Luminaires with a Zhaga interface provide reliable illumination for areas such as streets or parks. Installing luminaires with a Zhaga Book 18 interface is an investment in the future: wireless control and monitoring is enabled by the use of communication modules. Retrofitting at a later date or subsequent replacement is easily possible.
Using luminaires with a Zhaga interface is the convenient and quick solution for the control of street and footpath illumination – for example online via the cloud:
For existing systems without DALI wires that require digital control
For existing systems and their luminaire connection boxes that are not suitable for retrofitting five-wire cables due to the maximum cable cross-section or for which extensive earthworks should be avoided
For new systems for which no local cable-bound network infrastructure can be established, or where this is not desired
For new systems for which no local Internet infrastructure for cloud-based control can be established, or where this is not desired
Zhaga Book 18 specifies the mechanical, electrical and communications technology standard for the interface between a communication module or sensor and the luminaire electronics
The Zhaga D4i certification of our LED luminaires guarantees an electrified standardised jack and the use of power supply units that fulfil the D4i requirements
The communication between the communication module or sensor and the power supply unit of the luminaire is standardised and therefore works across different manufacturers
The luminaires can also be operated without a communications and/or sensor module – retrofitting is extremely easy
The communication between individual luminaires and/or an overarching system is wireless.
We developed the Zhaga Air Connector especially for compatible pole-top luminaires. It brings IoT capabilities to every luminaire without the need for a control cable or on-site internet access. Every luminaire with a Zhaga Book 18 base can be integrated into the BEGA Connect Cloud with the Zhaga Air Connector – in the proverbial blink of an eye! Combination with other Zhaga sensor modules is also possible.
Each Zhaga Air Connector represents a separate endpoint to the BEGA Connect Cloud. All luminaires in the platform can be managed in a common system and therefore follow the same automation rules.
The connectivity system makes it possible to add, exchange or upgrade sensor modules at any time independently of the manufacturer. Sensor configuration is carried out via the control system connected through the communications module.
