Environmental Systems, Inc. (ESI), upgrades Panel Shop lighting to Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI®) lighting.
ESI has just completed a lighting control update of our Panel Shop and mechanical/warehouse space. We now have thirty-one DALI devices that are divided in four different groups.
elitedali enables networks of DALI light fixtures to be directly connected to Niagara AX platforms and enable Niagara to be the only commissioning tool and controls required. DALI is a network based lighting standard that consists of electrical ballasts, occupancy sensors, and other lighting devices. Multiple major lighting companies have incorporated the DALI standard as an option for their fixtures. This option presents a good option for new construction or retrofit applications because of the hardiness and flexibility of the standard. The network wiring topology is flexible and simple to run and the DALI protocol provides for reliable communications, even in the presence of electrical noise.
