DALI Newsletter June 2019

Welcome to the June 2019 edition of the DALI Newsletter from DiiA. This month, a key milestone was reached in the DALI-2 certification program with the addition of sensors and other input devices. Also, DiiA attended two major tradeshows - Lightfair and GILE - and our seminar presentations are available for download. Looking ahead, the program for the one-day DALI Summit is taking shape.

PRESS RELEASE: DALI-2 certification of sensors and input devices is now underway

DiiA has introduced DALI-2 certification for a range of products including light sensors, occupancy sensors, push-buttons, switches and sliders. These products, known as DALI-2 input devices, provide user-derived and environmental information to the lighting-control system.

“This is a significant milestone for DALI-2,” said Paul Drosihn, DiiA General Manager. “Now, all the main components of a lighting-control system can be DALI-2 certified.”

Joint Zhaga-D4i certification program

DiiA and the Zhaga Consortium have unveiled their joint Zhaga-D4i certification program, indicating plug-and-play interoperability of luminaires, sensors and communication nodes.

Combining the expertise in the two organizations, the Zhaga-D4i certification program will enable smart, future-proof LED luminaires with IoT connectivity. Initially, the focus is on outdoor lighting, but indoor solutions are also in development.

Lightfair seminar - materials available  

DiiA hosted a seminar at Lightfair, starting with an update on the DALI-2 certification program, its impact on interoperability, and its expansion to cover all product types including input devices. 

Mike O’Boyle of Signify discussed ANSI’s standardization work (in ANSI C137.4 Working Group) related to intra-luminaire DALI, which builds on the D4i specifications from DiiA.

Kevin Fitzmaurice described Georgia Power’s very large street-lighting project and how DALI is the lighting protocol of choice for outdoor lighting.

New DALI version-1 registrations of LED drivers to stop

DiiA has set an end date for new DALI version-1 registrations of LED drivers. The last date that submissions will be accepted is December 31, 2019.

DALI-2 certification will continue to be available for LED drivers. DALI-2 tests for LED drivers (Part 207) have been available since August 2017, giving manufacturers a wide time window to migrate to DALI-2.

For products that are already DALI-version-1 registered, DALI Trademark use will still be permitted after December 31, 2019.

DALI version-1 registration will continue to be available for control gear types other than LED drivers.
