Flexible colour control in KNX building automation with KNX and DALI-2 Device Type 8

With the DALI-2 certified DM 4 DALI KNX actuator, up to 30 DALI operating devices per channel can be easily controlled via broadcast commands. Broadcast communication requires no DALI addressing or grouping and greatly simplifies start-up and maintenance.

The highlight: the 4-channel actuator also supports the control of colour and colour temperature of devices according to DALI Device Type 8 (DT8) in a KNX building automation system. Of course, optimally protected by KNX Data Secure.
For example, the working atmosphere in offices and conference rooms can be made more comfortable by using colder or warmer light. Also, creative accent lighting is possible, e.g. in hotels, lounges, exhibition rooms or outdoor areas. By using LED strips, you gain maximum flexibility in the colour and colour temperature design of individual lighting concepts.
