The Scorpion TGX

caving and mining lamp

This is a new concept in underground lighting and as such is rather unique in that it has laminated glass. This is a feature that to the best of our knowledge no other lamp has.

The Glass: Test results are startling with hefty blows from a small ball hammer leaving the glass unmarked. I actually tried to break the thing to see the breakage pattern but had to give up. This glass is true laminated being 2 glass with plastc interlayer thermally bonded. "Mulilayer" is not the same thing, beware of imitations.

 

The lamp will to the best of my knowledge be unique in having this type of glass. All the other lamps with the usual Scurion type rimless glass are polycarbonate.

Nice helmet bracket!

The Switch (Tested on a custom Lynx X_Basic )

 

"I have now used my upgraded Lynx X_Basic on three further digging trips into speedwell cavern. I made no attempt to avoid mud covering the new switch, and changed the brightness of the lamp at least twenty times on each trip. After repeated muddy fingers pressing the button, the switch did require noticeably more pressure for it to work. With extra pressure the switch worked reliably.

Washing the switch in between trips has restored the switch pressure to new."
