DALI official AU NZ standard v2 470x195 - DALI-2 Document LibraryIn November 2020 DALI-2 was adopted as the first (and at time of writing the only) Australian/New Zealand lighting control standard AS/NZS 62386.

With the adoption of this new building standard, compliant systems will no longer have a proprietary lighting control wired bus, or proprietary wireless protocols. The DALI-2 standard defines an open DALI-2 bus, and DALI-2 wireless protocol where certified DALI-2 multi-vendor sensors and switches can communicate to a control system in both a wired and wireless manner.

The new standard covers the following categories:

  • Lighting Drivers – AS/NZS 62386-101
  • Circadian Rhythm – AS/NZS 62386-209
  • Switches – AS/NZS 62386-301/302
  • Sensors – AS/NZS 62386-303/304
  • Wireless – AS/NZS 62386-104
  • Emergency – AS/NZS 62386-202

The New Zealand standards can be downloaded from here. Use 62386 as the search term and each standard appears in the list produced.

To comply with the new standards industry professionals will need to update their knowledge around DALI-2 and what is required to update lighting control specifications to ensure they comply with the new lighting control standards.
