This component is to be used for specifying the location of luminaires for electric lighting simulations.
-
For external lighting applications the best option would be to use the aimingPoint_ option to specify where all the luminaires should be aimed to.
In case luminaires are being aimed by specifying spin, tilt and orientation angles, the following conventions apply:
1. _spin_ : specifies the rotation of a luminaire about its G0 axis.
2. _tilt_: species the rotation of a luminaire around the Y axis.
3. _orientation_: specifies the rotation of a luminaire around the Z axis.
The recommended sequence of applying rotations is tilt,orientation and spin.
_
The aiming conventions followed in this component are based on the IES LM-63-2002 and were tested against indoor lighting simulations with AGI32 software.
