Photometric Testing Efficiency

Photometric Services for General Lighting Fixtures

We measure with our goniophotometers the angular light distributions of luminaires and we provide the data in a standardized file format (EULUMDAT or IES) for using with Dialux or Relux. We can also analyse the results for different parameters in a separate report.

Maximum dimensions of luminaires: 50 kg and 2.9 m.

Services according to following measurement specifications

  • EN 13032-1 Measurement of photometric data of lamps and luminaires
  • LM-79-08 Electrical and Photometric Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products
Luminous Intensity Distribution

Standard measurement service contains  
  • EULUMDAT file (or IES if necessary)  
  • Short report (PDF/html)
  • Luminous intensity distribution (cd, cd klm¯¹)
  • Luminous flux (lm) / Light output ratio (%)
  • Downwards flux fraction, DWFF (%)
  • Input power (W)
