Comparisons made between zencontrol Room controller and other manufacturers DALI gateways. Times are based on the commissioning job by an agent/ engineer and not the installation by the electrician. *Due to the room control design, devices are addressed and assigned to rooms automatically, removing the need for specific address locations.
Fixed loads – no problem
Every channel on the Room controller can be toggled to act as a fully complaint DALI relay. This relay can be used to control other non-DALI loads, seamlessly integrating their control with other DALI products.
Additionally, the Room controller will detect non-DALI loads and automatically setup them up associating the control to the previous channel.
zencontrol products address DALI devices automatically and is complete before you even need it.
Add additional fittings at any time knowing they will be addressed and added to the system.
The room controller groups and sets up the rooms automatically, allowing the lighting, switches and sensors to work out of the box.
Switches and sensors can work in absence or presence, with time outs of 10/15/25/30 minutes, without a commissioning agent.
Additionally, throughout its entire life, any additional or replaced products will also be addressed, grouped and setup automatically reducing downtime and expensive call out fees.
Comissioning errors sorted
Issues associated with duplicate DALI addresses, which can be caused when relocating fittings, pre-addressed devices or poorly designed products are automatically fixed with zencontrol.
Additionally, the original device will retain its address while the newly added device will be moved to the next free location, reducing the time spent fault finding.
With the zencontrol room Controller, wiring becomes simpler and easier. Compared to traditional LCM wiring, less custom lead lengths are required making installation for the luminaire manufacture and the installer easier.
Wiring the room controller could not be easier, for each room, simply connect all light fittings, sensors, switches and emergency lighting together and back into a single channel on the room controller.
From time to time manufactures products fail, in some cases the DALI Ballast or drivers can short the DALI line. In other cases, poor wiring or setup can lead to a DALI line short. Most Installers know that finding a DALI short is a timely process which can sometimes leave the lights uncontrollable for some time.
The room controller is able to identify the room in which a short is present and isolate it from the rest of the DALI line. This significantly reduces the fault-finding time and additionally leaves all other rooms operational
Full featured and controllable
Out of the box the room controller is designed to work, however a commissioning agent can tailor the product to work for almost any custom requirement.
