DALI Lighting Control Provides an easy to use and intuitive management of electrical devices, a DALI Lighting Control system can offer the home owner with an energy efficient option to standard wiring systems.
Cost effective in terms of wiring and system components, DALI systems require less cabling for the electrician and, as fewer system modules are required, it can also help to keep the capital costs of the installation low.
DALI dimming is increasingly being recognised as offering the smoothest dimming curve available for LED lighting with dimming from 100 – 0 % with no flickering. This is due to the DALI dimming protocol which has 254 levels of brightness stepping down and/or up corresponding to eye sensitivity so that changes in brightness are observed as being perfectly uniform.
As the DALI protocol is non-proprietary, all products with the right to display the DALI logo conform to the same international standard and are therefore interoperable. This means you are not tied to obtaining products from just one supplier or manufacturer.
Individual system items can be selected by the electrical designer from a range of different manufacturers with consistency in performance ensured by DALI compliance.
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits to the end user is DALI’s flexibility to change. DALI offers light by light control so home owners can make changes to lighting configurations easily as each light is individually addressed.
For example, if four lights have been designed to be operated simultaneously and it was desired to split this into 2 groups of 2 lights, this would typically only be achievable with expensive changes to switched group wiring.
As DALI has 2-way communication to each light point, this change can be made via programming with no changes to wiring necessary. In addition, changes to programming can often be done remotely without the need for a service call out.
