GlacialLight Introduces DALI Interface Converter With PWM and DC Output

GlacialLight, a division of the Taiwanese technology manufacturer GlacialTech Inc., is introducing the GL-DA02 DALI interface converter to its product lineup. The GL-DA02 converts international DALI standard to a full range of analog dimming signals for flexible and precise indoor lighting control.

Features:
•    Compliance with DALI standard (IEC62386 Part 102 & Part 206)
•    DALI signal is polarity insensitive
•    Screw-less connector, easy to install
•    Selectable dimming output : PWM-10V / DC 0-10V / DC 1-10V
•    Selectable dimming curve: logarithm or linear
•    Build-in Relay to turn ON/OFF driver completely
•    3 year warranty

As an open standard, DALI is internally recognized as the premier new lighting control interface and is cross-compatible across lighting components from different manufacturers. Highly scalable, it simplifies wiring compared to conventional lighting control systems, making installation easier and reducing maintenance costs. DALI can not only control lighting but also monitor it, allowing for intelligent lighting systems that maximize service life and save energy. Compared to legacy solutions, a DALI network is more precise and allows fine grain control over the individual components in a complete lighting system.

GlacialLight’s DALI Interface Convertor is fully IEC62386 (102, 206) compliant. Taking a digital DALI signal, it can output either PWM, 0-10V DC, or 1-10V DC signals and is suitable for controlling 3-in-1 (DC/PWM/Resistor) LED drivers. Dimming can be set on a linear or logarithmic curve. With a built-in relay, devices down the line can be turned off completely, giving complete lighting control and reducing energy costs.

As an indoor digital lighting control system, the GL-DA02 convertor is well suited for applications including office buildings, conference rooms, factories, and intelligent home lighting.
