Installation and operating instructions
1. General use
B.E.G. DALI Gateways bring together the crossfunctional KNX installation bus and the lighting control specific DALI-Bus (IEC 60929). Lights
with cost-effective, digital DALI ECGs can therefore be integrated
into an overall KNX architecture and operated via the multitude of
existing KNX devices.
Numerous communication objects are available for the visualisation
of status and error information on an ECG as well as group and
gateway level. (Current application: 11 communication objects per
ECG and 8 communication objects per group + numerous individual
objects).
The B.E.G. DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N is a device used to control ECGs
with a DALI interface via KNX. The device transforms switch and dim
commands from the connected KNX system into DALI telegrams and
status information from the DALI bus into KNX telegrams.
In addition to all standard operating devices, the DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N also allows the control of individual battery emergency
lights (EN 62386-202). For individual battery emergency lights, a
distinction is made between devices with switchable ECGs (usually
emergency lights with one ECG) and devices with non-switchable
ECGs (converters), which are usually used in connection with
another “normal” ECG (2 ECGs per light). The DALI/KNX Gateway
IP-N allows for the mixed control of different ECG types within a
DALI segment. Emergency lighting systems with a central battery are
also supported.
The DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N is a Category 1 device (in accordance
with EN 62386-103). This means the device must only be used in
DALI segments with connected ECGs and not with other DALI control
devices within the segment (No multi-master function).
Power supply for the up to 64 connected ECGs comes directly from
the DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N. An additional DALI power supply is
not required and not permitted.
The device comes in a 4TE wide DIN Rail casing so it can be
directly integrated into the mains distribution box. Connection to the
bus is via a bus connector. Network and DALI lines are connected
via screw connectors on the device.
ECGs can be switched, dimmed and set to a defined value in 16
groups per gateway. In addition to group control, the DALI/KNX
Gateway IP-N offers the possibility to individually control up to 64
ECGs.
A scene module for the extensive programming of up to 16 scenes
from groups and individual ECGs as well as an effect module for
the control of processes and light effects are also available on the
device.
The DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N enables different forms of DALI
commissioning (allocation of DALI ECGs to individual groups and
changes in configuration):
1. Commissioning on the device
2. Commissioning via integrated web server
Please remember that once ECGs have been assigned to a group,
they can no longer be controlled individually. An ECG can only be
allocated to one DALI group. The DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N does not
support multi-group allocations. If multi-group allocation is required,
it must be performed via KNX communication objects.
The ETS (Engineering Tool Software) with the data base entry of the
current application program is also required for the final commissioning of the KNX communication.

8. Installation and wiring
The DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N is a REG device and is therefore
suitable for direct mounting in consumer units on 35 mm DIN
rails. Once the device has been mounted, the connecting cable
for the DALI bus should be led to the top left terminal. According to familiy of standards EN 62386, DALI control lines can be
led together with the power line in a 5-wire cable (single basic
insulation is sufficient). However, clear marking must be ensured. For the entire DALI installation in a segment, a maximum
line length of 300 m must not be exceeded (recommended cross
section 1.5 mm²).
Once the DALI line is connected, the two external pushbuttons
can be connected according to the connection scheme, if
required. The button inputs are passive, which means that an
auxiliary voltage of 8 - 26 V AC or 9 - 32 V DC is required.
The mains voltage is connected to the bottom right-hand terminal according to the instructions marked on the casing.
To connect the KNX line, a standard bus terminal is inserted in
the corresponding terminal slot on the device. Ensure double
basic insulation between the KNX installation and the mains
voltage. To do this, provide additional insulation on the wires
of the KNX line to the bus terminal using the shrink sleeve
provided.
Once all the connections have been made and the supply
voltage has been switched on, the firmware version is indicated
in the display. The flashing green PWR LED indicates that the
device is ready to operate. If the device is started up without
KNX, the red ERR LED lights up. If the ERR LED remains lit
even when the KNX voltage is connected, this indicates a
short circuit within the DALI segment (see also „SYSTEM TEST“
submenu below). In this case, please check the wiring of the
DALI segment.

For the DALI/KNX Gateway IP-N, the DALI segment can also
be started up easily via the integrated web server. The device
has an RJ45 socket on the bottom right-hand side above the bus
terminal. A standard patch cable can be used to connect the
device with a switch or router for the IP network (Ethernet). The
connection is usually only required during startup and can be
temporary. Once startup is complete, the Ethernet connection is
no longer required for normal operation. When connecting the
network connection, run the cable carefully to ensure sufficient
distance between the IP cable and the mains supply.
9. Operation and menu structure
It is possible to start up the connected DALI segment, and set
and modify the DALI parameters, using just the three buttons
(Move, Set/Prg, ESC) and the 2 x 12 character display on

10. DALI startup via the device buttons and the
display
Once the wiring is complete according to the above connection diagram, the DALI line can be started up. The installer
can initiate startup independent of KNX startup. If no KNX
is connected, the red ERR LED lights up to indicate an error.
However, DALI startup can still be continued. For initial startup,
first search the DALI line for connected electronic ballasts.
The search is started in the REINSTALLATION menu item (see
Operation and menu structure section). Once all the connected
devices have been found (indicated by an (ESC) behind the
number of found devices shown in the display), this menu item
can be exited. The devices must then be assigned to the individual DALI groups. The assignment is performed in the GROUP
ASSIGNMENT menu item (see Operation and menu structure
section). The assignment of all electronic ballasts to the desired
groups completes the basic installation.
11. DALI startup via software tool
12a. DALI startup via web server
The DALI segment can also be started using the free DALI
programming tool. For this option, the device must already be
connected to the KNX bus and a physical address assigned.
Communication with the device is then via an interface connected to the KNX.
In addition to startup via buttons or via the software tool, DALI
startup can be completed easily using the web server integrated in the device. For this option, the DALI/KNX Gateway 2 IP
can be connected directly to the IP network. On the bottom
left-hand side of the casing, above the KNX bus terminal, there
is an RJ45 socket. A standard patch cable can be used to connect the device with a switch, hub or router for the IP network.
Since the network connection is only required during startup, a
temporary connection is usually sufficient. Once the process is
complete, the network connection can be removed again. Of
course, a WLAN access point can also be used as a network
coupler. In this case, startup can also be completed via a portable notebook, PDA or similar device.

If buttons are connected to the device inputs, the button function
can be set in the FUNCTION INPUT B1 and B2 menu items
and the inputs can be assigned to individual DALI groups. This
means that even when the KNX is not yet available, DALI functions can already be executed (development mode). Of course,
the inputs can also be used in standard mode to integrate
inexpensive standard buttons in the system.
DALI EB
Finally, the last stage of DALI startup is to assign the groups to
the individual scenes in the SCENE ASSIGNMENT menu item
(see Operation and menu structure section).
DALI EB
