Spectral Power Distribution Data and Graph
Lux / Foot-candle examples:
Reading/Studying/Sewing/Show Window/Make-Up/Hair Dressing: 100 foot-candles / 1076 Lux
Museums/Art Galleries 20 foot-candles / 214 Lux
With SoLux you won't "cook it or bleach it out," you'll just make it look great.
SoLux is ideal for safely illuminating just about
anything with color...
SoLux's spectral power distribution is smooth, continuous, and full and therefore it
provides the user with light that very closely matches daylight across the visible
spectrum. This makes it ideal for showing the true color of anything and for highlighting
things in a room that has fluorescent background lighting.
SoLux at 3500K has been engineered so that UV light is greatly reduced.
The UVB output from SoLux is an ultra-low 0.26 microwatts/lumen .
The UVA output from SoLux is only 8.29 microwatts/lumen .
This makes SoLux ideal for illuminating optically sensitive fabrics and pigments.
Compared to a standard tungsten-halogen lamp, the spot provided by SoLux has an
76% reduction in the IR portion of the spectrum.
The intensity pattern of the spot provided by SoLux is very uniform and even and does
not exhibit the 'splotchy' or spiky intensity patterns found in many incandescent
reflectors lamps and MR16s. Uneven illumination is visually distracting and cheapens
whatever is being viewed.
Choice of Color Temperatures
The amount of foot-candles illuminating an object and the surrounding environment have
an impact on how your eye perceives color. Recent work by Dr. Berman at Berkley Labs
and earlier work by Kruithof helps explain the human eye's perception of daylight.
