Technical Guide on Zhaga-D4i Control Devices Published


Fecha: 20-11-2023

The Zhaga Consortium and the DALI Alliance have jointly published a technical guide that describes the key considerations to achieve Zhaga-D4i certification of control devices. Zhaga-D4i, a joint certification program provided by the Zhaga Consortium and the DALI Alliance, is designed to ensure plug-and-play interoperability between certified luminaires and certified control devices.

Zhaga-D4i luminaires can have one or two Zhaga interfaces (connectors), each of which accommodates a luminaire-mounted Zhaga-D4i control device, such as a sensor or a wireless communication device (also known as a network lighting controller or NLC).

Tenders and system specifications should request not only certified Zhaga-D4i luminaires but also appropriate certified Zhaga-D4i control devices. Certification indicates full compliance with the relevant specifications.

The technical guide gives an overview of the Zhaga-D4i certification and lists the D4i device types. It further explains that the Zhaga specifications for outdoor (Book 18) and indoor (Book20) lighting applications only allow certain D4i device types to be Zhaga-D4i certified and the reason behind.

Both organisations have published the technical guide on their website. Find out more:
