uPowerTek begun converting its existing DALI LED driver portfolio to DALI-2 from August 26, 2019, and more products will follow. The new driver with DALI-2 certification brings the promise of significantly improved multi-vendor interoperability as well as functionality compared with DALI-1.
The DALI-2 standard, the latest version of the IEC 62386 standard for DALI technology, is administered by the Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) which certifies that products that carry the DALI-2 logo are compliant with the standard’s protocols.
The DALI-2 certification program was launched on August 28, 2017 as a result of the dedicated and ongoing collaborative effort by DiiA member companies.
DALI-2 certification, which allows the product to carry the DALI-2 logo, indicates compliance with the relevant parts of version 2 of IEC 62386, the international DALI standard.
While DALI-1 revolutionized options for regulating artificial lighting, DALI-2 is helping fill the gaps in the original standard. Not only does it allow for more interoperability with other wireless protocols such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Zigbee, it also adds a host of new functions previously unavailable. Additional benefits include:
- More energy efficient lighting
- Easier customization
- Reduced installation costs
