When control of a room or specific area is needed, but no grouping of lights is required, then a very simple system can provide the required control. Various options of DALI broadcast controllers can control from 1 to 100 drivers on a single DALI line/universe. This allows ‘group’ control via a rotary switch, push button, scene control, or similar.
With DALI Broadcast Control, as no individual addressing is possible, no on-site commissioning is needed. Additionally if a driver needs replacing at a later date, again, no programming/commissioning will be necessary. It is a straight forward hardware replacement.
