filter darken unexpectedly.
Helmets should never be used as sunglasses when driving as this could lead to incorrect
identification of the color of traffic lights.
Materials which may come into contact with the wearer’s skin could cause allergic reactions to
susceptible individuals.
Eye protectors against high speed particles worn over standard ophthalmic spectacles may
transmit impacts, thus creating a hazard to the wearer .
Helmet Information
This Auto-Darkening Welding Helmet will automatically change from a light state (shade DIN4) to a
dark state (shade DIN9-13) when arc welding starts.
The filter automatically returns to a light state when the arc stops.
Match your welding application to the shade indicated on the shade chart. (See Page 8)
• Operating temperature: -10°C ~ 55°C (14°F ~ 131°F).
• Do not use or open the auto-darkening filter if damaged by shock, vibration or pressure.
• Keep the sensors and solar cell clean. Clean the filter cartridge using a soapy water solution and
soft cloth which should be damp but not saturated.
This Auto-Darkening Welding Helmet is designed for use with GMAW, GTAW, MMAW welding, or
Plasma Arc and air carbon arc cutting.

The cartridge provides protection from harmful UV and IR radiation, in both dark and light states.
The cartridge contains two sensors to detect the light from the welding arc, resulting in the lens
darkening to a selected welding shade.
• Do not use solvents or abrasive cleaning detergent.
• If cover lens is spattered or covered with dirt, it should be replaced immediately.
• Use only replacement parts specified in this manual.
• Do not use the helmet without inside and outside cover lenses properly installed.

Cartridge Operation/Features
Variable Shade Control
The shade can be adjusted from shade 9 to 13 based upon welding process or application (refer to
Shade selection chart on page 8). The variable shade control knob is mounted on the exterior of the
helmet shell. Grind mode can be selected by rotating the shade control knob counterclockwise till
an audible click is heard.
Grind mode is intended for grinding only not for welding.
Sensitivity Knob
You can adjust the light sensor by turning the Sensitivity knob to the left or right as shown in figure
below. Generally, turning the knob all the way to the right, or the highest setting, is selected for
normal use. When the helmet is used in the presence of excess ambient light or with another
welding machine close by, improved helmet performance can be obtained with a lower setting
turning the knob to the left to reduce the sensitivity.
Delay Time Knob
This control is designed to protect the welder’s eyes from the strong residual rays after welding.
Changing the Delay Time knob will vary dark to light time between 0.1 second (minimum) to 1.0
second (maximum). Turning the Delay Time knob to the left is maximum (1.0 second). This setting
is recommended for high amperage applications where the weld puddle is still very bright after the
welding arc has ceased and for situations where the filter may be temporarily blocked from seeing
the welding arc.
Solar Power
This helmet is powered by replaceable batteries and solar energy. The battery is located at the top
of the ADF cartridge. Replace battery when LOW BATTERY light is lit. See the specification chart
on page 4 for type of battery required.
WARNING
Batteries not installed please insert before use.
The batteries are located at the bottom of the ADF cartridge. Replace batteries when
LOW BATTERY light is lit. See the specification chart on page 3 for type of batteries required.
