Quick Answer: What Are Acceptable Lux Levels?

What is Lux in LED light?

Lux: The amount of light that is cast on a surface is called illuminance, which is measured in lux.

This can be thought of as light intensity within a specific area.

Lumens: The total output of visible light from a light source is measured in lumens.

One lux is equal to one lumen per square meter (lux = lumens/m2)..

How many Lux do you need for reading?

A broad guide is to have general, or ambient, lighting in a passageway or a room where you don’t perform concentrated visual tasks at 100–300 lux. Raise the level of light for reading to 500–800 lux, and concentrate task lighting on your needed surface at 800 to 1,700 lux.

How many Lux is dangerous?

To expand on this, direct sunlight is 32,000 to 130,000 lux, according to Wikipedia. Staring at the sun can cause eye and brain damage because it overloads your retina and causes it to release chemicals which can damage surrounding tissue (nerves). Indirect sunlight is 10,000 to 25,000 lux, which is safe.
