Suitable control gear is available for just about every type of light source: Fluoro, LED, Emergency, LV and even incandescent? So why would you ever need to use a DALI Relay?
- Integrate existing non-dimmed light fittings in a refurbishment project;
- Control new non-DALI light fittings that the client ‘just has to have’;
- Banks or circuits of car park lighting;
- Circuits of exterior lighting;
- Path lighting;
- Exhaust fans in Bathrooms, Laundries and Meeting Rooms;
- Ceiling sweep fans;
- Fountain pumps;
- Non-dimmed chandeliers.
While DALI gives the potential to control to an individual light, sometimes all you need is a simple on/off command to a non-DALI load.
All of these can be incorporated into a building’s DALI Lighting Control System using a DALI Relay.
DALI Relays: Things to Consider
- What is the rating of the load? Check the rating of the DALI Relay is suitable for the type of load: Incandescent, LED, Fluro, Motor etc.
- One DALI Short Address in a DALI Relay channel allows control of a whole circuit of luminaires.
- Where are you going to mount the DALI Relay? Sometimes it’s more convenient and economical to locate it near to the load rather than back in the switchboard!
- Check the load type to try and determine the inrush current, and size the selected DALI relay and circuit breaker accordingly.
DALI relays aren’t a step backwards – they can be a leap forward in providing completely integrated DALI Lighting Control Systems.
