Miller Digital Elite Auto-Darkening Welding Helmets

With so many different welding helmets available, selecting a helmet isn’t always easy. If you’re a professional welder and serious about welding protection, performance and comfort, there are a few things to look for.

Not all welding helmets are the same and it’s important to consider differences in weight, switching speeds, the number of arc sensors, the quality of the lens and of course comfort.

The Miller Digital Elite series are premium helmets, designed for industrial welding applications and suitable for a variety of welding applications, including MIG, Stick, TIG, plasma cutting, flux cored and pulse welding.

Suitable for all stages of welding, the Digital Elite offers variable shade control and four modes:

  • Weld – For all welding applications
  • Cut – For plasma, laser, gas welding and cutting applications
  • Grind – For preparation and clean up
  • X-Mode – Electromagnetic arc sensing technology

Exclusive to Miller’s Digital Elite series, X-Mode ensures that the lens will only darken when an arc is struck. If you weld outdoors at low currents, in areas effected by low hanging fluorescent or strobe lights, or in positions that can obstruct the lens, X-Mode is the answer. No more flickering!

When it comes to headgear, the Digital Elite offers a lightweight solution with multiple settings, allowing operators to achieve the best fit and comfort. Weighing only 510g, the helmet is lighter than others and can be worn for longer periods, keeping fatigue to a minimum.

With 4 arc sensors the Digital Elite helmet provides continuous arc sensing for the most demanding applications.

Fitted with an auto-darkening lens the Digital Elite helmet provides visibility even when welding has stopped. When inactive the lens is usually set to shade 3 or 4, which is relatively easy to see through; then when an arc is struck, the lens automatically darkens lightning fast - 1/20,000 of a second, to shade 8 to 13. After welding, the dark to clear state speed of the lens can be easily adjusted from 0.1 sec to 1.0 for maximum control when welding.

For a better view the Digital Elite helmet comes with a built-in magnifying lens provision, allowing you a much closer view of what you’re working on.

Battery powered with solar assist, the helmet also offers an exceptionally long life before charging is required. Delivering up to 3000 hours of interruption free welding.

Tested in Australia the Miller Digital Elite helmet complies with New Zealand standards AS/NZS 1338.1 (Auto-Darkening) and AS/NZS 1337.1 B (High Impact).

Manufactured with quality and longevity the Digital Elite comes with a 3 year warranty (Auto-Darkening lens only) for peace of mind.
