Dali Gateway Plus with Manual Control

Product code: 2180 00
The DALI Gateway forms the interface between a KNX installation and a digital DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) lighting system. The DALI Gateway allows the switching and dimming of a maximum of 64 lights with a DALI operating device (e.g. electronic ballast). Up to 6 different addressing types of the DALI Gateway allow group-orientated and individually- address control of DALI lights via KNX telegrams.
Price (Excluding VAT)


  • Control of max. 64 DALI operating devices as individual control, group control in max. 32 groups, or central control via a broadcast telegram.
  • Manual operation of the devices also independent of the bus (also building site operation with broadcast control).
  • Energy-saving function: Switch-off of the power supply of the DALI operating devices possible in a switched-off state (via additional KNX switching actuator).
  • 16 light scenes.
  • The groups can be integrated in the light scenes.
  • Effect control can be configured for max. 16 sequences in 1 to 500 run-throughs (or infinite).
  • Feedback of DALI error status or short circuit and signalling of power supply failure.
  • Active or passive (object can be read out) cyclical feedback function.
  • Group feedback of all switching conditions possible.
  • Feedback can be delayed until after the recovery of bus voltage.
  • Switching and brightness value: Active (send to the bus in case of change or cyclically) or passive (object can be read out) feedback functions.
  • Brightness range can be set.
  • Bulb-saving switch-on and switch-off
  • Dimming behaviour can be parameterised.
  • Time functions (switch-on delay, switch-off delay, expanded staircase function ‰ advance warning function in accordance with DIN 18015-2 or reduced continuous lighting).
  • Block function or alternatively forced setting function can be parameterised for each group. With block function, the flashing of light groups is possible.
  • Reading the DALI device state out via KNX.
  • Elapsed-hours meter as forward and backward counter with limit value evaluation.
  • Online or offline configuration of the DALI devices using ETS plug-in.
  • Replacement of an individual defective DALI device is possible during operation without ETS.
  • Suitable for operation in emergency lighting systems.
  • Control and monitoring of individual-battery and centrally- supplied DALI emergency lighting systems.
  • Support of DALI emergency light converters in accordance with EN 62386-202 (individual battery-operated emergency lights with DALI interface): Function test, continuous operation test, limited continuous operation test, query of the battery charge
