Photometric Diagrams

Overview

The optical system efficiently focuses the light where it is needed. For the PLB, we offer two standard lighting distributions to optimize performance for applications from multi-use trails to docks.

All of our lighting distributions are full cutoff, meaning that they are complaint with dark sky requirements. Measurements are in footcandles.

Type 3

Lighting Profiles

Overview

The profile that you choose will control the timing and performance of your light through the night. The default for the PLB is profile 04.
