SECTION 1 − WELDING HELMET SAFETY PRECAUTIONS −
READ BEFORE USING
helmet 2018-08
Protect yourself and others from injury — read, follow, and save these important safety
precautions and operating instructions.
1-1. Symbol Usage
DANGER! − Indicates a hazardous
situation which, if not avoided, will
result in death or serious injury. The
possible hazards are shown in the
adjoining symbols or explained in
the text.
Indicates special instructions.
Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in
death or serious injury. The possible
hazards are shown in the adjoining
symbols or explained in the text.
This group of symbols means Warning! Watch
Out! ELECTRIC SHOCK, MOVING PARTS,
and HOT PARTS hazards. Consult symbols
and related instructions below for necessary
actions to avoid the hazards.
NOTICE − Indicates statements not related to
personal injury.
1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and repair this equipment. A
qualified person is defined as one who, by possession of a recognized degree, certificate,
or professional standing, or who by extensive knowledge, training and experience, has
successfully demonstrated ability to solve or resolve problems relating to the subject
matter, the work, or the project and has received safety training to recognize and avoid
the hazards involved.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the weld.
Wear a welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter to protect your face and eyes when
welding or watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1 listed in Safety Standards). Refer to Lens
Shade Selection table in Section 1-4.
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your helmet.
Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash, glare, and sparks; warn
others not to watch the arc.
Wear body protection made from durable, flame−resistant material (leather, heavy cotton,
wool). Body protection includes oil-free clothing such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless
trousers, high shoes, and a cap.


Before welding, adjust the auto-darkening lens sensitivity setting to meet the application.
Stop welding immediately if the auto-darkening lens does not darken when the arc is struck.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can damage hearing.
Wear approved ear protection if noise level is high.
OM-256476 Page 1
WELDING HELMETS do not provide unlimited eye, ear, and
face protection.
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense visible and invisible (ultraviolet
and infrared) rays that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the weld.
Use helmet for welding/cutting applications only. Do not use helmet for laser welding/cutting.
Use impact resistant safety spectacles or goggles and ear protection at all times when using
this welding helmet.
Do not use this helmet while working with or around explosives or corrosive liquids.
This helmet is not rated for overhead welding. Do not weld in the direct overhead position
while using this helmet unless additional precautions are taken to protect yourself from arc
rays, spatter, and other hazards.
Inspect the auto-lens frequently. Immediately replace any scratched, cracked, or pitted cover
lenses or auto-lenses.
Lens and retention components must be installed as instructed in this manual to ensure
compliance with ANSI Z87.1 protection standards.
READ INSTRUCTIONS.
Read and follow all labels and the Owner’s Manual carefully before installing, operating, or servicing unit. Read the safety information at the beginning of the manual and in each section.
Use only genuine replacement parts from the manufacturer.
Perform installation, maintenance, and service according to the Owner’s Manuals, industry
standards, and national, state, and local codes.
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these fumes and gases can be
hazardous to your health.
Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
Ventilate the work area and/or use local forced ventilation at the arc to remove welding fumes
and gases. The recommended way to determine adequate ventilation is to sample for the composition and quantity of fumes and gases to which personnel are exposed.
If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the manufacturer’s instructions for
adhesives, coatings, cleaners, consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an air-supplied respirator.
Always have a trained watchperson nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and
lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.
Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays
of the arc can react with vapors to form highly toxic and irritating gases.
Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or cadmium plated steel, unless the
coating is removed from the weld area, the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an airsupplied respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements can give off toxic
fumes if welded.

screen should turn on. Reinstall
the lens assembly.
Left and right battery trays are
not interchangeable in the Digital Elite lens assembly. The
auto-darkening helmet will not
work if battery trays are
installed on the wrong sides.

Optional Magnifying Lens
Starting at the top, slide magnifying
lens into the helmet retaining brackets. Align the magnifying lens with
the auto-darkening lens assembly.

Reverse procedure to remove
magnifying lens.
To prevent lens fogging, install
flat side of magnifying lens toward auto-darkening lens.
SECTION 8 − MAINTENANCE
NOTICE − Never use solvents or abrasive cleaning detergents.
NOTICE − Do not immerse the lens assembly in water.
The helmet requires little maintenance. However, for best performance clean after each use. Using
a soft cloth dampened with a mild soap and water solution, wipe the cover lenses clean. Allow to air
dry. Occasionally, the filter lens and sensors should be cleaned by gently wiping with a soft, dry cloth.

SECTION 9 − TROUBLESHOOTING
Trouble
Remedy
Auto lens not On – autolens does not darken momentarily when the On
button is pressed.
Check batteries and verify they are in good condition and installed
properly.
Not switching – auto-lens
stays light and does not
darken when welding or
cutting.
Stop welding or cutting immediately: Make sure the lens is turned
On.
Check battery surfaces and contacts, and clean if necessary.
Check battery for proper contact and gently adjust contact points
if necessary. This is particularly important if the helmet has been
dropped. Verify left and right battery trays are installed on the
correct sides.
If power is On, check the mode settings. Also review sensitivity
recommendations and adjust sensitivity if possible.
Clean lens cover and sensors of any obstructions. Make sure the
sensors are facing the arc; angles of 45 or more may not allow
the arc light to reach the sensors.
Not Switching – auto-lens
stays dark after the arc is
extinguished, or the autolens stays dark when no
arc is present.
Reduce Sensitivity setting (see Section 3-6). In extreme light conditions, it may be necessary to reduce the surrounding light levels.
Sections of the auto-lens
are not going dark, distinct
lines separate the light and
dark areas.
Stop welding or cutting immediately: The auto-lens may be
cracked which can be caused by the impact of dropping the helmet.
Switching or Flickering –
the auto-lens darkens then
lightens while the welding
or cutting arc is present.
Review the sensitivity setting recommendations and increase the
sensitivity if possible. Be sure the arc sensors are not being
blocked from direct access to the arc light.
Inconsistent or lighter
auto-lens shading in the
dark-state, noticeable on
the outside edges and
corners.
Referred to as an angle of view effect, auto-darkening lenses
have an optimum viewing angle.
If the lens remains dark, press the Auto On/Off button to return
lens to the clear state.
Weld spatter on the auto lens may also cause cracking. (The lens
may need to be replaced; most cracked lenses are not covered by
warranty).
Check the lens cover for dirt and spatter that may be blocking the
arc sensors. Increasing Lens Delay 0.1 − 0.3 second may also
reduce switching.
The optimum viewing angle is perpendicular or 90 to the surface
of the auto-lens. When that angle of view varies in the dark-state,
welders may notice slightly lighter areas at the outside edges and
the corners of the lens. This is normal and does not represent any
health or safety hazard.
This effect may also be more noticeable in applications where
magnifying lenses are used.
