Most of the Fagerhult outdoor luminaires can be supplied with ZHAGA or NEMA sockets – a sustainable method for adapting our products to a flexible market. These outdoor luminaires have been future-proofed by making it possible to apply them to a variety of new areas of application.

Part of a future-proofed world

Our standardised solutions make it possible for our customers to further adapt our luminaires. Our aim is to increase the number of options available to our customers and to create improved quality of light in commercial, public and private lighting environments. 

Today, both Zhaga and NEMA sockets are in use with IoT technology. Both of these sockets provide the opportunity to adapt existing luminaires to future technologies. As new technologies are developed, this standardisation means that only the control unit needs to be updated, rather than the entire luminaire.

ZHAGA sockets

This connection is intended to allow the customer to utilise flexibility and interchangeability in a sustainable manner; both in terms of make and model as well as luminaire accessories. The connection is available on outdoor luminaires and provides an interface for creating smart exterior lighting.

Global organisation the Zhaga Consortium has been active in developing lighting industry standardisations since 2010. Zhaga has its origins in Europe and is a member of IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization (IEEE-ISTO).

NEMA sockets

The NEMA socket is a standardised connector originating in the North American lighting industry. The socket provides an electrical and mechanical connection between the control cell and the luminaire.

NEMA sockets are often found on outdoor luminaires, particularly on street lighting. This socket can be opened and closed by hand without the use of tools and will undoubtedly be one of the solutions for tomorrow’s smart urban lighting applications.
