Lincoln Electric launches new VIKING 2450 ADV Series welding helmets for construction and building applications. The auto-darkening helmets feature a professional user interface, LED technology and 4C optics. An integrated LED light comes standard with each new VIKING 2450 ADV Series helmet.
“The intelligent modular LED light was custom designed to improve productivity, quality, and safety in one simple attachment,” said Mike Clifford, Lincoln Electric product manager, welding gear and tools. “It dynamically adjusts to the environment to improve users’ visibility of the weld, work piece and weld joint.”
Operators can activate or deactivate the light using a low-profile external control. When activated, the light illuminates the work area for workspace visibility during arc-off time. To save power and increase battery life when welding, the LED light automatically turns off when the operator strikes an arc and turns back on when the arc is extinguished. The light also features a removable battery pack powered by a AA battery. Replacements can be conducted without interfering with the helmet’s primary functions.
