Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 2.4DescriptionDaliControlIPGateway
The MDT DaliControl IP Gateway receive KNX/EIB telegrams and enables the classic control of 16 DALI groups plus individual control of the ECG. An example is switching or dimming of 2x16 light in groups (advantage of synchronous switching inside the group) plus 32 individual lights. The MDT DaliControl IP Gateway detects light and ECG errors and releases telegrams in dependence of its parameterization. The commissioning after installation and group attribution of the DaliControl IP Gateway is done with the buttons on the device or with the integrated web interface. Quick identification and group attribution of the connected DALI segments can be done without connection to the KNX bus. The network connection is realized with an RJ45 interface.. The DaliControl IP Gateway is a modular installation device for fixed installation in dry rooms. It fits on 35mm rails in power distribution boards or closed compact boxes. 2.5Functions
The cross‐functional DALI‐Bus (DALI = Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) is a system used to control electronic ballasts (ECGs) in lighting technology. The specifications of the DALI communications interface are set in the international norm IEC 60929. The DALI Bus enables the receipt of switch and dim commands. In addition, the DALI can be used for the notification of a fault status such as light or ECG failure or for other light status information. In line with the latest DALI standard, devices with emergency light function (EN 62386‐202) are also supported. Status and operating mode of emergency lights can be monitored and different prescribed testing procedures can be performed. Via the connected control device / gateway (Master), up to 64 individual DALI ECGs (Slaves) can be connected in a DALI segment. When the DALI is commissioned, the ECGs receive an automatically generated 3byte long address. Based on the long address a short address between 0 and 63 is assigned during the further commissioning process. As the address assignment is automatic, the device order is random. The individual ECGs/lights therefore need to be identified during the further commissioning process (see below). The addressing of individual ECGs in the system is either based upon the short address (individual addressing) or upon a DALI group address (group addressing). For this purpose, any number of ECGs within a segment can be assigned to up to 16 groups. The group addressing in the DALI system guarantees that switch and dim processes of different lights within a system are performed simultaneously without imposition of time delays. In addition to short and group addresses, the light values of individual DALI ECGs can also be merged into scenes and addressed via scene addresses. For a detailed description of the DALI system, please see the DALI handbook at www.dali‐ag.org

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 The MDT DALI Gateway DaliControl IP Gateway is a device used to control ECGs with a DALI interface via the KNX installation bus. 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. The DaliControl IP Gateway 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 DaliControl IP Gateway. 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. In addition to the pure gateway functions, the DaliControl IP Gateway offers numerous additional features:  Addressing of 16 DALI groups and/or individual addressing of up to 64 ECGs  Flexible DALI commissioning concept: directly on the device or via the integrated web server  Different operating modes for groups and ECGs such as permanent mode, night‐time mode or staircase mode  Burn‐in mode for each individual light with specific burn‐in time settings  Integrated reader to count the operating hours of each light with an alarm to signify the end of its life span  Individual fault recognition with objects for each light/ECG  Complex fault analysis at group and device level with number of faults and calculation of fault rates  Fault threshold monitoring with individually adjustable threshold values  Scene module for extensive scene programming of groups and individual ECGs  Effect module for sequence control and light effects  “Quick exchange function“ for the quick and easy replacement of faulty ECGs  Test mode for centrally powered emergency light systems  Support of self‐contained emergency ballasts  Support of testing procedures for emergency lights with date and time stamp  Integrated web server with extensive commissioning and maintenance possibilities  Integrated “visualisation“ via web‐browser for direct control and display 2.6CommissioningDaliControlIPGateway

Plug‐In
3.1InstallingthePlug‐In
The application for the DaliControl IP Gateway is based on a powerful KNX communications stack of the System‐B type. It is designed as plug‐in for ETS‐3 and ETS‐4. The plug‐in design means that an additional installation process is necessary. All program files that are required are automatically set up when you import the corresponding ETS product file (vdx file). After the import the product can be integrated as usual into the ETS. It can be found under product family “Lighting“ and product type “Gateway“. When you first load the product in the ETS, you need to start the installation of the required plug‐in files by pressing the ‘Next‘ button. Please check the IPAS software license conditions before you start the installation. With the installation you accept the conditions. 10

