Book 11:

35-mm diameter spot LED modules

Please note that Book 11 has now been superseded by Book 10, the combined spot module Book. New products should be designed and certified using Book 10.

Book 11

Zhaga Interface Specification Book 11 defines circular LED modules with a maximum diameter of 35 mm and a typical height of 3.5 mm.

Book 11 LED modules require a separate LED driver (electronic control gear).

There are three categories in Book 11, which are defined by the maximum diameter of the circular light-emitting surface (LES).

Book 11 modules are suitable for spot-lighting and other applications that benefit from a small, circular source.

  • It is the first Zhaga Book to contain a reference to the LEDset specification for DMI
