Zhaga is an industry-wide cooperation aimed at the development of standard specifications for the interfaces of LED light engines.
An LED light engine is an LED module with defined interfaces that do not depend on the type of LED technology used inside the light engine.
Zhaga will enable interchangeability between products made by diverse manufacturers.
Interchangeability is achieved by defining interfaces for a variety of application-specific light engines. Zhaga standards will cover the physical dimensions, as well as the photometric, electrical and thermal behavior of LED light engines.
Zhaga is established for the benefit of the consumers and professional buyers of light engines and luminaires, in the expectation that standardization will prevent market fragmentation into incompatible products. Zhaga standards will increase the confidence to specify and purchase LED products that will be easily replaceable and commercially available, while continuously enjoying the performance upgrades that LED technology enables. In addition, this will foster innovation and competition in the application of LED lighting in general.
