As we recently featured how BJB is favorably positioned for today's outdoor lighting demands, it's important that the connection technology regulates the interaction between the luminaire and sensor for the communication module to be perfect. It's not just about the optics...it's also about the quality of the connection technology...and BJB provides this.

For this reason, BJB offers the Zhaga Receptacle electromechanical interface. This standardized interface is compatible with numerous sensors and communication modules from different manufacturers and is equally suitable for wall and surface luminaires.

Lighting according to Zhaga Book 18

Smart city solutions is one of the future topics of urban development. With the new connection socket system for outdoor luminaires according to Zhaga Book 18, BJB presents a system that allows you to get started with Smart City technology on any outdoor luminaire quickly and easily in the public sector.

This interface has been developed especially for LED light sources and drivers in outdoor light fixtures. The basis for this development is an IP-compliant receptacle with a sealing cap.

The unit provides a complete electrical interface between the receptacle and the respective sensor modules. When used in conjunction with sensor-compatible certified drivers (e.g. Philips), the receptacle assembly is suitable for a plug-in sensor module with a twistlock system.

For communication and data transmission, the module is provided with DC power and a DALI 2 or a 2-wire bus. The fourth connection is reserved as a digital IO port.

The compact design with an improved seal facilitates the installation of the sensor module on roadway, street and surface area lights upwards, sideways or downwards.

Founded in 1867 by Friedrich Wilhelm Brokelmann, Franz Jager and Gustav Busse, BJB has been associated with lighting technology for more than 150 years. Initially the business began by manufacturing components for oil lamps. Since the beginning of the 20th century, BJB has been providing the electrical connection between the power source and the lamp. Equipped with this knowledge, the company continuously developed user-friendly lampholder systems, terminal blocks and switches up to the present day for markets throughout the world. In other words: BJB provides a “Connection to Light”. The process that these “connections” are installed and the progress which can be achieved in light fitting assembly is the objective of a further area of operation: ADS automation. Here we develop, build and supply customer-specific systems for the automation of light fitting production. A third important element is our lighting solutions for domestic appliances, as a dominant player in the industry. Visit us at BjB.com! We are “Technology for Light”.
