1 Introduction
This chapter describes the main features of Calculux Indoor and explains what you can
expect from the package.

Calculux Indoor is a software tool which can help lighting designers select and evaluate
lighting systems for office and industrial applications. Speed, ease of use and versatility are
features of the package from Philips Lighting, the world's leading supplier of lighting
systems. Running under the Microsoft Windows operating system, Calculux Indoor
includes even more options than its popular predecessor, Calculux for DOS.

Calculux Indoor is part of the Philips Calculux line, covering indoor, area and road
applications.

1.1 Philips - your partner in lighting
Philips Lighting, established over a century ago, has vast experience in helping customers
to select the optimum solutions for their lighting applications, in terms of quality,
performance and economy.
Our customer partnership philosophy means that we can support you from the planning,
design and commissioning of projects, right through to realisation and aftersales support.
This philosophy maximises cost-efficiency by ensuring the ability to choose the most
suitable equipment for your application.

Philips Lighting Design and Application Centres situated throughout the world offer
extensive consultancy, training and demonstration services. Our lighting specialists can
recommend existing solutions or develop new tailor made solutions for your application.
Because Philips Lighting is the leading supplier, you're assured of getting the best support
available.

Calculux is part of that support. For consultants, wholesalers and installers wishing to
develop lighting designs, it's the ideal tool; saving time and effort, providing the most
advanced lighting solutions available and guaranteeing satisfied customers.

1.2 What Calculux does
Calculux is a very flexible system which offers lighting designers a wide range of options:
You can use the package to simulate real lighting situations and analyse different lighting
installations until you find the solutions which suits your technical as well as your
financial and aesthetic requirements best.
Calculux uses luminaires from an extensive Philips database and photometric data which is
stored in the Philips Phillum external formats. Additionally other luminaire data formats
can be imported (CIBSE/TM14, IES, EULUMDAT and LTLI).
Simple menus, logical dialogue boxes and a step by step approach help you to find the
most efficient and cost-effective solutions for your lighting applications.
Chapter 1 Introduction

1.3 What you can do with Calculux Indoor
Perform lighting calculations (including direct, indirect, total and average illuminance)
within orthogonal rooms;
Predict financial implications including energy, investment, lamp and maintenance costs
for different luminaire arrangements;
Select luminaires from an extensive Philips database or from specially formatted files for
luminaires from other suppliers;
Specify room dimensions, luminaire types, maintenance factors, interreflection accuracy,
calculation grids and calculation types;
Compile reports displaying results in text and graphical formats;
Support Switching modes and Light regulation factors;
Support multiple languages.

The logical steps used for project specification save you time and effort, while the report
facility gives you the opportunity to keep permanent records of the results.

1.4 Tailor make your indoor design
Calculux Indoor is designed for use with six-sided orthogonal rooms. The dimensions of
the room and the reflectance of each surface are entered by the user. Calculation grids can
be defined anywhere in the room. You can also enter the maintenance factor and the
required interreflection accuracy. These values will be used in all subsequent calculations.

1.5 Choose from a wide range of luminaires
Calculux is supplied with an extensive Philips database which includes the most advanced
luminaires. For each luminaire you can view luminaire data, including the type of
distributor, lamp type, output flux efficiency factors and power consumption. The light
distribution can be shown in a Polar, Cartesian or Isocandela diagram, together with the
luminaire quality figures.

Apart from the Philips database, the following other well known luminaire data formats
from other suppliers can be used in Calculux:
CIBSE/TM14;
EULUMDAT;
IES;
LTLI.
Chapter 1 Introduction

Calculux Indoor

1.6 Easy luminaire positioning individually or as a group
After you've made your luminaire selection, you can position and orientate luminaires
individually or in groups, anywhere in a room. Luminaire data, including the type of
distributor, lamp type, output flux and power consumption can be viewed at any time.

In many lighting designs luminaires are often grouped in arrangements such as blocks,
lines or circles. Calculux Indoor contains an option to define a number of arrangements.

The position of the luminaires in such an arrangement is controlled by the arrangement
rule but the orientation of each luminaire within an arrangement can be altered. It's even
possible to free the luminaires positions so that they're no longer connected via the
arrangement rule. This feature proves very useful e.g. when in a preliminary design a
number of luminaires are placed on a line, but in the final stage one of the luminaires in
the line doesn't entirely fulfil the line arrangement rule.

1.7 Symmetry lighting installation
Many designs contain a symmetric lighting installation. This simplifies luminaire
arrangement entries where one or more of the luminaires have the same orientation.
Calculux offers the possibility to include symmetry in the installation or a part of the
installation.

1.8 Graphical manipulation of generated luminaires and/or
aiming positions
Having defined luminaires as individuals or in arrangements, Calculux enables graphical
manipulation (with a mouse) of the position and orientation of the luminaires.
Graphical manipulation operates with the same arrangement rules.

1.9 Calculation Grids
After setting the luminaire arrangement, you're able to choose a preset grid or define your
own for which the lighting calculations will be carried out. For example you wish to know
if a particular combination of luminaires provides a sufficient level of light for a secretary's
desk.
By defining the desktop as a grid, the illuminance can be calculated and the results viewed
on screen or printed. There's even a possibility to specify the number of points on the
desktop at which the illuminance is calculated. On the other hand, if you don't want to
define your own grid, frequently used grids corresponding to the room's six surfaces and
the working plane are predefined to save you time.
In many situations the indirect illuminance can be calculated by considering the room
surfaces as diffuse sources which reflect the same amount of light at every point. When
more accuracy is required, Calculux Indoor allows you to divide the room surfaces into
cells which may reflect varying amounts of light. Up to 800 cells can be defined to give an
extremely high level of accuracy.

Calculux Indoor also provides a quick estimate of the number of luminaires of a particular
type needed to provide a certain level of illuminance using the Utilisation Factor method.

1.10 Switching Modes
Calculux Indoor enables you to develop a lighting design in different switching modes.
You can first generate a design for a conference room for video presentation and then by
adding luminaires go on to generate a design for a conference situation.

1.11 Light Regulation Factor (LRF)
This Calculux option enables you to dim luminaires or luminaire arrangements

1.12 Save money by optimising cost-effectiveness
Cost is a major consideration when specifying a lighting installation. Calculux provides a
breakdown of the costs you can expect to incur with a particular installation, both in terms
of initial investment and annual running costs. Thus it's possible to support you in the
decision making process by comparing the cost-effectiveness of different lighting
arrangements.

1.13 See your lighting design develop on screen
A special view menu is provided to enable you to monitor the development of your project
on screen. A 3-D as well as a number of 2-D project overviews can be displayed on screen.
All overviews allow graphical manipulation of the luminaires (position and orientation).

The view facility can also be used to study the calculated results in text and graphic format.
Tables listing the calculated values are displayed. The view facility can also provide
isotropic contours, mountain plots and graphic tables of the results.

1.14 Impress your customers with attractive reports
When you've finished a project you're able to generate attractive reports giving the results
of the calculations. All you have to do is use the menu to select the elements which you
wish to include in your report and they will be added automatically.
For example, you can incorporate:
A table of contents;
2-D and 3-D project overviews;
Summary;
Luminaire information (including Polar or Cartesian diagram);
Detailed information about the calculation results (in textual table, graphical presentation
and/or Iso contour);
Financial data.

It's also possible to add supplementary text. A convenient feature if you wish to comment
on or draw conclusions from the results presented in the report.

3 Background Information
This chapter describes in detail the background principles used in Calculux.


3.1 Project Info and Vignette file
3.1.1 Project Info
When you start a new project in Calculux, it can be beneficial to enter summary
information. This can include remarks and statistics about the project, e.g. name, date and
designer, as well as customer details.

3.1.2 Vignette file
Calculux enables you to include details about yourself and your company in your reports.
The information will be printed on the cover page of the reports and can be used for
reference at any time.
This provides the customer with contact details, should they need to consult you over the
contents of the report.

