Product code: Rail-DMX-DALI Category: Tags: , , , , , ,


Rail-DMX-DALI converts DMX values into DALI commands to allow integration between a DMX controller and DALI ballasts. (For conversion of DALI into DMX, please see the sister product, Rail-DALI-DMX).

Please note that Rail-DMX-DALI  supports DALI DT0 (intensity). If you require DT8 (colour), please see the new product DMXtoDALI quad.

Up to four DALI circuits can be controlled via DMX allowing up to 256 ballasts to be connected. Simultaneous control over DALI channels, groups and scenes enables users to overcome the speed differences between DMX and DALI, allowing control of multiple ballasts with a single command. In addition the channels and groups can be selected to broadcast mode on each of the four outputs.

For any configuration, a conversion of the ‘dimming curve’ can take place. DALI uses an exponential type curve while DMX uses a linear curve. If there are two types of dimmers a conversion will be needed to match the fade profiles.

This product requires a 9V to 24V PSU. We recommend the PSU-24-2-FER – see PSU. The DALI circuit requires a DALI Bus PSU. An example of this is Rail-PSU-D4.
