Halcyon Measuring Diving Light
Halcyon prefers to describe diving lights using lux because this provides a gauge of intensity at a given distance, which is probably more relevant while diving or during signalling. Halcyon typically tests lux output at one, three, and five meters from the light source. These distances appear useful when evaluating intensity for general use and while signalling a dive buddy.
A lux measurement that is very close to the light source will be higher than a lux measurement recorded farther from the same light source because light diffuses as it gets farther from the source. Therefore, you can think of lumens as the amount of light available and lux as the lumens that are actually arriving at the intended target.