If you create what is called a Vignette file you can save the information to a disk.
This eliminates the need to enter the same company information every time you open a
new project. You can simply select the Vignette file to be included in your next project.
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor

3.2 Room Characteristics
3.2.1 Surfaces: dimensions and reflectance
Calculux Indoor assumes that the room in which the luminaires are to be positioned is
rectangular. Rooms are defined by using an XYZ-coordinate system in which the width is
parallel to the x-axis, the length is parallel to the y-axis and the height is parallel to the z-
axis.
For positioning of the room the X and Y coordinates of the front bottom left corner of the
room can be entered (P) you can press the 'Centre' button to place the centre of the room
in the origin of the coordinate system O (0, 0, 0). This last option can be usefull, for
example, when you want to apply symmetry.

A
B
O (o,o,o)
Z
Y
X
P
C


A = width
B = length
C = height

3.2.2 Interreflection accuracy
Each of the room's six surfaces is considered to have a uniform reflectance. The
interreflection accuracy you set obviously depends on how important interreflection is to
your lighting design. If you choose a higher level of accuracy each room surface is divided
into a number of subsurfaces (cells; max. 800) at which the lighting calculations will be
performed. This requires longer calculation times.
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor

3.2.3 Quick Estimate
If you wish you can enter a value for the Required Illuminance Level of the room in the
Quick Estimate field of the Room dialogue box, e.g. enter "500lux." Later when you select a
luminaire for your lighting design using the Add Room Block Arrangement dialogue box,
an estimation of the number of this luminaires needed is provided. This estimation is done
according to the CIE UF method.
( More detailed information about 'Quick estimate' can be found in chapter 'Lighttechnical
Calculations', section 'Quick Estimation'.

3.2.4 UF Method
When you add a luminaire from a database or PHILLUM file, the number of luminaires
needed to provide the required illuminance level as entered in the Room dialogue box is
automatically entered and displayed.
The calculation is performed using the so called Utilisation Factor (UF) method described
in CIE reports 40 and 52. If you click on the Generate button and you have entered a value
for the 'number of luminaires needed' which is lower then the requested one, the program
once more positions them according to the UF method. If no solution can be found,
Calculux Indoor informs you, i.e. you'll receive a warning that the number of luminaires
doesn't fit in the room.

In some cases the database contains information about the maximum advisable spacing to
height ratios of luminaires, in order to provide uniformity. If the number of luminaires
calculated using the UF method doesn't comply with this ratio, then Calculux Indoor adds
extra luminaires until it does.

For example, suppose that by accident you've chosen a powerful industrial luminaire for
use in an office. The UF method tells you that the number of luminaires needed to provide
the required average illuminance level is 1. When you choose generate the view panel will
display 4 luminaires necessary to comply with the spacing to height ratio. This would be
very inefficient, so another luminaire should be chosen.

3.2.5 Zones
By using the Zones option and entering a value for the Border Zones you're able to define
a working plane smaller than the room floor. Entering a value for a zone (left, right, front
or back) will specify the distance between one of the walls and the working plane.
The previous generated working plane calculations are now automatically spread over the
reduced working plane.

A B W
D
C


A = border zone left
B = border zone right
C = border zone front
D = border zone back
W = working plane

3.2.6 Room Grids
To perform lighting calculations Calculux uses grids. A grid is a set of points in a 2
dimensional plane, at which the lighting calculations will be carried out. A grid must
always be rectangular in shape and can be in any plane in space (horizontal, vertical or
sloping).
The size, position and the number of grid points can be specified by the user. Some special
plane grids on walls and working planes
(= Room Grids) will automatically be generated according to a standard. A standard
defines the minimum number of grid points that is used for the lighting calculations.
It also defines how these grid points are divided over the application area.
The following standards are available:
Calculux;
NEN;
DIN;
CIBSE.
( More detailed information about (Room) grids and the grid standards can be found in
chapter 'Grids'.
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor

3.3 Application Fields
3.3.1 General
In Calculux an application field is represented by a 2-Dimensional rectangular shape.
Application fields can be used to graphically mark the area of interest for lighting
calculations. Calculux includes a number of different applications.

To differentiate between the types, they contain zero or more predefined lines and/or
markings that are associated with the different applications. The outlines of the built-in
sports fields have already been drawn, requiring only the name, dimensions and centre
position to be entered. You can choose from:
Tennis Court;
Basketball Ground;
Volleyball Ground;
Indoor hockey Field;
Ice hockey Field;
Five-a-side football Pitch;
Handball Court;
Korfball Court;
Badminton Court;
Squash Court;
Table Tennis Table;
General Field.

In Calculux, for each type of application field the default dimensions and grid settings can
be entered. This allows local standards to be set, limiting the input requirements of the
designer. Upon selection, Calculux automatically draws the application field using the
default values. Calculux also generates a grid and a surface illuminance calculation on this
grid. You are then free to change the dimensions, if necessary, to suit your personal design
requirements.

The general application field is an empty rectangular field. It can be used when you wish to
perform calculations for an application not included in the above list. A general field
operates like any other application field. You can connect a grid to a general field, ensuring
that any changes made to the field parameters automatically change the grid parameters.

3.4 Luminaire Photometric Data
Calculux can retrieve luminaire photometric data from two different sources:
A luminaire database;
A specially formatted ASCII data file.

3.4.1 Luminaire Database
The luminaire database is supplied with Calculux and contains a wide range of luminaires
from your supplier.

The luminaire database, of which you want to select your project luminaires, can be
selected in the Select Database dialogue box.
When a database is selected, luminaire types for a particular application area can be
selected in the Application Area dialogue box. For each luminaire, details about housing,
light distributors, colour, lamps and luminous flux intensity are presented on screen in a
logical, step-by-step way so that choosing a suitable luminaire for an application is easy.

The default luminaire database and directory in which the luminaire database is stored is set
in the Database tab of the Environment Options dialogue box (Options menu). If you wish to
extend the range of luminaires you can save more than one database in this directory.

3.4.2 ASCII data file
Calculux is supplied with an extensive Philips luminaire database.
New Philips luminaires that are not yet available in the database are sometimes supplied in
specially formatted ASCII data file, the PHILips LUMinaires data format (PHILLUM).

Apart from the Philips database and the PHILLUM format, Calculux allows you to use
photometric data from other suppliers.
The following other well known formats can be used in Calculux:
CIBSE/TM14;
EULUMDAT;
IES;
LTLI.

Luminaire files are stored in the default directory. You can set the location of the default
directory in the Directories tab of the Environment Options dialogue box (Options menu).
( The interpretation of the above luminaire formats can differ. You should pay attention
when using them.

3.5 Luminaire Positioning and Orientation
3.5.1 Luminaire Positioning

XYZ-coordinates
To position a luminaire, Calculux requires
the use of the (three dimensional) coordinate
system XYZ. The X
L
Y
L
Z
L
coordinates position
the centre of the luminaire in relation to the
origin of the coordinate system.

C- coordinate system
Each luminaire is given its own luminous intensity coordinate system,
in order to provide information on its luminous flux distribution.
In general, the C- coordinate system is used. To create the required luminous flux
distribution in your design you'll need to define a new orientation for the luminaire.
This is done by rotating and/or tilting the luminaire in relation to its (local) coordinate
system.

For indoor fluorescent luminaires the longitudinal axis of the lamp is called the
C=90/C=270 axis. The lateral axis of the lamp (perpendicular to the longitudinal axis) is
called the C=0/C=180 axis. For luminaires with an unusual shape, such as those used in
outdoor applications, the mounting bracket is usually regarded as a reference which
corresponds to the C=270 axis. The vertical axis of the lamp is normally called the
=0/=180 axis.

The following illustrations display the C- coordinate system for the three main luminaire
types, being street, indoor and floodlighting.

3.5.2 Luminaire Orientation

Aiming types
To determine the orientation of a luminaire you can use either:
Aiming by defining a fixed point (XYZ);
Aiming by defining fixed angles (RBA).

