  • DIN rail mounted
  • DALI line communication LED indicators for each line
  • Ethernet communication LED indicator
  • Powered by external 5-12 V dc supply (DIN mount universal voltage power supply DGLMPS12DC/1-0 is available as an order item)
  • SYSTEM OR SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS: A software development kit is available. This device can be custom-branded for your application

The RAPIX DALI-2 Ethernet Interface can be used as part of the RAPIX Lighting Control System which uses the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI-2) open standard protocol for lighting.

This product provides an isolated communication path between Ethernet and DALI. Control and monitoring of DALI-2 enabled luminaires and emergency lighting devices can be performed by an Ethernet-connected device.

The RAPIX DALI-2 Ethernet Interface can also be used to extend the number of DALI lines used by the RAPIX DALI-2 Zone Controller. A Zone Controller can operate with up to two Ethernet Interfaces, allowing a single Zone Controller to be expanded from 4 DALI lines to a maximum of 8 DALI lines.

When used in conjunction with the PC-based RAPIX Emergency software, DALI-1 and DALI-2 emergency lighting devices can be monitored on a schedule with automatic generation of test and maintenance reports.

This device is also suitable for Ethernet product developers who want an electrically safe interface to DALI with a rich protocol on the Ethernet side. A full protocol document and software development kit is available on request.
