LFI 2019 Workshop: Hands-on Introduction to Light Measurement & Standard, Philadelphia, PA USA

This course teaches light measurement principles and practices. We begin with terminology and key CIE and ISO standards, including LED concerns such flicker and bio-hazards. We progress to measurement techniques and processes, focusing on best practices. Putting this knowledge into practice, everyone performs hands-on measurements using professional systems. You will measure modules and fixtures, generate IES standardized files, and load these into lighting planning software, seeing the entire process from end to end, learning the real-world, practical aspects of lighting science. Each course module includes an open question and answer session to address specific needs and unique requirements of participants.
