Often a customer would like to have a very effective and efficient lighting system. which is about 20 percent more. but it would not be one of my articles. Sometimes lighting retrofitters and end customers go too far trying to get a short payback or a high ROI. Each extended-life lamp costs about $. but check the number of sick days and talk with the workers. The benefits of the longer life lamps follow.

He is a member of IESNA’s Energy Management Committee and chair of its Retrofit/Upgrade Subcommittee. The retrofit option is often very cost effective when the parts and labor cost of the existing group relamping is ‘deducted’ from the retrofit parts and labor cost. With no out-of-pocket money the customer’s monthly savings are greater than the monthly finance charge. all fluorescent lamps will have to be recycled which costs about $. because lamps will not have to be replaced as often.

We must be carefull not to take credit for all the increases in task performance if the tasks are not all visual. Last month I pointed out that salaries cost 10 times more per square foot than real estate costs. That’s the future of lighting energy conservation. but the tenant’s spaces. the steep curves developed by Rea become plateaus. Missing from these obviously desirable goals is the human factor. with which to invest in other new properties. so it is important to filter out the mechanical aspects of task performance and only measure the visual component for our purposes and claims. but it does when you try to read small text at low levels of light. but many didn’t even comply with prevailing electric codes. but how do we prove it to business owners?

With the large power demand required for the sports lighting alone.32 mega watts of power. Included in this power distribution system is an emergency power system consisting of “on-line” uninterruptible power supply (UPS) units with generator back up. The polemounted luminaires are accessed for maintenance via portable motorized cages that attach to the poles and the grandstand luminaires are accessed via the roof. Emergency lighting is critical in night horseracing for safe cessation of a race in the event of a power outage. The tender documents (construction documents) required the manufacturer to perform extensive calculations to show compliance with all the target illumination levels and uniformity ratios as spelled out on the documents. Along with the elaborate power distribution system. an elaborate medium voltage power distribution system was designed. A momentary outage would be catastrophic during a race. Glare shields were required on all luminaires to limit the sky glow effect and spill lighting to the surrounding areas. Credit should be given to Tay-Hooi Seng of Philips for the success of this project in meeting and exceeding the lighting design goals.

Outdoor lighting can be a potent tool in helping these various stakeholders achieve their INTERPRETING OUTDOOR LUMINAIRE CUTOFF LRC’s John Bullough proposes a supplemental classification for quantifying a luminaire upward luminous flux goals. want to increase safety for drivers and pedestrians along roadways. light directed upward that contributes to sky glow and impairs our ability to see celestial objects in the sky. Figure 2 (left) Hypothetical luminous intensity distribution for a cutoff luminaire containing a 1000-lumen lamp (units are in candelas). and light emitted in the above horizontal is more likely to contribute to light pollution. and through light trespass. More light is not necessarily better light. or above the horizontal plane of the luminaire (see Figure 1). and the lumi- Figure 1. 44 LD+A/July 2002 www.org . The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) defines several outdoor luminaire cutoff classifica- tions. failing to meet the cutoff classification. The four IESNA classifications are defined as follows: full cutoff: the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere at or above 90 degrees from nadir is zero. Angles referenced by luminaire cutoff classifications. Government transportation agencies. two relevant zones are defined with respect to the nadir of a luminaire (the nadir is defined as the angle that points directly downward. Landlords often want to enhance the perceptions of safety and security on their properties. the distribution of light in directions leading to areas where it is unwanted. Figure 3 (right) Hypothetical luminous intensity distribution for a luminaire containing a 1000-lumen lamp (units are in candelas). each with differing photometric requirements. Business improvement districts might want to bring in shoppers and tourists to a historic downtown in order to stimulate economic development. Light emitted in the 80-90 degrees zone is more likely to contribute to glare and light trespass. for example. from the luminaire): one zone covers angles between 80 and 90 degrees above nadir. For these classifications. and there is also increasing awareness of ways that outdoor lighting can detract from enjoyment of the nighttime environment through light pollution. and the second zone covers all angles greater than 90 degrees above nadir.

and the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 10 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire semicutoff: the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere at or above 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed five percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire.org . Interestingly. a luminaire with this distribution would emit 11 percent of the lamp lumens between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir. do not in any way affect the cutoff classification of the luminaire.) Conversely.5 percent of the numerical value of the lamp lumens. Casual skimming of these definitions could lead one to assume that for a cutoff luminaire. The luminous intensity at any angle between and including 80 and 90 degrees from nadir is 100 candelas. In fact. which is 2. or that no more than 2. at angles below 80 degrees from nadir. and the luminous intensity www. which is 10 percent of the numerical value of the lamp lumens. The luminous intensity 90 degrees from nadir and at any angle above is 25 candelas. but the values are made with reference to luminous flux (lumens). The definitions are in terms of luminous intensity (candelas). consider another hypothetical luminous intensity distribution.iesna. also for a luminaire equipped with a 1000-lumen lamp. (The distribution of the remaining 73 percent of lamp lumens. Consider the hypothetical luminous intensity distribution shown in Figure 2. exceeding 10 percent (100 candelas) of the numerical value There is increasing awareness of ways that outdoor lighting can detract from enjoyment of the nighttime environment through light pollution luminaire. and nearly 16 percent of the lamp lumens above 90 degrees from nadir. The luminous intensity at one angle between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir is 125 candelas.nous intensity (in candelas) anywhere between 80 degrees and 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 10 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire cutoff: the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere at or above 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 2. This hypothetical luminaire can be classified as a cutoff luminaire.5 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the (in candelas) anywhere between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 20 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire noncutoff: there is no limitation of luminous intensity in the zone above the luminaire’s maximum luminous intensity Careful consideration of these classification definitions is very important when evaluating outdoor luminaires for their potential to cause light trespass or light pollution. no more than 10 percent of the lamp luminous flux is emitted between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir.5 percent of the lamp luminous flux is emitted above 90 degrees from nadir. neither of these assumptions is correct. shown in Figure 3. for a luminaire equipped with a 1000lumen lamp.

