Chapter 1, page 1-7


Immediately underneath Figure 1-7, find Equation 1-5. The summation limits for this equation are incorrect and should be revised as shown below: F = 683 PV
380 780

(1-5)

This change will put Equation 1-5 in agreement with the wavelength limits for visible light as they are presented in Figure 1-1 on page 1-2.

Chapter 1, page 1-8


In the right-hand column, under the subhed Fabricated Sources, the last sentence in the first paragraph should be modified (in the interests of clarity and correctness) to read: Incandescent rare-earth elements can emit discrete spectra, whereas some high-pressure discharges can produce a continuous spectrum.

Chapter 1, page 1-18


The caption for Figure 1-29 contains an incorrect symbol for the critical angle. The second sentence in this caption should read: The critical angle ic varies with the medium.

Chapter 1, page 1-21


The figure reference (to 1-33c) given in the sentence concluding on the top line of the left-hand column is incorrect. This sentence (which begins on page 1-20) should read: In a method developed by Fresnel, as shown in Figure 1-32c, the curved face of the stepped lens becomes curved rings and the back is flat.

In the right-hand column, six lines up from the bottom, the reference to Figure 2-18 is incorrect. The reference should be to Figure 2-19.

Chapter 2, page 2-31


In the section titled Floodlight-Type Luminaire that begins toward the bottom of the left-hand column, the words beam spread(s) should be replaced with field angle(s) in seven different places:

First Paragraph - in the second line and in the seventh line. Second Paragraph - in the fifth/sixth line, the seventh line, the eighth line, and the ninth line. Last Paragraph - in the fourth line. Chapter 2, page 2-36
At the bottom of the page, section (c) of the caption for Figure 2-24 should be modified (in the interests of clarity and correctness) to read: (c) regular area with single row of individual luminaries; (Note: the word individual replaces the word continuous)

Chapter 3, page 3-31


Equation 3-13 at the top of the right-hand column should be changed to read: 0.25 UGR + 8 log 10 Lb

i i i=1 Pi

L 2

(3-13)

Also, two of the defined terms immediately following equation 3-13 should be revised:

The definition for Eb should be removed and replaced with:


Lb = luminance of the field of view, in cd/m2, not including luminaire luminance. This gives agreement with the notation used in Equation 3-13.

The last definition should be modified. Here, lower-case pishould replaced with upper-case
Pi for agreement with the notation used in Equation 3-13. Immediately below the list of defined terms, where the main text resumes, the first sentence should be replaced with the following: This formula generally results in UGR values ranging from 10 to 30 where a high value indicates significant discomfort glare and a low value indicates little discomfort glare. Electric lighting systems producing UGR values of less than 10 are assumed to produce no discomfort. These changes will allow consistent presentation for the Unified Glare Rating (UGR) equation, which appears again on page 9-28.

Chapter 4, page 4-5

In Figure 4-3 under Standard Illuminant, read down the column marked (nm) until you get to 740. Then read across the row to column C where the number given is 91.50. This number is incorrect and should be 61.50. 5

Chapter 6, page 6-29


Figure 6-35 is incomplete because it does not include all the relevant labeling for its vertical axis and its horizontal axis. A revised Figure 6-35 is shown below:

Chapter 6, page 6-55


At the top of the page, Figure 6-69 is in error, specifically the curves that are presented in parts (b) and (c) and the second sentence of the caption, which should be deleted. The entire figure and its caption should be replaced with the revised Figure 6-69 shown below:

Figure 6-69. Lumen output vs. power input for high-intensity discharge lamps: (a) mercury vapor, (b) quartz metal halide, and (c) high-pressure sodium.

