The KNX DALI gateway connects KNX to the DALI bus. The gateway is a category I control device with an integrated DALI power supply for the ECGs (electronic ballasts / electronic control gear). The device is a Single-Master Controller according to EN 62386 ed/1 and ed/2.
It is able to control DALI ECGs ed/1 and ed/2 -also mixed- but according to single-master controller it cannot support DALI-2 sensors like movement- and presence detectors, switches etc.
Described features are related to Firmware V3.1.3 or higher with DCA and ETS application 7310 most earlier delivered devices can be upgraded
It supports the switching and dimming of up to 64 ECGs in 16 groups and the control up to 16 scenes. The 64 ECGs can be controlled individually or in groups. Error messages of individual
ECGs or each connected lamp can be transmitted to the KNX and visualised.
DALI commissioning and configuration, as well as group assignment and scene setting, can be carried out using:
■ the device (display and operating buttons which can be optionally disabled),
■ the DCA software,
■ the integrated Web server
Web server functions:
Access via the LAN network using a PC, PDA or web panel. Commissioning is also made easier using a WLAN adapter. The internal web pages can be used to start up the device, and to configure, operate and display all important functions.
■Two separate user profiles with their own password for IP-webserver
■Effect module with 16 effects and a total of up to 500 commands
■Configuring: scenes, effects, service, maintenance, burn-in, operating hours
■Fast Firmware upgrade possible via IP portOperating: device, ECGs, groups and broadcast
■Colour control via KNX for broadcast and groups
■Displays: Status and error messages
■DT8-Colour control on the DALI side, up to 16 colour templates with up to 300 commands basing on a weekly timer
■DALI-scenes with brightness and colour values
■Scene number 1-64 can be flexible distributed over several devices
■Tunable white control to improve the environment for human beings. Colour control i.e. product presentation, advertising
■Possibility to lock the IP-port
■Possibility to access as User or Admin the web server
■Flexible post installation and a DCA with im- and export for DALI configuration
■Possibility to save ECG StandBy energy of DALI groups if switched OFF
With integrated bus coupler. For installation on DIN rails TH35 according to EN 60715. The bus is connected using a bus connecting terminal; a data rail is not necessary.
KNX software functions: Switching, dimming and value object per group or ECG. Staircase timer function, status objects, delays between status feedbacks. Detailed error messages per EB and group. Test of DALI ECGs for emergency lighting with central battery or built-in battery with selectable test intervals with old or new format. Parallel broadcast triggering of all ECGs, switch-on/switch-off and colour control. Dimming speeds for relative dimming and dimming values. Dimming value max./min. Various modes (normal, permanent, night, panic). Operating hours counter and automatic burn-in per ECG.
