How is lighting performance measured with the ANSI/PLATO FL1 protocol?

ANSI/PLATO FL1 Burn time (hours) This corresponds to the length of time during which lighting is optimal. It is measured 30 seconds after the lamp is turned on and for as long as the lamp takes to drop to 10 % of maximum light output. Lighting distance (meters) This is the maximum distance between the lamp and the location where only 0.25 lux of illumination remains. The measurement is taken when the lamp is turned on, using new batteries. Lighting distance depends directly on brightness, but mainly on the shape of the beam. Brightness (lumens) This measurement is taken between 30 and 120 seconds after the headlamp is turned on. It indicates the maximum light output, when the lamp is first turned on, using new batteries. Reserve lighting (outside the scope of ANSI/PLATO FL1) In addition to these measures, Petzl guarantees reserve lighting. Reserve lighting provides enough light for walking. However, the light may not be sufficient for fast-paced activities (such as running, mountain biking, skiing…).

About Petzl

The Petzl Group mission is to create innovative tools and services that allow men and women to progress, position, and protect themselves in vertical environments, as well as to light their way in the dark. The Petzl adventure began with Fernand Petzl’s passion for caving, a passion to which he dedicated his talents as a craftsman. Petzl expertise began to grow with the design and crafting of solutions for ascending, descending, belaying and moving about in the dark. In 1970, the first “Fernand Petzl” brand products were produced in a workshop in Saint-Nazaire-Les-Eymes, Isère, France. Since then, the Petzl company, established in 1975, has grown into an international enterprise, all the while preserving its personal feel and the passion that drove Fernand Petzl.