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 If the installation has been successful, a notification window appears. Attention: The PC must have .NET Version 4.0 as a requirement for the installation. Normally the framework exists on any modern PC. Should an older version of .NET be installed or no version at all, you need to update .NET first. Please see the Microsoft website for the required setup. 3.2PrincipalstructureofthePlug‐In
The DaliControl IP Gateway is a high‐functionality product and accordingly offers many different setting options within the parameters. To make the overview of the parameters as simple and transparent as possible for the system integrator, there are more operating levels than with a standard ETS application. 11

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 Unlike with the standard applications, there is not only a parameter page for each device within the main parameter directory on the left‐hand side but also several sub‐pages which can be selected via a register at the top of the page. Use the main directory to select the element you require “General ECG No XX, Group No XX“ and the sub‐pages to set the parameters of the selected element. This structure is different from a standard device. You can also use the three menus “Data, Tools and Help“ in the header of the plug‐in window to perform some of the main functions and settings. 3.3OperatingmodesofthePlug‐In:DALIcommissioning
In principle, the plug‐in can be used in the two different operating modes “Normal mode“ and “Extended mode“. Depending on the concept needed for the DALI commissioning, you can select the required mode in the menu ‘Tools‘  ‘Options‘. The choice of the commissioning concept depends on the preferences of the system integrator as well as the technical requirements of the project. If you choose option A ‘Normal Mode‘ the DALI configuration and commissioning must be performed via the website of the device. This means that all project gateways ‐ at least during the commissioning phase ‐ must be integrated into an IP network via the IP interface. (The network can also be a simple cross‐link cable connection between the gateway and the configuration PC.) 12

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 If no IP network is available, only a limited commissioning process is possible via the display and push‐buttons on the device. However, if you choose commissioning option B “Extended Mode“ the whole commissioning process can be performed via ETS and KNX. No IP network is required in this case. Mode B also gives you the opportunity to configure individual ECGs ‘offline‘ in the ETS, i.e. before they are commissioned in the installation. However, in this case all objects and parameters are visible. The synchronisation that simplifies the ETS and brings it in line with the actual system is not possible. To decide which mode to use you should answer the following three questions:  Is the DALI gateway (at least temporarily during the commissioning process) integrated into an IP network? o Yes  Mode A or mode B o No  Mode B  Do you want to set the DALI configuration and parameters ‘offline‘ in the ETS prior to the commissioning of the installation? o Yes  Mode B  Do you want to perform the DALI configuration and set the parameters on the construction site and synchronise the ETS with the real installation to simplify it? o Yes  Mode A Mode A: ’Normal Mode‘ ‐‐‐ Mode B: ’Extended Mode‘ If the conditions permit it, we recommend using ‘Normal Mode‘, especially for integrators who are not too familiar with the DALI system because the large number of possible parameter settings and objects can be automatically reduced to those elements that are actually required. The standard setting after the initial installation of the plug‐in is therefore mode A. Please remember that whichever operating mode you select, it applies to all gateways within a project and ETS. It is not possible to select mode A for some and mode B for others. 13

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 4.DALIcommissioning
As explained above, the work flow for the commissioning of a DALI segment differs depending on the selected concept. The following chart shows the general procedure: 14

