Testing for DALI compliance

Test equipment

Testing for DALI-2 and DALI version-1 compliance is carried out using ProbitLab test equipment, together with ProbitBench software. Both ProbitLab and ProbitBench are developed, owned and distributed by Lichtvision Engineering.

DiiA members are supplied with software test sequences that enable testing for compliance with the different Parts of the IEC 62386 standard. These test sequences are plugins for ProbitBench.

There are two different versions of the testing hardware: ProbitLab (no longer available) and ProbitLab2. 

Equipment Capability
ProbitLab ProbitLab can test DALI version-1 and DALI-2 control gear, provided they do NOT have an integrated bus power supply.
ProbitLab2 In addition to the above, ProbitLab2 can test DALI-2 control devices (e.g. sensors, application controllers etc), standalone bus power supplies, and devices with integrated bus power supplies.

DALI Test Houses

Member companies can carry out the required tests for each product, or they can use the services of DALI test houses that are accredited by DiiA.

Test sequences

Test sequences for DALI-2 and DALI version-1 testing are developed by DiiA’s Technical & Certification Work Group (T&C WG), and supplied to DiiA members.

Test sequences are required for each Part of IEC 62386. To achieve DALI-2 certification, a product must show compliance with each Part that is implemented.

In DALI-2, the testing requirements are not included in the IEC 62386 standard. One of DiiA’s key roles is to develop and update the required testing specifications for each Part of IEC 62386.

New test sequences for other Parts of IEC 62386 will be developed and released according to the priorities determined by DiiA members. The ability to contribute to DiiA’s technology roadmap is an important reason for companies to join DiiA. >> Reasons to join
