Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>

DALI Newsletter January 2019

Welcome to the January 2019 edition of the DALI Newsletter from DiiA. Together with Zhaga, we have just issued a press release announcing our joint certification program for a smart luminaire interface. We have also updated our DALI-2 certification timeline, and we are looking for a new General Manager. 

PRESS RELEASE: Zhaga & DiiA agree joint certification program for a smart luminaire interface

The Zhaga Consortium and DiiA are developing a joint certification program for interoperable luminaires and components, which enables intelligent, future-proof LED luminaires with IoT connectivity.

The certification program will be based on complementary specifications from Zhaga and DiiA, which together define the smart luminaire interface. This interface simplifies the addition of communication/sensor nodes to LED luminaires with plug-and play interoperability.

Initially the focus is on outdoor lighting, but indoor solutions will also be developed.

DALI-2 certification timeline updated

DiiA has updated its Timeline for DALI-2 certification. DiiA’s Technical & Certification Work Group (T&C WG) develops DALI-2 test specifications for different product types and features, allowing manufacturers to achieve DALI-2 certification.

The T&C WG is currently evaluating beta versions of the DALI-2 test-sequence software required to test a variety of input devices (Parts 301-304). DiiA plans to release the test-sequence software to members in Q1 of 2019 (subject to change).

Meanwhile, the DALI-2 test-sequence software for Part 209, colour type Tc, is also in development by the T&C WG, with release planned for Q2 (subject to change).

DiiA is also developing test specifications for the new Parts 25x covering data storage/reporting and power-supply requirements.
