Our Vision

 

  • On top of their primary lighting task, LED luminaires are becoming increasingly smart and connected to IoT networks.
  • The design of a new luminaire is facilitated by the availability of a large supply of interoperable components, based on standardized interfaces, while still encouraging differentiation.
  • Zhaga creates specifications for electrical, mechanical, optical, thermal and communication interfaces for interoperable components to be used in LED luminaires.
  • These interoperable components allow the upgrading and servicing of LED luminaires, depending on the design choices by the luminaire manufacturer.
  • The ability to upgrade LED luminaires after installation is of great benefit to end customers. Their luminaires are future proofed to embrace upcoming innovations in the lighting industry, including the digital innovations beyond lighting.
  • The ability to service LED luminaires encourages more resource efficient business models that meet circularity requirements, including legislation and drive market growth.
  • The Zhaga logo proves the certification of interoperable components and provide an easy means to identify components that can be upgraded and serviced.
  • Zhaga creates new opportunities for the lighting value chain in the innovations beyond lighting.

 

Our Mission

 

  • To create specifications for electrical, mechanical, optical, thermal, and communication interfaces for the interoperable components used in LED luminaires and fixtures.

 

  • To make compliant components, each of which has been tested by a third-party, easily identifiable through a logo licensing program.
  • To enable manufacturers to make LED luminaires with Zhaga-compliant components that are upgradeable and serviceable, depending on the design choices made by the luminaire manufacturer and the serviceability level of the luminaire.
  • To promote the benefits and opportunities of using Zhaga-compliant components for new luminaire use cases to manufacturers, specifiers, installers, and professional end users.
  • To actively share Zhaga specifications with other global and regional standards development organizations, as well as national lighting organizations, with the end goal of gaining increased global acceptance of the Zhaga specifications.
  • To maintain design freedom and scope for differentiation by only restricting those parameters necessary for interoperability.
