D4i brings standardization to intra-luminaire DALI

DiiA has unveiled its new D4i logo and certification program for intra-luminaire DALI. D4i extends the existing DALI-2 certification program with additional features and functions, creating new possibilities for DALI in the IoT world.

Expected to launch in the third quarter of 2019, D4i certification will be available for DALI-2 products that have a specific set of features required for intra-luminaire DALI. These features relate to power, diagnostics and energy metering.
