DALI version 2

Full compliance with DALI standards ensures that our products function as expected to ensure a consistent experience through the systems life cycle.

zencontrol’s automation and simple control is built on the functions and commands from the latest versions of the DALI standard. Full compliance with DALI standards ensures that connected devices function as expected to ensure a consistent experience through the system life cycle.


The zencontrol product range has been built for compliance with DALI and DALI version 2 (V2).


DALI compliance is not just for zencontrol systems. With a compliant device, commissioning, set up and everyday usage is more consistent and more reliable on all DALI control systems.
