What are MacAdam Ellipses and what are they for?
MacAdam Ellipses are a tool in lighting technology that measure possible chromatic variations in light emission before the human eye is able to perceive them. They are used to correct and monitor chromatic deviations with the aim of achieving uniform and consistent colour rendering. They are used to choose LEDs and avoid chromatic variations in the same light source.
How is light measured? Units of measurement and luxmeter
In order to measure light, according to the International System of Measurement, we have to base ourselves on three specific aspects and on the distance of the set of luminous rays from the same origin. Discover the lux, the lumen and the candela.
Differences between luminous flux and luminous intensity
Luminous flux helps us to understand the amount of light in a space in general, while luminous intensity is the parameter we use to calculate the exact levels of light hitting a space....
What are luminous efficacy and luminous efficiency (lm/W)?
You have probably wondered why two luminaires of the same wattage produce different amounts of light. As a general rule, when we choose a light source.
Luminance and illuminance What is the difference?
Luminance and illuminance can be confusing. What does luminance measure and what does illuminance measure? Faro Barcelona tells you all about it.
What is UGR and why take it into account?
The UGR measures glare to the human eye. Glare is a factor to avoid at all costs in a lighting or interior design project. The UGR measures glare to the human eye - find out all about it in this article!
Chromatic Performance Index or CRI: why is this indicator important?
In this article you will learn everything you need to know about the color rendering index for your interior design project.
Lighting control systems
Lighting control systems allow us to manipulate various parameters of one or more light sources. They can be managed in a wide variety of ways, from simple intensity adjustments to the creation of complex and dynamic lighting scenes tailored to the user's needs.
Lux and lumen: What are they and what are the differences?
These concepts are essential to ensure adequate light intensity and quantity without the need to test different intensities.
Lighting project How to approach it?
If you want your interior design to be a success, here are the tips you should take into account when planning your lighting project.
Colour temperature of light: what it is and how it is measured
LED color temperature has become a must in interior design and architecture for a variety of reasons. We tell you about it in this article.
The Importance of Light in Architecture: Uses and Planning
The need to create increasingly original and creative spaces has highlighted the importance of light in architecture.
What are IP degrees of protection?
The Protection Rating, also known as IP, is an international standard for electrical equipment that classifies degrees of protection.
