HID to LED Wattage Cross Reference

* Scotopic refers to visual perception in low light. Photopic refers to colour perception in normal light. The ratio of Scotopic light vs Photopic light is called S/P ratio. This ratio determines the apparent visual brightness of a light source. Higher S/P ratios  appear brighter to the human eye. See: “Energy Efficiency Consequences of Scotopic Sensitivity”, Dr. Sam Berman, Journal of the IES, Vol 21 No.1, Dec. 1992 “The Coming Revolution in Lighting Practice”, Dr. Sam Berman,  http://www.lightenergysource.com/ScotopicTechnical.htm

**Scotopic/Photopic ratios used: MH/PSMH = 1.49, HPS = 0.62, LED (6500K) = 2.14. HID fixtures assumed to be 70% optically efficient, actual efficiency will vary. Mean lumens of 95% used for LED.
