LED IES File Scaling: IES files are used to calculate point-by-point photometrics. Standard IES files include information about the lumens used when creating the IES file. The lumens value in the light fixture schedule can be used together with the IES lumens value to scale the IES file out put.

IES files for LED fixtures typically do not include lumens information. The lack of this information makes it impossible to scale the output based upon the lumens in the light fixture schedule.

There is a new Scale Factor value you can set in the light fixture schedule for these situations. The light output will be multiplied by the scale factor you provide.

Previously you had to set the Lamp Depreciation to a value greater than 1 to workaround this limitation in the IES files.

Average Foot-candle Uniformity Ratios: The photometric schedule can include three new uniformity ratios, average foot-candles to maximum foot-candles, maximum foot-candles to average foot-candles, and minimum foot-candles to average foot-candles.
