CRI=82, is the nominal (tipically average) value
This does not mean that if you buy a fluorescent it will have a CRI = 82, but at least you can be sure that it will lie within the range provided
Is that the time or population "average"?
An implication of the statements of Waymouth and yourself, is that the phrase, "800 Series Phosphors," has nothing to do with any particular set of chemical phosphors and therefore any fluorescent bulb with any set of chemical phosphors that results in 79<CRI<90 can be advertised as "800 Series Phosphors." Is that correct? And, furthermore, since the phrase, "800 Series Phosphors," has nothing to do with phosphors (period), one can also advertise incandescent bulbs as "800 Series Phosphors" because 79<CRI<90. Correct?
