DALI and wireless in focus for DiiA standardization experts
The different opportunities to combine wireless communication links with DALI lighting control are now being formally investigated by DiiA. Our Technical & Certification Work Group (T&C WG) has formed two new subgroups to investigate different options for combining wireless with DALI. DiiA expects that the subgroups will work in cooperation with the appropriate partner organizations.
At this stage, DiiA has not decided which option(s) or which protocol(s) will be supported in DALI-2.
The “Wireless Gateway” subgroup is discussing specifications for standardized application gateways between DALI-2 and existing wireless protocols such as Bluetooth mesh or Zigbee.
Meanwhile, the “Part 104 Wireless” subgroup is discussing the implementation of DALI-2 over different wireless carriers, in line with Part 104 of the DALI standard IEC 62386. This specification, which is not included in DALI-2 certification at present, uses the underlying wireless carrier to transport the DALI commands, and translation is not required.
DiiA Regular members are invited to participate in all T&C WG activities, including the new Wireless subgroups.
