As versatile as you.




Welcome to the top league. The panoramaxx2.5 combines the enormous field of vision with optrel's well-known 2.5 technology and offers excellent visibility in every working situation – whether for welding, cutting, grinding or straightening work. Whatever you want, the optrel panoramaxx2.5 automatically follows your versatile field of activity.

Very big cinema. You decide on the movie.

Luke D., 23 years old

„After completing my apprenticeship as a metalworker, I have decided I want to work with professional equipment. I simply love the versatility of my job. Welding, grinding, straightening. The panoramaxx2.5 is as versatile as my field of activity. The sublime field of vision helps me to master the various tasks easily and safely.“

Closer. Further ahead.

A nose cutout changes everything.

Without a doubt, the nose is one of our most important organs and takes our senses into the fifth dimension. But when it comes to enlarging the welder's field of vision by positioning the anti-glare display, ergonomically optimal, closer to the eye, the nose gets in our way.

So we threw all conventions overboard and dared the technological chin-up to give the display a nose cutout. The result is impressive. More than 600% enlargement of the field of view without increasing the weight and shape of the welding helmet. The practical additional benefit is, due to the clear separation from the mouth area, you no longer breathe on the display and thus prevent the anti-glare window from tarnishing.

Our pragmatic approach is so new and innovative that several patents have been granted for it - and guarantees its uniqueness.

The optrel panoramaxx as a personal assistance system.

Complete equipment as standard.

In addition to the large field of vision and crystal-clear optics, which form an actual assistance system, all members of the panoramaxx series are equipped with the latest digital electronics. The patented Shadetronic and Fadetronic technologies in combination with the 5-point sensor system and the re-charge energy concept are the core elements.

They enable welders to focus on their work and allow them to work without interruption. This results in quality and efficiency. Thanks to the ergonomic design of the perfectly fitting optrel lsoFit® headband, the panoramaxx is light as a feather and fatigue-free. All panoramaxx welding helmets are highly robust at the lowest weight and protect users against external mechanical impacts such as high speed particles which hit the helmet at up to 120 m/s. And thanks to grinding mode, which can be easily operated externally, and the incomparable appearance, even grinding work is more fun.


The patented optrel ShadeTronic® technology automatically adjusts the protection level to the changing light conditions of the welding arc. This allows welders to work without interruption.

A sophisticated Shadetronic sensor continuously measures the light intensity of the welding arc and regulates the glare protection progressively from SN 4 to a maximum of SN 13 fully automatically.


With the patented optrel Fadetronic technology, the opening of the anti-glare display can be continuously adjusted after welding. The unpleasant afterglow is faded out – especially for high ampere applications. Eye fatigue is significantly reduced thanks to the display opening smoothly and being adapted to the eye.


The unique and environmentally-friendly optrel re-charge energy concept ensures that welding helmets always have enough energy. Thanks to the latest solar technology, a rechargeable lithium-polymer battery is recharged either by the welding light or by the ambient light. In addition, the battery can also be charged directly with any USB charger via a micro-USB interface. The tiresome changing of batteries is no longer necessary and the environment is protected.

5-point Detection

The optrel 5-point detection integrated in the panoramaxx series is an intelligent sensor control with five sensors. Sophisticated software and clever positioning of four sensors at the corners and one sensor in the upper centre ensures the glare shield is switched on and off perfectly, even in the most difficult lighting conditions and in constrained positions, as well as permanent dark level adjustment (Shadetronic®, patented) during welding.

Grinding mode

Like most optrel welding helmets, the products in the panoramaxx series have a grinding mode. It can be conveniently operated externally by means of a robust and well-protected pressure switch. Once activated, the anti-glare display remains deactivated, which guarantees trouble-free grinding work. At the touch of another button, the glare shield is then immediately ready for welding work. Your optrel welding helmet becomes a true multifunctional work safety device.

As versatile as you.

All innovations in one product.

optrel's think tank has dealt intensely with the topic of how to expand the field of vision and is now in a position to introduce an uncompromising solution. Thanks to the unique glare protection cartridge with a nose cut-out, the display – which is optimal from an ergonomic perspective – is positioned closer to the eye and thus enlarges the field of vision six-fold in comparison to conventional welding masks without adding to the weight.

The panorama view in connection with the 2.5 brightness level – as well as the detailed colour rendering – makes it possible for the welder to experience an entirely new visual dimension.

The panoramaxx features the patented optrel auto-pilot function. This is based on a unique sensor concept that measures the brightness of the welding arc and then automatically adjusts the correct blackness value of the glare protection cartridge.

With panoramaxx, optrel also embarks on a new era with regards to energy supplies. Featuring a high-performance solar cell and a lithium-polymer energy pack that can be recharged with a USB- cable, the panoramaxx is fast becoming the energy-independent, maintenance-free welding helmet for professional users.

The panoramaxx combines the latest optrel innovations of the most recent product ranges with an unprecedented panorama view – the most advanced welding helmet of its time.

Sensitivity Adjustment

<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>