Calculux enables you to aim the luminaires with RBA aiming type and view the generated
aiming point by switching from RBA aiming to XYZ aiming (and vice versa).

XYZ aiming
If XYZ aiming is used, the luminaire orientation is determined by defining its aiming
point. This is the point (P) towards which the main axis (=0) is directed, see figure below.

The position of the aiming point P (X
p
, Y
p
, Z
p
) is related to the global coordinate system.

RBA aiming
The luminaire is aimed (orientated) by defining fixed angles for Rot (around the vertical
axis), Tilt90 (around the C=0/C=180 axis) and Tilt0 (around the C=90/C=270 axis).

Rotation (Rot)
If you wish to change the angle of rotation of the luminaire about its vertical axis, you
need to enter a value in degrees for the variable 'Rot'. This value can be positive or
negative.

For example Rot = 45:

Luminaire orientation order
When specifying values for RBA aiming Calculux uses the following specification order:
Rot;
Tilt90;
Tilt0.

Extra attention must be paid, because the order in which the variables will be processed is
of great influence on the resulting orientation.

Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.13 -
For example if the following sequence of processing is executed for a luminaire:
90 rotation about the vertical axis (Rot=90);
90 rotation about the C=0/C=180 axis (Tilt90=90);
90 rotation about the C=90/C=270 axis (Tilt0=90).

The result of the above order of processing gives the following orientation:

Conversion of Aiming types

Conversion from RBA aiming to XYZ aiming
The XYZ coordinates of the aiming points are locked on the aiming plane. Conversion
from RBA-aiming to XYZ-aiming is only possible when the Tilt0 of the luminaire is 0.
This restriction is included to prevent the loss of orientation information. The XYZ
coordinates are blanked out in case the luminaire has to be displayed in XYZ-aiming, and
there is no intersection with the aiming plane.

In the case of a modification in the aiming type when there's no intersection with the
aiming plane, the point on the aiming vector, one meter from the luminaire, is chosen as
the aiming point.

Conversion from XYZ aiming to RBA aiming
The direction from the location of the luminaire to the aiming-point is determined.
This direction is expressed in a Rotation, Tilt90 and Tilt0 (Tilt0 is always 0).

Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.14 -
Selecting Aiming Presentation types
Calculux allows you to select either RBA aiming presentation to display the Rot, Tilt90
and Tilt0 aiming angles, or XYZ aiming presentation to display the aiming points. If the
selected aiming presentation is different from the used aiming type, Calculux will convert
the unit for aiming into the unit as selected for the aiming presentation. In this way it is
possible to view the value of the aiming angles while the used aiming type is XYZ aiming
or aiming points while the used aiming type is RBA aiming.
The aiming presentation of luminaires can be set in the luminaires list.

Conversion from RBA aiming presentation to XYZ aiming presentation for a luminaire is
only possible when Tilt0=0. This restriction is included to prevent the loss of orientation
information. When a luminaire, aimed with RBA aiming, has to be displayed in XYZ
aiming and there's no intersection with the aiming plane, the XYZ coordinate values are
blanked out.
( Conversion of the aiming presentation type does not change the aiming type!

Aiming offset (Floodlights)
For some asymmetric flood lighting
luminaires an aiming offset is given and
stored in the database.
It can be viewed in the project luminaire
details dimensions tab. The aiming offset is
usually equal to the angle of the maximum
intensity in the C=90 plane.


For a luminaire with an aiming offset the
photometric data is treated with respect to
the aiming of the luminaire as if the
maximum intensity is at C=0 and =0.
Aiming the above luminaire with an aiming
offset of
degrees at Rot=0 and Tilt90=0 gives the
orientation displayed next.


To ensure that the front glass of the
luminaire is horizontal, the aiming should be
Rot=0 and Tilt90=.

3.5.3 Number of luminaires per position (Luminaire Quantity)
Normally there will be one luminaire at each luminaire position. In some special cases it
can be very useful to use a different number of luminaires, for instance;

When a group of 5 luminaires (floodlights) with the same aiming point is situated on a
pole, these luminaires can technically be regarded as one luminaire. In this case you can
enter a luminaire quantity of 5.

When in a block arrangement at one particular luminaire position no luminaire can be
installed.

3.6 Individual Luminaires
3.6.1 General
Calculux allows you to position luminaires individually as well as in groups.
The definition of individual luminaires is done in the 'Individual Luminaires' dialogue
box. This dialogue box contains two tab pages.
In the Luminaires tab you can select the project luminaires which have been defined in the
Project Luminaires dialogue box and set or change luminaire parameters. In the View tab
you can view the luminaires graphically.

3.6.2 Luminaire Definition
In the Luminaires tab you can define and position individual luminaires.
For the definition of a new luminaire the following parameters, if applicable, have to be
set:
Project Luminaire Type;
Aiming Presentation;
Switching Modes.

When the above parameters have been set the luminaire(s) can be added to the luminaire list
by clicking on the 'New' button.

Project Luminaire Type
If a project contains two or more luminaire types you will need to select the required
luminaire type. For details about a project luminaire you can click on the 'Details' button.

Aiming Presentation
With this parameter you can set the aiming presentation of all luminaires in the luminaire
list. Choose from either RBA or XYZ, aiming angles or aiming points.

Switching Modes
If switching modes are used, you can select which switching mode(s) will be appied to all
new created luminaires in the luminaire list.

Luminaire List
The luminaire list contains information about the individually placed luminaires used in
the project. You can view, set, edit, copy or delete information of project luminaires. In the
luminaire list the following luminaire information, if applicable, can be set:

Luminaire Type
If a project contains more luminaires, and afterwards a different luminaire type is required,
you can click on the down arrow in the project luminaire type box and make your
selection.

Luminaire Quantity
With this parameter you can set the number of identical luminaires at a luminaire position
(see also chapter 'Luminaire Position and Orientation'; section 'Luminaire Quantity').

Luminaire Position (POS X, POS Y and POS Z)
Use these parameters to enter the XYZ coordinates of the centre of the luminaire in
relation to the origin of the coordinate system.

Luminaire Orientation (Aiming Type)
Depending on the defined Aiming Type and selected Aiming Presentation you can set
and/or view the RBA angles (Rot / Tilt90 / Tilt0) or the XYZ coordinates Aim. Pnt. X /
Aim. Pnt. Y / Aim. Pnt. Z.
( By pressing on the 'To XYZ' or 'To RBA' button you can convert the aiming type of
selected luminaires from RBA aiming to XYZ aiming or vice versa.
Symmetry (Sym.)
If you want to apply symmetry, you can set the symmetry type for the luminaires.
The Sym. column shows which type of Symmetry is used ('NONE', 'X', 'Y' or 'XY'). If X- or
XY symmetry is used, for the X-origin the X coordinate of the YZ plane has to be entered.
If Y- or XY symmetry is used, for the Y-origin column the Y coordinate of the XZ plane
has to be entered.

For more information about symmetry, see chapter 'Symmetry'.

Switching Modes (1, 2, ...)
If switching modes are applied, you can view or set which of the available switching modes
are activated for each luminaire.
Each column number is identical to the switching mode sequence number in the
'Switching Mode' list box. The switching modes columns will only be displayed if more
then one switching mode(s) exist.

Light Regulation Factors (%)
If light regulation factors are applied, you can set and/or view the value of the light
regulation factor (0 - 100%) for each luminaire.

3.7 Luminaire Arrangements
3.7.1 General
Calculux allows you to position luminaires individually as well as in groups. A number of
luminaires defined as a group is called an luminaire arrangement.
To simplify the definition of an arrangement, Calculux contains the 'Arranged Luminaires'
option.
The luminaires in an arrangement are positioned and aimed according to the arrangement
rule and are stored under the 'arrangement name'.

