AGi32 - Overview - Luminaires
   1  2  3       

AGi32 assembles luminaire definitions to form an internal catalog of luminaires for every job file. The luminaire definition includes photometric information (lumens, factors etc) as well as a symbol, sizing, color, and arrangement specifics. Each occurrence of the luminaire in the job file will access these parameters.

The Instabase, your personal photometric library

AGi32 is supported by many of the lighting industry's most prominent manufacturers through the photometric Instabase System. This is an online collection of manufacturers photometric data specifically prepared for AGi32 and available on our dedicated web server. Users can subscribe to individual databases (called Instabases) and be notified of updates immediately. Data is downloaded and ready for use with a couple of mouse clicks. Manufacturers data is updated regularly and the number of companies represented is growing steadily. See a list of participating manufacturers or visit our Photometrics page.

File formats

In North America, photometric files are distributed in a standard format determined by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). The file format is described in the LM-63-2002 document (the latest version). AGi32 can utilize any photometric data in the IES format. It is preferred that data files utilize at least the 1995 version of the format.
AGi32 is also fluent with both EULUMDAT and British Standard, CIBSE TM-14 data. Previous versions of AGi32 require these formats to be translated into IES format. Photometric Toolbox can handle this task.


With the acceptance of third party websites such as , and improved manufacturer sites, we feel it is important to allow designers using such resources to be able to effortlessly use photometric files linked in search results. Designers can drag a link for an IES photometric file directly into the Luminaire Define dialog in AGi32 eliminating the need to download and locate the file later. This functionality also works from local folders.
