The Optrel Vegaview 2.5 combines crystal clear vision with clean and cool respiratory protection provided by the Optrel E3000 powered air respirator.

The vegaview2.5 opens up a whole new visual experience to you in light state. The much brighter view of your working environment increases both safety and efficiency in the workplace.

Thanks to optrel’s latest optic technology, you can enjoy a detailed and true-colour view of the welding process at shade levels 8-12.


The optrel vegaview2.5 lets the welders’ most desired wish come true: bright view. With its unrivaled brightest ADF view with shade level 2.5, vegaview2.5 improves the visibility of welders’ environment by 400%! Compared

with traditional autodarkening welding helmets, vegaview2.5 sets the world record in the light state!


By simply clicking a button the grind mode is activated, and auto darkening mode is disabled, enabling you to see your surroundings in light state 2.5 as you grind.


Thanks to a special UV/IR filter, the vegaview2.5 offers a real colour experience never seen before and finally brings colour into the world of welding.


Weighting only 482 g (17 oz), the vegaview2.5 is one of the lightest auto- darkening welding helmets available.
Its ergonomic design minimizes strain on the head and neck, ensuring comfort throughout the work day.

e3000 PAPR

Buckle up & take a deep breath

Very good aeration and ventilation is necessary for all work areas generally. Ventilation solutions are elementary, but not always sufficient. An additional local exhaust ventilation in the immediate vicinity of a work station is hard to bring about and also risks suctioning off valuable protective gases. 

If each worker is nevertheless to be comprehensively protected from hazardous particles, personal protective breathing equipment is indispensable. 

The e3000 PAPR system allows optrel to guarantee

  • the highest class of protection (TH3) from respirable particles (smoke, aerosol, and dust). Breathing air 
  • becomes cleaner by a factor of up to 500.
  • even air distribution in the fresh air helmet.
  • automatic air flow control.
  • additional cooling effect for keeping a cool head about you.

Better working conditions for greater efficiency and comfort and better performance.
