DiiA Holds DALI-2 Seminar at Lightfair International

Speakers representing DiiA, ANSI and Georgia Power will offer an in-depth look at the digital DALI-2 protocol, and will also describe standardization of intra-luminaire DALI and implementation in one of the world's largest outdoor lighting networks.

The Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) will present a 90-minute seminar at Lightfair International tradeshow entitled; "DALI-2: The global standard for smart, digital, lighting control in the IoT era."

The seminar is scheduled for 10:30-12:00 on Wednesday May 22, and takes places in the LFI Live Lounge (Booth # 5455, Hall F).  

DALI is a worldwide, standardized, digital lighting-control protocol, and DALI-2 is the latest version. The first part of the seminar will focus on the benefits of DALI, including a comparison with other approaches, and the new features offered by DALI-2. Scott Wade and Ronald Tol of DiiA will describe the DALI-2 certification program, its impact on interoperability, and its expansion to cover all product types, including controllers and input devices such as sensors. There will be time at the end of this section for questions.

The second part of the seminar will focus on intra-luminaire DALI. Mike O'Boyle will discuss ANSI's standardization work related to intra-luminaire DALI, which builds on specifications recently published by DiiA. Kevin Fitzmaurice will describe Georgia Power's extensive LED street-lighting project, explaining the benefits offered by intra-luminaire DALI in relation to inventory management, power-usage monitoring and maintenance. This section will end with a short panel discussion, and speakers will take questions from the audience.

Lightfair takes place on May 21–23, 2019, in Philadelphia, PA, USA. DiiA will exhibit at Booth # 5921, Hall F, and DiiA staff and technical experts will be on hand during the show to answer your questions. Please contact us if you would like to set up a meeting.
