Koehler Lighting Products today introduced its new Wheat Gen II cordless cap lamp. The Gen II, for second generation, lamp provides great sight performance by increasing miners’ visual acuity. This sight enhancement improves safety with better object and hazard recognition, combined with reduced fatigue.

“The Koehler optical staff has created a cap lamp that sets a new standard for vision underground,” said Mark Dirsa, president, Koehler – Bright Star, LLC. “Our goal is to enhance vision and keep your workers safe in low light conditions. Koehler’s innovative lighting solutions are the best-in-class in sight and reliability and long product life cycles, which are directly linked to safety and lowest cost of ownership.”

Dirsa said the new Gen II cap lamp targets enhanced illumination of an entire work area. It provides miners maximum central and peripheral vision to better recognize objects and hazards. This allows miners to make decisions that help keep them safe.
