ADF – Automatic Darkening Filter (Autodarkeningfilter)

The ADF, or automatic darkening filter, consists of liquid crystal displays (LCDs), electronic components, solar cells/batteries, sensors and a UV/IR filter. This is the part of the helmet that automatically darkens when a welding arc is struck. optrel provides a wide range of ADFs with various features and shade protection options. During certification, the quality of an ADF is assessed in line with the European standard. The following four criteria are graded in order to provide the welder with an indication of quality: optical class, scattered light, homogeneity and dependence on angle of vision. All ratings must be stated on the darkening filter: 1 is the highest rating and 3 the lowest.
