The lighting industry is used to working with standardized light sources. Until recently, LED light sources from multiple vendors were not interchangeable because of the different mechanical, electrical, thermal and optical specifications varied from manufacturer to manufacturer. This meant luminaire makers were often tied to a single LED light source manufacturer. Zhaga opens new perspectives for everyone.
Zhaga is a global consortium from across the lighting industry. The overriding aim is to bring consensus and simplification to applications in general lighting by creating well defined interface and behaviour specifications.This ensures the interchangeability of LED light sources from different manufacturers. The industry needs increasing stability and the possibility to easily switch between suppliers of LED light sources. This simplifies LED applications for general lighting.
