Product Details

MW700 Portable LUX Meter

by Milwaukee Instruments

   A Lux is a unit that indicates the density of light that falls on a surface. Average indoor lighting ranges from 100 to 1,000 Lux, and average outdoor sun lights about 50,000 Lux. Light is necessary for the development of plants, as a sufficient contribution of light is needed in order for the photosynthesis process to proceed. By supplementing light by means of lamps, the photosynthesis process can continue even at night, unhindered.
   Because the human eye is sensitive only to blue, green and red light, in calculating the Lux falling on an object, only the light that the human eye sees will be counted. If infrared light falls on an object, the Lux will be counted as zero, sinze our eyes see nothing. Mathematically, a spectral weighting function becomes convolved with the actual illumination spectrum to calculate Lux exactly. This is the formal definition of Lux, an unusual unit of measurement.
   Still, Lux can be thought of as a way of measuring light in terms of what our eyes perceive. One Lux is equal to one Lumen per square meter. One Lux equals 0.0929 footcandles.
