How does DALI-2 certification differ from DALI version-1 compliance testing?

View answer

The DALI-2 certification program is based on version 2 of the IEC 62386 standard for DALI technology, and involves verification of test results via a robust web-based tool. In contrast, DALI version-1 compliance testing is based on self-declaration without verification of results. As well as covering many different product types, including control devices (e.g. input devices and application controllers), DALI-2 certification offers the promise of improved interoperability of products from different manufacturers.
