DaliPro is a special software used in debugging and configuration of DALI lighting control
system. This software is not only able to conduct parameter configuration on Control Gear
(such as Dali LED driver, etc) that accords with standards of DALI, but also able to
conduct user-defined operations on keys in Control Device (such as DALI MC-4/8 and
DALI TOUCH MC-8, etc) made by DaliPro. Its main functions include:
 Addressing, configuration of basic parameters and test of Control Gears.
 Groups configuration.
 Scenes configuration.
 Addressing, configuration of basic parameters and test of Control Devices.
