Miller’s Digital Elite Auto-Darkening Helmets
November 4, 2008


Miller Electric Mfg. Co. offers its Digital Elite Series auto-darkening welding helmet that automatically differentiates between sunlight and the welding arc in outdoor construction applications. Ideal for steel erection, pipeline construction and heavy equipment repair, the Digital Elite Series enables workers to see through the lens while not welding and offers the flexibility of using one helmet for welding, cutting and grinding while outdoors.Previous generations of auto-darkening helmets confuse sunlight with the welding arc and automatically darken when there is not a welding arc present, which renders the auto-darkening technology useless. The X-Mode technology electromagnetically senses the arc and provides protection when the traditional arc sensors are blocked, a common occurrence in out-of-position repairs, pipe welding, or in obstructed or hidden-cavity welds. With its digital controls, the Digital Elite helmet allows users to quickly switch between four modes — Welding, Cutting, Grinding and X-Mode –while retaining their preferences for shade, sensitivity and delay.
