23 April 2012 First test house appointed for ZigBee Light Link standard TRaC Global has been appointed as the first test house validated by the ZigBee Alliance to conduct Light Link testing for the ZigBee Certified product programme. The Light Link standard, announced by ZigBee last week, aims to give the lighting industry a global standard for interoperable consumer lighting and control products. Paul Russell, director at TRaC, commented: "We have played an instrumental part in bringing the ZigBee Light Link standard to market, having provided independent testing for the first ZigBee Certified products submitted by Atmel, Ember, OSRAM, Philips and Texas Instruments." TRaC's appointment places it as the first organisation able to carry out the testing required in order to obtain ZigBee Certified product status for products using ZigBee Light Link. Jos Bruins, Light Link working group chair from Philips, said: "The ZigBee Light Link working group has enjoyed a successful relationship with TRaC for a number of years and once again the TRaC team has delivered. It has efficiently managed the ZigBee Light Link testing process and aided with the successful completion of the new standard."
