8202 level 3 - Principles of lighting


Suitable for City and Guilds 8202 Level 3

Part of our Electrical Installation range.



This solution allows students to understand the principles of designing lighting systems for domestic and industrial buildings.  The kit consists of a Locktronics base board, a set of high power MES LED bulbs, switch and connectors and a light meter. 

Students can arrange the bulbs in varying positions and densities and measure light intensity using the light meter provided.  Students can explore the different effects on light intensity through the angle of lighting, the distance away from the light source, and the density of light sources.

A full set of worksheets is available for download.

Further instruments may be required.  Please contact us for information.
