The joint Zhaga-D4i certification program from the DALI Alliance and the Zhaga Consortium will now accept the submission of D4i control devices with Zhaga connectors for Zhaga-D4i certification. Eligible devices include light-level or occupancy sensors, as well as control nodes that can communicate wirelessly with external networks. Certified Zhaga-D4i products can carry the dual logos of Zhaga and D4i which together indicate plug-and-play interoperability of sensors, communication nodes and luminaires.
“Bringing control devices into the Zhaga-D4i program will enable a certified ecosystem of interoperable products from multiple vendors, which will be welcomed by the lighting market,” says Paul Drosihn, DALI Alliance General Manager.
Zhaga-D4i luminaires have a powered Zhaga receptacle, which can accommodate a D4i-certified sensor or communication node with a corresponding Zhaga baseplate. Also, Zhaga-D4i luminaires use LED drivers meeting the D4i requirements, including the availability of DALI luminaire, energy and diagnostics data.
