1. General
The masterCONFIGURATOR software tool is intended for configuring and setting the parameters for
various TridonicAtco DALI units. It can also be used for addressing and grouping TridonicAtco DALI
units and for setting scenes.
The installation package comprises the following three components:
•
•
•
masterCONFIGURATOR
DALI Monitor
DALI BusServer
masterCONFIGURATOR
Configuration and parametrisation program. This program is used to set up a DALI circuit and
configure individual units (e.g. settings for the DALI MSensor). This document provides detailed
information about this program.
DALI Monitor (V2.5.0)
DALI Monitor is used for monitoring the DALI control circuit. DALI Monitor records the commands on
the bus and enables the DALI installation to be checked for correct operation. There are two ways in
which it can be opened, either via Start⇒Programs⇒DALITools⇒DALIMonitor or via the context
menu of DALI BusServer
DALI BusServer (V2.5.0)
DALI BusServer manages the interface to the DALI bus. The server is designed so that multiple
Windows applications can access this bus interface. This allows masterCONFIGURATOR and DALI
Monitor to be opened simultaneously so that bus commands can be recorded online. BusServer is
automatically opened when masterCONFIGURATOR or DALI Monitor is opened. Note: configTOOL
operates with DALI BusServer (V2.3.4) so it is not possible to have configTOOL and
masterCONFIGURATOR open at the same time. As son as DALI BusServer is running it can be
accessed via the Windows task bar.

3. Working with masterCONFIGURATOR
3.1 Selecting the DALI bus interface
DALI USB is used as the interface to the DALI bus. If the DALI USB is already connected to the PC it
is automatically detected and selected for communication. If the DALI USB is not automatically
detected, proceed as follows:
1. Connect the USB cable to the DALI-USB and to the PC on which the
masterCONFIGURATOR software has been installed.
2. Click on one of the highlighted areas
The following window will appear:
3. Select [USB]
4. Confirm with OK.
When you have selected the DALI USB the DALI BusServer will be automatically launched and the
connection to the DALI circuit will be established.
NOTE: You need the DALI USB as the interface to the DALI control line. If you use DALI SCI
(RS 232) full functionality cannot be guaranteed.
If a DALI USB is detected the software version of the DALI USB will be checked. If this
version is older than the one supplied in masterCONFIGURATOR it will be
automatically updated. The update takes about one minute.

3.2 Searching the DALI bus for devices
There are two ways of searching for new devices on the DALI bus.
•
System expansion
A search is carried out for devices that have already been addressed and devices that have
not yet been addressed (i.e. devices that have been added). The devices that have already
been addressed remain unchanged, and the new devices found are assigned to the next free
DALI short addresses.
IMPORTANT: If the system is being expanded the new devices that are added to the
system must not already have a DALI short address otherwise there may be
problems with duplicated addresses.
•
Complete new installation
In this case all the devices on the bus are reset to their factory defaults (DALI Reset) and all
the DALI short addresses in the devices are deleted. The devices are then assigned new
addresses.
1. Start the Addressing Wizard
2. Select either “System expansion” or “Complete new installation”
Press “Next” to start the addressing process
© 2007 TridonicAtco
Page 6 of 17
The devices found are then listed. In brackets after the devices are the DALI addresses that
have been assigned to them (e.g. A1=address 1, eA1= eDALI address= 1):
At the end of the addressing cycle press the “Finish” button.
This transfers the devices found to the masterCONFIGURATOR.
You can press the “Extended” button to set extended addressing options.
•
Physical Selection Luminaire:
For physical selection of luminaires the light sources of the devices connected to the
bus must be removed from their holders and replaced again to address the device.
•
Physical Selection Controls:
For the physical selection of controls the controls have to be operated briefly when
you are requested to do so. For example for DALI TOUCHPANEL you need to press
one of the buttons briefly.
•
Invisible addressing:
The “invisible” option specifies whether addressing is to be with or without visual
feedback. The invisible method is recommended if the building is already in use and
the system is merely being expanded to incorporate recently connected luminaires.

3.3 Grouping devices
After addressing has been completed, the devices are shown in the DALI bus view. If devices already
belong to a group this group is automatically created and the devices in this group are shown. Note
that DALI devices may belong to several groups at the same time; they are then shown in all of these
groups.
•
Creating a new group
Right-clicking in the DALI bus overview opens a context menu
where you can select “New Group”. The next free group is then
automatically added to the tree view.
•
Changing a group name
Right-clicking on the group opens a context menu. The
“Rename” option lets you edit the name of the group.
•
Assigning a DALI device to a group
Devices are grouped by dragging them onto the relevant group entry. The device is removed from
the group from which it is dragged and added to the new group. If you hold down the Ctrl key while
dragging, the device is not removed from its original group but simply added to the new group. In
other words, it is copied to the new group.
•
Removing a DALI device from a group
You can remove a device from a group either by dragging the device to the bus interface (first
entry in the list) or by right-clicking to display the context menu and selecting the option for
removing the device from the group.
•
Removing a DALI device
You can remove a device from the list by pressing the Delete key or by selecting the relevant
option in the context menu. You will see the following message:
NOTE: For grouping the DALI MSensor see section 4.2.1: Assigning the DALI MSensor to a
group
3.4 Checking assignments / localising devices
The “Localise” function is provided so you can check the assignment of
the devices to the groups. If “localise” is ticked the selected device or the
selected group will flash (visual feedback).

