Australian Standard AS2203.1-2005 requires a minimum light level of 0.2 lux at the floor under emergency lighting conditions. We outline the emergency luminaire testing & classification process, which takes into account maximum spacings between emergency lights for a range of mounting heights.
With the explosion of LED lighting products onto the market, the LM-80 is an international industry standard to assess and compare LED performance and an important part of the equation in assessing the complete LED luminaire's performance or reliability.
LM 79 is the Illuminating Engineers Society North America (IESNA) approved testing method to generate electrical and photometric measurements of solid state lighting (LED) products. It was first used in the US Energy Star program in 2008 and has since become the international standard method for integrated LED products.
The new Chamaeleon III App brings new customisation options for your car park, fire stair and corridor lighting. The Cham III App offers flexibility to set your Chamaeleon III light levels (both full light and standby) and run emergency light testing on demand without having to disconnect the luminaire from mains power or open the diffuserWinner of 2015 Award of Excellence Luminaire Design, NSW Illuminating Engineering Society.
With the rapid pace of LED lighting & controls technology development in the Australian market, there is often a time lag for Lighting Standards and Building Codes to be updated. A recent Lighting Council of Australia Technical Bulletin navigates a path forward via Section J6 of the Australian Building Code.
Luminaire spacing guides provide a simple reference to assist enLighten customers with achieving required maintained illuminance levels for corridors and indoor car parks. The reference guides are backed by lighting design simulations from the enLighten team.
Instead of an evenly lit corridor, this Zebra crossing effect causing discomfort and possibly even confusion in the mind of the travellers, is exactly what could go wrong when a fluorescent fitting is retrofitted with an LED tube. Under the guise of energy efficiency someone had sold the concept of an LED tube. Mounting an LED tube into a fixture designed for fluorescent light created this appalling outcome.
The enLighten carpark design guide has been prepared by our in-house lighting design team & draws on our extensive project experience with feedback from clients and consulting engineers across Australia.
