Innovative lighting solutions increase operator safety, health, and productivity in Mining environments.
Peachtree City, GA, August 24th, 2021. In the first half of 2021 the COVID-19 pandemic presents new challenges to the mining industry. Commodity prices have increased even more strongly than they did last fall. Most mining companies have made full recovery and the rollout of vaccines to counter the pandemic creates an optimism in the industry. The MINEXPO international, the industry’s most important leading trade fair will take place in Las Vegas, NV. from September 13-15, 2021. “MINEXPO fair is one of the sector's most important venues. “MINEXPO 2021 is the leading trade show in the mining sector and HELLA will once again be presenting its complete lighting product range.
HELLA will feature the new RokLUME 280N SMART light solutions with groundbreaking technology. We are excited to be able to meet face to face with customers, demonstrating our products and services.” says Vikram Gaur Vice President of Special Applications at HELLA, Inc. For the first time, HELLA can be found in North Hall this year (Stand 469). At the same time, the company is showcasing itself with a new products and innovations for the mining industry.
In order to increase operator safety, health and productivity in mining, the lighting and electronics specialist HELLA is launching a new work lamp on the market. The RokLUME 280N SMART can adjust its light very individually to different weather or driving conditions.
Experience shows that visibility in dusty, snowy, or foggy conditions can be significantly improved by using green or amber light. With the RokLUME 280N SMART, operators can change the color accordingly. In addition, the intelligent work lamp is equipped with a dimming function to reduce both blinding oneself and other operators. In addition, the color temperature can be continuously adjusted from warm white to cold white. This can increase visibility in many different situations.
For easy conversion, the RokLUME 280N SMART has the same dimensions as the standard RokLUME 280N work lamp and also has a 2-pole Deutsch DT plug. The work lamp is available in six different light distribution variants: with Diffuse Flood, Close Range, Long Range, Pencil Beam, Tunnel Flood (perfect for underground mining) or ZEROGLARE illumination. All light distributions are equipped with SMART functions for individual light adjustment. The work lamp is also equipped with a lifetime function. With it, the system gives advance warning before the headlamp's service life expires, thus preventing unplanned downtime. Also integrated is an anti-theft protection and a memory function for saving individual illumination settings.
Furthermore, the generation 2 of RokLUME 280N will be presented with a new ZEROGLARE reflector and improved light patterns and extended illumination variants. In order to warn and protect the surrounding area the RokLUME S700 RED with the VISIOTECH projection technology projects a wide red marking on the ground to marks danger and hazard zones. The High Bay and Floodlight for warehouse, workshop, high mast, and conveyor illumination are new to the product range. Both new work lamps are highly efficient lights and contribute to CO2 reduction in comparison to metal halide lamps.
