Comparing IESNA and NEMA Light Distributions

Beam spread is one of the most important yet misunderstood factors to consider when determining the right fixture for the job.

After all, a spotlight would not provide the same wash of light as a parking lot fixture, even with the same wattage and lumen output.

Thankfully, light distribution has already been categorized in two different ways, IESNA and NEMA.

With different metrics, classifications, and applications, both of these are crucial tools for deciding the lighting application between different light fixtures.

The Benefits of Measuring Light with Footcandles

As a relatively new industry, lighting can sometimes be difficult to understand or quantify. For example, the term Footcandle is commonly used when measuring the amount of light on a given surface. But what exactly is a footcandle, and how can this be used in a practical application?

Well for starters, we can no longer use Wattage as a reliable way of measuring the brightness of a light, as LED technology is continuously improving and changing to become more and more efficient.
