GL16 - Li-ion SAFETY LAMP
Research was undertaken by the University of New South Wales (Australia) in the late1980’s to study the behaviour of the human eye in differentlighting and working conditions. The light distribution of the Oldham main light source was engineered using this research to provide the optimalworking light. The Oldham G caplamp achieves a spot of 9500 Cd over 3 degrees (this is the normal area of focused sight for the human eye) and10 Cd over 120 degrees.
The battery voltage seriously effects the light output from a halogen bulb, where a small percentage change in voltage greatly reduces the lumenoutput of the light source. To counter this effect, the main bulb has been designed and manufactured to Oldham’s specific criteria, which stabilisesvoltage toward the end of the daily working shift, and optimises light output. This results in a brighter lighting performance from 8 to 12 hours, higherthan any competitor. The main bulb has a life of more than 1000 hours.
The retina of the human eye plays a critical role in how we see. The retina,

L16 BATTERY PERFORMANCE:
A measured 12-hour discharge of the battery shows the highperformance characteristics of the lithium-ion technology.
Cycle performance tests indicate that even after 1000 shifts, the lampwill still achieve more than 85% of the original rated capacity,ensuring that the operator has excellent lighting performance from the
lamp even at the end of its operational life.
L16 LI-ION BATTERIES MUST BE RECHARGED ON “OLDHAM” MULTI-
STAGE MICRO-PROCESSOR CHARGERS IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE
MAXIMUM LIFE AND PERFORMANCE.
