Sample Recommended Lighting Levels from the 9th Edition of the “IESNA Lighting Handbook” Category Type of Visual Task fc lux Example Space/Task A Tasks occasionally performed 3 30 Parking Garage B Simple orientation/short visits 5 50 Corridor C Working spaces/simples tasks 10 100 Restaurant dining D High contrast/large size 30 300 Office (general) E High contrast/small size 50 500 Reading/writing F Low contrast/small size 100 1,000 Manual drafting G Near visual threshold 300 1,000 3,000 10,000 Operating Room “Lamp” • electric source of light • aka “bulb” or “tube” “Luminaire” A lighting unit typically consists of a lamp (or lamps), ballast (for gas discharge lamps), fixture or housing, internal wiring and sockets, diffuser (louver or lens). fluorescent lamp ballast louver diffuser some “luminaires” lens “Luminous Efficacy” • The ratio of the light output (lumens) to the power input (watts) • Measured in lumens per watt (lm/W) watts efficacy = lumens watts lumens Typical Efficacy of Various Lamp Types lumens/watt 200 175 150 125 100 75 50 25 0 Incandescent Mercury Vapor LED Fluorescent Metal Halide High Pressure Sodium “golden-white” “monochromatic-yellow” Low Pressure Sodium Typical Impact of Efficacy… 6 W as “lumens” (≈10% of input power) Incandescent Lamp - 60 W 54 W as heat (non-visible radiant + convective) + 6 W as “lumens” (≈40% of input power) Fluorescent Lamp - 15 W + 9 W as heat (non-visible radiant + convective) Fluorescent Lighting Electric current passes through a gas produces ultraviolet radiation, which is then converted into visible radiation by a phosphor coating on the inside of the tube. fluorescent lamp ballast The ballast provides the necessary starting and operating electrical conditions. (The ballast consumes some power.) Tubular Fluorescent • Widely used in commercial and institutional buildings. • There have been significant improvements in the energy efficiency of these systems in recent decades. Tubular Fluorescent Lamps Older technology, Lower efficacy (older installations) Newer technology, Higher efficacy (newer installations) Fluorescent tube lamp designations: “F32T8” lamp diameter (e.g. T12 = 12/8”, T8 = 8/8”, T5 = 5/8”) lamp nominal wattage (not including ballast effect) (e.g 25 W, 32W, 40 W) Fluorescent Ballasts Older technology, Lower efficiency (older installations) Magnetic Ballast Newer technology, Higher efficiency (newer installations) Electronic Ballast Example ballast impact: Typical fixture with two 32 W T8 lamps...