Chapter 7, page 7-8


In the middle of the left-hand column, four cutoff classifications are defined. A slight rewording of the first three definitions is required to correct them and put them in agreement with the cutoff classification definitions presented in RP-8-00. Here are the corrected definitions with the major change in each one shown in bold italics: Name Description of intensity distribution Full cutoff A luminaire light distribution where zero candela intensity occurs at or above an angle of 90 above nadir. Additionally, the candela per 1000 lamp lumens does not numerically exceed 100 (10%) at or above a vertical angle of 80 above nadir. This applies to all lateral angles around the luminaire. 6

Cutoff

A luminaire light distribution where the candela per 1000 lamp lumens does not numerically exceed 25 (2.5%) at or above an angle of 90 above nadir, and 100 (10%) at or above a vertical angle of 80 above nadir. This applies to all lateral angles around the luminaire. A luminaire light distribution where the candela per 1000 lamp lumens does not numerically exceed 50 (5%) at or above an angle of 90 above nadir, and 200 (20%) at or above a vertical angle of 80 above nadir. This applies to all lateral angles around the luminaire.

Semicutoff

Chapter 8, page 8-3


Equation 8-1 in the left-hand column is incorrect an should be replaced by: ET = 0.1644sin

0.1273sin 365.25 365.25

Chapter 8, page 8-3


At the bottom of the left-hand column (immediately following Equation 8-1 and its defined terms), the first full sentence is incorrect. It should read: This equation is suitable for most terrestrial daylighting applications.

Chapter 8, page 8-5


Equation 8-10 (top of the left-hand column) should be slightly revised so that the upper limit on the visible spectrum is 780 nm (not 770 nm). The corrected equation is: ESC = Km

780

380

G V d

(8-10)

This change should also be reflected in the list of terms defined immediately underneath Equation 8-10. Therefore, the definition of becomes: = wavelength in nm (for photopic vision at 380 to 780 nm).

Chapter 8, page 8-5


The definitions of two solar parameters given one-third of the way down in the left-hand column should be slightly revised to read as follows:

Solar illumination constant: 127.5 klx (11,850 fc) Solar irradiation constant: 1353 W/m2 (125.7 W/ft.2) Chapter 8, page 8-6
Look in the middle of the right-hand column. In the fourth line of text following Equation (8-18), the word clearsky appears. Replace this with the hyphenated clear-sky for better readability.

Chapter 8, page 8-14


The last sentence in the first paragraph of the left-hand column is missing the word not and should read: The lumen method does not account for direct sunlight entering into the room cavity.

Chapter 8, page 8-25


The caption for Figure 8-29 at the top of the right-hand column incorrectly contains the word for. This caption should read: Figure 8-29. Transmittances of Glass and Plastic Materials

Chapter 9, page 9-5


There are several errors in one section of Figure 9-2 (evaluation of numerous configuration factors), which starts on page 9-4 and concludes on page 9-6. The problems are in the second configuration factor on page 95. Here, in the equation for C, the denominator in the second arctan function should be: Y(H + 1) rather than Y(H 1). Also, above this equation, there are formulas for L, X, and Y. The formulas for X and Y are in error. The correct formulas are: X = (1 + H)2 + L2 Y = (1 H)2 + L2

Chapter 9, page 9-8 and page 9-9


Equation 9-16 (bottom, right-hand column of page 9-8) and Equation 9-17 (bottom, left-hand column of page 99) should include the term as follows: A
1

1 E2= A2 1

A1

dA1, dA2
D2 a1i a2j I( ij , ij ) cos ij D

I(, ) cos

(9-16)

E2= A2 A1

(9-17)

Chapter 9, page 9-11


At the top of the page in Figure 9-6, the first equation in the section for Parallel rectangles A1 and A2 contains an error. The beginning of this equation should be written as : z2 .... F1 2 = A 1 (Note: the term A1 should not be squared)

Chapter 9, page 9-15

In the middle of the right-hand column, Equation 9-24 is wrong because a subscript error. The equation should read: Mc = M0c + c(Mwfcw + Mf fcw) (9-24)

(Note: the corrected term c stands for ceiling reflectance. It also appears immediately below Equations 9-24, 9-25, and 9-26 where it is typeset properly)

Chapter 9, page 9-27


Equation 9-41 in the left-hand column is incomplete. All the terms on the right-hand side of the equation should appear over a denominator, which is simply the number 5 (see corrected equation below): L w w + L f f + Lcc + Lss Fv = 5 (9-41)

