True-color, auto-darkening filters from Weldcote (Kings Mountain, N.C.), a division of Zika Group, feature clear, true-color blue, high-definition technology that enhances the visible spectrum for optimal clarity and reduced eye fatigue.
Designed for passive-style welding helmets, the high-quality, auto-darkening filter, also referred to as a retrofit lens, provides users with vision accuracy, light diffusion and consistent shade. The new Weldcote filters fit all passive style helmets that feature a standard 2 X 4 passive filter lens, and some auto-darkening helmets, depending on style.
With a view area of 3.62-inches by 1.42-inches (5.15-square-inches) and a thickness of 0.2-inches, the fixed filter is available in 9, 10, 11 or 12 shade number. It has a start in shade 3-grind mode.
“We continue to expand our line of welding supplies in order to offer welders a full line of choices that ensure their safety as they are doing their very important jobs,” said Joe O’Mera, CEO of Weldcote. “From entry level welders coming into their careers, to experienced welders, Weldcote supports the industry as a high-quality, one-stop shop solution that helps welders do their jobs safer, easier and faster.”
Weldcote’s new filters have two independent arc sensors, a near instant (0.3 second) switching time, a solar cell with a nonreplaceable lithium battery backup. The filters come with a two-year warranty and meet ANSI Z87.1, CSA Z94.3 and CE EN 379 standards.
