Large Area Illumination Calculation Web Service

A company that manufactures and sells lighting equipment, as well as makes advanced demanded lighting calculation services has contacted Axmor.

The company approached Axmor to develop an online high-mast lighting calculator which should be integrated with their website. The company's potential buyers and project managers often require to calculate the approximate number of lighting units for large rectangular spaces, the lux level at a certain distance from the high-mast lighting or graphically visualize the high-masts lamps light distribution.

The Objective

Our developers had the goal to design and develop a simple and intuitive service for quick lighting calculation tasks.

Unlike professional lighting calculation tools that require installation and specific designing skills, Axmor's service allows you to conduct calculations on any device with internet access.

The online calculator service does not require downloading or installation, which significantly improves operational performance. This service is an informational web resource that allows the customer to select spotlights from the site database and perform lighting calculations, users also can select a spotlight, assess light distribution from a specific spotlight modification or perform a model comparison.

Software solution

The online calculator service is utilized to analyze the illumination of large areas, such as ports, airports, outside car parks, rail yards, stadiums, construction sites, quarries, etc.

The web based high-mast lighting calculator is located on the company's website in the 'Services' tab. The calculator allows to set object parameters, select high-mast type and compute information on the lux level at certain distances.

How the service works

The user opens an online service page on the site, the system displays the service interface
The user sets the lighting object’s parameters and the system transforms the area dimensions into 2D and 3D view
Using the mouse, the user arranges the high-masts area in the 2D view
The system displays the high-masts in 2D and 3D view, with a configured lighting crown selection. By moving the mouse cursor over the workspace, a tooltip is displayed with cursor coordinates and lux values at specific points.
For the selected high-mast, the user determines the height, the crown shape and the high-mast lamps arrangement scheme
The system displays the high-mast view according to the specified parameters in 2D and 3D
Once the high-mast lamp is selected, the chosen modification becomes current for all high-masts
The user then clicks on the ‘Calculate’ button, the system loads Calculation Service data. After the calculation, the system displays the light distribution in 2D/3D view and writes the output data into a results table
The system generates the lighting calculation report and loads it into a new browser tab
