1 foot

The direct illumination from one candle placed at a distance of one foot from a surface is defined as. 1 footfoot-candle (abbreviation = fc) FootFoot-candle is also known as a unit of light or light level.

1 lm

12in x 12in

The energy of light from a candle falling on a one foot square area is One Lumen (abbreviation = lm)

The total amount of light coming out of the candle is approximately 13 lumens The total amount of light coming out of 100100-watt AA-lamp is approximately 1650 lumens

Distribution Curve Polar Chart

Distribution Curve represents the total light pattern produced by a source Candela is the intensity of light at any given direction.

Lumen is an amount of ENERGY Candela is an amount of INTESITY All Lamps produce Lumens and Candelas, your lamp catalog may will only list Candelas for Directional Lamps

Refer to you lamp catalog and look at PAR-lamps for the column listing Candle Power and Lumen Refer to you lamp catalog and look at A-lamps for the column listing Candle Power and Lumen

All fixtures produce Lumens and Candelas, but these values can only be found in Photometry Reports

Fixture Efficiency is defined as the percent of lumens exiting the fixture with 100% being the initial lamp lumens. Efficacy is defined as the total lumens per watt.

Direction of Light

Goal of a luminaire is to put light where the user needs it Convenient way to classify luminaires is by the direction of light emitted from the luminaire Commission Internationale de lEclairage (CIE) sets up these classifications

Foot-candle = Candle Power Distance 2

Point-by-Point

Foot-candle =

Room Width = 12ft

D = 6.7

Foot-candle = Candle Power Distance 2

To solve for Angle, you can: 1. Scale the Drawing, or 2. Use Trigonometry

Tan (Angle) = Opp / Adj Angle = Tan-1 (Opp / Adj) Angle = Tan-1 (6 / 3) Angle = 63.4 degrees

With the exception of directly below

Point-by-Point Factors

You need to factor an adjustment if you want levels at other angles (IE Horizontal, Vertical Angles)

COSINE Adjusted!!

Foot-candle = Candle Power Distance 2

Calculated Levels are Initial. You need to factor an adjustment for Light Loss

Light Loss Factors to Consider

Dirt Lamp Depreciation Environment

Foot-candle =

MF = Maintenance Factors

Non-Recoverable Recoverable

Lighting Math

Non-Recoverable Light Loss Factors Ballast Factor (Fluourescent approx 90%) Ambient Fixture Temperature Supply Voltage Variation (Low Voltage approx 4%)

Lamp Burnouts (approx 80%) Lamp Lumen Depreciation (Fluourescent approx 70%) Fixture (Luminaire) Dirt Depreciation

Indirect Lighting (approx 65%) Industrial Environments (ranges from approx 50% to 80%) Open Fixtures Lamp exposed (approx 85%)

Lighting Math

Multiply one factor against another and you get the.. MF = LIGHT LOSS FACTOR!

Foot-candle =

Calculates the Average Illumination for a room. Takes into account the room surface reflectance's but assumes the surfaces are diffuse (not shiny!). Assumes an empty room (without furniture). Can also be used to determine the required Quantity of Fixtures needed for a target light level. Does not determine light fixture layout or location you must following mnfrs spacing criteria.

1. You need Room Dimensions and the Fixture Mounting Height. 2. You need to select a Light fixture 3. Determine the rooms Room Cavity Ratio (RCR). 4. Look-up the fixtures Coefficient of Utilization for the RCR. 5. Calculate!

Room Reflectance

Room comprised of Walls, Ceiling, and Floor. Walls typically have Doors and Windows All surfaces have a reflectance value to bounce light. Light from Light Fixture bounces off of all surfaces.

Surfaces with less reflectance will bounce less light Typical Reflectance Values:

75%75%-90% White, Off White, Grey, Light tints of Blue or Brown 30%30%-60% Medium Green, Yellow, Brown, or Grey 10%10%-20% Dark Grey, Medium Blue 5%5%-10% Dark Blue, Brown. Dark Green, and many wood finishes

Room Reflectance

Typical Commercial Values:

80% Ceiling 50% Wall 20% Floor 50% Ceiling 30% Wall 20% Floor

RCR =

Room Cavity Ratio (aka RCR) is the volume between the Fixture and Height of Calculation Workplane height is typically 30-inches above the floor A rooms RCR will always be between 1 and 10

RCR =

The RCR can vary depending on the height you want to calculateas shown here with the calculation height at the floor.

RCR = 5xMHx(L+W) Room Area

The RCR can vary depending on the height of the fixture.as shown here with Wall Brackets or Sconces.

RCR =

The RCR can vary depending on the height of the fixture.as shown here with Pendants.

RCR = 4.1

Spacing/Mounting Height (S/MH) for uniformity

Also known as CU Defines the percentage of light output that is expected from a fixture The value is determined by a CU table For our example of a RCR = 4.1 4.1the CU is in this range For commercial Reflectance of 80/50/20, 80/50/20, the actual CU value is this.

To Calculate Foot-candle level:

FC = Qty of Fixtures x Number of Lamps per Fixture x Lumens per Lamp x CU Area of the Room To Calculate number of Fixtures: FC = Total Lumens in the Room x CU Area of the Room

Qty of Fixtures =

FC x Area of the Room Number of Lamps per Fixture x Lumens per Lamp x CU

Qty of Fixtures =

What is the resulting Foot-candle Level at table height from four downlights?

Summary of Calculations

Overlooks aesthetics, psychological, and physiological variables of the human visual process. Since we cannot see foot-candles, it is more useful to calculate perceived surface brightness. It is the balance of these relative brightness, not the quantity of light levels, that determines successful Lighting Design. Calculation are to be used for lamp and fixture selection, or to evaluate a Lighting Design.

Who Defines Light Levels? z IES of North America

Recommended Practices Defines light levels and quality of illumination by

z z

Definitions:

Task = the work performed Applications = the project type (i.e. School, Commercial etc,

Light Levels

Published Light Level recommendations are for Foot-candles at the work plane (26 AFF) Recommended values refer to horizontal light levels on a work plane. They have limited significance to us when we interpret the actual environment. Such factors as lighting walls, brightness accents, shadows, sparkle, and color have a greater influence on emotional reaction. IESNA IESNAs recommend light levels are for an age range of 40 55 years old

Standard Age Range is 40-55 years old Less than 40 years old old Can reduce the light levels up to 1/3! Over 55 years old old Can increase the light levels up to 2/3!
