What is a Lux?

Lux is simply one lumen per square meter. It is a measure of visible light over an area. While lumens measure the visible light output of a source, lux actually quantifies the level of visible light in an area. Foot candles are also commonly used in the US to describe light levels. One foot candle equals one lumen per square foot, or a little less than 11 lux.
