    Electronic signs and light measurement instruments

    Does anyone have any suggestions what type of light measurement instrument should be used to measure NITs? Our ordinance regulates the NITs for electronic signs as measured from the surface of the sign. We do have a light measurement instrument, but it measures Foot-Candles. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    You use a nit gun which is pricey and I would not recommend that a city get one. I would suggest that you have the manufacturer pre set the NITs level so that it can not be user end manipulated. City of Mesa AZ has some langauge for this type of regulation.
