User Instructions
Important: Keep these User Instructions for reference.
List of Warnings within these User Instructions
When used in accordance with these User Instructions, this product is designed to help protect the wearer‘s eyes and
face from harmful radiation including visible light, ultra-violet radiation (UV), infra-red radiation (IR), sparks and
spatter resulting from arc, plasma, or gas welding processes where shade 5, 8-13 is recommended. Use of this product
in any other application such as laser welding or welding processes that require shade 14 or higher filters may result
in permanent eye injury and vision loss. Do not use any welding product without appropriate training. For proper
use, see supervisor, or User Instructions or call 3M in U.S.A.1-800-243-4630. In Canada, call Technical Service at 1800-267-4414.
Always wear ANSI Z87.1-2003 compliant safety spectacles in addition to any welding helmet. Failure to do so may
result in permanent eye injury and vision loss. In Canada, follow CSA Z94.3-2007 and/or the requirements of the
authority having jurisdiction in your region.
Before each use, perform the inspection described in these User Instructions to ensure that all components are
installed and functioning as intended. Use of 3M™ welding helmet assemblies that do not meet these inspection
requirements or failure to use genuine 3M™ Speedglas™ replacement parts may result in permanent eye injury
and vision loss.
Do not use welding filters that are cracked, pitted or otherwise damaged as these conditions may compromise eye/face
impact protection and may allow harmful UV and IR radiation to pass through causing permanent eye injury and
vision loss.
Should the 3M™ Speedglas™ Auto Darkening Filter (ADF) fail to switch to dark mode upon striking an arc, stop
welding immediately and inspect the ADF as described in these User Instructions. Continued use of an ADF that
fails to switch to the dark state may result in permanent eye injury and vision loss. If the problem cannot be
identified and corrected, do not use the ADF; contact your supervisor, distributor or 3M for assistance.
The Speedglas 9100 welding shield is not designed for heavy duty overhead welding/cutting operations due to the
risk of burns from falling molten metal.
Only operate these ADFs at temperatures between 23°F (–5°C) and 131°F (+55°C). If used outside of this range, the
filter may not perform as designed and may result in permanent eye injury and vision loss.

GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
This product contains no components made from natural rubber latex.
Intended Use
The 3M™ Speedglas™ Helmet 9100 Series with auto-darkening filter (ADF) is designed to help protect the wearer’s
eyes from harmful radiation including visible light, ultra-violet radiation (UV) and infrared radiation (IR) resulting
from certain arc, plasma and gas welding/cutting processes when used in accordance with these User Instructions.
Three sensors on the front of the auto-darkening filters (ADFs) react independently at the moment the welding arc is
struck and cause the filter to darken. The ADF switches back to the light shade after the welding arc has stopped.
Two lithium batteries are used as the power source. Protection from ultra-violet radiation (UV) and infrared radiation
(IR) is continuous, whether the ADF is in the light or the dark state. In the event of battery or electronic failure, the
welder remains protected against UV and IR radiation equivalent to the darkest shade setting (shade 13).
3M™ Speedglas™ ADFs allow the welder to view their work clearly and safely during set-up, during the weld and
after without interruption and without the burden or delay of manually lifting the shield or filter. 3M™ Speedglas™
ADFs allow manual arc welding to be performed more quickly and accurately in comparison to traditional passive
welding filter plates.
USE INSTRUCTIONS AND LIMITATIONS
Important Use Limitations:
• These products do not provide any protection from respiratory hazards that may result from welding processes or
from other sources. 3M™ Speedglas™ Helmet 9100 Series may be worn in conjunction with certain respirator
models. For more information about respiratory protection for welders, contact 3M Technical Service at 1-800243-4630. In Canada, call Technical Service at 1-800-267-4414.
• 3M™ Speedglas™ 9100 Series ADFs are not suitable for laser welding or welding processes that require shade 14
or higher filters. Use of this product for these applications may result in permanent eye injury and vision loss.
• Only operate the ADF at temperatures between 23°F (–5°C) and 131°F (+55°C). If used outside of this range, the
filter may not perform as designed and may result in permanent eye injury and vision loss.

