  • Compatible with DALI and DALI-2 Standard.
  • The DALI gateway Plus forms the interface between a KNX installation and a digital DALI lighting system.
  • Control of max. 64 DALI operating devices as individual control, group control in max. 32 groups, or central control via a broadcast telegram (group 17 – 32 each with max. 2 operating devices).
  • Manual operation of the devices also independent of the bus (also building site operation with broadcast control).
  • Energy-saving function: Deactivation of the power supply to the DALI operating devices possible in a switched-off state (using additional switching actuator for KNX).
  • 16 light scenes.
  • The groups can be integrated in the light scenes.
  • Effect control can be configured for max. 16 sequences in 1 to 500 run-throughs (or infinite).
  • Feedback about DALI error status or short circuit and notification of power supply failure.
  • Active or passive (object can be read out) cyclical feedback function.
  • Group feedback of all switching conditions possible.
  • Feedback can be delayed until after the recovery of bus voltage.

Group and device functions

  • Switching and brightness value: Active (send to the bus in case of change or cyclically) or passive (object can be read out) feedback functions.
  • Brightness range can be set.
  • Bulb-saving switch-on and switch-off
  • Dimming behaviour can be parameterised.
  • Time functions (switch-on or switch-off delay, advanced staircase function – pre-warning function in accordance with DIN 18015-2 or reduced continuous lighting).
  • Block function or alternatively forced setting function can be parameterised for each group. With block function, the flashing of light groups is possible.
  • Readout of the DALI device status using KNX.
  • Elapsed-hours meter as forward and backward counter with limit value evaluation.
  • Online or offline configuration of the DALI devices using ETS plug-in.
  • Replacement of an individual, defective DALI device is possible during operation without ETS.

Operation of emergency lighting

  • Suitable for operation in emergency lighting systems.
  • Control and monitoring of individual-battery and centrally-supplied DALI emergency lighting systems.
  • Support for DALI emergency light converters in accordance with EN 62386-202 (individual battery-operated emergency lights with DALI interface): Function test, continuous operation test, limited continuous operation test, query of the battery charge.
