British Standard BS5489-1: 2003 permits a trade-off between colour rendering and illuminance for lighting in subsidiary streets – if lamps of high colour rendering index such as metal halide are used instead of highor low-pressure sodium lamps, a lower average illuminance can be used. A series of tests were carried out under mesopic conditions to validate the trade-off and this article reports on the new visual performance results. Four tests were carried out: acuity of achromatic and chromatic… CONTINUE READING
