Do not stare at operating lamp. May be harmful to the eyes.
Ne regardez pas fixement le faisceau de la lampe de face. Peut être dangereux pour les yeux.

Choosing a Petzl headlamp means selecting a work tool designed to withstand the most severe conditions of use, while ensuring maximum reliability.
Petzl headlamps ensure maximum visual comfort for the user: lighting is uniform and has no bright point in the center, no spotting, no dark areas. Each batch of LEDs is tested and selected according to proper color homogeneity, low energy consumption, and high luminous flux. Each Petzl headlamp is individually inspected before leaving the factory. These operations include a test to measure lighting performance and beam homogeneity with the help of a digital camera.
Petzl has chosen to present information in its product instructions about the risks to the eyes associated with LED lighting. For this, the company uses the IEC 62778 and EN 62471: 2008 standards, Photobiological safety of lamps and devices using lamps. This standard classifies lamps according to risk groups.
The risk groups are as follows: - Risk group 0: no risk - Risk group 1: low risk The product presents no risk related to exposure limits under normal usage conditions - Risk group 2: moderate risk The reflex to look away from the lamp suffices to reduce the risk
Each model must pass particularly stringent tests: - for shock resistance, fall resistance and crushing (including at low temperatures) - for functional reliability (mechanical endurance) - individual inspection and test at the end of the assembly line (final quality check) - for water resistance
Optical quality for optimal visual comfort
Consideration of photobiological risk
Testing from design to manufacture
Presence of visual defects: lack of precision, discomfort, fatigue
Presence of a central bright spot: blinding
Perfectly uniform beam: user comfort
