The Module-Driver Interface Special Interest Group (MD-SIG) is a global lighting industry consortium open for all interested parties, aiming to introduce a standardized multi-vendor electrical interface.
The smart electrical interface LEDset between LED control gear and modules is the missing link essential to the maturity of SSL components business. The LEDset interface created by the consortium allows communication and power transmission between an LED control gear and one or more LED modules.
Today, many different options are available on the market, leading to increased complexity and shortened availability for fixture OEMs. MD-SIG meets the growing demand in the market for harmonization by introducing a standardized multi-vendor electrical interface for LED systems. Thus matching LED modules with LED window drivers becomes much easier.
The benefits of such a harmonization for OEM and installers are:
- Easier to compare specifications
- Same coding resistors to use
- Wider selection of products
- Less interchange risk
