North American association of lighting engineering IES has launched to solve parking lot lighting, other external lighting, and three new standard of indoor fluorescent products test documents.
Three new standards for the center with Lighting, respectively called “Lightingfor exterior environments external environment Lighting” (RP – 33-14), “Lighting for parkingfacilities parking facilities of Lighting” (RP – 20-14), and “Approved method forphotometric testing of indoor fluorescent luminaires indoor fluorescent photometric test method of recognition of lamps and lanterns (LM – 41-14).Two of the Recommended (it Practices) RP standard is mainly suitable for solid state lighting (SSL), but also confirms the LED light source has in fact this kind of application of dominance.Another test method standard is, as its name implies, specific fluorescent lighting.
RP standard was published, the work of lighting design is based on the experience to guide the Commission’s IES professionals, and covers a wide range of different applications. For example, we recently held a webcast covering the new road lighting standard RP-8 key changes and additions. The LM standard defined test and calculation methods, described the role of performance component or lighting system manufacturers in order to ensure a fair competitive environment. For example, LM-80 for LED performance package. Similarly, LM-79 is used in lamps and fixtures feature.
Lighting recommendation parking facilities RP-20-14 focused on fixed and intended to guide the newly installed lighting. In the IES it is not recommended to apply it to an existing installation, unless the existing lighting system needs to be updated lighting technology. This standard covers outdoor and a covered garage. These guidelines make in order to optimize safety for pedestrians and vehicles.
External ambient lighting recommendation RP-33-14 and focus sky glow, light intrusion problem of external lighting devices. It provides a model using the guidance Model Lighting Ordinance lighting regulations. Specifically, this document will help lighting designers / description of who determines the proper lighting specifications applicable to the specific application area.
Indoor testing standards defined test procedures to ensure “adequate, unified approach to determine and report the performance of indoor fluorescent lamps with light.” Like the previous file as LM, LM-41 test the product in detail the thermal environment and lighting control solutions. The goal is accurate and consistent photometric data, to ensure that regardless of product from any vendor, we have been a fair comparison.
