Lighting Control Using A DALI Driver
DALI is a low voltage lighting protocol used to simplify control of multiple light fixtures through a single control system. A DALI Driver is a DALI compatible LED power supply requiring only a DALI input and mains feed to set up.
Low voltage LED lighting must be supplied with the correct voltage specified by the product. To control lighting using DALI, a dimmer would then be required to add it to the DALI network.
A DALI LED driver simplifies the install by being directly compatible, negating the need for a separate dimmer. By simply addressing and programming the driver it can be added to the DALI network for control.
Now a lighting industry standard, DALI systems are a simple and effective method for central lighting control. Shop our DALI LED driver range and find the right product to power your DALI install.
How A DALI Driver Works
A DALI driver is an LED power supply with built in DALI (digital addressable lighting interface) compatibility. The driver converts 240V mains electricity to the output voltage specified. When using low voltage products the power supplied must match the voltage of the lighting attached.
As a DALI power supply is directly compatible with the protocol it will accept a DALI input. This allows the DALI controller to communicate with the driver and send low voltage control signals. These control signals are then received by the driver which then alters its PWM output. This allows the driver to both dim and colour change low voltage lighting without the need for a separate dimmer.
DALI lighting systems are often a first choice for centralised lighting control in large scale installations.
