DALI (Digitally Addressable Lighting Interface) CANx gateway is a device specially designed for management and control of dimmable lights via CAN FT bus. In a typical application, a DALI-bus consists of one gateway (master), and multiple slaves. In DALI-bus segment a master can control up to 64 individually addressable slaves who are also called (digital addressable) ballasts. The DALI standard enables compiling these slaves into: 16 light scenes (incl. dimming values and transitional periods) and 16 lighting groups (multiple assignments of the devices are possible). The configuration and monitoring of the device is done through LogicMachine CANx and separate DALI commissioning application.
