Index

The LDALI‑PLC4 controllers are powerful, freely programmable lighting controllers, which can be programmed by L‑STUDIO. With Alarming, Scheduling, Trending and e-mail notification (AST™) the LDALI‑PLC4 controller is a perfect solution for DALI lighting systems with application requirements not covered by the standard application of the non-programmable L‑DALI controllers.

Built-In or External DALI Power Supply

The LDALI‑PLC4 Controller needs an external DALI power supply to power up the DALI network. Power supplies are available for single channel or up to four channel DALI networks.

DALI Network Interface

The LDALI‑PLC4 device is equipped with 4 independent DALI channels. Up to 64 DALI-based luminaries per DALI channel can be controlled individually or via 16 groups. All luminaries are monitored for lamp or ballast defect. L‑DALI represents a DALI-Master in the DALI network which can interact with selected DALI multi-sensors in Multi-Master mode.

IoT Integration

The IoT function (node.js) allows connecting the system to almost any cloud service, either for uploading historical data to analytics services, delivering alarm messages to alarm processing services or operating parts of the control system over a cloud service (e.g., scheduling based on Web calendars or booking systems). Processing Internet information such as weather data in forecast-based control is also possible. Finally, the JavaScript kernel also allows implementing serial protocols to non-standard equipment in primary plant control.

Local Operation and Override

The L‑DALI Controllers come with a built-in backlit display (128x64) and a jog dial for local operation and override. Using the local operation, maintenance tasks (DALI device replacement, burn-in mode, etc.) can be executed without the need of any software tool.

Freely Programmable

The LDALI‑PLC4 can be programmed using the L‑STUDIO programming tool. It can be programmed using IEC 61499 for integration into the L‑ROC system and IEC 61131 for stand-alone operation.

Connectivity

The LDALI‑PLC4 controller provides connectivity functions to concurrently integrate CEA‑709 (LonMark Systems), BACnet, KNX, and Modbus subsystems. LonMark Systems can be integrated via IP‑852 (Ethernet/‌IP). BACnet integration is supported through BACnet/‌IP (Ethernet/‌IP) or BACnet MS/‌TP (RS‑485), KNXnet/‌IP and Modbus TCP via Ethernet/‌IP.

The gateway functionality allows data communication between all communication technologies available on the device. Different technology data points are mapped through Local Connections on the device. The mapping of different technology data points on distributed devices is supported by Global Connections.

Each LDALI‑PLC4 is equipped with two Ethernet ports. It can either be configured to use the internal switch to interconnect the two ports or every port is configured to work in a separate IP network.

When the Ethernet ports are configured for two separate IP networks, one port can be connected for instance to a WAN (Wide Area Network) with enabled network security (HTTPS) while the second port can be configured to be connected to an insecure network (LAN) where the standard building automation protocols like BACnet/‌IP, LON/‌IP, or Modbus TCP are present. These devices also feature firewall functionality of course to isolate particular protocols or services between the ports.

Using the internal switch, a daisy chained line topology of up to 20 devices can be built, which reduces costs for network installation. The IP switch also allows the setup of a redundant Ethernet installation (ring topology), which increases reliability. The redundant Ethernet topology is enabled by the Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), which is supported by most managed switches. The LDALI‑PLC4 provides fully featured AST™ functionality (Alarming, Scheduling, and Trending) and can be integrated perfectly into the L‑WEB System.

Device Configuration via Tool or Web Interface

The device configuration, commissioning, and parameterization is done either with the configuration tool software or via the integrated web server.

EnOcean, SMI and LIOB/‌IP

Wireless EnOcean sensors and buttons can be integrated via the optional L‑ENO EnOcean interface. For sunblinds the LSMI-804 extension module allows the integration of up to four SMI channels. Physical I/‌Os can be integrated through L‑IOB I/‌O Modules via LIOB‑IP.

Advanced DALI Functions

  • DALI Sensors
    The LDALI‑PLC4 Controllers support the integration of DALI multi-sensors for presence detection and light level recognition. In addition to the LOYTEC DALI multi-sensor LDALI-MS2, DALI sensors of well-known manufacturers can be selected from a list of tested devices.
  • DALI Pushbutton

    For manual operation, DALI push button coupler and IR remote controls can be integrated into the system. The function executed when a button is pressed is freely programmable in the program logic.

  • DALI Relay Modules
    Standard loads in the power grid can be controlled via DALI using DALI Relay Modules.
  • Auto Burn-In for Fluorescent Lamps
    Fluorescent lamps must be operated about 100 hours with 100 % brightness before they may be dimmed. This burn-in process is monitored by L-DALI for each lamp. After 100 hours burn-in time, the lamp’s constant light control is enabled.
  • ldali-3E102-U_DALI
  • Automatic Test of Emergency Lighting Systems
    In DALI emergency lighting systems, L‑DALI can be used for testing the system. The results can be logged.
  • Collection of important Operational Parameters
    For maximum transparency in the lighting system, L-DALI can record the operating hours of each lamp and also the energy consumption (calculated).
  • DALI Device Replacement made easy
    Defective DALI ballasts can easily be replaced directly on the L-DALI Controller (LCD and jog dial) or via the Web interface. No software tool is necessary.
