Are all DALI lights dimmable?

Lamps are never (directly) DALI dimmable. DALI is a standard so any DALI dimmer switch will work for a DALI dimmable driver.

What does DALI dimming mean?

Digital Addressable Lighting Interface
DALI stands for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface. The DALI protocol is managed under IEC standard 62386, recognised internationally as a global standard for professional digital lighting.

How are DALI lights wired?

The DALI line is a 4 or 5 wire system (requiring active, neutral and two control wires). An earth wire is required in single insulated devices. A DALI line can be connected to a maximum of 64 DALI type devices. Every DALI line requires a DALI power supply.

How does a DALI sensor work?

HOW DOES DALI WORK? The core of DALI is a bus – a pair of wires that carries digital control signals from input devices (such as sensors), to an application controller. The application controller applies the rules with which it has been programmed to generate outgoing signals to devices such as LED drivers.

What does 0-10V dimming mean?

0-10V dimming is a lighting control method that – on direct current voltage (DC) between 0 and 10 volts – can produce light at varying intensity levels. 0-10V dimming is the simplest control system for lighting, providing smooth operation and dimming down to 10%, 1%, and even 0.1% light level.

What is the difference between DALI and KNX?

KNX offers much of the the same functionality as DALI systems but without the need to individually address each Light fixture meaning a huge cost saving from the absence of specialist ballasts per fitting and labour to address same.

What does 0 10V dimming mean?

What is DALI lighting used for?

Lighting control with DALI – The “Digital Addressable Lighting Interface” (DALI) is a communication protocol for building lighting applications and is used for communication between lighting control devices, such as electronic ballasts, brightness sensors or motion detectors.
