Optimize Mounting Height for Template
This dialog allows you to optimize a template based on a specified Iso-Illuminance value. The optimum Mounting Height is the height which produces the maximum area covered by the specified Isoline. By default, the Isoline to Optimize text box is populated with the first checked Isoline value in the Template Specification dialog.
The process begins with a 30 foot (or 10 meter) mounting height. The mounting height is first increased, then decreased until the optimum mounting height is found. The "test" template is based on a 8 x MH grid size with a MH / 5 point spacing.
When a template is generated that produces "pools" of light, instead of one iso-contour shape, the largest pool is used to determine the optimum mounting height.
