Zhaga-D4i certification moves several steps closer

December 19, 2019

The Zhaga-D4i certification program has made further progress with the signing of a sublicense agreement between DiiA and Zhaga, and the publication of the Zhaga Book 18 Ed 2.0 specification.

Zhaga-D4i is a joint program developed by DiiA and Zhaga. Certification and logo usage will indicate luminaires, sensors and communication nodes that have plug-and-play interoperability.

The photo shows Dee Denteneer, Secretary General of Zhaga, and Paul Drosihn, General Manager of DiiA, signing the sublicense agreement that enables use of the D4i logo on qualifying Zhaga-D4i products.

Zhaga recently announced the publication of Zhaga Book 18 Ed 2.0, which specifies the mechanical, electrical and communication interfaces between luminaires and sensors and/or communication modules. This includes details for a solution with two modules.

Zhaga-D4i certification is now available for LED luminaires that have a powered Zhaga Book 18 receptacle and use LED drivers meeting the D4i requirements. Zhaga-D4i luminaires will be listed on the Zhaga website.

Meanwhile, DiiA has certified the first D4i drivers, which can be found in the DiiA product database.

ANSI C136.58 standard aligned with Zhaga Book 18

In related news, the US-based National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has a new standard—ANSI C136.58-2019—which is aligned with Zhaga Book 18.  The standard entitled “Luminaire Four-Pin Extension Module and Receptacle—Physical and Electrical Interchangeability and Testing” provides mechanical and electrical specifications for interfacing street and area lighting with controls and sensor accessories.

“The new ANSI C136.58 Standard will allow our industry to use the Zhaga Book 18 interface for installation or removal of various types of sensors on our LED outdoor lighting luminaires,” said Kevin Fitzmaurice, Principle Engineer, Lighting & Smart Services, Georgia Power, and Chair of ANSI Roadway and Area Lighting Committee.
