Identify wasteful lighting and save energy.
As just one example, lighting in hallways is often much brighter than needed for movement and energy is wasted as a result. The Australian Standard for interior and workplace lighting (AS/NZS 1680) outlines recommended lighting levels for a range of tasks. We have summarised this information below for your reference.
This light meter accurately displays light levels in terms of Lux (lx). It also features 3 sensitivity settings which enables it to measure from 0 to 100,000 Lux. It also has a ‘hold’ feature. It is ideal for those carrying out energy or lighting audits of businesses or homes.
