The GEO-LUMIOS measures the level of luminance, or brightness,created by natural light at the tunnel entrance/exit to ensure that the visual perception of drivers is maintained,both day and night, by avoiding sudden variations in lighting levels and potential “black hole effect” when entering and exiting a tunnel. The GEOLUMIOS can also be used for the measurement of luminance within the tunnel.
The GEO-LUMIOS uses a specially designed highly light -sensitive photocell,filtered to provide a spectral response close to that of the average human eye, to react to changes in light levels at the entrance and exit to,as well as within,the tunnel environment. This reaction is virtually instantaneous. The light receptor measures the average luminance within a fixed viewing angle that can be set during manufacture within a range 10º to 40º. The standard instrument has an acceptance angle of 20º, (as recommended by Commission Internationale de l´Eclairage, (C.I.E.), publication 88,1990). The luminance measurement range is 0 - 10,000 cd/m2, which can be scaled to suit customer requirements.
