Book 24:
Programming of luminaire components using NFC

Manufacturers of LED luminaires currently use a variety of programming methods to set the operating characteristics of LED drivers inside luminaires. Zhaga has standardized a digital, wireless programming approach using near-field communication (NFC).

The NFC programming specification lists the qualified NFC readers that luminaire manufacturers shall use for programming LED drivers with an integrated NFC tag. Implementation details about programming software and verification methods are specified in a secondary document, which is available to Regular and Associate Zhaga members only.


Note that Zhaga Book 24 “NFC programming specification” has been previously published by the MD-SIG as LEDset Power Interface Specification.  Since, Zhaga has obtained a license to make this specification available as Zhaga Book.
