Lighting design calculations

CALCULUX has been developed at the Philips Lighting Design and Application Centre [LiDAC] and is a lighting design program for personal computers. It consists of three lighting design programs: Indoor, Area and Road, and a luminaire database management program.

The package is intended for use by lighting engineers to carry out simple artificial lighting design calculations.

The Indoor-program calculates the light distribution based on the reflection factors, the specific (Philips) luminaires and light sources that are applied, and the room dimensions.
