We need to determine what is a lux and how we can have the value of lux . Lux is a unit of measurement, which describes how much light falls on a certain area. (This is different from a unit of lumens, which tells you the total amount of light emitted by a light source.) The number of lux gets smaller as you get farther away from a light source. The symbol of lux is “lx”.
How can we calculate the number of lux? One lux is equal to one lumen per square meter here is the formula to get the value of lux: lux = lumens / m2
We use lux because it is an efficient measurement for determining what we see as the brightness of a beam.
Sometimes we use the unit called “foot - candles”. Are there differences between lux and foot - candles? There is no difference between foot candles and lux in respect of what they measure. In the same way that feet, inches and metres both measure length, foot - candles and lux both measure the illuminance (the amount of light). The only difference would be the result of calculation because one foot - candle equals 10.764 lux and one lux equals 0.09 foot - candle. Why is different? It is different because lux uses meters and foot - candle uses feet.You will need different amounts of lux or foot - candles for each space such as:
Aisle circulation, storage of materials, low traffic areas, food and grooming activities, in these areas is recommended have 50 lux.
Here at Hyperlite we are working with “lighting simulations” that will help you determine how many lights and the spacing for each light.
The good news is that our products have a good amount of lumens such as:
