Zusätzliche Override Funktion. Einfache Inbetriebnahme des Interfaces durch Crestron Software. Format 9 TE. Stromversorgung des Modules über PoE oder Cresnet.

The DIN-DALI-2 is a DALI interface for Crestron systems providing control of up to 2 individual DALI loops. Housed in a DIN-rail enclosure, the DIN-DALI-2 is a great low-profile Cresnet® or Ethernet companion to the DIN-AP2 processor, or any 2-Series control system. In addition to controlling the DALI data bus, it includes an integrated DALI power supply. The single-wire connectivity simplifies both new and retrofit installations, and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) versatility assists in situations with existing CAT5 infrastructure.

This product is only available as part of a complete engineered and commissioned Crestron Green Light® system. Contact Sales Support Services to obtain a quote for Factory Engineering Services and On-Site Commissioning.

2 DALI Channels
The dual-channel DALI outputs on the DIN-DALI-2 makes controlling up to 128 individual DALI ballasts simple. The Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) is a protocol used for the control of lighting in buildings, and is found on ballasts available from many manufacturers. Because it offers ballast-level control, lighting loads powered from the same feed can be controlled individually. DALI is a great choice for retrofit lighting systems because it does not require changes in line voltage wiring. Likewise, DALI provides ultimate flexibility by allowing reconfiguring of zones after a system is installed.

Integrated DALI Power Supply
The innovative design of the DIN-DALI-2 eliminates the need for the external power supplies required by other DALI controllers on the market. Power is delivered via PoE or Cresnet, creating a true single-wire installation. Both Cresnet and PoE are capable of powering all 128 DALI ballast controllers. If desired, an external power supply may be used in conjunction with the DIN-DALI-2; an on-board switch allows the installer to choose the required mode during setup.

Commissioning Tool
Designed specifically for the DIN-DALI-2, the Crestron DALI commissioning software tool simplifies and expedites system setup. The intuitive menu-driven wizard provides step-by-step configuration of ballast properties, groups, and scenes. Guided by the software, simply set the ballast address and check connectivity status, edit minimum/maximum levels and fade time, and change ballast groupings and scenes. This powerful software makes ballast replacement straightforward through automatic identification of new hardware IDs. Settings from old ballasts are transferred to replacements with just a few mouse clicks, saving time and eliminating guess work and frustration.

Familiar Programming Interface
Controlling a DALI ballast is just like controlling any Crestron dimmer. Familiar visual Crestron configuration tools, as found in D3 Pro™ and SIMPL™ Windows, replace complex hardware addressing and communication protocols. Crestron D3 Pro software eliminates the need for custom programming, providing a complete design, development, and documentation solution for the lighting professional.

Override Input
An override input is provided to allow an external contact closure to momentarily override the control system program and force each ballast into its defined "System Failure Level." States can be set and saved locally from the front panel, or remotely via software.

DIN Rail Installation
The DIN-DALI-2 is designed to snap onto a standard DIN rail for installation in a wall mount enclosure. Wiring connections are made using screw terminals positioned along the top and bottom, clearly accessible from the front for easy installation and servicing. All setup controls and indicators are positioned on the center front panel. When installed in an enclosure utilizing 45 mm cutouts, the DIN-DALI-2's front panel stays accessible while the connections are concealed.

Cresnet® and PoE
The DIN-DALI-2 communicates with a DIN-AP2 2-Series Automation Processor, or other Crestron 2-Series control system, via the Cresnet control network or Power-over-Ethernet (PoE). A pair of Cresnet ports is provided on the DIN-DALI-2 allowing for easy daisy-chaining of several DIN Rail Series automation control modules. A standard Ethernet jack accommodates data and power to be delivered to the unit over one CAT5 cable.
