Adding value with our service portfolio
Zhaga is an international, industry-wide consortium for the standardisation of LED lights, with specifications aimed at ensuring the interchangeability of LED light sources from different manufacturers. At present, many lighting companies make their own mutually incompatible LED modules. This lack of interchangeability in light sources drives up R&D costs as light sources need to be upgraded and various lighting parameters such as colour, temperature, light output and beam angle need to be constantly changed. Zhaga certification indicates that a lighting company’s products are standardised and follow Zhaga recommendations.
