Luminous intensity distribution curve

The light intensity distribution curve is obtained by taking a section through the light intensity distribution, which represents the light intensity of a light source for all solid angles. With rotationally symmetrical light sources, the luminous intensity distribution can be shown by a single light intensity distribution curve, whereas two or more curves are required for axially symmetrical light sources. The light intensity distribution curve is generally expressed in the form of a polar coordinate diagram, but with projectors it is often shown in Cartesian coordinates.

Narrow-beam spotlights accentuate the object and make it stand out against the surroundings. The beam of light is stretched into an oval using a sculpture lens. Flood lenses spread out the narrow beam and create a soft brightness gradient.
The narrower the beam of light cast on the object, the stronger the effect. Sculpture lenses are particularly suitable for projecting light at objects over their entire height. With their wide light beam, flood lenses illuminate the surroundings stronger and represent the object in its spatial relationship.

Highlighting is used for modelling objects in:
  • museums
  • exhibitions
  • sales rooms
Preferred luminaire groups
  • spotlights with accessories
