Question about Uvex Optrel Satellite Welding Helmet # K601
Posted by Anonymous on
I open my Optrel OSE Satellite K601 hood and found they use glue on the outside edges and then a rubber compound over the electronics. Rubber compound also holds the case tight. You can gently cut a square out of the plastic case about 1-1/2" square around the information printed on the back side of the case. Under neath you will find (2) panasonic 3V button cells. Each have 2 tabs that are soldered to the board. The battery's have a plastic sleeve shielding them from the rubber compound, so they will pop out easy after removing solder and lifting tabs. Be careful heating tabs as there are some small SMD resistors and caps very close to tabs. Once removed you can by the batteries with tabs at many battery suppl stores on line and solder back in. Or do what i did and buy a double battery holder with battery clip retainers, then mount in helmet and wire it to the board. Then use epoxy to install cut out piece of plastic on case. I actually used the new plastic adhesive that uses UV light to cure (Stuff is awesome). DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN CASE!!!!! You will regret it as it took me all day to repair the damage i caused to open it. Just cut around the data on the back of the case and the battery's are under neath. Each are about the size of a quarter. Also to remove the side control panel, pull the large knob off the panel, then un-clip the back cover inside the hood, then pull out on the panel then turn it to its side and then slip it through the hole in the hood.

Make sure the lens over the solar panel is clean and place in the sun for 4 hours. If it still doesn't work, these are considered non repairable, and will have to be replaced. Sorry.
