Revolutionising Mine Safety: 2 in 1 Cap Lamp + Missing Person Locator

In the demanding and hazardous world of mining, ensuring the safety of personnel is paramount. PJ Tech, a South African company renowned for its commitment to mining safety, has introduced an innovative solution to significantly bolster rescue operations: the Smartlight-05-M1 2 in 1 Cap Lamp + Missing Person Locator.

This groundbreaking device is not just a testament to PJ Tech’s dedication to technological advancement but also a beacon of hope in the often-perilous mining environments.

Smartlight-05-M1, 2 in 1 Cap Lamp + Missing Person Locator Overview

The Smartlight-05-M1 is equipped with the latest technology, including a Missing Person Locating Transmitter integrated within the battery pack. This feature is the heart of the lamp’s capability to aid with the rescue of trapped personnel.

In emergencies, such as when miners are trapped behind rockfalls, the portable MISSING PERSON LOCATING DEVICE MinSearch-08 can determine the miner’s location within a 30-meter sphere through solid rock.

This precision significantly minimises rescue time, drastically improving success rates and offering peace of mind that is priceless in critical situations.

Additional Features of the Traceable Cap Lamp Smartlight-05-M1

PJ Tech’s technical manager, Peter Nowakowski, emphasises that the lamp’s design incorporates more than just advanced location technology.

It includes five LEDs, with four in the headlamp and one in the battery casing, ensuring illumination even if the cable is damaged. The lamp’s lightweight design, weighing only 1.3 kg including the battery, headlamp and cable, makes it easy to wear without causing fatigue.

For enhanced safety, the lamp can be equipped with an optional RFID tag, furthering its utility in complex mining environments.

Operational Mechanics:

One of the most remarkable features of the Smartlight-05-M1 is its operational mechanics. The system operates on a low-frequency position transmitter, housed within the battery pack.

Uniquely designed, the positioning device always remains active. This means that even after 50% of battery charge for the light is exhausted, the signalling device continues to operate using the other 50% of battery charge that is dedicated to signal emitting. On full battery charge the 2 in 1 device lasts for up to seven days, ensuring that miners are traceable even in prolonged emergency situations.

Global Context and Compliance

The global mining industry has already recognised the benefits of such advanced safety equipment. In Europe, the use of searchable cap lamps like the Smartlight-05-M1 is mandatory in some cases, highlighting the critical importance of this technology in modern mining operations.

PJ Tech, holding sole rights for the Sub-Saharan region, is at the forefront of bringing these lifesaving innovations to a wider market.
