DALI

Energy-efficient lighting control

Our DALI products

Our DALI products work with so-called dynamic lighting control, where lighting during presence goes up to a high light level and after a preset delay, without presence, dims down to a lower light level. After further time, the lighting is turned off completely.

You can connect various detectors to the same DALI bus as the units are able to work together to control the lighting. There are also variations where the lighting is never turned off, but only goes between a high and low light level.

IR detector PD33 DL
  • Best. No: 13150 | E-No: 1306085
IR detector ceiling PDC33 DL
  • Best. No: 13149 | E-No: 1301229

Application areas

PD/PDC33 DL are passive infrared detectors that are intended for presence detection and control of lighting fixtures via a DALI bus. They have a pyroelectric sensor that reacts to changes in heat radiation. PD33 DL has interchangeable lenses for different types of applications. You can also adjust the angle of the detection area by adjusting the height of the card in the housing. These detectors have fewer features than PD/PDC35 DL and can be used in simpler DALI systems in conjunction with level selectors NP2T DL or NP3T DL.

Like PD/PDC35 DL, there is a mode bracket that allows you to control the lighting directly via "direct level" on the DALI bus, but with fixed light levels at 100% during presence, 10% at low level and 0% when turned off. If you choose "Extronic" mode, you control the lighting via scenes. We use scene 10 (presence), 14 (low level), 15 (off). You can use a computer to program the fixtures to those scenes and set the light levels you want.

Properties PD33 DL and PDC35 DL
  • The range with PD-33 DL is up to 40 x 40 meters with standard lens and up to 80 meters with lens 47.
  • The detection area with PDC-33 DL is about 7 m diameter when mounted at 2.4 m height.
  • PD-33 DL turns on, dims down and turns off DALI fixtures.
  • Broadcast or group addressing.
  • Control light level with direct control (100%, 10%, 0%) or selectable levels via scene 10,14,15.
  • Multiple detectors can cooperate if they control the same fixture group or if they control with Broadcast.
  • Adjustable presence delay 2s - 20 min.
  • Timer for low-level lighting before shut-off 5 min or 30 min.
  • Adaptation for office environment with different signal processing during presence.
  • "No start" Not automatic turn on via detector, manual turn on via button.
  • Power supplied via DALI bus (maximum consumption 12mA). Settings are made with knobs and brackets on the detector's circuit board.
  • On the PD-33/35 DL, the lens can be replaced for adjustment of the detection area. A variety of lenses are available.
IR detector PD35 DL
  • Best. No: 13148 | E-No: 1301147
IR detector ceiling PDC35 DL
  • Best. No: 13147 | E-No: 1301230

Application areas

PD/PDC35 DL are passive infrared detectors that are intended for presence detection and control of lighting fixtures via a DALI bus. They have a pyroelectric sensor that reacts to changes in heat radiation. PD35 DL has interchangeable lenses for different types of applications. You can also adjust the angle of the detection area by adjusting the height of the card in the housing. The detectors are well-suited for controlling lighting on the same DALI bus in different DALI groups. PD/PDC35 DL has a programming button for programming of DALI groups, light levels, and scenes. You can easily change the light levels via various potentiometers on the detector.

With the "mode bracket," you can choose to control the lighting directly via "direct level" on the DALI bus or "Extronic" which controls the lighting via scene 10 (presence), 14 (low level), 15 (off / constant background light). You can use PD/PDC35 DL or a DALI computer to program the fixtures to those scenes and set the light levels you want. With the help of two potentiometers, you can set the delay time between high/low level and low level/off. You can also start, for example, a fan during presence, via an built-in relay.

Properties PD35 DL och PDC35 DL

In addition to the features of PD33 DL and PDC33 DL:

  • Relay output for control of ventilation, for example
  • Can program scenes 10,14 and 15 and groups directly on the card with push button
  • Adjustable light levels directly on the card
  • Adjustable timer for low-level lighting before shut-off from 1 min to 2 hours.
Acoustic detector AD36 DL
  • Best. No: 13151 | E-No: 1306082

The AD-36 DL is a presence detector for energy-saving control of DALI fixtures. The detector listens to sounds within two different frequency ranges that are analyzed for detection of presence. The lighting is turned on by the inaudible "infrasound" with low frequencies 1-3 Hz (LF) that occur, for example, when a door is opened. The lighting is then kept on by higher sound frequencies 4-25 kHz (HF) from footsteps, speech, and other sounds that can confirm the presence. The main function is the automatic turn-on, dimming, and turn-off of the lighting during presence or an empty room.

The detector is pre-set for DALI-BROADCAST and DIRECT LEVEL, which provides quick and easy installation. With this setting, the detector controls all fixtures on the DALI loop to pre-programmed light levels. These functions can be changed to create lighting groups and other light levels.

Locations where AD-36 DL is suitable::

  • Stairwells
  • Changing rooms
  • Shower rooms
  • Angled corridors
  • Warehouse spaces
  • Garages, etc.
Acoustic detector AD36M DL
  • Best. No: 13152 | E-nr: 1301167

The acoustic detector AD-36 DL-M has a maximum range of 20-25 m radius depending on the room and interior design. It listens to infrasound (LF) and audible sound (HF) and is powered by a DALI driver via the DALI bus.

Level switches

NP2T DL and NP3T DL are so-called "Level Switches" which also power the DALI bus. NP-3T DL has all the functions that NP-2T DL has, with the big difference that it also has constant light control via the light sensor. The level selectors power the DALI bus with 200mA and control the lighting via Broadcast commands. You can easily set the desired light levels and fade times in the devices with potentiometers. The products are very suitable for installations where you do not want to program the lighting via computer, but still want to set specific light levels and fade times.

We have many application examples with NP2T DL. For example, you can get a constant basic light at certain times via a 22k ohm resistor between terminal 6-7 if you connect the resistor in series with a time channel.

NP-3T DL is preferably used when there are large windows with a lot of light incidence. The lighting level is then adjusted automatically to compensate for the lower level of incoming light, so that there is always a constant level of light in the room.
