Title
(EN) ARC TIME RECORDING SYSTEM FOR AUTO-DARKENING WELDING HELMET
Abstract
(EN)

A welding helmet can record a welding time based on an arc intensity detected by a sensor mounted on the helmet. A configured level is compared with the arc intensity detected by the sensor to determine a welding duration. Individual welding times from multiple welding instances can be accumulated over a period of time to provide a total welding time for an operator. The total welding time may be stored in the welding helmet.
