General features

MDALI-1s module is a component of the Ampio Smart Home system and is used for integration with lighting having a built-in Dali interface.

Dali is the main lighting used in industrial halls, large-format supermarkets and currently with development automation systems, also in residential buildings. On the market there is a very large selection of different types of lighting that having a built-in Dali interface.
Those are fixtures for various types of light sources such as incandescent or fluorescent lamps, modern LED and RGB lighting. The standard allows connection to one bus circuit up to 64 lamps, each of them can be independently controlled, set to different brightness level.

Dali devices communicate via a two-wire bus, devices are connected to bus in parallel. For each lamp it have to be Dali bus and light source power cables connected. The module has a current source, so buying of dedicated DALI power supply is not necessary – a simple power supply is enough.

The MDALI-1s interface has all the functionalities that allow to control such lighting by the Ampio system.

Module is controlled via CAN-Bus. Required voltage to power the module is 11-16V DC.
The device is equipped with RS485 connector, CAN bus connector, and two LED indicators, green and red.

The green LED indicates the status of CAN communication:

  • one regular flash every 1 sec. – CAN-Bus communication in order
  • two regular flashes every 1 sec. – module is not receiving information from other SmartHome modules
  • three regular flashes every 1 sec. – module cannot send information to CAN-Bus

Programming

Programming of the module is carried out using a special programmer available for authorized installers and the Ampio SmartHome CAN configurator program. Thanks to this, it is possible to assign addresses to each ending and change their numbering and setting parameters specific to each from luminaires and their grouping.