3.5 Device properties, parameters
When you click on (select) a device in the DALI bus overview the properties of this device are
displayed in the right-hand window. You can change these settings and store the new settings back in
the device:
Changing the device name:
Right-clicking on the device opens a context menu. The “Rename” option lets you edit the name of the
device.

4. DALI devices
4.1 DALI unit (ECG)
The masterCONFIGURATOR can be used to change the address, grouping and scene values of the
DALI unit.
Read device data
All the device data is read from the
device on the bus and displayed
Save device data
All the device data is saved to the
device on the bus
Change the DALI short address
The address assignment of the DALI
devices can be changed here.
If a device on the bus already has the
newly entered address the addresses
of the two devices are exchanged. (To
exchange the DALI address at least
one short address must be free.)
Switch the ECG on and off
Group assignment
Displaying the group assignment
Useful if an ECG is assigned to more
than one group.
Scene assignment
For setting the scene values for all 16
DALI scenes.
0 – 100% = dimming level of the scene
MASK = No scene stored.
If the installation calls for extended DALI parameters such as fade time and maximum light level to be
changed, these settings must be made using the ConfigTOOL.

4.2 DALI MSensor
The DALI MSensor consists of the following three basic components:
•
•
•
Light sensor
Motion sensor
Remote control
MSensor in the DALI bus overview
The following three device types are
assigned to the MSensor in the DALI bus
overview
• Light sensor
• Motion sensor
• Remote control
4.2.1 Assigning the DALI MSensor to a group
There are two ways of assigning the DALI MSensor to a DALI group:
•
1. Using a rotary switch:
The group address for lighting control is set on the rotary switch of the sensor (see data sheet).
With this type of addressing the DALI MSensor is not assigned to a group in the bus overview but
is listed separately in the bus overview.
DALI MSensor is not assigned to
any group in the bus overview
The property field contains the
additional information that the
DALI MSensor is assigned to the
luminaire group via the rotary
switch

•
2. Using the masterCONFIGURATOR
The luminaire group is set by dragging the DALI MSensor to the relevant group entry.
The rotary switch of the sensor is ignored in this case.
DALI MSensor is assigned to a
group in the bus overview
The property field contains the
additional information that the
DALI MSensor is assigned to the
luminaire group via software.
The next higher group is
automatically assigned as the
sensor input group
IMPORTANT: Note that this group assignment overwrites the rotary switch setting and the
setting is then no longer active. If the MSensor is subsequently removed the group
the rotary switch setting will become active again.
4.2.2 DALI MSensor light sensor
Read device data
The device data is read from the
device on the bus and displayed
Save device data
The device data is saved to the device
on the bus
Measured brightness:
Brightness measured at the sensor
lens (at the workplace the brightness
may be 3 to 4 times higher).
Lighting control status:
• Manual: Lighting control by the
sensor is deactivated or the setpoint
has been reached
• Automatic: Lighting control by the
sensor is active
Nominal brightness:
Setpoint for lighting control measured
at the sensor lens (at the workplace
the brightness may be 3 to 4 times
higher).
Control speed:
This indicates the fade rate in [0-7
steps] at which the ECG is to reach
the setpoint value.
(0 slow - 7 fast)
Switch-on level:
Indicates the light level when the light
source is switched on (starting point of
the light control. The choice is [MAX],
[MIN] or [automatic].
(automatic…MSensor calculates a
special light level)
Bright Out:
If the light value exceeds the response
threshold for longer than the delay
time the luminaire group is switched
off by the DALI MSensor
NOTE: To deactivate the light sensor the switch-on value in the motion sensor properties must
be set to fixed brightness.
(See 4.2.3 DALI MSensor motion sensor)
NOTE: To transfer the changed values to the DALI MSensor you need to press the “Save”
button.

device on the bus and displayed
Save device data
The device data is saved to the device
on the bus
Start-up behaviour:
Indicates how the DALI MSensor
reacts after failure of the bus supply
(power failure). The choice is [No
action], [Last status], [Max], [Off] and
[Automatic]
(Automatic… special light value for the
light regulation)
Motion sensor:
Indicates the operating mode of the
motion sensor.
• Active: Default mode
• Only off: The motion sensor only
switches off not on
• Inactive: The motion sensor is
deactivated
ON ramp (1):
Indicates the time in [s] that is to
elapse before the light is switched on
after motion is detected.
ON time (2):
Delay time in [min] in which there is no
motion in the room
Switch-on value:
• Light sensor active: The light value
is controlled via the light sensor
• Fixed brightness: The DALI
MSensor switches the luminaire
group to a fixed brightness value
“Manual off” delay:
If the system is switched off manually
the motion sensor is deactivated.
At the end of this delay if motion has
not been detected the motion sensor
is activated again.
If the sensor detection motion during
the “Manual Off” delay, the time will be
reset to the start.
OFF ramp (5):
Indicates the time in [s] in which the
devices fade from the minimum
brightness (4) to Off.
MIN ramp (3):
Indicates the time in [s] in which the
devices fade to minimum brightness.
MIN time (4):
Indicates the time in [min] in which the
minimum brightness value is held
Minimum brightness:
Dimmer value of the luminaire group
for “MIN time”
NOTE: Selecting fixed brightness as the switch-on value deactivates the light sensor.
NOTE: To transfer the changed values to the DALI MSensor you need to press the “Save”
button.
Never Off function
If the “MIN” time is set to “Never Off” the light value remains at the minimum brightness level until
motion is detected and the DALI MSensor switches to the switch-on value. (The luminaire group is
never switched off by the DALI MSensor but remains at minimum brightness.)
