Digital Elite Series - Weld, Cut, Grind by Personal Preference
Building on Miller's functionality, the Digital Elite series was designed for professional welders demanding control, flexibility, and durability, while remaining lightweight (only 18 oz.). Digital Elite helmets feature the precision of a digital control that allows users to set and store their shade, sensitivity and delay preferences for various applications: Welding shades 8-13, Cutting shades 5-8, Grinding shade 3, and X-Mode shades 8-13. The X-Mode provides full protection for those instances when there is an arc present, but the sensors are obscured. X-Mode eliminates interference from sunlight and out-of-position welding angles, such as those found in pipe welding or in obstructed or hidden-cavity welds-it also excels at low-amperage TIG welding (5 amps and below). When activated, those four arc sensors that come standard with the Auto-Off feature, respond in 1/20,000 of a second, allowing for complete eye protection.
"This helmet blends two ideas-the digital, military inspired design with the digital technology-to offer something new and honorary that we feel customers will respect and support" - Eric Sommers, Product Specialist, Arc Armor(TM) Welding Protection, Miller Electric Mfg. Co.