Chapter 9, page 9-28


Near the top of the left-hand column, the equation shown for Unified Glare Rating (UGR) should be slightly revised to read: n 0.25 Li2i UGR = 8 log10 2 Lb i=1 Pi

Also, three of the defined terms immediately following this equation should be revised to include subscripts:

L becomes L i becomes i P becomes Pi


Immediately below the list of defined terms, where the main text resumes, the second sentence should be replaced with the following: Values of UGR generally range from 10 to 30 where a high value indicates significant discomfort glare and a low value indicates little discomfort glare. Electric lighting systems producing UGR values of less than 10 are assumed to produce no discomfort These changes will allow for a consistent presentation of the UGR equation, which also appears in the Handbook on page 3-31.

Chapter 9, page 9-31


In the middle of the left-hand column, Equation 9-55b is incorrect. The numerator in the right-hand term should be changed so the equation reads as follows: y= cavity width cavity depth (9-55b)

(Note: the word width should be used in the numerator instead of the word length)

Chapter 9, page 9-34


In the left-hand column under Instructions and Notes: Tables of Coefficients of Utilization (Figure 9-28) there are several numbered paragraphs. The last sentence in paragraph 2 should be deleted. (Due to a decision by Handbook editors, the list of average intensity values referred to in this sentence was not published.)

Chapter 9, page 9-35 through page 9-44


In Figure 9-28, for each of 47 consecutive Typical Luminaire entries, there is a notation about Spacing Criterion (SC) above each individual CU table (on the right-hand side). In most cases, this notation reads: SC (along, across, 45) = X, Y, Z (with three small decimal numbers appearing after the equal sign in place of X, Y, Z ). This part of Figure 9-28 is incorrect. In all cases the SC notation should read: SC = X (with a single decimal number appearing after the equal sign in place of X ). If Spacing Factor is not applicable to a particular luminaire type, the letters N/A should appear after the equal sign in place of X. The following corrections for the Spacing Criterion (SC) notation should be made throughout Figure 9-28:
I

For Typical Luminaire 1, 19, 20, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 46, and 47 The SC notation should read: SC = N/A For Typical Luminaire 3, 4, and 5 The SC notation should read: SC = 0.6 For Typical Luminaire 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, and 15 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.1 For Typical Luminaire 16, 27, 34, 35, and 45 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.2 For Typical Luminaire 2, 11, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 36, 37, and 38 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.3 For Typical Luminaire 13 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.4 For Typical Luminaire 8 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.5 For Typical Luminaire 14 and 18 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.7 For Typical Luminaire 17 The SC notation should read: SC = 1.8

Chapter 9, page 9-35


In Figure 9-28, for Typical Luminaire 2, the typical intensity distribution curve (shown on a semicircular grid) is in error. Also, for this luminaire, the tabular data for EFF, %DN, %UP, and SC are wrong. The correct graphic and data for Typical Luminaire 2 (including the original CU table, which is unchanged) are as follows:

In Figure 9-28, for Typical Luminaire 3, the line drawing to the left of the CU table is incorrect. This sketch (done in cross section) should not show the option of an A lamp. The CU table is clearly for a PAR flood lamp. Furthermore, this sketch should show the flood lamp near the bottom of the luminaire. (See Figure 6-4 on page 6-6 for an illustration of typical bulb shapes with their ANSI designations.)

In Figure 9-28, there is an error in the tabulated data for Typical Luminaire 4. In the row where RCR is 2 (for this luminaire only), read across two columns to the right. The entry listed here, 0.08, is incorrect. It should be 0.98.

Chapter 9, page 9-36


In Figure 9-28, for Typical Luminaire 6, the percentage value given for EFF (above the CU table) is in error. This data should read: EFF = 69.2%

The Notes that appear immediately below the last section of Figure 9-28 should be keyed to the relevant luminaires in this figure. Several parenthetical text additions (shown below in bold type) are needed to accomplish this. Revise the concluding Notes for Figure 9-28 as follows:
Notes: EFF = efficiency; SC = Spacing Criteria. For 6 reflector with PAR-38, multiply by 0.98.

