How to interpret a light distribution curve?

Light distribution curve is a visual representation of the light diffused by a luminaire. Types of light distribution: Symmetrical light distribution In the figure below, you can see two lines radiate from the centre, a solid line and a dotted line. These lines indicate the light distribution and intensity from various angles. The solid line […]

Need of Lighting Design with Dialux

A well-designed method always provides a good level of performance in lighting based on the application. Fewer lumens yield poor performance, but more lumens represent wasted energy. So, making lumen in correct performance is the task. Any building designs optimal capacity can be specified with an adequate calculation procedure. Lighting designers use the photometric data of […]
