Optrel e684 Welding Helmet w/ e3000X PAPR 4550.465

As a welder, you are the top athlete among the craftsmen. Smoke, changing light conditions, and heat characterize the hard everyday work. Then there is the great responsibility. A faulty weld seam can, under certain circumstances, be a matter of life and death. That is why a perfect welding helmet is all the more important. This makes welding work safer, more efficient, more precise, and more comfortable. Only the best is good enough for that. Don't settle for less.

The Optrel e684 is the perfect welding protection when it comes to joining aluminum, chrome-nickel alloys, special metals, and steel. Thanks to the continuously stepless protection level range from protection level 5 to protection level 13, the optrel e684 is particularly suitable for gas welding and cutting, for microplasma and TIG / TIG welding applications as well as for most other arc welding processes. The Optrel e684 is your loyal partner especially in the application areas of vehicle and rail vehicle construction, chemical, container, machine, and plant construction, pipeline construction, and shipbuilding.

Experience the difference.

  • Automatic shade level setting (autopilot)
  • Shade level range 4/5 to 13
  • Ultra HD quality with true color vision and classification 1/1/1/1 
  • Expandable with breathing protection system

Protection level: automatic. Colors: true to life. Comfort: all-inclusive.

Perfect view when welding - only Optrel can do that:

  • Fully automatic adaptation of the protection level to each welding process in the protection level range 5 to 13. 
  • Color-fast view in the entire protection level range.
  • Ultra-HD quality of classes 1/1/1/1

The adaptive protection level regulation automatically sets the suitable protection level in the range 5 to 13. This is ensured by an additional brightness sensor that measures the intensity of the welding arc. So you always stay perfectly protected, regardless of the parameters you are currently welding with. Manual adjustments are no longer necessary. But of course possible at the push of a button.

* The autopilot can be switched off if necessary and the protection level can be set manually.

The fully automatic machine with Ultra HD quality.

Color-true view

A specially developed UV / IR filter enables the realistic color perception typical of Optrel and brings colors into the world of the welder.

4 times absolute top marks

The glare protection cassette of the Optrel e684 proves the highest standard in all 4 classifications for assessing the image quality:

  • Optical class: class 1
  • Scattered light: class 1
  • Homogeneity: class 1
  • Viewing angle dependency: class 1

The extremely good viewing angle dependence shows the quality of the Optrel anti-glare cassette and makes working with the Optrel e684 so pleasant. 

For maximum comfort when welding:

  • Integrated particle filter of the highest class (TH3)
  • Reliably protects against smoke, aerosol, and dust

E3000X: X-tend your possibilities.

  • Highest safety class (TH3) respiratory protection
  • Protects reliably from smoke, aerosols, and dust
  • Ready for A1B1E1 gas filter
  • Integrated, automatic air flow control and calibration
  • Expendable with mountain breeze odor filter

Reliable Protection against Smoke, Aerosols, and Dust.

Optrel products offer the highest quality and performance levels to protect welders and grinders.

With the new e3000X PAPR system you complement your Optrel PAPR mask with protection for your respiratory system, which makes no compromises in matters of safety, health, and comfort.

X-tended Application Possibilities

The new Optrel e3000X PAPR system protects you reliably from particles like smoke, aerosols, or dust. Furthermore, the mountain breeze odor filter keeps you free from awkward smells and unsanitary ozone. In environments with hazardous or toxic gases, the new A1B1E1 gas filter (available from Q2/2020) saves you from organic, inorganic, and acid gases. The new e3000X adapts to your requirements.

X-tended Productivity

As soon as the filter in the respective airflow level is saturated, you receive an acoustic alarm, and the new e3000X‘s intelligent alarm function switches fully automatically to the next lowest airflow stag – without you having to interrupt the work process.

X-tended Performance

We have managed to double the efficiency of the new e3000X by combining a performance-optimized design with the latest battery cell technology. With up to 18 hours of battery life and 240 liters of air per minute available at the touch of a button, the new e3000X is the perfect choice for the most powerful ventilated breathing protection system available on the market.

X-tended Safety

The new e3000X shows you the battery charge level at the touch of a button and calibrates the airflow automatically. So you can get through the day safely.
