31 Oct New gateway for DALI® lighting
AVEbus system can communicate with DALI® and DMX-II or DMX512 lighting bus. This is possible thanks to the new 4-modules 53AB-LIGHT home automation interface, that is designed to perform the function of a gateway between the AVEbus system and the above-mentioned lighting bus.
The 53AB-LIGHT device allows the switching on/off and adjustment of DALI® and DMX-II or DMX512 lighting fixture via AVEbus devices. In fact, the 53AB-LIGHT device is able to bi-directionally convert some choosable information that transit on the home automation AVEbus (coming from the supervisors or command devices) and retransmit them on the lighting bus.
The default operating mode (DALI or DMX) is defined by the placement of a supplied hardware jumper. Furthermore, it’s possible to force a specific mode – regardless of hardware jumper’s position – by modifying the programming. This device also acts as a configuration interface for the main DALI® lighting bus parameters, allowing the user to exploit the same software application both to configure AVEbus devices and to configure addresses, groups and scenes of the DALI® lighting bus.
The new 53AB-LIGHT gateway complete DOMINA plus range, confirming AVE’s aptitude to interpret at the best the evolving needs of home automation market.
