¿seguro? Figura "candle power" como "intensidad lumínica"

Explanation:
"intensidad en bujías" y "potencia lumínica en bujías". También C.P.: poder luminoso, potencia luminosa.

Sospecho que "foot" se refiere a los 20-30 pies que esta potencia tiene que cubrir.

Definition of Foot Candle
A "Foot Candle" is a standard unit, established as a reference and used when measuring the quantity of light. One Foot Candle equals the total intensity of light that falls upon a one square foot surface that is placed 1 foot away from a point source of light that equals 1 candle power. The term candela also refers to candle power, 1 candela = 1 candle power.

A light meter is used to measure the foot candle level of a scene. A light meter incorporates a photo-sensitive cell that creates an electrical current when light falls upon it. The metric reference for light level is known as Lux.
