Twin DALI Network DALI Router


The DDC910 router uses an ethernet connection (10/100Mbps) as a network backbone, to seamlessly combine DALI networks. Basic functionality is available 'out of the box' without any programming. System software allows for advanced configuration and function programming of the router.

The system provides energy saving features via presence detection and constant light functionality. Further automation can be achieved through scheduled events. OPC server software or Tridan drivers enable interfacing to Building Management Systems.

A PC can be connected to the system for diagnostics and logging purposes if required, but all data is stored within the system itself so there is no need for PC control in daily operation. The elimination of a central controller ensures no single point of failure can cause a total system shutdown.
