Addressing Your Need for Innovation
DALI, which stands for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface, is a standard communication protocol designed to digitally control lighting. This protocol is implemented in buildings to control smart lighting systems as, in its second edition called DALI-2, it allows lighting control devices (such as electronic ballasts), motion detectors, and light sensors to communicate with each other. The result is a state-of-the-art lighting solution that can be easily installed, configured and controlled via a user-friendly graphic interface.
The DALI protocol enables the control of lighting groups or single lights, even dimmable ones. In addition, a Lighting Automation system built in accordance with the DALI protocol offers maximum flexibility and adaptability of lighting units in the event of new conditions or different room use. It requires no hardware or rewiring intervention. Lights can also be easily allocated or grouped together after installation (e.g., change of room use). Finally, the advanced DALI controllers can be integrated into building automation systems to manage other smart building functions via bus systems.
DALI is an open standard, a universal system that is easy to use, extremely versatile, and very inexpensive. To date, the standard protocol used has been the first edition of the DALI protocol. It is a technology still in use today that has transformed simple lights into true configurable devices by bringing the digital world to the lighting domain.
DALI-1 is a functional architecture based on a master/slave communication protocol. Moreover, in this first version of the DALI standard, it is only the master that activates communication while the slave devices execute it. A slave device cannot, under any circumstances, independently initiate communication. The Lighting Automation system based on DALI must be equipped with a DALI power supply, to maintain the DC voltage needed to encode the signal. It also provides power to all connected devices.
Finally, support for control devices, such as sensors or switches, is not included in DALI. Any control devices that may be installed can only communicate with the master without being connected to the DALI bus. Therefore, in order to operate, it needs another bus system to which the various control devices can be connected. This entails a greater economic commitment both in terms of the material used and the labor required for installation.
The DALI-2 standard is the new solution in the world of smart lighting. It allows for a streamlined, scalable, and less expensive architecture, where different connected devices can also exchange data and commands between themselves (not possible with DALI-1).
With DALI-2 you can connect and control not only lights, but also:
- Wireless interface modules for ENOCEAN technology switches.
DALI-2 standardizes the use of control devices such as switches, sensors, etc., (not included with DALI-1) and introduces several new features:
- A Multimaster architecture, which can simultaneously send messages and commands on the DALI bus, without the risk of collisions.
- The "Application Controller" function, which, among other things, can control communication between devices and switches/sensors.
- A well-defined communication flow, that always requires the communication data to be sent to the Application Controller and never between switches and lamps.
Duemmegi's goal is to simplify a lighting control system as much as possible by offering a complete solution based on DALI-2 technology. This is possible thanks to the DUELUX system, which can cover all installation needs, including the possibility of wireless control enabled by transmitters with ENOCEAN technology, using wireless communication that requires no batteries. DUELUX is a smart lighting system that that can be fully configured quickly and intuitively using a browser. The system is accessible from any device with a web browser. It can therefore be configured and operated using a PC/Laptop, smartphone or tablet regardless of the operating system used.
Any DALI-2 system can be deployed in a more complex system and become a full-featured building automation system to control all other functions of a smart building (temperature control, technical alarms, security systems, access control, etc.). By leveraging the advantages of the DALI-2 standard, you’ll have access to a complete automation system, with a Lighting Automation component and a Building Automation component talking to each other. The benefit is a lower cost compared to an architecture designed solely for a building automation system. In addition to the typical functionality of a Building Automation system, this mixed architecture (and the DALI-2 architecture in general) makes it possible to install a combination of light and presence sensors to avoid the use of switches in rooms.
The goal of the DUELUX system is to simplify a lighting control system as much as possible. Duemmegi offers a complete lighting automation system based on DALI-2 technology. To cover all installation needs, the following are available: DALI-2/Ethernet gateways, push-button or switch interfaces (also wireless), and ON/OFF or motor control actuators (shutters, projection screens, skylights, and more).
The DUELUX DALI-2 system provides an architecture configured as follows: a DALI-2 bus for communication with ballasts/lamps (up to a maximum of 64) connected to the DLCP controller module. On the same bus, you can connect:
- Combined sensors (presence/light and motion/lighting).
- Interface modules for pushbuttons or switches.
- Modules with relay outputs.
The interconnection between the various DLCP control units is made through an Ethernet network. The graphic interface is user-friendly and very easy to configure, without the need to know any programming languages. No specific technical training is required, as configuring the system is simply a matter of using the graphic interface that offers various drop-down menus. The interface is online and can be accessed via IP address with any device equipped with a web browser. Therefore, there is no need to download any software to the computer.
Duemmegi's DUELUX system provides the option of wireless control. This is a useful feature in working environments featuring glass walls or in historic monuments and buildings where drilling holes in the wall is not possible. In these cases, the DLWRX receiver module can interface the DALI-2 bus with up to 4 transmitters, each equipped with 4 switches that use ENOCEAN technology (wireless and without batteries). The only connection required for the DLWRX module are the two DALI-2 bus cables, while the required power supply is sourced from the bus itself. In a Lighting Automation system with wireless controls, only the following items are required:
- A DLCP (controller module for DALI-2 bus)
- One or more DLWRXs (wireless receiver modules)
- One or more ENOCEAN wireless switches
- Lamps (with a DALI-2 system, individual lamp and groups of lamps can be controlled, including the creation of light scenarios).
Duemmegi's DUELUX Lighting Automation system is fully configurable via a web browser. It’s an innovative and simple system even during commissioning. The following can be performed through the web-based interface accessible from any fixed or mobile device equipped with a web browser (PC/Laptop, smartphone, tablet, etc.):
- Automatic field addressing (DALI lamps, sensors, input modules, wireless switches, relay actuators, etc.).
- Creation of areas and groups.
- Configuration of scenarios and command logic.
- Timer settings.
- Exchange of information and commands between multiple DALI-2 buses (which reference different DLCPs).
This is highly simple and intuitive and requires no knowledge of any specific programming languages. There is no need for an active Internet connection since all you need is a connection to an access point on the DLCP controller module in order to have access to the entire system.
