    I want to sell an LED lighting device to a township that has an ordinance
    that specifies a maximum of 50 foot-candles for a light source. My LEDs
    have a candela spec and we usually specify our devices in nits.

    If I know the nits of my device, is there a way to mathematically convert it
    to foot-candles?

    I also often get the question to convert nits to lumens.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Try Master Converter. It does a good job of performing all kinds of unit
    conversions. Plus you can input your own.

    I'm in no way affiliated with the makers of the program except that I use it
    very often.
