The light calculation efficiency method is an approximate lighting design, with which the number of luminaires in the room can be determined very easily on the basis of just a few entries, specifying the type of luminaire and the lighting level. This BuR Lighting online light calculation tool is designed for exclusive use of BuR Lighting High Bay luminaires.
- The light distribution of the luminaire indicates how the light is emitted.
- The combination of light distribution and wattage results from the room geometry (e.g. wide beam luminaires with lower wattage for rooms with low mounting heights).
- The light color of a light source is measured in degrees Kelvin; 2800-3000K stands for warm white, 4000-4500K for neutral white and 5500-6000K for daylight white.
- The reflection coefficients of the room boundary surfaces (ceiling, walls, floor) tell us what percentage of the light hitting them is radiated again.
- When calculating the illuminance, the degree of soiling anticipates the soiling of the room and the aging of the light sources over time.
- The level of the average illuminance depends on the different working and visual tasks in the working plane.
- The room height is measured from floor to ceiling.
- The pendulum length is the depth of suspension of the luminaire from the ceiling.
- The working plane is the height of the working surface from the floor.
- The light point height is the height dimension between the working surface and the mounting height of the lights.
