I was hoping someone could help me with conversion of Nanowatts to either lux or footcandles.  Thanks

I do not think you can convert directly between them.

Neither Lux nor Footcandles take power into account in their definition. I think they need to be measured completely separately.

The manufacturer of the light may have measured it and be able to help you. You could try contacting the manufacturer.

Another good place to try might be a Consumer Reports type site, which often compares things such as lights, and they may have measured the watts and illumination.