In the middle of the left-hand column, under 6. Solve the Equations there is an inconsistency in the second paragraph. In order to have agreement with the distances presented in Figure 9-50 on page 9-65, the second sentence of this paragraph should begin by saying: The distances involved are x 1 = 5.5 ft, x 2 = 9.5 ft,. (not 5 ft) (Note: this is a portion of Example 4, which begins on page 9-64)

In the middle of the left-hand column, there is a subscript error in the expression for E. This equation should read: E = Mccc p + Mwcw p (Note: an incorrect term cp w appears to the right of M w in this expression as originally published. This equation is part of Example 5, which begins on page 9-66) Two additional and identical subscript errors appear further down the left-hand column on page 9-67. The first occurs five lines below the expression for E where the configuration factors are defined. Here the text should read: cw p = configuration from the walls to the point. The second appears 13 lines below the expression for E where the equation given should read: cw p = 1.0 cc p

Chapter 10, IESNA Lighting Design Guide ( Note: all pages in this chapter are specially marked with a blue edge) In Section 1. INTERIOR, page Interior-2: Under Casino and Gaming, there are numerous errors in the letter assisgnments given for Illuminance (Horizontal) and Illuminance (Vertical) in the two columns labeled Category or Value (lux). Corrected letter assignments for the Casino and Gaming section are shown below:

In Section I. INTERIOR, page Interior-4: Under Educational Facilities, the row labeled Shops (see Section II, Industrial) should be BLANK all the way across the page. There should be no solid blue rectangle at the intersection of this row and the column titled Notes on Illuminance see end of section.

At the bottom of the right-hand column, in Figure 17-35, six Range of Sign Illuminance categories are presented, each with a numerical range in candelas/m2 and candelas/ft2 plus a brief description citing Potential Areas of Application. The first three of these descriptions should be revised. A portion of Figure 17-35 is shown below with the needed text changes in boldface: Candelas/ square meter 70 to 350 250 to 500 450 to 700 Candelas/ square foot Potential Areas of Application 7 to 35 Low brightness areas where signs are relatively isolated or have dark surrounds 25 to 50 45 to 70 Lighted facades and fascia signs Bright fascia signs as in shopping centers

In Figure 20-2 the Class of Play column for Curling is incorrect. Here, the final class listing should read III & IV (not II & IV).

Chapter 20, page 20-5

In Figure 20-2 some of the information given for Swimming (Water Sports) does not agree with a tabulation of the same data given in Table 5 of RP-6-01, Recommended Practice for Sports and Recreational Area Lighting. Therefore, Figure 20-2 should be revised so that the four values identified in the Lighted Area column as Luminances of the Pool Surface (Candelas per Square Meter) are as follows: Class of Play I II III IV 376 269 161 161

Note: you must refer to Table 5 as it is presented in the hard copy Errata insert for RP-6-01. Do not use the original Table 5 bound into RP-6-01 because it is incorrect.

Also in Figure 20-2, page 20-5, in the Lighted Area column (just below the statement Luminances of the Pool Surface (Candelas per Square Meter), the phrase Illuminances on Pool Deck is incorrect. It should say: Illuminances on Pool

Chapter 20, page 20-7


At the top of the page, in that portion of Figure 20-2 pertaining to Motor Racing, there is an error in the horizontal lux and footcandle levels given for Track (these levels appear in the Lighted Area column). In Class of Play III for Track, Figure 20-2 gives Horizontal Lux and Footcandle values of 800 and 80 respectively. However, the Horizontal Lux and Footcandle values for Class of Play III for Track should be 200 and 20 respectively. (This change will put the Handbook into agreement with Table 7 in RP-6-01.) 17

In Figure 20-2 under Soccer the illuminance values for Class of Play II, III, and IV should be the same as those given under Football for Class of Play II, III, and IV (see page 20-6 for Football). The corrected Soccer Illuminance values that replace those given in Figure 20-2 for Soccer are listed below: Class of Horizontal Play Lx Fc _____________________________ II III IV 500 300 200 50 30 20

