2 Underground Mining Presents Many Challenges.
Environment is primary concern. Atmosphere. Ground conditions. No lighting. Atmospheres can be deadly. Mine gases are common in underground mining. Causing deadly conditions. Ground conditions are an ever present danger, Gravity works 24/7. Man can try and control gravities effect. But ultimately nature will always win. If a person wants to know what total blackness is ask a blind person. If you want know what total blackness is enter a underground mine, and turn out your light. Just like the blind man. You eyes cannot comprehend the blackness, and you will stumbling around in the dark just like the blind man. Darkness makes all men equal.

3 History Teaches: Fire was first tool used for illumination in underground mining for centuries. Later candle sticks were used up until the 19th century.

4 Miners Needed Better Lighting.
Candles created poor lighting. Candles started fires, killing thousands of miners over the centuries. Methane gas explosions were a big problem.

5 Walking Down the Drift Was a Problem.
Then someone thought. Let’s stick a candle on a cap. The cap lamp was born. Still problems persisted. Wax in your eye burns. Hair burns really nice. Smells great too!

6 Invention Is the Mother of Necessity.
Lamps progressed from candles to carbide. From carbide to batteries. Better illumination was a must. Carbide lights worked better than candles. But still had limitations. When the carbide when out you were left in the dark, and methane gas explosions were still possible. Carbide lamps were not intrinsically safe.

7 Invention of Portable Battery Units.
Greatly increased visibility. Reduced fire hazards. Increased safety in working areas.


Light-weight ergonomic design with kidney-shaped Ni-Mh battery pack design. Modular assembly with tamperproof design. Ni-Mh Battery reduces size and weight with longer battery life .

Intrinsically safe. Suitable for use in Methane environments. Maintenance free and Environmental friendly Cap Lamp. Compatibility with existence Lead Acid Battery Charging Rack.

Low voltage alert warns user battery is low. Constant discharge voltage provides consistent bright LED light for entire shift. Auxiliary LED for emergency escape light.

Short Circuit Protector Over Charge & Over Discharge Cut Off In these type of lamps there is no leaking, corroding and pollution.

15 Advantage of Ni-Mh Battery over Li-ion Battery:
Nickel Metal Hydride battery is suitable for use in methane environments. Not suitable for use in methane environments. Special precautions must be taken to avoid Li-Ion battery fire up or explosions that can cause serious injuries.This is because Lithium when it comes in contact with water or air's moisture burns violently.

16 Advantage of Ni-Mh Battery over Li-ion Battery:
Nickel Metal Hydride battery cells contain no lead or cadmium They contain only mild toxins, so it is more environmentally friendly than other types of battery cells. Lithium is hazardous and not environmentally friendly.

17 Advantage of Ni-Mh Battery over Li-ion Battery:
Nickel Metal Hydride battery are simple to store and transport- Transportation conditions are not subject to regulatory control. Lithium is subject to strict transportation regulations. Shipment and storage of larger quantities of Li-ion batteries may also be subjected to regulatory control.

18 Advantage of Ni-Mh Battery over Li-ion Battery:
Nickel Metal Hydride chemical is an established and proven metal & chemical combination. Lithium technology is not fully mature — changes in its metal and chemical combinations affect battery test results.

19 Advantage of Ni-Mh Battery over Li-ion Battery:
Nickel Metal Hydride battery is stable and never has any heating problems. Lithium Ion batteries are volatile and have a history of overheating related problems. They may lead to serious fire or explosion that can cause injuries & major disaster in underground methane environments. One other hint, don’t shine your light in other’s miners eyes. Or you might just see the light.

24 Operation of SMARTLITE-R/E Cap Lamps:
Inspect lamp before and after each use. New Revolutionary Advanced Smart Charging / Discharging Design. Charging Cycle – When cap lamp is put on the charging rack then its red light will come on to indicate that proper charging is taking place.

25 Operation of SMARTLITE-R/E Cap Lamps:
After the cap lamp is fully charged then the red light will turn to green to indicate that the battery is fully charged. From now onwards the charging will continue in trickle mode to top-up and maintain full charge status. The green light will remain on. Please note that until the green light comes on the cap lamp is not fully charged.

26 Operation of SMARTLITE-R/E Cap Lamps:
If during charging process on the rack the red and green light blink alternatively then there is an operational error and the battery pack is not being charged. While charging care should be taken to not switch on the main or the auxiliary led light. Discharging ( In use ) Cycle – When the cap lamp is in use there will be no indicating light and both the red or the green light will be off

27 Operation of SMARTLITE-R/E Cap Lamps:
The red light comes on when the cap lamp needs to be charged and put on the charging rack. On prolonged continued use even after the red light is on then subsequently this red light will start to blink. The cap lamp should now be immediately put off to prevent damage to the battery.

28 Smartlite-R/E Cap Lamps Are a Safety Tool.
It illuminates hazards and by allowing better identifications of hidden objects in the dark.

29 Cap Lamps Are Simple to Learn & Practice.
There are three basic commands: Come forward. Move away. Stop.

30 Come Forward Command: This command is simple. Rotate head in a wide circular motion. This commands indicates that the individual doing the command would like you to come forward. If you are on foot it may be to talk. If you are on a piece of equipment it may be to bring the equipment forward.

31 Move Away Command: This command is made by moving the head up down like you nodding yes. When used properly this command indicates that the miner needs you to move away. If you are on a piece of equipment it means move your machine down the drift.

32 The Stop Command: This command is simple. It means stop NOW!!!
Move the head back and forth like your motioning “no” with the head. This command is a power command and should always be heed. It means that the miner wants you to stop now. He may see a hidden danger that you don’t see. Always pay special attention when you see this command. It can mean the difference of life or death. Moving back or forward a little bit can be catastrophic, and may result in injury or worse death. Two different fatalities at this mine could have been prevented by obeying cap lamp signals. Both happened on the 1525 level several years ago. One fatality involved a 30 ton truck backing into another truck and killing the operator. The other involved a water truck backing over an edge into an open stope. Both accidents could have been prevented through proper recognition of cap lamp signals. In the case of the water truck driver a fellow employee was using lamp signals trying to warn the driver of the unknown hazard behind him. But not heeding the signals given, led to the employee backing over the edge into the stop, and ultimately his death.

33 Overcoming Communications Hindrances.
If you don’t understand signals stop & talk verbally. Overcome the deer in the headlight look. Work with one another, not against. Learn to use lamp signals they are more empowering than hand signals when used properly.

34 Proper Care For Smartlite-R/E Cap Lamp:
Inspect cable. Check both Led’s.(Main & Auxiliary Led) Check glass lens. Check for Miners number plate. Check for missing parts.

35 Proper Care For Smartlite-R/E Cap Lamp:
Leave lamp in charger. If your lamp goes dead, while underground, lamps are at various places underground. Follow up. Return spare lamps back to original chargers. When finished.

36 SMARTLITE-R/E Motto: Working Accident Free Requires Everyone’s Help. Going Home Safely Everyday is The Most Important Thing You Can Do Today!

37 Safe Working Motto: There is No Service So Needed,
No Job So Important, That We Cannot Take The Time To Do The Job Safely.