ADF FUNCTION
On/Off
To activate the ADF, press the SHADE/ON button. The ADF automatically turns OFF after 1 hour of inactivity. The
ADF has three photo sensors that react independently and cause the filter to darken when a welding arc is struck. The
ADF may not turn dark if the sensors are blocked or the welding arc is totally shielded. Flashing light sources (e.g.
safety strobe lights) can trigger the ADF making it flash when no welding is occurring. This interference can occur
from long distances and/or from reflected light. Welding areas must be shielded from such interference.
Shade
Seven different shade settings are available, split into two groups, 5, 8 and 9-13. In order to see the current shade
setting, momentarily press the SHADE/ON button. To change shade, press the SHADE/ON button repeatedly. Move
the flashing LED to the desired shade. To shift between the two shade groups (shade 5,8) and (shade 9-13), hold the
SHADE/ON button down for 2 seconds. In all welding processes the arc should only be viewed with the recommended
dark shade. (Table 2)
Sensitivity Selection
The programming and sensitivity of the photo detector system can be adjusted to accommodate a variety of welding
methods and workplace conditions. To change the sensitivity setting, press the SENS button repeatedly until the LED
shows the desired setting.
Position
Light-State Lock (Grinding Mode) – switching function is disabled, remains in shade 3
Position 1
Least sensitive setting. Used if there is interference from other welders’ arcs in the vicinity
Position 2
Default setting. Used for most types of welding, indoors and outdoors
Position 3
For welding with stable welding arcs (e.g., TIG welding)
Position 4
For low current TIG welding or inverter-type welding machines
Position 5
For TIG welding where part of the arc is obscured from view
Position
Dark-State Lock – switching function is disabled, remains in selected dark shade
Light-State Lock
This setting is intended for grinding or other non-welding activities. When the ADF is locked in the light state (shade
3) the LED under the symbol will flash every 8 seconds to alert the user. The ADF must be changed to an appropriate
shade before arc welding. When the ADF turns off (after 1 hour inactivity), it will automatically return to the default
sensitivity setting 2.
Position 1-5
If the filter does not darken during welding as desired, increase the sensitivity until the ADF switches reliably. Should
the sensitivity be set too high, the filter may remain in the dark state after welding is complete due to ambient light. In
this case, adjust the sensitivity downward to a setting where the ADF both darkens and lightens appropriately.
6
Dark-State Lock
This setting locks the ADF in the selected dark shade. If the ADF turns off (after 1 hour inactivity), it will
automatically return to the default sensitivity setting 2.
Delay
The delay function allows the user to manually increase or decrease the recovery delay time (from dark to light)
according to the requirements of the welding method. The recovery time intervals are also automatically extended as
the shade increases. The time intervals are listed in milliseconds in Table 3. Although the Delay and Sensitivity
functions share the same LED display, they are separate adjustments.
2-Step Recovery
The two longest delay settings include an intermediate stage in the recovery. As the arc extinguishes, the
filter will briefly recover to shade 5 and then to shade 3. The time intervals for each stage are listed as d1 and
d2 in Table 3.
Tack Mode
This setting may help reduce eye fatigue resulting from the eye frequently adjusting to differing light levels
during rapid tack welding. As the arc extinguishes, the filter will recover to shade 5. If another arc is not
struck within 2 seconds the filter will return to the normal light state (shade 3).
Low Battery Indicator
The batteries should be replaced when the low battery indicator flashes or LEDs do not flash when the buttons are
pressed.
HELMET ADJUSTMENTS
There are seven adjustments that can be made to optimize comfort and shield position according to individual
preferences. (Figures 1 thru 4)
MAINTENANCE
Replacement of Outer Protection Plate
Remove silver front cover. (Figure 5) Replace the outer protection plate. (see Figure 6) Replace the silver front cover.

7
Replacement of Batteries
Remove the ADF cassette. Pull out the battery holders using a small screwdriver and replace batteries. (see Figure 11)
Correct battery orientation is indicated on the battery holders. ADF will be reset to factory default settings. The
9100V and Speedglas 9100X models have a solar panel to extend the life of the batteries.
Replacement of Headband Assembly (Headgear) (see Figure 12)
Replacement of Sweatband (see Figure 13)
Replacement of Head Protector and Ear/Neck Protector (see figure 14)
INSPECTION
Carefully inspect ADFs before each use. Cracked, pitted or scratched filter glass or protection plates can seriously
impair protection and reduce visibility. The sensors on the ADF must be kept clean and uncovered at all times to
provide correct function. (see Figure 15) Check for cracks in the shield and look for light leaks. All damaged
components should be replaced immediately.
To check for proper ADF operation, hold the ADF within a few inches of a fluorescent light bulb and observe the ADF
switch to the selected dark state. Depending on the light source, it may be necessary to temporarily increase the
sensitivity setting. Optionally, the ADF can be triggered by pointing any television or VCR remote control device at
the ADF sensors. NOTE: If the ADF does not function as described above, do not use and immediately contact your
supervisor or 3M representative.
CLEANING AND STORAGE
Clean the welding helmet with mild soap and lukewarm water. Do not use solvents. Clean the ADF with a
clean, lint-free tissue or cloth. Do not immerse ADFs in water or spray directly with liquids. Store equipment in a
clean, dry and dust-free environment at room temperature.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Condition
Possible Solutions
ADF will not turn ON
Make sure the batteries are installed properly
Make sure the correct batteries being used (CR2032)
Try replacing both batteries with new batteries, then check the Low Battery indicator
ADF does not trigger reliably or
turns light intermittently while
welding
Verify that the sensors on the front of the ADF are not blocked by weld spatter, hands,
pipes, or object being welded
ADF turns dark when others are
welding nearby
Reduce sensitivity. If this is still occurring at setting 1, use curtains or other methods to
block light from other welders’ arcs.
ADF steadily pulsing light/dark
with no arc present.
Check surrounding area for process or safety strobe lights. Strobe lights can trigger ADFs
from a long distance or by reflecting off ceilings. Reflected light from strobes not visible
to the eye may be strong enough to trigger the ADF. LED-based strobes will not cause
ADF interference.
ADF is “blurry”
Remove the protective film from both sides (if applicable) of both the inner and outer
protection plates
ADF has spatter bonded to the
outside and/or inside glass surface
ADF is permanently damaged and not covered by warranty. Always use outside and inside
protection plates.
Review the sensitivity adjustment instructions and select the appropriate setting for your
type of welding process
