Improved IES-EULUMDAT conversion in EulumdatTools 0.13.1.v20141027

A new version of EulumdatTools 0.13.1.v20141027 was published on October 27 at http://www.fold1.com/eulumdattools/.

IES to EULUMDAT and EULUMDAT to IES conversion was improved:

  • There was an error in conversion of files with absolute photometry, IES files signal this by having a -1 for lumens per lamp, EULUMDAT files signal this by have a negative number of lamps. The conversion now works correctly.
  • As the lighting industry is moving over to SSD lighting at tremendous speed, with resulting lower energy consumption, I found that the old rounding of wattage and power consumption are making conversion inaccurate. The number of decimal places for power consumption and wattages was increased to 2.
