What is a DALIcontrol System?
DALIcontrol lighting systems can be scaled from single rooms to complete buildings and campuses.
A simple system could consist of a few light fittings and a switch connected to a DALI group controller. The switch provides on/off control and up/down dimming of the fittings. Minimal configuration is required and ballasts do not need to be individually addressed.
A grouped system consists of multiple ballasts individually addressed on a DALI Line. Addressing of the ballasts takes approximately 15 minutes for random addressing and 30 minutes for sequential addressing. Inputs on a Line Controller or a group controller can be configured to provide switching and dimming as required. The functionality of the inputs depend on the controller’s capabilities however typical examples include switches, pushbuttons, occupancy sensors and light level sensors.
Multiple DALI Lines can be linked together with DCBM DALI Line Controllers that combine DALI Lines onto an Ethernet backbone.
