Northern Light Technologies is a proud producer of advanced safety and productivity technologies for underground mining, tunneling, and heavy industry. Since 1984, our high-quality cap lamps have been engineered to provide workers with the best lighting and safety in the harshest environments.

We offer products for unique mining needs, from MSHA and IECEx approved all-in-ones to proximity warning and wifi-tracking cap lamps.


MSHA, ATEX, and IECEx approved cordless, all-in-one cap lamp.

Consisting of only a headpiece, the award-winning Polaris cap lamp is ruggedly crafted for use in the most harsh and dangerous environments, including underground mining and tunneling operations. The Polaris is certified intrinsically safe to IECEx, M1, and US standards by ATEX, Testsafe, and MSHA.

Polaris uses a high-capacity lithium ion battery and an LED light source that is housed in a single high-impact, dust, and water-resistant plastic shell (IP67). Incorporating two light sources plus an emergency flashing beacon mode, the main light output ranges from a minimum of 5,000 LUX, to a typical 6,500 LUX. The Polaris also offers the lowest cost of ownership for any cap lamp on the market.


The next generation in cap lamps.

The Northern Light® Eagle mining cap lamp is an IP67, proximity-ready Wi-Fi-enabled corded cap lamp with best in class LED and lithium-ion battery technology. The Eagle cap lamp has a 3 button headpiece connected via a lamp cord to a high powered battery pack that is mounted on the back of the hard hat.


he Northern Light Technologies (NLT) tradition of creating industry leading cap lamps continues with the introduction of Genesis.
Building upon the technological advancements of the award-winning Polaris,
the second generation, all-in-one Genesis cap lamp has the ability to integrate tracking tags, while keeping the battery and light source in a single enclosure.
You can choose from a variety of RFID or Wi-Fi tags,
all powered by the Genesis high capacity battery.
Using the contemporary design of the Polaris,
the Genesis maintains the superior light pattern
consistent with all NLT lamps, providing a
perfectly focused spot.


The Rebel is Northern Light Technologies’ rugged, cordless cap lamp designed for outdoor and industrial applications.

The tough, high powered and hands-free Rebel is compact in design and provides five hours of constant high beam light, or up to 20 hours at medium output.  LED that lasts for at least 20,000 hours, the Rebel is a portable, all-in-one LED cap lamp with three light settings, including a super-high 11,000 Lux beam and low beam at minimum of 3,000 Lux.  Color filters allow for maximum light and visibility while the light source includes a patented reflector for the ultimate light output and a perfectly focused spot. The high-powered lithium Ion battery can be recharged over 500 times, reducing unnecessary waste and saving you money.  The Rebel is mountable to a wide variety of headgear, including hats, helmets, belts, clothing, machinery, and vehicles.


The Eclipse IS cap lamp system from Northern Light Technologies boasts reliable power for up to 14 hours with its compact, lithium-ion battery – but weighs less than a pound! Featuring a super bright LED lamp, the Eclipse is designed for outstanding impact resistance and supports both Wi-Fi and RFID tags for tracking purposes. Besides its reduced weight and size, the Eclipse is surprisingly affordable, comes with a one year warranty and is MSHA, ATEX and IECEx approved for use in hazardous environments.


Not only a cap lamp, the Messenger RT cap lamp is a robust, simple two-way text messaging device from Northern Light Technologies® (NLT) that provides powerful real time communication in a convenient and intuitive package.  The 433 receiver embedded in the unit allows the lamp to be tracked by placing NLT active RFID tags in key locations; this tag information is then sent to the server by the lamp via the Wi-Fi network.  Free text messages (up to 60 characters) are sent via the Wi-Fi network through Northern Light Technologies’ Digital Mine Software and received by the cap lamp user within seconds.

A brief flashing sequence on the LED cap lamp alerts the miner a message has been received, with the duration and persistence of the flash indicating the priority level of the communication.  The miner uses a toggle switch to read the message, which is scrolled across the LCD display, and uses the same toggle to send an appropriate response from 40 predetermined messages.  Multiple replies can be sent in response to the same message, with each response uniquely logged and time-stamped on the server, creating real-time updates as underground circumstances change.  The tracking accuracy that the Messenger RT provides is unparallel in the mining industry, opening up endless productivity and safety opportunities for your operation.
