The KNX ABB i-bus® DALI Gateway
with Emergency Lighting Function
DGN/S 1.16.1 is a KNX modular
installation device (MDRC) in Pro Mdesign
for installation in the distribution
board on 35 mm mounting rails.
The DGN/S integrates operating devices
with DALI interfaces to EN 62386
into a KNX building installation.
The connection to the ABB i-bus® is
implemented via a KNX connection
terminal on the device shoulders.
The DALI output of the DGN/S can be
used to connect up to 64 DALI devices.
It can also exclusively contain 64 DALI
devices for self-contained emergency
lighting compliant to EN 6286-202.
Both “normal” lamps as well as battery
operated emergency lighting can be
connected in a mixed configuration to
the DGN/S 1.16.1.
Control of the lamps via KNX is undertaken
by 16 lighting groups, which can
be comprised of any 64 DALI lamps.
An individual project-related DALI
device group assignment is possible
using the DALI-Software-Tool.
The fault status (lamps, ballasts or
emergency light converter) of every
individual DALI device or of the
lighting group is sent via different KNX
communication objects on the KNX.
In addition to the standard functions,
e.g. switching, dimming and brightness
value setting with the corresponding
feedbacks, the DGN/S has the
functions Staircase lighting, Scene,
Sequence and Slave. The lighting
groups can be integrated in this way
into a constant lighting control.
Function, duration and partial duration
tests and battery tests for the emergency
lighting systems with individual
batteries to EN 62386-202 can be triggered
and stopped via KNX. The test
results are made available on the KNX.
All DALI devices can be controlled
together in KNX mode as well as
The DGN/S is a DALI control device
(master) and requires an AC or DC
auxiliary power supply. A separate
DALI power supply is not required.
The DALI power source for the 64 DALI
devices is integrated into the DGN/S.
