1. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
DMX-DALI Converter is an advanced video converter that allows in easy way to combine
dynamic light systems based on the DALI control and DMX-512 systems.
PX175 allows you to connect, in accordance with the standard DALI up to 64 DALI devices.
Device menu allows to independently address any individual lamps or groups of devices, and
user can create up to 16 groups. What is more for each of the lamp, you can define a number of
individual parameters such as minimum and maximum brightness of the lamp, the time in which
the brightness of the lamp reaches its maximum value (fade time), the amount of steps needed to
achieve maximum brightness level (fade rate) and determine the brightness of each lamp in case
of control system failure.
The PX175 allows also to select the response of the system on loss of DMX signal (either
complete exclusion, the full brightness of a static scene or a user-specified brightness).

4.3.7. REMARKS
Ballast - is a device plugged into the DALI bus. This is usually part of the lamp, but
it may also be other DALI devices.
DALI interface protocol is relatively slow compared to the DMX protocol, therefore in large
installations is recommended:
Reducing the number of ballasts (in the
menu) to the actual number of lamps in
the system
Grouping ballasts.
Removing redundant group addresses.

4.4. SETTING ADDRESSES OF THE DALI DEVICES
To start programming, at a beginning the DALI devices should be given the addresses. This can
be done in two ways: manually (by users), auto (the converter itself gives the addresses of the
DALI devices.) It is recommended to manually set the addresses.
To automatically assign addresses to ballasts you need in the
menu to choose the
,
submenu using buttons NEXT or PREV, press ENTER. Then select
and confirm by
pressing ENTER. When on the device display will appear
press ENTER. The converter
will start automatically search the network in order to give addresses to encountered ballasts.
The display will start to flash, and found ballasts will in turn on. Addresses will be assigned in the
same order as they were detected starting from 001.
To manually assign addresses you need to go to the
menu using buttons NEXT or PREV,
and confirming with ENTER. Then select
and confirm with ENTER. When on the converter
display will appear
, press ENTER. To begin the process of locating ballast proceed as
follows:
While the converter looks for ballasts on the display blinks with message
, after detecting
lamp it lights up and on the screen flashes the suggested address of the ballast. You can change
the address using buttons NEXT or PREV. To accept press the ENTER button, after that the
ballast dims. This process is repeated until the final weights will be found.
The procedure can interrupted by ESC button.
Note. Number of visible and available addresses for the lamp depends on the number of units
declared by the user when selecting a quantity of ballast in the
menu.
If necessary, increase this value (see chapter 4.5).
4.5. SETTING THE NUMBER OF THE DALI DEVICES
Max ballasts number that are supported by the DALI protocol is limited to 64. To facilitate
programming and to optimize the performance it is recommended to introduce the required
amount of ballast by the user. You can do this as follows:
After running the converter to go to the
menu by pressing the ENTER button, then pressing
NEXT or PREV to go to the menu
and press ENTER.
Then go to the
menu using NEXT or PREV buttons and press ENTER. Then select the
desired number of ballasts and pressing ENTER.
After this operation, the
menu will only show number of ballast addresses which was
approved on the menu
.

4.6. MENU ALL
4.6.1. Main DMX address
In the
menu you can set the DMX address of converter for DALI-controlled devices in a
range between 1 and 512. To do this, after selecting the
in
menu, press ENTER to
confirm. Use NEXT or PREV buttons to adjust the DMX address by selecting a value from 1 to 512
and press ENTER. Select another parameter to be set or press ESC to return to the main menu.
The address programmed in this way changes the previous individual settings of ballast
addresses so that they line up sequentially as the main address. The first ballast gets the equal
address of the converter. The numbers of all groups that were set up previously are excluded
(
). If necessary, you need to manually set the new addresses.
4.6.2. The reaction of the device on loss of DMX signal
When the converter is connected to DMX signal the DMX OK LED diode flashes on the front
casing panel of the device, if there is no signal diode goes out.
To set the behavior of the device in case of DMX signal loss you need to:
After selecting
in the menu
confirm the selection by pressing ENTER. Using NEXT
or PREV buttons select an appropriate option and press ENTER.
- all of the ballasts will be switched on with full power,
- all of the ballasts will be switched off,
- a scene that can be programmed.
If you want to set the light to specified brightness level, you need to program scene.
To program a scene, press ENTER after choosing
option. Then select a value from 0 to
255, where 255 is 100% of lamps brightness, and 0 is a lamp dimmed to a minimum.
This value will be sent to all of the lamps in the absence of DMX signal.
Note:
The maximum brightness when you choose
or
depends on the settings and
parameters of the individual DALI ballasts (see chapter 4.7.1. or 4.8.1.)
A value of 100% brightness is a maximum level parameter (
The value 0 is the minimum level parameter (
).
9
).
4.7. PROGRAMMING OF INDIVIDUAL DMX ADDRESS
Automatic DMX Addressing made during setting of the main DMX address may be insufficient for
in many cases. That is why, in the menu
DMX addresses can be individually set the for
each of the 64 ballast, and each of the 16 groups (see chapters 4.7.3 or 4.8.2).
After entering the
menu, you can choose number
of the ballast. Using NEXT or
PREV buttons to navigate, go to the requested number of the ballast, and as indicated the ballast
will light up. Press ENTER to confirm. Select the desired DMX address for the ballast from the
scope of 1-512, or choose
to turn off the ballast with DMX control. Number of ballasts is
determined by the user (see chapter 4.4.). Default setting is the maximum number allowed by the
standard DALI ballast i.e. 64.
The same procedure applies if you want to set the DMX address of the group (
). To do that
you need to go using NEXT button in the same menu to the group option. After choosing group of
lamps, those ones being members of this pack will light up. The DALI standard can set address
up to the 16 groups.
4.8. MENU dAL
ALL
4.8.1. Determination of parameters for all DALI ballasts
To set the parameters for all DALI ballasts you need to: choose
from the main menu and
press ENTER. On the display will appear
confirm with ENTER. Using NEXT or PREV
buttons go to the DALI parameter (or one of the groups) you want to and then press ENTER to
select the desired value.
In ALL menu you can enter parameter values, but it is not possible to read them. There will always
be displayed the minimum value, although the real ones may be different. To read the value
placed on the parameter settings you need to go to a specific individual ballast (see chapter
4.8.1.)
