Another response was the Illuminating Engineering Society’s publication of TM-30, a proposed method for color evaluation designed to report more information with greater accuracy. TM-30 offers a color fidelity measure similar to but more accurate than CRI, and another expressing color saturation.
During a panel discussion, representatives from the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the American Medical Association (AMA) talked about blue-light concerns, issues with CCT as a metric for outdoor lighting guidance, and under whose purview such lighting guidance should fall.
The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) has mentioned about current lighting methods to accomplish higher efficiency and greater safety in the warehouses and storage areas.
Optics & Photonics News
In the optics community, the lighting industry has been moving toward replacing fluorescent lamps with LEDs since long before the Minamata Convention. According to Mark Lien at the Illuminating Engineering Society, USA, “that transition has had the consequential benefit of eliminating mercury.” However, Lien says, “that wasn’t the intent—the intent was energy efficiency.”
The Illuminating Engineering Society is cited as saying that a 65-year-old needs up to four times as much light as a 20-year-old – make of that what you will.
Many LED lifetime claims are built on poor adherence to industry standards, says ALEX BAKER, and the industry would do well to straighten up in order to raise confidence in the technology and improve market potential.
Commission member Peter Vargulich also asked the dispensary to upgrade the parking lot lighting to meet Illuminating Engineering Society standards.
AERUS delivers the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES)-recommended foot-candle on desk.
The global LED flashlight market accounted to US$ 1,965.2 Mn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2019 – 2027, to account to US$ 3,075.1 Mn by 2027.

American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers has published guides on designing K-12 and small to medium office buildings that achieve net-zero energy consumption without compromising quality. Building on previous guides targeting deep energy savings, the first two new guides were developed in partnership with the American Institute of Architects, Illuminating Engineering Society, and U.S. Green Building Council.
