Our Vision

  • The design of a new luminaire is facilitated by the availability of a large supply of interoperable components that standardize interfaces while still encouraging differentiation.
  • Zhaga creates specifications for electrical, mechanical, optical, thermal, and communication interfaces for the interoperable components used in LED luminaires.

  • Depending on the luminaire manufacturer’s design choices, these interoperable components allow for upgrading and servicing LED luminaires.

  • The Zhaga logo proves the certification of interoperable components and provides an easy means to identify components that can be upgraded and serviced.

  • The ability to service LED luminaires encourages more resource-efficient business models that meet circularity requirements, including legislation, and drive market growth.

  • The ability to upgrade LED luminaires after installation is of great benefit to end customers. Their luminaires are future proofed to embrace upcoming innovations in the lighting industry, including digital innovations that go beyond lighting.

  • In addition to their primary lighting task, LED luminaires are becoming increasingly smart and connected to Internet of Things (IoT) networks.

  • Zhaga creates new opportunities for the lighting value chain, including innovations that go beyond lighting

 

Our Mission

  • To create specifications for electrical, mechanical, optical, thermal, and communication interfaces for the interoperable components used in LED luminaires and fixtures.

  • To make compliant components, each of which has been tested by a third-party, easily identifiable through a logo licensing program.

  • To enable manufacturers to make LED luminaires with Zhaga-compliant components that are upgradeable and serviceable, depending on the design choices made by the luminaire manufacturer and the serviceability level of the luminaire.

  • To promote the benefits and opportunities of using Zhaga-compliant components for new luminaire use cases to manufacturers, specifiers, installers, and professional end users.

  • To actively share Zhaga specifications with other global and regional standards development organizations, as well as national lighting organizations, with the end goal of gaining increased global acceptance of the Zhaga specifications.

  • To maintain design freedom and scope for differentiation by only restricting those parameters necessary for interoperability.
