2 Chapter 4-13 OUTDOOR LIGHTING Sections: DEFINITIONS APPLICABILITY STANDARDS EXEMPTIONS LIGHTING PLAN REQUIRED : For purposes of this Chapter, the following definitions shall apply: BULB: CANDELA: The source of electric light. To be distinguished from the whole assembly (See Luminaire). Unit of luminous intensity. EXTERIOR LIGHTING: Temporary or permanent lighting that is installed, located or used in such a manner to cause light rays to shine outside. Fixtures that are installed indoors that are intended to light something outside are considered exterior lighting for the purpose of this Chapter. FIXTURE: FLOOD LIGHT: FLUX: FOOTCANDLE: The assembly that holds the lamp in a lighting system. It includes the elements designed to give light output control, such as a reflector (mirror) or refractor (lens), the ballast, housing, and the attachment parts. Light that produces up to 1800 lumens and is designed to flood a well-defined area with light. Generally, flood lights produce from 1000 to 1800 lumens. Unit is erg/sec or watts. Illuminance produced on a surface one foot from a uniform point source of one candela. A unit of illuminance is equal to one lumen per square foot and is measured by a light meter.

3 FULL CUT-OFF FIXTURES: Fixtures, as installed, that are designed or shielded in such a manner that all light rays emitted by the fixture, either directly from the lamps or indirectly from the fixture, are projected below a horizontal plane running through the lowest point on the fixture where light is emitted. GLARE: Intense light that results in discomfort and/or reduction of visual performance and visibility. HOLIDAY LIGHTING: Festoon type lights, limited to small individual bulbs on a string. IESNA: LIGHT: LIGHT POLLUTION: LIGHT TRESPASS: LIGHTING: LUMEN: LUMINAIRE: Illuminating Engineering Society of North America. The professional society of lighting engineers, including those from manufacturing companies, and others professionally involved in lighting. The form of radiant energy acting on the retina of the eye to make sight possible: brightness, illumination, a lamp, etc. Any adverse effect of manmade light including, but not limited to, light trespass, up-lighting, uncomfortable distraction to the eye, or any manmade light that diminishes the ability to view the night sky. Often used to denote urban sky glow. Light emitted by a luminaire that shines beyond the boundaries of the property on which the luminaire is located. Any or all parts of a luminaire that function to produce light. Unit of luminous flux; the flux emitted within a unit solid angle by a point source with a uniform luminous intensity of one candela. One footcandle is one lumen per square foot. One lux is one lumen per square meter. A complete lighting system consisting of a lamp or lamps together with the parts designed to distribute the light, to position and protect the lamps, and to connect the lamps to a power supply.

4 MOTION SENSOR DEVICE: A device that will sense motion electronically and switch on a security light necessary for public health, safety, and welfare for a brief duration. OUTDOOR LIGHT FIXTURE: Outdoor, electrically powered illuminating devices, lamps and similar devices, permanently installed or portable, used for illumination or advertisement. Such devices shall include, but are not limited to, search, spot and flood lights for: Buildings and structures; Recreational areas; Parking lot lighting; Billboard and other signs; Landscape lighting; Street lighting; Building overhangs and open canopies; Product display area lighting. OUTDOOR LIGHTING: Lighting that directly illuminates areas not completely enclosed by a structure. PARTIALLY SHIELDED: The bulb of the fixture is shielded by a translucent siding and the bulb is not visible at all. Light may be emitted at the horizontal level of the bulb. RECESSED: SHIELDED: UP-LIGHTING: When a light is built into a structure such that the light is fully cut-off and no part of the light extends or protrudes beyond the underside of that structure. When the light emitted from the fixture is projected below a horizontal plane running through the lowest point of the fixture where light is emitted. The bulb is not visible with a shielded light fixture, and no light is emitted from the sides of the fixture. Also considered a full cut-off fixture. Lighting that is directed in such a manner as to shine light rays above the horizontal plane.
