The lux is the SI (international system of units) derived unit of illuminance and the associated luminous emittance of the light. The symbol for a unit of lux is lx. The lux comes from the Latin term for light.

Candela [kanˈdeːla] [1] (Latin for candle) is the SI base unit of luminous intensity (symbol: cd), i.e. the power emitted by a light source per unit solid angle (steradian, sr), measured at a large distance to the light source.  

Lumen (Latin: light, illuminance) is the unit of luminous flux (symbol: lm). In photometry it is used to measure the power emitted in the wave range of visible light, using the units of candela (luminous intensity) multiplied by steradian (unit solid angle). This relationship is defined by the following formula: 1 lm = 1 cd(sr).
