Custom illumination class parameters?

Post by NicklasH » Fri Nov 25, 2016 8:26 am

The Swedish Transport Administration released new recommendations/demands last year
More official info here: (swedish)
Same page with google translate to english: ... GKCRQ06IYQ

This time their adapting their own custom lumination classes deviating from SS-EN 13201
Link to official documentation PDF:

Their new Px classes for example are basically the equivalent (and expanded upon) of the old Sx classes for pedestrian and bicycle paths.
Here is a snippet from page 259 of the PDF on demands for pedestrian and cyclists paths:

This time they also include disability glare (synnedsättande bländning) similar to the demans in the Mx type classes.
Would it be possible to optimize using an additional demand on TI in either Dialux or Dialux evo in order to conform to the new standard?

For example in Dialux 4 on road optimization it looks like this for S5 class:

And like this for ME5 class:

It is possible to customize to some extent which demands to optimize and perform calculations for:

Basically what I would want is a custom illumination class with the possibility to select all or multiple values to optimize for.
Manipulated screenshot example:

As you are eventually ending developing of Dialux 4 I assume if it was implemented it would be implemented into Diualux Evo.
As evo is right now however its not feasible to use for optimizing a lot of luminaries at once. (viewtopic.php?f=17&t=83058)

My main question is if there is any way to edit the illumination classes in Dialux 4?
If not I would like to request this feature :)
If you implemented the feature to manually select which values to optimize for you would also make your software ready for any local EU standards changing.

Dear NicklasH,

Unfortunately it gives no way in our DIALux 4 software to edit the illumination class by yourself.

Our strategy for the future is, that DIALux evo is the successor of DIALux 4.13 and we only developing DIALux evo in the future, but we will continue the support of our DIALux 4.13 software.
However, no new features will be implemented in our DIALux 4.13 software. We will only react on errors and requirements with new operating systems.

But I will put your wish on the improvement list for our DIALux evo software.

Kind regards,
Your DIAL Support Team
