Light is a human essential. It impacts our behaviour, wellness, social life, and our economic activity. Over time, humans have developed the technology to create artificial light, allowing social and economic activity to extend into the hours of darkness. At the same time, scientific knowledge, and the application of this knowledge, have created a world of possibilities for lighting technologies and their varying characteristics. Lighting is now a very complex business and it has to fulfil a lot of requirements. This two-day technical seminar provides answers to frequently asked questions, such as:
- What is light, and what technologies to produce it are at our disposal?
- What are the differences between lumen and lux or candela and candela / m²?
- Why are uniformity and glare important?
- What is LED technology?
- Lighting requirements, conception, technologies and energy concerns
- Vision and photometry fundamentals
- Light source technologies
- Light fitting and auxiliary characteristics
- LED technology
- Analysis of an existing lighting installation
- Requirements of the EN 12464 standard
- Stages of a new lighting project
- How to use simulation software
- Energy concerns in lighting
Staff responsible for lighting installations (conception and maintenance).
