Posted on Monday October 14 2013, by Tim Whitaker

The LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS) took place on September 24-26 in Bregenz, Austria, and was attended by over 1,100 visitors from 34 countries. Research institutes, lighting organizations and the lighting industry presented their insights on the latest trends in LED and OLED lighting technologies in multiple sessions, workshops and throughout the exhibition area.

One of the Keynote speakers was Menno Treffers, secretary-general of the Zhaga Consortium, who gave a presentation entitled: “Zhaga - Lowering the Risk and Lowering the Cost of Getting Innovation in LED Technology to Market.”

In the LpS post-show report, a section on Trends and Innovations identified the “Transition to the Supersystem” as a major trend within the LED industry.

“The market is seeing an increased number of modularization and especially standardized modules (e.g. Zhaga),” said the report.

“Multiple companies deliver Zhaga-compliant system components for modules. One example is AAGStucchi from Italy who manufactures holders,” continued the report. “The distributor, MSC, from Germany showed fully integrated lighting solutions with Zhaga-compatible modules and snap-in reflectors.”
