DALI Emergency Testing 101: The Essential Guide 

Most buildings have extremely few emergencies. This means that emergency lighting frequently remains out for a long time. Therefore, it is crucial to do routine maintenance and testing to guarantee that the devices will function properly when necessary. 

DALI emergency lighting is widely utilized as a strong and dependable solution that satisfies safety-critical standards. DALI makes it possible for self-contained emergency tests to be automated and triggered by DALI commands or an optional timer,  ensuring that routine tests are not forgotten or missed due to human error. The control system saves the test findings, allowing for subsequent examination if necessary or automatic emailing to a facilities manager.

Types of test 

As IEC 62034, DALI  perform two types of tests, i.e., Function and Duration. A duration test periodically tests the battery and reports on the current battery and lamp status. At the same time, a function test provides quick feedback on the current battery, device, and lamp status. It is possible to initiate the test from a control system or a calendar placed in the emergency device.   

To conclude, 

DALI emergency lighting is widely utilized as a strong and dependable solution that satisfies safety-critical standards. The integrated digital control systems that mix illumination and emergency lighting are made possible by the DALI protocol. DALI-2 Emergency makes it easier to integrate building management systems, which have access to DALI control and querying capabilities, including automated testing and reporting. It further expands the interoperability of lighting-control equipment. To know about DALI emergency lighting in detail, please find the blog here!