The arrangement generation rules relate to all arrangements (where applicable) and are
explained here for the following arrangements:
Room Block;
Block;
Polar;
Line;
Free.
( When you define an arrangement, the arrangement must fit in the room.
A Free arrangement is a special kind of arrangement allowing the luminaires to be
positioned individually. The only thing they share is a common arrangement name.
In the case of a Block, Line, Polar or Room Block arrangement, the luminaire positions are
controlled by the arrangement rule. The other attributes can be set individually.
In general, for each arrangement the following luminaire attributes
(if applicable) must be set:
Project luminaire Type;
Position of the arrangement;
Orientation of the arrangement (Aiming);
Symmetry type and relevant symmetry origin;
Number of Same (luminaires per position);
Switching mode(s).

To simplify the definition of the attributes, the arrangements dialogue box is split into the
following four tab pages.

Arrangement Definition
In the Arrangement Definition tab you can define the name and position of the
arrangement in relation to the XYZ coordinate system. Where applicable you can set the
orientation
(= aiming) of the arrangement.
( For a 'Room Block arrangement' only the orientation of the luminaires can be set.
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.20 -
Luminaire Definition
In the Luminaire Definition tab you can define the default settings for all luminaires in
the arrangement. The settings are used for the generation of the luminaires at the position
as set in the Arrangement Definition tab and determine the initial generation of the
luminaire list.
The default settings can be changed at any time by making changes to the luminaire
definitions. By using the Apply buttons you ensure the setting changes are carried out for
all luminaires in the luminaire list.

Warning:
Take care when you have created an arrangement with a unique aiming pattern. When you
click on the Aiming Apply button the settings will be applied to all the luminaires in the
luminaire list and the unique aiming pattern will be lost. If you don't want this and it does
happen, click on the Cancel button and the action will be undone. Note that the Cancel
facility is effective in any of the tabs of the arrangement dialogue box.

Luminaire List
In the Luminaire List tab you can view the attributes of each luminaire in the arrangement.
All attributes, except the luminaire positions can be changed. For a Free arrangement, it's
possible to change the position of the luminaires as well.

View
The View tab displays the luminaires in the arrangement graphically.

3.7.2 Room Block Arrangement
A Room Block arrangement is a special type of Block arrangement where the luminaires
are arranged in a rectangular room.

Arrangement Definition
There are two ways to define a Room Block arrangement:

a) You can create a Room Block arrangement using the UF Method (see also chapter
'Room'; section 'UF Method').

The following parameters have to be set:
Luminaire Type;
Orientation of the luminaires;
Name of the arrangement.

If you press the Generate button a regular luminaire pattern will automatically be
generated at the ceiling of the room. The number of generated luminaires depends on the
value you've entered in the 'Required Illuminance Level' field of the 'Room' dialogue box.
The number of luminaires will only be calculated if the information for
the UF Method is included in the Data base.
( If required you can change the value of the 'Number of Luminaires needed'. If the value
fulfils the max. spacing to lighting ratio given in the database, Calulux will perform light
calculations using the value in the 'Number of Luminares needed' field.
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.21 -

b) You can create a Room Block arrangement by defining the number of luminaires and
the spacing between the luminaires.

In this case the following parameters have to be set:
Luminaire Type;
Orientation of the luminaires;
Name of the arrangement;
Number of luminaires in X and Y direction;
Spacing between the luminaires in X and Y direction;
Position of the arrangement.

When the Room Block arrangement has been defined, depending on the position of the
arrangement a number of ways of updating are possible:

Using Updates
Regular button Position X, Y, Z
Centre button Position X, Y, Z

Example:
For a Room Block arrangement with default luminaire orientation, the following definition is
given:
Dimensions of the 'room' = 16.0, 10.0, 6.0
Position of the 'Front Bottom
Left' corner of the room = 1.0, 2.0
Number in X = 3
Number in Y = 2
X Spacing = 6.0
Y Spacing = 5.0
Position (of arrangement) = 3.0, 4.0, 6.0 (=P)

(see also chapter 'Luminaire Position and Orientation'; section 'Luminaire Quantity').

Switching Modes
If switching modes are used, you can select which switching mode you want to apply to the
luminaires in the arrangement.

3.7.3 Block Arrangement
In a Block arrangement the luminaires are arranged in a rectangular shape.

Arrangement Definition
For the definition of a Block arrangement, the following parameters have to be set:
Name of the arrangement;
Position of the arrangement;
Orientation of the arrangement;
Number of luminaires in AB and AC direction;
Spacing between the luminaires in AB and AC direction.
( To simplify the definition of a Block arrangement you should first define a Block
arrangement without orientation (rotation or tilt) and afterwards
(if applicable) apply rotation and/or tilt.
Example:
For the definition of a Block arrangement without rotation or tilt, set:
Position A The block position.
P Reference point P is the position of the bottom left luminaire in the
arrangement (if no rotation and tilt is applied).
N
AB
The number of luminaires in AB direction (if the block is not rotated,
AB is parallel to the XZ-plane).
N
AC
The number of luminaires in AC direction (if the block is not rotated,
AC is parallel to the YZ-plane).
Spacing
AB
The distance between the luminaires in the AB direction (D1).

3.7.4 Polar Arrangement
In a Polar arrangement the luminaires are arranged in one or more concentric arcs.

Arrangement Definition
For the definition of a Polar arrangement, the following parameters have to be set:
Name of the arrangement;
Centre position of the arrangement;
Orientation of the arrangement (orientation of the plane);
Number of luminaires per arc;
Spacing between the luminaires on an arc;
Length of an arc;
Number of concentric arcs;
Distance between two adjacent arcs;
Radius of the arc that is nearest to the centre.

When the Polar arrangement has been entered, a number of ways of updating are possible:

Changing Updates
Luminaires per Arc Spacing along Arc
Spacing along Arc Length of an Arc (Total Arc)
Length of the Arc Spacing along Arc
( To simplify the definition of a Polar arrangement you can best first define an arrangement
without orientation (rotation or tilt) and afterwards (if applicable) apply rotation and/or
tilt.
Example:
For a Polar arrangement without rotation or tilt, the following definition is given:
Centre Position (P) = (10.0, 6.0, 2.0)
Luminaires per Arc = 5
Spacing along Arc = 45
Total Arc = 180
# of Concentric Arcs = 2
Distance between Arcs (d) = 5.0 m
Radius of First Arc (r) = 4.0 m

3.7.7 Ungrouping a luminaire arrangement
After you have positioned a luminaire arrangement, you may wish to adjust the position of
the individual luminaires slightly. When you Ungroup a luminair arrangement, the
luminaires are no longer part of an arrangement but individual luminaires.
It is then possible to, change, delete or replace each luminaire individually.
( A similar result (roughly) is obtained when a luminaire arrangement is converted into a
Free arrangement.

3.7.8 Convert into a Free Arrangement
Calculux allows you to convert an existing arrangement or a group of individual
luminaires into a Free arrangement. In a Free Arrangement the luminaires are considered
as part of an arrangement but there is no arrangement rule for defining the number of
luminaires and their positions. Only the name of the arrangement has to be specified.

3.8 Symmetry
3.8.1 General
Symmetry is an optional specification, that can be used to simplify individual luminaire or
luminaire arrangement entries when one or more luminaires have a symmetrical
orientation and/or position. If applied, the luminaires are duplicated on the opposite side
of a line parallel to the
X-axis or Y-axis or they are duplicated to all quadrants.

The use of symmetry in luminaire positioning and orientation is explained with the
following example:
Assume that you've created an indoor sports hall of width 80m and length 140m.
The default position of the Front Bottom Left corner (reference point or P
.
) of the sports
hall will be located at the origin of the XYZ co-ordinate system.

80 O
Y
X
P
140


The easiest way to position two identical luminaires at opposite corners of the sports hall is
to position one luminaire and apply symmetry to the lighting installation to position the
second luminaire. If you would do this without first translating the origin of the XYZ
coordinate system to the centre of the sports hall, the new luminaire would be positioned
outside the room. In this case an error message would appear on your screen.
In order to apply symmetry to the lighting installation in a room you'll need to position
the origin of the plane(s) of symmetry inside the room.

