Response DALI Gateway

Today ETC announced the addition of the DALI Gateway—that  accepts DMX input and outputs DALI protocol—into the company’s line of Response™ products. The DIN-rail-mountable Response DALI Gateway delivers a single loop of DALI control for up to 64 devices and 16 groups. 

ETC Networking and Architectural Controls Product Manager Lowell Olcott explains: “This product allows for the control of DALI Devices to be added to all of ETC’s lighting systems, making the product a great option for retrofits and new installations alike.” Users have complete control over their entire system with a patchable output map, allowing for the assignment of individual DMX addresses to each DALI device. 

The Gateway supports auto-replace, allowing failed DALI devices to be replaced without the need for configuration tools. The DALI Gateway uses special calculations for individual, group, or broadcast DALI commands, to optimize fade performance and ensure dimming quality.
