The prevised place number only serves for the estimation of the possible memory requirement on the mass memories. Every data element is saved as ASCIIstring and equipped with an EOSsymbol.
The data format described here serves for the Lighting fixture data exchange provided that lighting fixture and dataset are assigned doubtlessly. In case nevertheless lighting fixtures with the same relative radiant caracteristics shall be combined in one file which dispose of different dimensions, efficience degree and fittings, in the corresponding positions there can be filed various data elements, separated by one space key each with the prevised place number. Correspondingly it is possible to save direct utilized flux shares, too, for the upper semisphere.
For C90C270 symmetrical luminaires, indicated by Isym=3, the measured Cplanes are listed starting at C0 (pos. 28). However, the luminous intensities are listed starting at the values of the C270 plane via the C0 plane in the order given in pos. 26. Example: C270, C285, C300, C315, C330, C345, C0, C15...