Example:
You want to position two identical floodlights, orientated towards the centre, at the
opposite corners of a sports hall (width 80m and length 140m). The axis you want to use
to apply symmetry are equal to the X = 0 and Y=0 axis. In this case, the centre of the sports
hall has to be in the origin (O).
( After defining the dimensions of the sports hall you can position the origin (O) at the
centre of the sports hall by clicking on the 'Centre' button (Room Definition tab).
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.37 -
At (-35, 65, 10) you have positioned a floodlight, orientated towards the centre of the
sports hall.

If the axis you want to use to apply symmetry is not equal to a central axis of the room,
you'll have to change the settings of the X-origin or
Y-origin (placing the plane of symmetry in the middle between the existing and the 'new'
luminaire). You can do this in several ways:
For all new created luminaires in a project this is done by replacing the settings of the X-
origin and/or Y-origin in the Symmetry tab
(Project Options).
For luminaires in a luminaire arrangement this is done by replacing the settings of the X-
origin and/or Y-origin in the Luminaire Definition tab (Arranged Luminaires), then
clicking on the Apply button.
For individual luminaires or individual luminaires in an arrangement this is done by
replacing the settings of the X-origin and/or Y-origin in the Luminaires tab (Individual
Luminaires) or Luminaire List tab (Arranged Luminaires).
( When symmetry is applied and the position and/or orientation of a luminaire is changed,
the position and/or orientation of all symmetrical luminaires will also change according to
the applied symmetry type.

Remember that symmetry is not only applied to the position of the luminaire, but also to
its orientation: e.g. X-symmetry of a luminaire at coordinates (-35, 65, 10) resulted in a new
luminaire on (35, 65, 10) which was rotated automatically so that it's still orientated
towards the centre (0, 0, 0).

Applying symmetry about the Y-axis to a lighting design does not automatically imply a
symmetric light distribution. This is only the case if the luminaire is symmetric about its
C=90...C=270 plane.

3.9 Grids
3.9.1 General
A grid is an area containing a specific number of points at which lighting calculations are
carried out. A grid must always be rectangular in shape and can be in any plane in space
(horizontal, vertical or sloping).

It is useful to think of a grid as an invisible surface to which a light meter can be attached.
The amount of light measured by the light meter changes as it is moved to different points
on the surface. It also changes if the light meter is moved from one side of the surface to
another.

There are two types of calculation grids:
Generated grids;
User defined (Free added) grids.

3.9.2 Generated grids
Calculux Indoor allows you to choose seven preset grids which lay on the six surfaces of
the room and the working plane.

Details about the grid (like position, number of points) are derived from the selected
standard: CIBSE, DIN, NEN or Calculux. The 'Calculux' standard is a grid type which has
been developed by Philips Lighting after years of practical experience in indoor lighting
applications.

Preset grids are a convenient feature when you do not want to define a grid yourself, or
when you need to conform to the standards above.
You can also use the preset grids as an aid to defining your own grid.
For example, if you wish to define a grid parallel to the left wall (x=0) but shifted 1 m
towards the centre of the room, then all you have to do is to disconnect the grid by
selecting Grid Points Method 'No Rule'. Now you can change the x coordinates of three of
the grid's corner points from 0.0 to 1.0.

Calculux standard grids

Working plane
The working plane is defined as the area at working plane height which remains when a
border zone is subtracted from the room. Grid points are spaced over the working plane.
The distance from the first grid point to the border zone is 0.5 times the spacing between
the rest of the grid points. The number of calculation points along either side of the grid is
calculated with the following equation:
a
1)) +
0.5
side
( Int Min(12, = points grid of Number
b
c

side = the length or width of the grid
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.41 -
This equation is subjected to the following constraints:
Up to 6 meters the maximum spacing between grid points is 0.5 m;
The maximum number of grid points is 12 and the minimum number is 5.

Room Surfaces
For each of the room surfaces, the number of calculated grid points and the spacing
between the grid points is according to the above rules.

Example:
In a room measuring 5.4 x 3.6 x 3.0 m (l x w x h) with a border of 0.5 m the number of
grid points on the working plane for a CLX type grid have to be calculated.
Using the above formula this will give the following result:

The number of grid points in width direction
a width of grid = width of room - (2 x border)
3.6 - 1 = 2.6
b 1) +
0.5
2.6
( Int = 1) +
0.5
grid of width
( Int
Int (6.2) = 6

c Number of grid points (width)
Min (12,6) = 6

The number of grid points in length direction
a length of grid = length of room - (2 x border)
5.4 1 = 4.4

b Int (+1) = Int (+1)
Int (9.8) = 9

c Number of grid points (length)
Min (12,9) = 9

As both calculated values are greater than 5 and less than 12, they are acceptable

NEN standard grids

Working plane
The working plane is defined as the area at working plane height which remains when a
border zone is subtracted from the room. The default value for the border zone should be
set to 0.6 m. However, it's possible to set a different border for each side of the working
plane.

Grid points are divided over the remaining area. The distance from the first grid point to
the border is 0.5 times the spacing between the rest of the grid points. The spacing in the
length and width directions should not be greater than the smallest of the following values:

1/3 x (Luminaire height - working plane height). If luminaires are positioned at different
heights in the room, or have yet to be positioned, the room height is taken as the height of
the luminaire position.

1/3 x (Length of side under consideration) i.e. 1/3 x (Width - (left border + right border))
or 1/3 x (Length - (front border + back border)).
3 m.

Room Surfaces
The number of calculation points along either side of a grid corresponding to one of the
room's surfaces can be calculated with the aid of the following equation:

Number of grid points = 1)) +
0.5
side
Int( (12, Min

This equation is subject to the following constraints:
The maximum spacing between grid points is 0.5 m;
The maximum number of grid points is 12 and the minimum number is 5.

DIN standard grids

Working plane
The grid points are divided over the working plane. The distance from the first grid point
to the border is 0.5 times the spacing between the rest of the grid points. In the DIN
standard it's recommended to set the border zone to 0.

The number of grid points is related to the length of the side of the grid under
consideration as follows:
Length of side is 0 till 2 m use 7 grid points;
Length of side is 2 till 5 m use 8 grid points;
Length of side is 5 till 8 m use 9 grid points;
Length of side is 8 till 10 m use 10 grid points;
Else use 12 grid points.

Room Surfaces
The number of grid points and their spacing for each of the room surfaces is the same as
above.

CIBSE standard grids

Working plane
The working plane is defined as the area at working plane height which remains when a
border zone is subtracted from the room.
Grid points are divided over the working plane. The distance between the grid points
should be approximately a meter. Calculux meets these requirements by setting a grid to
fill the working plane with the first grid point at a half grid spacing from the edge of the
border.
The number of calculation points along either side of the grid is calculated with the aid of
the following equation:

Number of grid points = 1)) +
1
side
Int( (12, Min

Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.43 -
This equation yields a grid spacing of approximately 1 m. The grid is subject to the
constraint of a minimum of 5 grid points in any direction. The maximum number of grid
points is 12.
( In CIBSE standard it is recommendable to set a border zone of 0.5 m.
Room Surfaces
The number of grid points and the spacing between them follows the same rules as above
for each of the room surfaces.

3.9.3 User defined (Free added) grids
Calculux enables you to define your own grids, or to change the specifications of existing
grids.

If a grid lies on one of the room surfaces, the lighting calculations should be made for the
inner side of the surface. If a grid lies within the room (a virtual grid), the user must
specify the side of the grid (1 or 2) on which the calculations are performed.

