Both organisations have worked together to offer the world’s first Zhaga-D4i interoperability demonstration at the LED professional Symposium in Bregenz.
Zhaga and DiiA have standardized the interface between outdoor LED luminaires and sensors and communication modules. The initial focus has been on outdoor lighting, with indoor applications being a work in progress.
The standardization effort brings together complementary specifications from the two organizations, which cover mechanical fit, digital communication and power requirements. This ensures plug-and-play interoperability of the luminaires and modules, backed by the Zhaga-D4i certification program.
Zhaga-D4i certification allows qualifying luminaires and modules to carry the dual Zhaga and D4i logos. This provides a clear indication of plug-and-play interoperability, which is a strong benefit for specifiers, purchasers, installers and end users.
Zhaga and DiiA expect to launch their joint Zhaga-D4i certification program in the fourth quarter of 2019.
