Photometric Diagrams


Our optical system efficiently focuses light where it’s needed. For the SCL2, there are a number of standard lighting distributions to optimize performance for applications from parks to parking lots.

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