Making LED light sources interchangeable

Zhaga is a global consortium of companies from the international lighting industry. Its overall aim is to develop interface specifications that allow LED light sources from different suppliers to be used interchangeably, without changing the luminaire design. In turn, this should speed up the adoption of LEDs for general lighting.
  • Zhaga establishes specifications for four key interfaces of an LED light engine: mechanical, thermal, electrical and photometric.
  • Zhaga uses the term “LED light engine” to describe the combination of an LED module and its associated electronic control gear.
  • Suppliers can offer differentiated LED light engines, provided they have compatible interfaces.
