To understand lighting in its entirety, comprehend its evolution and provide innovative solutions to practical operational problems is Magnitech’s drive.
Becoming specialists in the science of light and how to encase it for maximum efficiency and longevity is why Magnitech’s products still burn today after being installed 25-30 years ago.
Introduction to photometrics
The correlated colour temperature (CCT) is a specification of the colour appearance of the light emitted by a lamp, relating its colour to the colour of light from a reference source when heated to a particular temperature, measured in degrees Kelvin (K).
The rendition of colour by a lamp is specified by the CIE colour rendering index (CRI or Ra) and is a measure of the light source to faithfully render the appearance of a gamut of colours spanning the colour space.
As the development of LED technology continues to grow and diversifies, the need for consistent and standardized testing procedures for LED has become more prevalent than ever. The test can only be performed by a NIST NVLAP Accredited testing laboratory for LM-79.
The Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) approved method for taking LM-80 data and making useful LED lifetime projections. It proves a recommendation for projecting long term lumen maintenance of LED light sources using LM-80-08 lumen maintenance data.

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE OF LUMINAIRE MATERIALS
Industrial luminaires are manufactured in a variety of materials, each specifically selected as being the most resistant to chemical corrosion & other related elements. The resistance tables give a general overview regarding the resistance to chemical attack on luminaire materials and generally applicable for ambient temperatures up to 60˚C.
A hazardous area can be defined as any location where there is risk of an explosion. But every hazardous area is different and each has specific requirements depending on the nature of the atmosphere and the elements that are present.
