6 Commissioning
The masterCONFIGURATOR software allows the user to test the correct wiring of the DALI control line,
address the devices and define group and scene settings in five easy steps. In order for these steps to be
carried out, an interface must first be selected. Optionally, the device search and the addressing can be
narrowed down.
6.1 Selecting an interface
Use a DALI USB for exchanging data between the computer and the devices on the DALI control line. For
backward compatibility, DALI SCI2 can be used.
i
Note
DALI SCI is not supported.
If the computer is already connected to the DALI control line via an interface, the masterCONFIGURATOR
software automatically detects the type of interface and selects it for communication. However, the interface
may also be selected manually.
Selecting an interface manually
1. Connect the USB cable to the DALI USB and the computer on which the masterCONFIGURATOR
software is installed.
2. Connect the DALI USB to the DALI control line.
3. Select Settings > Select interface…
The Select interface pop-up window appears.
4. To use a USB interface, select the USB radio button.
5. To use a COM interface, select the COM radio button.
6. If a COM interface is being used, select the COM interface from the drop-down list.
7. Confirm the selection by clicking on OK.
The interface has been selected.
DALI BusServer starts automatically.
masterCONFIGURATOR manual 2.22 | 04.2016 | en
12
i
Note
If the masterCONFIGURATOR software detects that a DALI USB is connected, it
automatically checks the USB software version. If it is older than the version supplied with the
masterCONFIGURATOR software, it will be updated automatically. This update takes
approximately one minute.

6.4 Addressing
Addressing can be carried out using the addressing wizard. There are generally two ways to address
devices:
New initialisation: all addresses and group memberships are deleted in the devices. The devices are
then re-addressed.
System extension (address previously unaddressed devices): a search is carried out for previously
addressed and unaddressed devices. Addressing for previously addressed devices will remain unchanged.
The next available address is then assigned to devices which have been recently added.
i
Note
In the event of system extension, recently added devices cannot already have an address.
Otherwise, duplicate addresses could be assigned, which would lead to problems.

7.9 Checking device assignment
There are various ways to check the device assignment to the physically existing groups.
Icon
Description
The Locate icon can be used to determine where bus subscribers are located or which
address they have. A single device, a group or all the devices connected to the DALI control
line can be located.
The type of location method depends on the device. There are two types of method: visual
and acoustic.
Visual location: type of location in which the address of a bus subscriber is used to
visually locate this subscriber in the field. A visually located luminaire, for example,
responds by switching to the maximum level. A visually located emergency luminaire, for
example, responds by forwarding its address as a binary flashing pattern via the status
LED.
Acoustic location: type of location in which the address of a bus subscriber is used to
acoustically locate this subscriber in the field. An acoustically located sensor, for
example, responds by beeping.
The following devices can be located:
DALI control gear
i
Note
Special note for control gear for emergency lighting: Only ever one control gear
element for emergency lighting can be located. Locating all of the devices
connected to the DALI control line is only possible with the
Identify icon.
Input devices
Sensors
The Identify icon can be used to determine where an emergency luminaire with a specific
DALI short address is located. If the function is enabled, all of the emergency luminaires
connected to the DALI control line respond by forwarding their address as a binary flashing
pattern via the status LED.
The following devices can be identified:

CLO
The CLO function is a control to ensure that the required intensity remains constant over the entire LED
lamp life.
CLO disabled
Required intensity: 100%
Expected LED life: 50,000 h
The intensity of an LED continuously decreases
over the LED lamp life. The control gear does not
compensate for this decrease. For this reason the
required intensity can no longer be ensured over
the entirety of the LED's lamp life.
CLO enabled
Required intensity: 80%
Expected LED life: 50,000 h
A required intensity must be defined in order to
ensure a constant intensity over the LED lamp life.
This intensity is based on the natural reduction of
intensity defined by the LED manufacturer. The
control gear compensated for this natural reduction
by adjusting its own output accordingly.

is detected in the room.
Absence value
Level to which the luminaire group switches during the
switch-off delay.
Fade-in time
Time required to reach the presence value.
Run-on time
A time starting from the last detected movement in the room;
when the run-on time expires, the fade time begins. If further
movement is detected during the run-on time, it starts over
again.
Fade time
Time during which the lighting is smoothly adjusted to the
absence value.
Switch-off delay
Time for which the absence value is maintained if no
movement is detected.
Dead time
Time started by manually switching off the lighting via the
momentary-action switch or the remote control and during
which the motion sensor is disabled. If movement is detected
in the room during this time, the dead time starts over again.
If at the end of the dead time no more movement is detected
in the room, the motion sensor is enabled again.

8.1.6.1.4 Disabling emergency luminaires
!
Warning
Suppression of safety device!
These operating modes suppress a safety device. The emergency luminaires are not switched
on in an emergency and this can lead to fatalities or serious physical injuries.
Make sure that there is not an emergency and emergency mode is not required.
To interrupt the voltage supply without the emergency luminaire being switched on, it is possible to use the
operating modes inhibit mode and rest mode.
Inhibit mode
Rest mode
The emergency luminaire is powered by the mains
supply. Inhibit mode lasts no longer than 15 minutes.
Rest mode is enabled instead of emergency mode
if the voltage supply is interrupted during these 15
minutes. This prevents the emergency luminaire
from being switched on in emergency mode.
If there is no power outage during these 15
minutes, inhibit mode is terminated and mains
operation is restored.
The emergency luminaire remains deliberately
switched off while the voltage supply is
interrupted. This function is used to ensure that
the battery is not discharged in cases where the
voltage supply is deliberately interrupted.

Note
The configTOOL operates with the DALI BusServer V 2.3.9. It is therefore not possible to have
the configTOOL and the masterCONFIGURATOR software open at the same time.
The DALI BusServer opens automatically when the masterCONFIGURATOR software or the DALI Monitor is
started.
As soon as the DALI BusServer is running, it can be accessed via the
masterCONFIGURATOR manual 2.22 | 04.2016 | en
icon in the Windows task bar.
239
Updating the firmware version
Once the DALI USB is connected, the DALI BusServer checks the firmware version. If necessary, the
firmware version of the DALI USB is updated automatically. The update takes approximately 10–15
seconds.
Errors during firmware version update
In rare cases the update may fail. This can be seen from the fact that neither of the LEDs on the DALI USB
illuminates when it is connected. In normal operation, one LED is constantly on while the other indicates
activity on the DALI control line.
With the masterCONFIGURATOR software version 1.16 and higher, the DALI BusServer V 2.6.4 is also
installed. This detects that the update of the firmware version of the DALI USB has failed. In this case, the
DALI USB Firmware Update button is visible on the user interface of the DALI BusServer. Click on DALI
USB Firmware Update to start the update manually.
After a successful update, the DALI BusServer is closed automatically. This means that the update has
been completed successfully. The DALI USB can then be used again with the masterCONFIGURATOR
software.
