Can the RAPIX system interface to other control systems?
Yes. There are a variety of means of interfacing between a RAPIX lighting system and other systems.
A native interface, secured and encrypted, is available for full feature and function integration.
Other interfaces are constantly being added. All connectivity is configured using the RAPIX Integrator software.
Can the RAPIX lighting system have properties that change based on the building usage?
Yes. Xi Operating Properties and Flags can be used to change most aspects of system behaviour based on time of day or occupancy.
Xi Operating Properties and Flags are part of the inherent behaviour RAPIX system Application Controllers. The settings, use, and behaviour of Xi Operating Properties and Flags are all configured using RAPIX Integrator.
Can DALI lighting be controlled from a different DALI Line?
Using a RAPIX Zone Controller, and by definition in RAPIX Integrator, a Zone can be created. A Zone is a collection of DALI short addresses, groups, or the broadcast.
A Zone can span multiple DALI Lines and can be controlled easily from anywhere in the site.
Can DALI devices from other manufacturers be used with RAPIX?
Yes. Any DALI compliant Control Gear can be used with the RAPIX lighting control system.
Control Devices, used to control a DALI Short Address or Group, can also be used with RAPIX to control Zones and Scenes using “linking rules”.
Can the RAPIX lighting system be used with DALI Type 8 devices (colour control)?
Yes. RAPIX Integrator can be used to configure colour scenes.
Can I customise system behaviour?
Yes. Complex system behaviour is available through the use of “templates”.
Templates have multiple options to allow precise selection of the system behaviour.
Ozuno can quickly and easily create customised templates to meet most unique project requirements.
How can RAPIX Integrator view live DALI line data without scanning DALI lines?
Zone Controllers are constantly monitoring all connected DALI devices and are keeping the model of their state in memory.
When RAPIX Integrator connects to Zone Controllers, it obtains the DALI line model data from them, eliminating the need to scan DALI lines.
Can RAPIX Integrator log all the DALI lines in the project?
Yes, it is possible to select multiple or all DALI lines in the project.
RAPIX Integrator can log DALI line traffic it receives simultaneously from all the selected DALI lines.
Is it possible to create a schedule that runs one hour after sunrise or half-hour before sunset?
Yes, RAPIX Integrator allows selecting a geographical location that is then used by Zone Controllers to accurately calculate the sunrise/sunset times every day of the year.
Schedule operations allow using these variable times with offsets.
Is it possible to add new parts of the project by “copying and pasting” the already configured building areas or floors?
Yes, this can be achieved by exporting the project to Excel. After modifications, the update can be imported back to allow easy duplication, modification, or scaling up of definition.
This approach allows several people to easily work on project updates, and can dramatically reduce data entry time.
