Research & development starts for a family of DALI products including interfaces, LED lamp drivers and Emergency lighting drivers.
ProbitLab tester acquired to allow in-house testing for compliance with DALI standards.
First release DALI products for Emergency Lighting monitoring:
First family of DALI LED downlight drivers released.
The famous Red Box and RAPIX Addressing software allow the fastest possible address assignment processes for a DALI line.
Continuous improvements an updates since that release mean this is still be best and fastest way to assign DALI and DALI-2 short addresses.
DALI Emergency LED Drivers released to suit NiMH and NiCd batteries.
Updates followed in 2014 for Lithium Batteries
Standalone electronic phase dimmer for in-wall use, especially designed for LED loads.
Gone on to become the largest selling standalone phase dimmer in Australia.
Ultra-robust DALI Relays in 1 and 2 Channel versions. 10AX rated and 500A inrush, suitable for DIN rail or field mount and with easy wiring termination.
With limited current available on a DALI line, switches and sensors can present challenges. The eHub allows switches, sensors, touchscreens and ethernet based A/V systems to control DALI lines.
Zone Controller released to solve the scaling up problem of DALI. Adds ability to create Zones comprising DALI Short Addresses and Groups located on any line, and with limitless scaling up - just add more Zone Controllers to handle more DALI lines.
Continuous improvement with regular new capabilities and software updates ever since.
Initial release of DALI Emergency Conversion drivers - allow an existing LED luminaire to be adapted for Emergency operation.
Invented and released Multimate technology - a revolutionary new standalone electronic phase dimmer for in-wall use, especially designed for LED loads.
Multimate dimmers, switches, timers and sensors are wired in parallel using existing mains wiring and allow dimming, switching and movement sense control with no control system, no extra remote wiring, no power line signalling and no radio.
DALI Adaptive Phase Dimmer, specially optimised for LED phase dimmable loads.
Sitara - a wireless system with internet gateway and interoperability with Multimate multi-way dimmers and switches - allowing app based lighting control including phase control loads.
Ozuno is formed from a management buy-out of the Gerard Lighting R&D Group, with an initial international sales focus.
RAPIX DALI Presence and Light Level sensor with separate switch input. Capable of operating as a standalone controller and also as part of a larger RAPIX DALI system.
Emergency LED Driver running from a single lithium cell for lowest cost solution of driver and battery.
Up to 6 switches can be used to for DALI control. Switches can be selected as momentary, toggle, or a relay contact of a voltage-free occupancy/presence sensor.
ProbitLab2 tester acquired to allow in-house testing for compliance with DALI-2 standards.
Rapidly followed by DALI-2 compliance for a number of existing products.
Severe electronic component shortages begin to bite for all electronic parts, from all suppliers, world-wide.
Lead times reach one year for typical factory product orders, electronic components and for new product developments.
Car makers can't ship cars, medical devices get priority on components.
This continues through to at least mid 2023.
Ozuno purchases the Australian and New Zealand market access rights for all of the RAPIX and DALI technology, and acquires all related inventory from Gerard Lighting.
Technical Support of this range switches to Ozuno.
DALI-2 Low Power Voltage Free Relay - suitable for 1A load switching, ac or dc (with no de-rating), with inrush management and all based on an innovative semiconductor switching technology.
DALI-2 DIN rail mounted relays in 1 and 2 channel versions, with 12AX current rating and 500A per channel inrush rating.
Master and Slave modular wall switches in two push styles and one rotary style.
