Frequently Asked Questions
Does RAPIX Emergency work with any DALI Emergency lamp drivers?
If the Emergency Lamp Driver is marked with the DALI logo, then RAPIX Emergency should work fine.
Some Emergency Lamp Drivers are listed as DALI compatible, and these may have limitations or aspects of behaviour that do not comply with the DALI standard.
RAPIX Emergency has been developed using older fluorescent emergency lamp drivers, as well as modern LED emergency lamp drivers, including many DALI compatible drivers. It includes work-arounds for the frequent firmware defects in emergency lamp drivers, so it is highly likely to work. Nevertheless we recommend using DALI compliant drivers, as listed on the web site of the the Digital Illumination Industry Alliance (DiiA).
What do I need to run RAPIX Emergency?
A PC that running MS Windows 8.1 or higher, with ethernet networking capabilities.
RAPIX Emergency will run fine on Windows Server versions, and can by used in virtual machines.
For building facilities managers, we recommend running RAPIX Emergency in a virtual machine alongside other building services.
For detailed requirements, see HERE.
How do I interface the software to a DALI line?
A RAPIX Zone Controller allows connectivity to up to 4 DALI lines, and is ideal when the Zone Controller is used for other functions. For more DALI lines, add more Zone Controllers.
A simple method, more suited to mixed installations where DALI is connected to another fieldbus gateway (KNX, Dynalite, C-Bus, etc) is the RAPIX Ethernet Interface. Each RAPIX Ethernet Interface allows connection to up to 2 DALI lines.
In both cases, ethernet is used to link the interface device to the computer running the RAPIX Emergency software.
What about access control? I don’t want the setup changed!
RAPIX Emergency includes access control so that after setup, only manual tests can be activated and the results can be checked.
I lost the passwords for the access control! Help!
There are no “back doors” or master passwords.
