INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  • Mount DALI Extension on the DIN rail
  • Connect 24VDC power supply, but do not switch on until the whole installation is completed
    (We recommend looping power through the Miniserver)
  • Connect to the Loxone Link
  • Connect the DALI Controller to any DALI BUS that is setup
  • Note: If it is the last extension, terminate the Loxone Link with a 120Ω resistor
    (Included with the Miniserver)
  • Turn on the power supply
  • After a few seconds, the left LED will flash green if the DMX Extension is already configured, or orange if not

PLEASE NOTE: When working on your panel, please ensure that it is not live and all power has been disconnected. Please also ensure that the Loxone Link connector is not the only connector plugged into the device as this will cause damage should power be turned back on.

 

CABLING PRECAUTIONS

  • The maximum voltage drop between the transmitter and actuator must not exceed 24V
  • The maximum cable length is 300m with 1.5mm wire
  • For DALI installations ring topology must be avoided, alongside any other loops within the wiring.
  • When using the maximum cable length it is not advised to install DALI in combination with mains to avoid any form of interference.

POWER TO THE DALI BUS

  • When an external power supply is used for powering the DALI BUS you must ensure that you have unticked the “BUS supply” box in Loxone Config.
  • The voltage on the DALI bus is usually 16V
  • When an external power supply is used be sure to observe correct polarity.