on the other hand. Such a luminaire might emit only a small fraction of the lamp luminous flux upward. Its purpose should not be to restrict thoughtful design. Bullough has written or co-written more than forty technical publications on the psychological and biological effects of light. understanding the proper application of the IESNA classifications. A proposed classification is offered below: Of course. one is concerned about minimizing direct uplight from a luminaire. such as light trespass and light pollution. this luminaire cannot be classified as a cutoff luminaire even though it emits significantly less light upward than the hypothetical luminaire in Figure 2. perhaps the lighting community will decide that no supplemental classifications are needed. Indeed. and solid state lighting. the distribution of the remaining 96 percent of lamp lumens at angles below 80 degrees from nadir do not impact the luminaire’s cutoff classification. but it would also emit only a small fraction downward. a supplemental classification for quantifying the total upward luminous flux (rather than the maximum upward luminous intensity) would be helpful in characterizing outdoor luminaires for their potential to contribute to light pollution. about half of the total light used in this application would be emitted directly upward. this proposed system of classification is just a starting point for a conversation about these issues.iesna. will always emit no direct uplight. However. Of course. lighting for transportation. serve to emphasize the caution that is required when interpreting the various cutoff classifications.) Because of its luminous intensity values.org . (As with the example above. and about one percent of the lamp lumens above 90 degrees from nadir. it could not be considered a full-cutoff or even a cutoff luminaire. Consider.5 percent (25 candelas) of the numerical value of the lamp lumens. A full cutoff luminaire. New York. www. If. such as the amount of luminous flux emitted upward. The luminous intensity at one angle above 90 degrees from nadir is 40 candelas. because of its higher-than permitted intensity at one angle between 80 and 90 degrees. An IESNA member. Knowing the luminous intensity from a luminaire in a particular direction is a key step in estimating the illuminance on a surface from that luminaire in that direction. for example. however. The proposed classifications above would tend to penalize inefficient luminaires. They do. it is not necessarily true that a cutoff luminaire will emit a smaller proportion of its luminous flux upward than a semicutoff (or even a noncutoff) luminaire. Perhaps. Such a luminaire would emit only three percent of the lamp lumens between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir. for example. an inefficient “globe” luminaire made of a poorly transmitting material used in a parking lot. consult a zonal luminous flux summary prepared by the luminaire’s manufacturer. The modest proposal above is simply one more voice in the conversation. and when all is said and done. the current IESNA cutoff classifications can be very helpful in selecting 46 LD+A/July 2002 luminaires that will meet such requirements. for example. and understanding when to obtain additional data about a luminaire’s performance. though. This is not to say that the classification definitions are not useful. As a result. Good outdoor lighting is likely to meet goals such as those outlined at the beginning of this article. If an outdoor lighting system should not exceed a particular illuminance on adjacent property.of the lamp lumens. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy. An installation of such luminaires would probably require more luminaires in order to achieve the light levels required for a parking lot because of the luminaire’s low efficiency. exceeding 2. Class 0: the luminaire emits no luminous flux directly upward (above 90 degrees) Class 1: the luminaire emits no more than 5 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Class 2: the luminaire emits more than 5 percent but no more than 10 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Class 3: the luminaire emits more than 10 percent but no more than 20 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Class 4: the luminaire emits more than 20 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Note that the classification scheme above is quantified in terms of the luminaire’s luminous flux rather than that of the lamps it houses. The author: John D. and illuminance often relates directly to issues of light trespass. Bullough is a scientist and adjunct assistant professor of architecture at the Lighting Research Center. even if the luminaires are equipped with the same lamp. with the result of less total light emitted directly upward for a given application. even if this same luminaire were fully shielded so that it emitted no light above 90 degrees. About 50 percent of this luminaire’s luminous flux would be emitted directly upward and about 50 percent downward. while minimizing possible negative impacts. are both fundamental to the design of good outdoor lighting. Certainly. this proposed system of classification is just a starting point for a conversation about these issues. To estimate the luminous flux emitted directly upward by a particular luminaire. these luminous intensity distribution examples represent extreme cases.