A grid is defined by specifying the X, Y and Z coordinates of the three reference corners A,
B and C. The 4th reference corner is calculated automatically because the grid is a
rectangle. Usually point A is considered the bottom left corner of the grid, so when this is
the case, the reference corners are as follows:

A = The bottom left corner of the grid
B = The bottom right corner of the grid
C = The top left corner of the grid

The following rules apply to grids:
a) The vectors (AB) and (AC) cannot be zero and must be perpendicular.
A small deviation from perpendicularity is allowed, Calculux will correct this
automatically. This is especially useful when a person, using a system with limited
accuracy, has to specify the corners of a grid with sides that are not parallel to the axis
of the coordinate system.
b) The reference corners A, B and C can not be on one line.

Calculation points in a grid
The number of calculation points you define in AB and AC direction is used to divide the
grid into equal parts. These are the points at which the lighting calculations will be carried
out. There is always a calculation point on each corner. For example, if you set both
numbers of points in AB and AC direction to 4, the total number of grid points is
4 x 4 = 16, see figure below. The lighting calculations are performed at each of these points.

Distance between calculation grid points:

Default side
It is usually obvious on which side of the grid (it has two sides) the calculations are to be
carried. However, for some calculations, such as surface illuminance and luminance it is
not always obvious and therefore becomes necessary to define the default side of the grid.

The default side of the grid is related to the orientation of A, B and C and is determined
using the right hand rule. The direction of the arrow (the normal vector on the grid area)
indicates the side of the grid which is the default. This is always the case unless it is
specified otherwise.

Grid coupling
Calculux enables you to connect a grid to an application field, (a calculation grid usually
lies within an application field) ensuring that any changes made to the field parameters
automatically change the grid parameters. You can set a calculation grid default for each
application field type in the application field defaults dialogue box. The following example
demonstrates these principles:
( Make sure the grid is located inside the room.
General field
Width = 15 m
Length = 28 m
Centre position = 0 [x=0.0, y=0.0]

Calculation grid:
spacing AB = 2 meters
spacing AC = 2 meters
include Mid Point
at Centre Width = yes
include Mid Point
at Centre Length = yes

This will give the following grid reference corner coordinates, see next figure:

X Y Z
A - 8.0 - 14.0 0.0
B + 8.0 - 14.0 0.0
C - 8.0 + 14.0 0.0

Now moving the centre position of the general field to 5, 0, 0 the grid parameters will
automatically change to:

X Y Z

If in the first example the general field width changes to 20m, the new coordinates will be:

X Y Z
A -10.0 -14.0 0.0
B +10.0 -14.0 0.0
C -10.0 +14.0 0.0

The grid corners can fall outside the general field due to the spacing leading rule, with the
centre point of the dimension of the application field being included. See section 'Spacing
leading' for a more detailed explanation.

To contain the grid inside the general field it is connected to, exclude 'Mid Point at

This aspect of Calculux is very user-friendly: you'll begin to appreciate the benefits of grid
coupling when you start building your own projects.

For connecting a grid to an application field the following grid point methods are
possible:

No Rule
When a grid is connected to a application field with 'No Rule', there will be no relation
between the definition of the grid and the definition of the field. The grid is defined by the
corner points (A, B and C), the number of points in the AB and AC direction, and the
direction of the normal vector.
The grid will remain at the same position when the application field is moved and will also
be deleted if the application field is deleted.

Points Leading
Along each dimension (i.e. length and width of the application field) the number of
calculation grid points is defined. These points will be evenly spread over the surface of the
application field starting at the edge or at half spacing from the edge, depending on your
selection. Once your selections have been made, Calculux calculates the positions of A, B
and C displaying the grid in the view box.
In the following figure the number of calculation grid points along AB is 7, starting at half
spacing from the edge. This gives a spacing of 10m. (between calculation points).

A B
70m
5m
70.0 0.0


In the following figure the number of calculation grid points along AB is 7, starting at the
edge (point A). This gives a spacing of 11.67m. (between calculation points).

A B
70m
11.67m
0.0 70.0


Spacing Leading
Along each dimension (i.e. length and width of the application field) the spacing of the
calculation grid points is defined, together with the choice whether or not to include the
centre of each dimension in the application field. Once your selections have been made,
Calculux calculates the positions of A, B and C displaying the grid in the view box.

In the following figure the spacing between the calculation grid points along AB is 10m.
The centre point of the dimension of the application field is not included, giving:
The first point at X = +2.5m;
The last point at X = +72.5m.

A B

In the following figure the spacing between the calculation grid points along AB is 10m.
The centre point of the dimension of the application field is included, giving:
The first point at X = -2.5m;
The last point at X = +77.5m.

A B
75m
2.5m 2.5m 10m
0.0 75.0


The distance between the application area and the border grid point is, at a maximum, half
that of the spacing. In case spacing leading is used, the calculation grid can be larger than
the application field to which it is connected. To include the grid within the field, switch
between 'Mid Point at Centre' included 'Yes' or 'No'.

Normal vector of a grid
The normal vector is perpendicular to the plane of the grid and is defined by using the
right-handed coordinate system.

Presentation of results
When the results of lighting calculations are presented in a textual table, they have a
particular format. The calculated results for point A always appear at the bottom left
corner of the table, the results for point B at the bottom right corner and the results for C
at the top left corner, for example:

A: x = 0.25 y = 0.25 z = 0.00
B: x = 3.75 y = 0.25 z = 0.00
C: x = 0.25 y = 5.75 z = 0.00

If the number of points AB = 8 and AC = 12 and no output rotation is performed, this
will give the following format:

The '+' represents the calculated result, (you can define points A, B and C to create any
layout for the results you require).

A different presentation of the calculated results can be displayed by defining the
coordinates of points A, B and C as follows:

A: x = 0.25 y = 0.25 z = 0.00;

3.10 Shapes
A shape is a surface area in the same plane as a grid. Shapes can be used to create a user-
defined form on the rectangular grid which is excluded from the calculations. Virtually any
kind of form can be created. Shapes are connected to a grid, therefore shapes can only be
added after a grid is defined. If multiple shapes are defined for a grid, each shape has an
unique name.

In Calculux, shapes can be set active or inactive.

Active and inactive shapes
Each shape can be set active or inactive individually. Only grid points not covered, or
covered by inactive shapes will be used for calculation by Calculux.
The shapes on a grid cover a grid point if at least one active shape covers the grid point.

In Calculux shapes can be defined in two ways:
Pre-defined shapes
User-defined shapes

3.10.1 Pre-defined shapes
In Calculux, some application fields use a connected grid other than the standard
rectangle. For these application fields a set of pre-defined shapes is used to create different
application field outlines. If the size of the grid is changed, the position and size of the
shapes is updated automatically. The user cannot change or delete these pre-defined shapes,
but can duplicate or add a shape. A duplicated shape will be a user-defined shape. Each pre-
defined shape can be set active or inactive.

3.10.2 User-defined shapes
On all calculation grids the user can add shapes by specifying the required input
parameters. The user can add, change, duplicate or delete shapes. A user-defined shape can
be set active or inactive.

In Calculux, the following shape types can be defined by the user:
Set of points
Rectangle
Closed polygon
Arc

Set of points
The set of points shape can be used to cover individual grid points. This is especially useful
when a few grid points at the edge of an application field or next to a generated shape
must be excluded for calculation by Calculux. It only has effect when real grid positions
are excluded. A point can be entered between grid points but will have no effect.

Coordinates can be entered using the dialogue box. However, coordinates which are exactly
on a grid point can also be entered simply by mouse-clicking on the grid point in the view
box.

Notes:
Points within 5mm from a grid point are taken as that grid point.
When the number of grid points is changed, it is possible that the selected points are no
longer on a calculation point.

Rectangle
The rectangle shape can be used to create rectangular shapes. It is defined by its lower left
corner position (relative to point A of the grid), width and length.

If the 'Change Proportionally' function is enabled, the position and size of the shape is
changed proportionally with the size of the grid.

