Zhaga has published Edition 1.2 of Book 4, its specification for LED light engines (LLEs) for applications that need a high-intensity light source, such as street lighting and industrial high-bay lighting.
For the first time, the full version of Book 4 is now available for public download from the Zhaga website.
Zhaga Interface Specification Book 4 defines the interchangeability requirements for high-light-output LED light engines (LLEs), where each LLE comprises a rectangular LED module with a separate LED driver (electronic control gear).
The three LLE categories in Book 4 are defined by the size of the rectangular light-emitting surface (LES). These LES dimensions are 30 mm x 7.5 mm, 42 mm x 10.5 mm, and 60 mm x 15.0 mm.
Several companies have already achieved Zhaga certification for LED modules and LED luminaires that comply with Book 4. The Certified Product Database includes Book 4 modules from Philips and Osram, as well as Book 4 luminaires certified by Trilux.
