What is DALI – General overview
If you’ve spent a reasonable time researching LEDs, you’ve probably realised by now that there are several ways to dim them. One of the most popular is DALI, which stands for Digital Addressable Lighting Interface. It includes the control interface, lamp response and the power connection.
DALI is generally used to provide lighting control over many areas across several lighting circuits. There are as many as 254 levels of brightness. As well as dimming and on/off functions, it is possible to use pre-set modes to change lighting patterns at scheduled times of day.
A lighting system of this nature that allows for precise control from a central point tends to find its way into large commercial settings, but increasingly DALI is being used in residential settings for discerning homeowners seeking the best in home lighting control. It is both versatile and cost effective.
At Ultra LEDs we stock a range of DALI drivers available in both 12v and 24v. When combined with a DALI dimmer switch you can have total control over your lighting.
