Shade Level

<p>Bei ausgewählten expert-Produkten werden speziell beschichtete Filter eingesetzt, die eine bessere Sicht auf das Schweissobjekt ermöglichen. Die Farberkennung durch diese Art Filter wurde so optimiert, dass die Farben der Umgebung fast farbecht wahrgenommen werden können. Somit kann der Schweisser auch ohne Probleme rote LEDs der Schweissmaschine ablesen, ohne den Helm anzuheben was die Effizienz im Schweissprozess und die Sicherheit weiter fördert.</p>
