DALI is the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface. It enables easy and intelligent management of lighting equipment. 


DALI is described as a protocol for communications and control of lighting equipment. This includes Control Gear (not just ballasts but also LED drivers, switching devices, emergency inverters, colour control and so on) and Control Devices (buttons, rotaries and sliders, presence detectors, light sensors…) as well as the requirements for bus power supplies, which may be standalone devices or integrated with Control Gear or Control Devices.

In principle, a DALI lighting system can have components from many different suppliers, all working from the same standard. 


With the right choice of individual DALI components an extremely wide range of requirements can be met, from operating the lighting system from a simple light switch to lighting management systems for entire office complexes with thousands of light sources.

The new standardisation means that there are no longer any restrictions on the application of this technology. Any light source, including incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, high-intensity discharge lamps as well as LEDs, can be controlled irrespective of whether they are installed in an office, a restaurant or a street light.
