To specify the most attractive form of Advantage for an application, determine the appropriate light source and socket spacing. Tailor the system to the specific task by selecting from the listed options and accessories.
Quality indirect lighting requires a seamless flow of light. Proper spacing between sockets is the key factor in achieving this goal. Surface finish also has an influence. A matte white finish inside the cove and on the reflective surface is best. A glossy surface will reflect lamp images, no matter how closely the sockets are spaced.
Recommended socket spacing varies, depending on how close the fixture is positioned from the reflective surface. Maintain the minimum distances shown to eliminate socket shadows and hot spots. More lamps will produce more light, but they will not always produce more uniform light.
Heat Consideration with Xenon Lamps
Xenon lamps produce heat and may cause harm if they come in direct contact with persons or combustible materials. If fixtures are positioned where these conditions can occur, Advantage should always be specified with the appropriate lens cover to prevent harm.
In accordance with NEC/NFPA 70 Article 410.11, combustible materials next to the fixtures must not be subjected to temperatures in excess of 90°C (194°F). In order to conform to this standard, fixtures need to be installed according to the minimum space requirements shown below.
