Efficient lighting intelligence with DALI-2 stand-alone, BMS and KNX

Intelligent lighting control using DALI-2 technology

DALI-2 solutions from Theben are valued by discerning customers for their outstanding detection quality, sophisticated functions and exceptionally simple start-up and programming. When combined with intelligent lighting management via DALI-2, they really come into their own. In this way, they create efficient, flexible and future-proof lighting management, which can be seamlessly integrated into building automation systems.


The lighting control dream team - Presence detectors and DALI-2

Theben offers you a wide range of DALI-2 presence detectors and presence sensors for nearly any need. DALI-2 broadcast presence detectors provide high-quality standard solutions with simple start-up, a lighting group with constant lighting control and orientation light. In addition, an external DALI-2 relay can be easily integrated, such as for HVAC applications.

Addressable DALI-2 presence detectors allow flexible assignment of up to three lighting groups on one DALI line with constant lighting control and orientation light. The devices offer 2- or 3-channel mixed light measurement. Moreover, the push buttons can be conveniently assigned to the individual lighting groups by remote control or push button.

The DALI-2 Room Solution allows you to implement individual, DALI-2 based lighting controls with HCL functionality, RGBW light and time-controlled functions. As simple as with broadcast detectors. All DALI-2 presence sensors can also be integrated into the DALI-2 Room Solution.

Theben DALI-2 presence sensors can be operated with any multi-master application controller that complies with IEC 62386 parts 101/104. This way, you can also connect your DALI-2 lighting management system to the higher-level control of a building management system.

A large selection of KNX/DALI gateways provides a bridge into the KNX world and thus further functionality, such as shading and climate control.