In Equation 25-8c, at the very bottom of the right-hand column, the term (1 - r) in the denominator should be replaced by (i r). The correct equation is given below: (1 + r) [(1 + i)y (1 + r)y] P = A (i r) (1 + i)y (25-8c)

Chapter 25, page 25-3


The entire right-hand column on this page, with some text continuing over onto the left-hand column of page 25-4, contains discussions of four equations (25-4, 25-5, 25-7, and 25-7). These equations are correct, however the discussion/definitions that accompany each equation are somewhat inconsistent and/or incomplete. Therefore, replace this section with the following text: The first step in the LCCBA process is to complete the worksheet in Figure 25-2 for each system under consideration. The notes give estimates and default values to be used only as a last resort for values that are not available by any other means. Since initial costs and annual power and maintenance costs occur at different times, they cannot be directly compared. The second step, then, is to put all terms into their equivalent present worth or annual cost values to allow comparison. The following equations are used to take into consideration the time value of money. The single present worth of some single future monetary amount is calculated from: 1 P = F y ( 1+ i) where: P = present worth, or the equivalent value at present (dollars) F = future worth, or the amount in the future (dollars) y = number of years i = opportunity or interest rate as a decimal fraction (5% equals 0.05) 1 / (1 + i)y is called the single present worth factor This equation finds a value today, P, which is equivalent to a value in the future, F. In other words, one is equally willing to pay P dollars today or pay F dollars at a time y years in the future. The present worth of a series of future annual payments is determined by the following equation: (1 + i)y 1 P=A i(1 + i)y where: P = present worth of all annual payments (dollars) A = amount of each annual payment (dollars) y = number of years i = opportunity or interest rate as a decimal fraction [(1 + i)y 1] / [i(1 + i)y] is called the uniform present worth factor (25-5) (25-4)

19

This equation converts a stream of equal annual amounts into a single present value. There is no cost difference between making annual payments of A dollars for the next y years and paying P dollars today. In many cases it is helpful to extend present worth values over the life of a system. If present worth (P) is known, then the equivalent annual payment amount (A) can be found from: i(1 + i)y A=P (1 + i)y 1 where: A = amount of each annual payment (dollars) P = present worth, or amount at present (dollars) y = number of years i = opportunity or interest rate as a decimal fraction [i(1 + i)y] / [(1 + i)y 1] is called the uniform capital recovery factor Note that reciprocal of the uniform present worth factor is the uniform capital recovery factor. A stream of equal annual payment amounts (A) equivalent to one specified amount paid at a specific time in the future (F) can be found from: i A = F (1 + i)y 1 where: F = future worth, or amount in the future (dollars) A = amount of each annual payment (dollars) y = number of years i = opportunity or interest rate as a decimal fraction i / [(1 + i)y 1] is called the uniform sinking fund factor There is no cost difference between the offer of F dollars y years from now and the offer of A dollars each year for y years.

Section C at the bottom of Figure 25-2 should be revised to more accurately track the development of the first four LCCBA equations in the Chapter 25 text. Also, the footnote underneath Figure 25-2 should be deleted. The revised section C is as follows: C. Comparisons 1. Present worth: A10 + Pf (A13) + Pa(B12 + B13) 2. Annual cost: Ai (A10) + Af (A13) + B12 + B13

20

where: Pf = 1 / (1 + i ) y (single present worth factor) Pa = [(1 + i ) y 1] / [i(1 + i )y ] (uniform present worth factor) Ai = [i(1 + i )y ] / [(1 + i )y 1] (uniform capital recovery factor) Af = i / [(1 + i ) y 1] (uniform sinking fund factor) i = interest rate in decimal form y = system lifetime in years

In Equation 25-8c, at the very bottom of the right-hand column, the term (1 r) in the denominator should be replaced by (i r). The correct equation is given below: P=A (1 + r) [(1 + i) y (1 + r)y ] (i r)(1 + i)y (25-8c)