Polygon
The polygon shape can be used to create irregular shapes consisting of straight lines. At
least three coordinates must be entered. The polygon is automatically closed by the
program
(first and last point are the same). All coordinates are relative to point A of the calculation
grid. Lines within a polygon must not cross each other.
Coordinates can be entered using the dialogue box. However, coordinates which are exactly
on a grid point can also be entered simply by mouse-clicking on the grid point in the view
box. Polygonal shapes can be set as inbound or outbound.

Arc
The Arc shape can be used to create circular shapes. The arc shape is defined by its starting
position (relative to point A of the grid), radius and angle. The arc shape can be rotated
around its starting position. Arc shape coordinates between grid points can only be entered
using the dialogue box. The arc shape can be set as inbound or outbound.

3.10.3 Symmetry
Symmetry is an optional specification that can be used to simplify individual shape entry
when one or more shapes have a symmetrical orientation and/or position. If applied, the
shape is duplicated on the opposite side of a line parallel to the AB axis or the AC axis,
or it is duplicated to all quadrants. The user can specify the symmetry type (AB, AC, AB-
AC or none) and the AB and AC origin (relative to point A of the grid).

3.11 Lighting control
(Switching Modes / Light Regulation Factor)
In many designs the lighting system must be flexible so that the lighting level can be
adapted to suit the activities for which the facility is to be used. The Calculux 'Lighting
control' feature enables you to dim luminaires or luminaire arrangements.

When using a 'Lighting Control' system you can:

Save energy
When light sensors are used you can automatically dim luminaires in areas where the
amount of daylight increases. By means of movement detectors you can automatically
switch of luminaires when an area is not 'occupied'.
In this way an energy saving of up to 70% can be achieved.

Increase the flexibility of the lighting installation
When infrared remote control is available, the need for vertical wiring to wall switches is
eliminated;
Reduction of the installation costs;
Less costly adaptations to the electrical system, when the furniture layout is changed.

Create more comfort for the user
When pre-programmed lighting levels are available, the user can switch or regulate the
lighting installation to the required lighting level.

In Calculux you can create a 'Lighting Control' system using:
a) Switching Modes
b) Light Regulation Factors

3.11.1 Switching Modes
A switching mode is a subset of luminaires which are in operation.
For example, you can first generate a design for a conference room for video presentation
and then by adding luminaires go on to generate a design for a conference situation. In this
way the lighting level can be adapted to suit the activities for which the facility is to be
used.

3.11.2 Light Regulation Factor (LRF)
This option enables you to dim luminaires or luminaire arrangements.
By using this option you can save energy, increase the flexibility of the lighting installation
or create more comfort for the user.

The value of the light regulation factor is expressed in % of the lumen output of a
luminaire.
( There is no linear relation between the value of the light regulation factor and the power
consumption of a luminaire. As a result of this, when light regulation factors are used,
the power consumption of the luminaire can not be calculated. So in the cost calculation
the energy costs will not be given.

3.12 Drawings
A drawing is a 2-dimensional shape which you can add to your lighting design. A drawing
may be a rectangle, arc, line or text.
It is unlikely that you will need to add a drawing within an application field, as all the
required areas are automatically included. You are more likely to place a drawing outside
an application field to to illustrate your design (e.g. to represent a nearby construction).

Be aware that if you move the centre coordinates of an application field, the drawing
you've added will not move.

Drawings appear on screen and in your printed reports if selected, but do not affect your
calculations or scaling.

The name and dimensions must be entered before a drawing can be included in a project.
The exception is the text option. For this drawing, entering the name, the XYZ coordinates
of where the centre of the text should be and the actual text is all that is required.

You may wish to use a rectangular drawing e.g. for indication of luminaire positions,
desks, conference tables, obstructions etc.
( A drawing does not affect the scaling of project overviews, calculation result views and the
results of calculations.

3.13 Light-technical Calculations
Calculux Indoor currently supports the following calculation type:
Plane illuminance
Unified Glare Rating

3.13.1 Plane Illuminance

the area of that surface.
The surface can have any orientation.
The orientation is defined by the normal
vector on the surface.

Variables: Meaning:
E

Plane illuminance at point P
I
p
Luminous intensity from the light source in the direction of point P
d Distance from the source to point P (m)
Angle between the normal n and the light incidence

This formula assumes that the luminaire is a point source. For fluorescent luminaires,
of which the distance between the luminaire and the point P is short in comparison with
dimensions of the luminaire, the above formula is not valid. Calculux has a built-in feature
(luminaire split-up) which overcomes this problem. When the luminaire split-up feature is
activated, the luminaire is considered to be made up of a number of smaller luminaires with
the same light distribution but proportionally smaller lumen output.
The following types of surface orientation information relating to each point on the grid
are recognised by Calculux.

3.13.2 Glare
Glare is the condition of vision in which there is a reduction in the ability to see details or
objects due to an unsuitable distribution or range of luminance, or to extreme contrasts.
Glare can occur in one of two possible forms:
Disability glare glare that impairs the vision;
Discomfort glare glare that induces a feeling of discomfort.

For indoor Lighting the measure for discomfort glare is called the UGR factor.

UGR is explained in the following section.
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.63 -

UGR
The Unified Glare Rating, UGR, is a measure for the amount of discomfort glare in an
indoor lighting installation. A lower glare rating results in a better glare restriction. The
practical meaning of the range of the glare assessment scale is from 10 (unnoticeable) to 30
(unbearable).

For the calculation of the UGR the CIE formula is used:

UGR = 8 log{0.25/Lb L
2
/p
2
}

Variables: Meaning:
UGR unified glare rating.
Lb background luminance, determined by the lighting, the room size and
the reflectances. It is calculated from the vertical illuminance caused by
interreflections on the observer's eye.
L luminance of the luminaire in the direction of the observer's eye.
solid angle of the luminous parts of the luminaire as seen by the
observer.
p position index of the luminaire (a value given by CIE typical for the
displacement of the luminaire from the line of sight).

To get insight in the overall effect of glare from a lighting installation, an UGR calculation
for reference conditions as specified in the CIE tabular method is most suitable.
The resulting single value (called in Calculux UGRCIE), is the value against which
specifications can easily be checked.

For detailed glare rating evaluations, Calculux has also the possibility to calculate UGR
values for non-reference conditions. In this case the observers are situated in a given grid at
each grid point. For four mutual perpendicular viewing directions with parallel and
crosswise view, individual UGR values can be calculated. The line of sight is always
horizontal and
the eye height is given by the grid parameters.

CIE tabular method reference conditions for UGR
CIE specifies reference conditions (according to the tabular method) for the calculation of
UGR. The resulting single UGR value is called in Calculux UGRCIE tabular method. It is
the most typical value for the overall effect of glare from the total lighting installation.

The reference conditions are:

Luminaire geometry: luminaire spacing in both directions 0.25 H, with H being the vertical
distance between the observer eye and the luminaire.
Observer position: against the middle of the respective walls at 1.2 m above the floor
with horizontal viewing directions perpendicular to the wall.
( CIE's tabular method is not defined for complex situations. As a consequence also UGRCIE
is not defined for such complex situations. Calculux will therefore only calculate UGRCIE
for the following situations:
Chapter 3 Background Information

Calculux Indoor
- 3.64 -
Rectangular rooms
All luminaires of the same type and at the same height
All luminaires positioned parallel to the walls
Luminaires not asymmetrical or tilted.

In all other situations Calculux will print 'UGRCIE not defined'.

UGR in a calculation point
For each luminaire in the room, it's contribution to the Sum in the main formula is
calculated.
The calculation uses the formula:

UGR contribution = L
2
/p
2

The Luminance (L) and the solid angle are calculated by Calculux.
P is taken from the Guth Position Index Table:

Background luminance
The background luminance, Lb, is defined as that uniform luminance of the whole
surroundings which produces the same illuminance on a vertical plane at the observer's eye
as the visual field under consideration excluding the glare sources. It may be obtained from
the formula:

Lb = Ei/

where Ei is the indirect illuminance at the eye of the observer (lux).

