Zhaga. Smart Lighting for Smart Cities
Thanks to sensors and communication modules, modern LED luminaires will also be able to provide smart services. A key part of these luminaires are connectors, such as the LUMAWISE Endurance S series. They can be found in our product range under the TE Connectivity brand, a member of the Zhaga Consortium - the organization for standardization of LED lighting components for public lighting.
One of the very important and active members of Zhaga is the TE Connectivity, a global technology company specializing in connectivity and sensor solutions. In January 2019, International expert organization DEKRA issued its first Zhaga Book 18 certification for a connectivity plug developed by TE Connectivity (TE).
Solutions, according to Zhaga Book 18, bring connectivity functionalities to outdoor LED lighting fixtures, creating amazing opportunities for IoT applications in smart city environments.
To standardize LED technology and make it more replaceable and interchangeable, there’s a growing need for connectivity solutions which also provide added value by enabling new applications for smart city services.
TE’s LUMAWISE Endurance S connector delivers connectivity between an outdoor LED luminaire and a sensor or communication module that sits on the outside, making it easy to upgrade existing or new outdoor LED lighting systems.
LUMAWISE Endurance S was developed in close cooperation with Zhaga and with regards to the specifications in Book 18, which foster new ways in the design and functionality of outdoor lighting systems. The certification by DEKRA not only opens up greater possibilities for developers, installers and users but also gives them the reliability of an established industry standard.
The increasing use of LED in outdoor applications reduces the energy consumption of local authorities, councils and utility companies. Modern LED luminaires will be able to provide higher efficiency, easier maintenance and, thanks to sensors and communication modules, smart services such as traffic monitoring, incident detection or pollution monitoring.
We decided to add a basic selection of LUMAWISE Endurance S components to our stock products.
There are two sizes of this connector system. The receptacle is common for both 40mm and 80mm size. Basis and domes are different. The domes can be clear or smoke grey and regarding their height, there are low (33,43mm), medium (43,43mm) and tall (58,43mm) for 80mm sizes and low (24,25mm) and tall (39,25mm) type for 40mm sizes. You can find all the important information about the LUMAWISE Endurance S products on our website.
