The new Zhaga-D4i interface standard for smart luminaires

The Zhaga Consortium (Zhaga) and the Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) have unveiled their joint Zhaga-D4i certification program in May 2019, indicating plug-and-play interoperability of luminaires, sensors and communication nodes. Combining the expertise in the two organizations, the Zhaga-D4i certification program will enable smart, future-proof LED luminaires with IoT connectivity. Initially, the focus is on outdoor lighting, but indoor solutions are also in development.

Zhaga-D4i certification will be available for outdoor LED luminaires that have a Zhaga Book 18 Ed 2.0 compliant interface, including Zhaga socket and D4i compliant power and control interface. Compatible sensors and wireless communication nodes with a Zhaga connector will also be eligible for Zhaga-D4i certification.

Certification is of utmost importance to provide the market with necessary confidence that luminaires and sensors and wireless communication nodes will interoperate flawlessly:
• The certification mark is issued after a verification by an independent test house
• Certified products are traceable in public databases
• Certification logos are trademarked to prevent misuse.

The standards-based certification regime offers additional business advantages:
• Certified luminaires and components are available from multiple suppliers
• Certification provide you with an established brand.
In short, certification ensures that your luminaire is future-proof and will be able to host next generation Zhaga-D4i nodes
Expected to launch in the third quarter of 2019, Zhaga-D4i certification will be made available by the Zhaga Consortium to its Regular and Associate members.
