DALI-2 certification program: Phases

Phase 1: August 2017

Part 101: System components 

  • Enables DALI-2 certification of standalone bus power supplies

Part 102: Control gear 

► Part 207: Control gear for LED modules

  • Enables DALI-2 certification of LED drivers

Part 103: Control devices

  • Enables DALI-2 certification of single-master application controllers
Phase 2: August 2018

Major updates to the following test sequences:

► Part 101
► Part 102
► Part 103

The following product types are added to the DALI-2 certification program:

  • Multi-master application controllers (previously, it was possible to certify single-masters only).
  • Integrated bus power supplies, in control gear and control devices (previously it was possible to certify stand-alone bus power supplies).
Phase 3: May 2019

New test sequences adding the following input devices to the DALI-2 certification program:

► Part 301 – Push-button devices
► Part 302 – Absolute input devices e.g. switches, sliders
► Part 303 – Occupancy sensors
► Part 304 – Light sensors

Updates to the following test sequences:

► Part 101
► Part 102
► Part 103

Phase 4: November/December 2019

New test sequences for D4i power and data specifications:

► Part 250 – Integrated Bus Power Supply
► Part 251 – Memory Bank 1 Extension (luminaire data)
► Part 252 – Energy Reporting
► Part 253 – Diagnostics & Maintenance

Part 150 – AUX Power Supply (this is included in DALI-2 certification if the AUX supply is part of an LED driver, but stand-alone AUX power supplies are not currently certified). 

Phase 5: February 2020

Tunable white colour control is added to the DALI-2 program:

► Part 209 – Colour control: colour type Tc (tunable white)
