Intended to promote uniform test results as obtained under controlled laboratory conditions in measuring the luminous flux and intensity of high intensity discharge (HID) and incandescent indoor-type luminaires. This includes the photometry of luminaires with high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, including mercury vapor, high-pressure sodium (HPS), or metal halide lamps, as well as similar luminaire types employing incandescent lamps, including tungsten-halogen lamps.
