The VegaView 2.5 Welding Helmet opens up a whole new visual experience to you in light state. The much brighter view of your working environment increases both safety and efficiency in the workplace. Thanks to Optrel’s latest optical technology, you can enjoy a true color view of the welding process at Shade Levels 8-12.

Optrel’s new VegaView2.5 offers the clearest view possible in light state with Shade Level 2.5 improving the visibility of welders’ environment by 400%. Compared with traditional auto darkening welding helmets, VegaView2.5 offers the world’s clearest view in the light state.

Optrel optimizes the view of colors in the VegaView2.5 with an unprecedented view of realistic color, enabling welders to easily see LEDs on welding devices without raising their helmets.

Vewview2.5 is available with a model compatible with the NIOSH approved Optrel e3000 PAPR system. The e3000 features a high performance particulate filter (TH3) that protects welders from exposures to smoke, gas and other particulates.

The VegaView2.5 is one of the lightest auto darkening helmets on the market weighing only 17 ounces. It’s ergonomic design and ratchet headgear minimizes strain on the head and neck, ensuring comfort throughout the work day.

By simply clicking the external grind mode button, the auto darkening mode is disabled. You can then see you surroundings in light state 2.5 as you grind.
