A light strength meter. This meter can measure light units in lux, candela/m2, footlambert (FL) or footcandle.
The different unit types are displayed on the screen like this.
If u don't have access to the lighstrength unit to be measured but u do have another unit, here is the conversion calculation.
I have the meter selected to lux, the lightstrength in the toolstore at this moment is 357 lux.
Some typical lux values are
- Sunlight: 100.000 - 130.000 lux
- Indirect daylight: 10.000 - 20.000 lux
- Cloudy day: 1000 lux
- Typical office: 200 - 400 lux
- Dark day: 100 lux
- Dusk: 10 lux
- Evening dark: 1 lux
- Full moon: 0,1 lux
- Quart moon: 0,01 lux
- Clouded night with no moon: 0,0001 lux
When I hold a piece of paper over the sensor the value drops down to 68.7 lux.
Next I hold my hand on the sensor and the value drops right down to 0.8 lux.
If u want more information on this meter u can look at the user manual here.
