System Guidelines
Standalone Digidim System
• Up to 63 addresses per system
• Up to 250 mA current per system
• 10 mA / panel
• 15 mA / multi-sensor
• 2 mA required per load interface
• Each system may be configured with up to 16 groups
• Every load within a Digidim system may be programmed with up to 16 scene settings
Digidim Router System
• A single Digidim router can support up to 128 DALI devices
• Up to 100 Digidim routers may be networked together
• 16,000 groups
• Up to 12.800 DALI devices per system
• Each load interface has 128 scenes
• Integral 250 mA DALI power supply for each DALI network
