The purpose of this SAE Information Report is to list and explain major equipment, instrumentation, and procedure variables which can affect inter-laboratory differences and repeatability of photometric measuremenst of various lighting devices listed in SAE technical reports. The accuracy guidelines listed in the report are for the purpose of controlling variable that are not a direct function of the lighting device being measured. The control of these individual variables is necessary to control the overall accuracy of photometric measurements. These accuracy guidelines apply to the measurement of the luminous intensities and reflected intensities of devices at the specified geometrically distributed test points and areas. These guidelines do no apply to photometric equipment used to measure license plate lamps.
