Lights, Illumination

Definition : Lights designed to provide general illumination on a surface to facilitate tasks such as reading. Illumination lights convert electric power into emitted radiation typically in a wavelength range that includes the visible spectrum. These lights are available in several shapes and sizes and use various types of bulbs such as incandescent, compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), halogen, light-emitting diodes (LED), fluorescent tubes (e.g., straight and circular), and light-emitting diodes (LED). Illumination lights are available mounted in fixtures (e.g., lamps) of a wide range of shapes and sizes that may be in ceiling-mounted, stand-alone, wall-mounted, tabletop, and overbed configurations. Illumination lights are widely used in household and healthcare facilities as well as for portable lighting (e.g., flashlights). They can enhance task performance and/or help achieve esthetic or psychological effects.
