Lighting needs to be designed with the task in mind. Different activities require certain quality and lighting levels. Ergonomically designed workplaces require enough light to see small parts, for better contrast, and be able to see moving parts much more readily. Safety concerns in parking lots lead to disaster when the public or workers trip over chains or there are trespasser concerns.
Accurate foot-candle and luminescence measurements are important when making decisions regarding the space or spaces to be illuminated. Selection of the number of lights, the colors, the work surface reflection, soft vs. diffuse can be made wisely when the proper survey is done.
Light meter calibration services can have an impact in a variety of ways including photosensitive materials, OSHA compliance, clean rooms, process capability, quality, liability, security concerns, regulatory violations, and the destruction of sensitive materials.
