First Zhaga certification for Book 4 luminaires

Posted on Tuesday December 17 2013, by Tim Whitaker

The first LED luminaires have achieved certification according to Zhaga Book 4.

Trilux ViatanaTwo Viatana street-lighting luminaires from Trilux, a Germany-based lighting manufacturer and Zhaga member, have been certified and are now entitled to carry the Zhaga logo.

All Zhaga-certified products are listed in the online Certified Products database. This includes different product types, such as LED modules, light engines and holders as well as LED luminaires, which have been certified according to Books 2, 3, 4, 7 or 8.

Book 4 describes a series of rectangular, high-output LED modules with separate electronic control gear. These are generally suitable for applications such as outdoor lighting and industrial high-bay lighting.

Viatana Book 4 luminaires

Trilux ViatanaThe Viatana outdoor lighting luminaires contain two LED modules and a single driver. The standardised Book 4 LED modules are mounted to an aluminium support, and can be replaced easily via a patented clamp system.

“The modular luminaire construction enables easy replacement of the standardised LED modules,” says the Viatana product brochure. “A highly-efficient free-form reflector guides the light specifically onto roads and parking lots and thus also contributes to high efficiency.”

The different Viatana models offer different light distribution patterns (LES 2 or LES 3) and luminous flux levels ranging from 2,000 lm to 9,000 lm, depending on the size of the module.

Trilux has also received certification for two Book 3 luminaires – the Inperla Ligra, a circular 150-mm-diameter recessed downlight, and the Athenik Ligra, a square (150x150-mm) recessed downlight. Both offer luminous flux levels of 3000, 2000, and 1100 lm, and a color temperature of either 3000K or 4000K.

Zhaga-certified luminaires

A total of 13 LED luminaires have now received Zhaga certification, including products from iGuzzini, RSA Cooper Lighting, USAI Lighting, and Cooper Lighting / Iris Lighting Systems.
