T-LINK A COMPLETE SHIELD
THAT PROTECTS THE EYES
®
T-LINK® System is the new technology granting total
eye protection for the welding operator.
T-LINK® system
Bluetooth® technology for security
The innovative T-LINK® system represents a new
frontier for the safety of the welder and is the only
commercially available auto-darkening system that
guarantees total eye protection during welding.
With T-LINK the filter is activated prior to
the welding arc.
EC CERTIFICATION
The T-LINK system complies with European directives
2014/30/EU : ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY
2014/35/EU : LOW VOLTAGE
2014/53/EU : RADIO EQUIPMENT
and complies with DIN EN 379:2009 regulation
2
The T-LINK® system is based on the continuous dialogue
between the welding torch and the auto-darkening mask,
which is handled with Bluetooth® technology.
When the torch button is pressed, a Bluetooth® signal is
sent to the LCD screen filter, which responds by getting
dark a moment before the arc is activated

SAFETY IN ALL CONDITIONS
In carpentry or shipyard welding, it may occur that a
structure element inadvertently covers the filter sensors.
This causes the filter opening and the resulting irradiation
in the operator’s eyes.
With the T-LINK system, on the contrary, during welding
the filter remains obscured to guarantee total safety for
the welder.
4
MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY
IN TIG LOW AMPERAGE WELDING
A frequent critical condition is that of low amperage TIG
welding where the arc is so small that the standard optical
sensors don’t detect it easily. The typical consequence is
the classic filter flicker, which makes the operation very
difficult.
The T-LINK system also solves this problem because the
filter, which is sensitive to the passage of current in the
welding circuit, always remains active.
DYNAMIC OPENING DELAY
To efficiently handle LCD delay time, i.e. its transition
from dark to light, Trafimet Group has introduced a
feature that automatically determines the opening
time of the filter, depending on whether the operator is
making a short (spot welding) or a long welding.
The T-LINK system thus guarantees the maximum eye
protection and an excellent operating speed in any
working condition.
CUSTOMIZED MANAGEMENT
OF THE “STANDBY TIME”
The “STANDBY TIME” is a feature that allows the T-LINK
system to adapt perfectly to the different MIG / MAG and
TIG welding modes, 2 and 4 stroke and in general, to all
the parameters set on the generator, such as the ascent
ramp time, pregas time and all other settings that may
delay the passage of current.
Thanks to this feature, once the torch button is pressed,
the filter becomes obscured and remains obscured for the
set standby time, regardless of the current passage.
5
T-LINK® system
No more exposure to weld flashes
The reaction time of standard filters, however fast, still
exposes the eye to artificial optical radiation. In spot
welding, this “microflash” multiplies for hundreds or
thousands of times a day.
T-LINK is the right choice to protect the health of
welding operators.

RISKS FOR THE OPERATOR
HEALTHIER IS STRONGER
... chronic conjunctivitis is the most common affection;
the agents in question are primarily UV radiation in arc
welding ...
... some studies report the appearance of retinal
degeneration and maculopathy in subjects that perform
arc welding ...
... a recent revision of literature reveals an increased risk
of developing ocular melanoma in electrical arc welding
(Dixon and Dixon, 2004) ...
Protecting workers against hazards due to exposure to
artificial optical radiations.
The workers good health is the most precious thing for a
company. This is also required by the main directives and
guidelines on safety and health at work.
Each country fulfill the same prinsipals through their own
detailed regulations.
The safety of the welding operator, therefore, is no longer
just a responsible choice of the employer, but a clear legal
obligation.