The indirect illuminance is the illuminance on the eye caused by the luminance of the
walls (direct illuminance from the light sources is not taken in to account).

Output
The output format of the calculation of point values will be presented in a textual grid,
analogous to Calculux's vertical illuminance output.
The values will be presented as rounded whole figures. The average, min/ave and min/max
values are not calculated and will not be printed in this output.

At the top of the output page the UGRCIE value will be presented, if defined.
Also in the summary the UGRCIE values will be output per switching mode, that is, if they
are defined and applicable.

3.13.3 Indirect contribution
The amount of light reaching a point depends on the direct contribution from the
luminaires and on the indirect contribution reflected from the room's surfaces.

Calculux Indoor calculates the indirect contribution by dividing the room's surfaces (cells)
into a number of subsurfaces which are assumed to be area light sources with uniform
radiance. The number of subsurfaces is defined with the 'interreflection accuracy level'
which is set Room dialogue box. Since the total illuminance at a point includes the direct
contribution plus the contribution of the subsurfaces, the more subsurfaces you have the
more accurate your results will be.

The direct contribution on each surface is calculated by placing a grid on each subsurface
and deriving the incident illuminance from each luminaire according to the equation for
the plane illuminance (see section 'Plane Illuminance'). The individual values are added up
and averaged to give the total average illuminance on each surface.
From the average direct contribution, the complete interreflection matrix is solved to
calculate the average total radiance on each surface. Then from each surface the
contribution to a point is calculated.

When the room's surfaces are not divided into smaller subsurfaces, the so-called 6-plane
interreflection model is used. This model corresponds to a normal interreflection accuracy
level setting in the Room dialogue box.
( The Indirect Contribution can only be calculated when the surfaces in the grid points,
used in the calculation, are orientated towards the positive or negative X-,Y- or Z-direction.
3.13.4 Calculating the numbers of luminaires needed
When you add a luminaire from a database or PHILLUM file, Calculux can give you a
quick estimation of the number of luminaires needed to provide the required illuminance
level. The calculation is done according the so called Utilisation Factor (UF) method.

Quick Estimation
If you enter the required illuminance level (in the Room dialogue box), Calculux will be
able to determine a quick estimation of the number of luminaires needed. This calculation
is done for each luminaire individually and is performed according to the UF (Utilisation
Factor) method described in CIE reports 40 and 52.

UF MF F NL
W L E
= N




Where the variables are:
N = number of luminaires needed
E = required illuminance
L = room length
W = room width
NL = number of lamps in each luminaire
= lamp flux
MF = maintenance factor
UF = utilisation factor

Utilisation Factor (UF)
The Utilisation Factor is calculated according to the lumen method.
This method uses the CIE flux code of the luminaire, the room's dimensions and the
reflection properties of its surfaces to perform the calculation. The room's dimensions are
characterised by the room index K, defined as:

W) + (L )
0
H -
1
(H
W L
= K



Where the variables are:
L = room length
W = room width
H
1
= room height
H
0
= height of the working plane

The Utilisation Factor can be found when the room index and the reflectance of the room
are known. They are tabulated as part of the luminaire photometric data. Strictly speaking,
the UF method is only valid if the luminaire arrangement and the room dimensions are
exactly the same as those in the CIE reports. However, experience shows that the values are
valid for most practical situations.

The UF method of calculating the number of luminaires is used as a rough indication.
A point calculation can always be performed. For this reason Calculux Indoor only uses
the CIE method of calculating the utilisation factor as the differences between it and other
methods (DIN, CIBSE, etc.) are quite small. The table below shows an example of room
index values for a typical luminaire.

Uniformity Check
In some instances, the database contains information about the maximum advisable
spacing to height ratios of luminaires which provide good uniformity. These values are
taken into account in the Quick estimation and can sometimes lead to a greater number of
luminaires than required to provide the average illuminance level.

The uniformity check is restricted to checking the minimum numbers in length and width.
This check is performed only if the luminaire maximum spacing to height ratio is given in
the database.

The uniformity check is based on the values as given in the data base. These values are
calculated for a grid of 4 times 4 luminaires.
The uniformity is calculated in the square of the middle four luminaires (as set out in
CIBSE TM5).
( In practical situations the above conditions are not always met.

3.13.5 Quality Figures
Calculux allows you to show the quality figures of the calculations. Depending on the
settings of the Quality Figure tab (see Calculation menu, Presentation...) the following
quality figures can be displayed:

Average value calculation

3.14 Report Setup
A very useful feature of Calculux is the report facility. When you have completed a lighting
project you can create attractive reports to present the results of the calculations to your
customers. By means of the Report Setup you can simply specify the layout of the report
and components you wish to include.
For example, you can include, a table of contents, 2-D and 3-D project overviews, a
summary, luminaire information (including Polar or Cartesian diagram) and/or financial
data.
For detailed information about your calculation results you can include the following
presentation formats:
Textual Table;
Graphical Table;
Iso Contour;
Filled Iso Contour;
Mountain Plot.

You can also include a summary of your findings and recommendations about the best
lighting solutions. If you wish, you can produce reports in several languages.
( The order of the calculation results can be altered (see Calculation Presentations dialogue
box). However, the order of the presentation formats is governed by Calculux and cannot
be altered.
Calculux enables you also to print a report in portrait or landscape format with the 2D
result views rotated 90. This option (Report menu, Print Setup, Layout tab) can be very
useful. For instance, when a report which has to be printed in portrait format contains a
landscape formatted 2D result view which looks relatively small. By selecting 'Rotate
presentation for Portrait Printing', the 2D result views will be rotated 90. Because of the
rotation the view can be enlarged.

Cost calculations and light regulation factors
There is no linear relation between the value of the light regulation factor and the power
consumption of a luminaire. As a result of this, when light regulation factors are used, the
power consumption of the luminaire can not be calculated. So in the cost calculation the
energy costs will not be given.

3.16 Maintenance Factor/New Value Factor
The Maintenance Factor is the ratio of the average illuminance on the plane under
investigation after a specified period of use of the lighting installation, to the average
illuminance obtained under the same conditions for a new installation. It is always equal
or less than 1 and is used as a multiplier for calculations, based on luminaire light
distribution tables.

In some countries the New Value Factor (or Inverse Maintenance Factor) is used.
Calculux allows you to use new value factors instead of maintenance factors.
The 'Inverse Maintenance Factor' is always more than or equal to 1.

The following maintenance factors are specified:
General Project Maintenance Factor;
Luminaire Type Maintenance Factor;
Lamp Maintenance Factor.

3.16.1 General Project Maintenance Factor
This maintenance factor takes into account a general factor with which all calculation
results are multiplied. It acts as a safeguarding factor and must reflect the overall
conditions of the room surfaces. The value of the 'Project Maintenance Factor' is always
equal or less than 1.

3.16.2 Luminaire Type Maintenance Factor
This maintenance factor takes into account the reduction of light output caused by dirt
deposited on or in a luminaire. The rate at which the dirt is deposited depends on the
construction of the luminaire and the extent of what dirt is present in the environment.
The value of the 'Luminaire Type Maintenance Factor' is always equal or less than 1.

3.16.3 Lamp Maintenance Factor
The Lamp Maintenance Factor value is always equal or less than 1 and consists of two
elements:
a) Lamp Survival Factor;
b) Lamp Lumen Depreciation Factor.

a) Lamp Survival Factor
This maintenance factor takes into account the percentage of the lamp failures during a
specific number of operation hours. It is only applicable when a group replacement is to
be carried out. The 'Lamp Survival Factor' is based on the assumptions about the switching
cycle, supply voltage and control gear.

b) Lamp Lumen Depreciation Factor.
This maintenance factor takes into account the fact that the luminous output of all lamps
decreases with use.

The nominal values shown in this report are the result of precision calculations, based upon precisely positioned luminaires in a fixed
relationship to each other and to the area under examination. In practice the values may vary due to tolerances on luminaires, luminaire
positioning, reflection properties and electrical supply.
