“The Zhaga mission includes the active sharing of Zhaga specifications with other global and regional standards development organizations with the goal of gaining increased global acceptance of the Zhaga specifications”, states Dee Denteneer, Secretary General of the Zhaga Consortium.

The Book 7 equivalent IEC standard can be found here.

Zhaga Book 7 defines a family of linear and square LED modules that typically could be used for indoor lighting applications.

It has been widely adopted in the market. The LED modules require a separate LED driver (electronic control gear), and are typically mounted in a luminaire, for example by means of screws. Book 7 LED modules are intended to be mounted and replaced by professionals only. There are 18 LED module categories in Book 7, which are defined by the overall maximum dimensions of the LED modules.

The maximum dimensions of the LED modules also indicate the size of the exclusion zone for luminaire design. The only restriction on the light-emitting surface (LES) of the LED modules is that all light should be emitted above the upper surface of the module.

This provides maximum design freedom with respect to the placement of LEDs on the module. To learn more about Zhaga specifications, called Books, visit the Zhaga Book overview.
