Luger Research has signed a contract with the general secretary of the Zhaga Consortium, Mr. Menno Treffers for the exclusive publishing rights of 7 articles put together by the consortium. The articles will be published in the LED professional Review #33 (LpR) and will be available in this form the 7th of September, 2012 worldwide through this channel.
The Zhaga consortium is engaged in the standardization of LED light engines. To enable interchangeability of LED light engines, Zhaga has created specifications for LED light engines covering several interfaces including mechanical, photometric, thermal, electrical and control interfaces.
The complete results of the Zhaga workgroups have been published in 7 books. Starting with books 1 and 3, Zhaga is planning to eventually make all 7 books accessible to non-Zhaga members as well. For books 1 and 3 there are now 7 corresponding articles available as an introduction and explanation. This is the first opportunity for non-Zhaga members to access this important information. To create exchangeable products these specifications are crucially important, especially for engineers and developers.
Siegfried Luger publisher of the LED professional and director of the LED professional Symposiums + Expo comments: “We are very proud to have been chosen as a Zhaga partner and ensure that this important information on standardization for LED light engines will be available to the widest possible audience. Through our substantial network in the lighting industry including our worldwide representatives, our LED professional publications and the LED professional Symposium + Expo we reach the lighting experts in industry, academia and organizations who find these articles highly interesting. Those people interested in being one of the first to receive an electronic copy as soon as it is available should register on our website now.”
To receive all 7 articles as soon as they have been published in the digital version of LED professional Review, interested parties should register at http://www.led-professional.com/ The articles are expected to be published by September 7th at the latest.
