Relux is a lighting calculation and design software for easily and positioning luminaires in indoor and outdoor scenes. Intermediate and Advanced users can go on to add furniture, 3D objects and to calculate Streetlighting.

This course using Relux software is offered at a foundation level where delegates are introduced to the software and taught how to personalise settings of the application. Delegates are shown how to select products including importing photometric data, calculation settings and report production.

Delegates will learn the manipulation of objects and placing grid controls in complex room shapes, CAD import for multi-room scenes. Emergency lighting for open area and escape routes is covered in detail

The course will give the delegates a level of understanding to be able to use the Relux software with confidence and prepare them to take the course at the intermediate level.

About Relux

Relux is a high-performance, intuitively-operated application for simulating artificial light and daylight. This powerful visualisation tool allows for simulation of lighting and sensors in real time for detailed renderings, and an extensive results section to provide a comprehensive report on lighting designs.

It can calculate absolute values, national and international standards, and is compatible with CAD and BIM systems, plus a great deal more.

The application software is available to download free of charge and has over 200,000 users of around the world.

Relux database plug-ins are electronic catalogues which enable the user to select and use a manufacturer’s luminaires within their designs. Leading international manufacturers make around one million product versions and items of measurement data available through Relux’s online platform ReluxNet®. The program also allows users to import luminaire data in the form of EuLumdat and IES data files from compatible sources.

The software supports the following standards for indoor, outdoor and road lighting:

> Indoor lighting -EN12464-1 (2013), EN1838 (2014)
> Outdoor Lighting - EN12464-2 (2013), EN 12193 (2008), GR to CIE 112 (1994)
> Road lighting -EN13201-2,-3 (2016)
