City of Palmerston ‘Makes the Switch’ across its lighting network with the latest in smart technology

Palmerston, Australia, is switching its 5,000 streetlights to smart LED technology. This includes a downward-facing Zhaga-D4i interface on each luminaire, to allow for future addition of smart sensors. These might count traffic, measure climate parameters or monitor for pollution.

A safe, sustainable journey for Gran Canaria's highways

This Smart City project uses Philips DigiStreet luminaires with integrated Zhaga-D4i connectors, which will allow sensors and other connected devices to be installed in the future.

Smart city becomes reality

This networked street lighting project in Biberstein, Switzerland, uses Zhaga-D4i luminaires from Siteco, which contain D4i LED drivers from OSRAM. These have the capability to provide luminaire, energy and diagnostics data according to specifications from the DALI Alliance (DiiA).

Beverly Center selects ETC to control luxurious new lighting


July 2020

Social-distancing office, UK

"The control protocol is DALI-2 and, as it’s all phase dimmed from a single infrastructure, it gave the lighting designers flexibility in the selection of light sources."

ENG flagship store, Shanghai

"Calibration by the drivers and LED modules ensures high white light quality from 2,700 to 6,500 K – at constant luminous flux in all colour temperatures and perfect colour consistency between systems and luminaires. The built-in DT8 PRE drivers offer outstanding dimming between 1 and 100 percent thanks to DALI."

Bauhaus Museum. Dessau

Trends in Lighting spoke with project director Carla Wilkins from Lichtvision Design on the lighting scheme for Bauhaus Museum Dessau..."We provided a DALI lighting control system and grouped the fittings in order to provide a sleek interior appearance devoted to functionality...The industry standard DALI has made it possible for us to overcome most technical challenges in a manageable way."

Forum Groningen, Netherlands

"Over one thousand tunable white luminaires deliver uniform, quality light across ten floors of retail and public space...[luminaires] can be dimmed to 0.1% and provide continuous dynamic adjustment of the light from 2500K to 4000K throughout the day...Using eldoLED® drivers supporting the new DALI Device Type (DT) 8 standard..."

Samsung KX

“The entire space is controlled by a DALI system, which has the capacity to be totally transformative. Every one of the LED lights that you see in the space is individually addressable and can be adjusted according to how Samsung KX is being used.”

The first KNX intelligent commercial building in the USA

As the HQ for ABB’s Industrial Automation USA division, this intelligent building needed to have the highest level of building automation available. The KNX protocol was used for all of the occupant/room level controls including LED lighting (with DALI) and HVAC. The project comprises 1197 KNX components, 3425 DALI interior lights, and 225 exterior lights including the parking lot and five ABB signs.

Lighting Control: A Work of Art

"The Prodigy Controller...seamlessly interfaces with existing DALI fixtures and can be controlled remotely via app or web browser from any smart device, allowing for easy and instant reconfiguring of light levels throughout the space."

November 2019

Pilkington Automotive facility, Gelsenkirchen, Germany

"Around 1,300 Maxos fusion luminaires from Signify illuminate the entire facility in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, and the sensors relay information about warehouse usage and conditions via a Zigbee wireless connection to a cloud data system...Chips also wirelessly relay information about light conditions (such as outages) and luminaire energy consumption, which they gather from DALI wires in the same trunk as the electricity wires. Pilkington additionally uses DALI for lighting control."

Aerospace Bristol Museum. Bristol, UK

"The system communicates via DALI, which means that each DALI luminaire can be used as an individually monitored emergency luminaire and can be controlled individually."


October 2019

Bauhaus Dessau, Museum

"Bauhaus Dessau Museum uses ABB i-bus KNX for safe and smart building technology...Using ABB’s DALI gateways all controllers, sensors and detectors can be integrated into one network. This enables programming and control of all lights in the building from the central control point."


Lux Review

October 2019

Imperial College, London

"Imperial College’s main criteria was that the project had to result in energy cost savings and take advantage of any natural daylight. BEG Lighting Controls and Buro Happold worked on the layout of the lighting as well as the level of light and type of control required for these areas."

Macq office, Brussels, Belgium

"The controller converts Bluetooth mesh commands to a DALI output, enabling rapid retrofitting of existing LED systems into Bluetooth mesh lighting networks."

Scottish Parliament Debating Chamber, UK

"Control-wise, KSLD replaced the original scheme with Lutron-controlled DALI lines, as Shaw elaborated: “The original scheme was just switched. We had all the power lines in the ceiling, and we repurposed these to become DALI lines with minimal re-wiring, because in six weeks, we couldn’t rewire the whole thing.”

Evolution Tower, Moscow, Russia

"The system then uses advanced algorithms to control the DALI-dimmable luminaires and the custom roller window blinds to maximise visual comfort and minimise energy use. Each fitting uses RGBW LED technology to allow infinite scenes. In total, there are 3,500 luminaires representing pixels."

Curl Aberdeen: Lighting Fit for Champions

"To avoid using complicated controls, the rink uses the Holophane Holos Air Lite system. This is based on the wireless EnOcean technology protocol. A simple wall switch, which doesn’t require any mains power, sends a signal wirelessly to the DALI connected node on the luminaires. No extra wiring is required to dim the luminaires."

Thorn illuminates world’s longest sea bridge

Thorn secured two of the three lighting contracts for the world’s longest sea bridge, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, a 115.9 billion yuan (EUR14.7 billion) project. Thorn’s products illuminate the two artificial islands at the east and west of the crossing, and the tunnel that leads to the bridge from Hong Kong. Thorn's Hong Kong team secured the tunnel lighting contract using 6000 of Thorn’s GTLED Entry and GT58 luminaires with DALI drivers to light a one-kilometre tunnel.