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 4.1CommissioningtheDaliControlIPGatewayviawebsiteorpushbuttons
If you select option A, i.e. commissioning the device via the website or pushbuttons, please use the following procedure. Following the physical installation and wiring of the ECGs and lights and the electronic commissioning, the connected ECGs need to be taught‐in. During the teach‐in process, all DALI ECGs are automatically recognised and each ECG is assigned a short address between 0 and 63. You can start this process either via the pushbuttons and menu on the device display (see below display and push button control) or via the commissioning website (see below control via web browser). The order of the ECGs within a DALI segment is completely random. You therefore need to identify the ECGs and ‐ if required ‐ assign them to groups. Identification and group assignment can also be performed via the device itself (pushbuttons, display) or via the website. If you use the website for identification, you can give each ECG an individual name (e.g. office‐left). If you want to control an ECG as part of a DALI group rather than individually, you can at this point assign it to a group. Once you have identified all ECGs and, if required, named and assigned them, you need to synchronise the ETS application. During the synchronisation, the system properties of the connected DALI segment are transferred to the ETS and the parameters and communication objects are configured accordingly. This means that after the synchronisation only objects and parameters of actually existing ECGs are visible to the user. The application is thereby optimised and simplified. ECG and group names are also transferred to the ETS. To start the synchronisation, press the respective button on the ETS parameter page (see below ETS application program). Once the synchronisation is complete, you can configure the individual ECG or group parameters in the ETS and connect communication objects with group addresses. When you have finished the configuration, simply download the ETS application onto the device. In principle, the installation is now ready for operation and function testing. However, if you would also like to program scenes or effects, you can do so via the pushbuttons and display on the device (only scenes and with limited functionality) or via the web site (scenes and effects without limitation). For a complete description of the display and push‐button control required for the commissioning, please see chapter 5. For a description of the website function, please refer to chapter 6. 15

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 4.2ThecommissioningprocesswithDaliControlIPGatewayviaETSPlug‐In
Instead of commissioning via web browser or push‐buttons, the DALI can also be entirely commissioned via KNX and the plug‐in. This mode B option enables a largely ‘off‐line configuration’ of the DALI installation. Parameters for ECGs and groups as well as communication objects can be completely configured before the electrical installation. Names can be assigned in advance and the setting of scenes and effects is also possible ‘offline‘. This means that the system integrator who uses the ETS and the electrician who works on the actual installation can work independently of each other. Once the electrical installation is complete, the actual DALI commissioning can also be performed with ETS. The first thing to do is to start the teach‐in process. During this process all connected DALI ECGs are automatically recognised and each ECG is assigned a random short‐address between 0 and 63. You can now identify the randomly ordered ECGs/lamps by selecting a respective operation (on/off/blinking) in the ETS. Use drag‐and‐drop to pull an ECG into the ECG position previously set in the ETS. The random order is thus ‘dissolved‘ and the installation is now well‐structured. When you download the DALI configuration, the configured data is downloaded onto the ECGs and if applicable the short‐addresses are amended in line with the pre‐configuration. Once you have programmed all DALI data, load the actual ETS application onto the gateway. For a detailed description of the ETS commissioning interface, please see chapter 7. 16

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 6Controlviawebbrowser
In addition to the pushbuttons, you can also easily commission the DALI via the integrated web server. For this purpose connect the DaliControl IP Gateway directly to the IP network. An RJ‐45 socket is located above the KNX bus connector at the bottom left‐hand side of the device. Use a standard patch cable to connect the device to a switch, hub or router of the IP network. You can also use a WLAN access point as network coupler. This means you can commission the DALI via a portable note book, tablet PC or mobile phone. Once the network is physically connected, you need to assign an IP address to the DaliControl IP Gateway to enable access via the web browser. By default, all IPAS devices with an IP interface are set to DHCP address assignment. If there is a DHCP server in the network the device automatically receives an IP address after initialisation. This address is shown on the device display (see above). If no DHCP service is available or if you would rather use a fixed IP address, you must set the address either via ETS or the device display. You may also need to configure the sub‐net mask and standard gateway (for direct access via the Internet). Those two parameters can only be configured in the ETS. Once the IP address has been assigned, load the device website via any web browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari). Simply enter the correct IP address (URL) in the browser. Please remember that the complete URL consists of the IP address and the prefix http:// To load a page enter, for example http://192.168.10.71. 24

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 6.3ECGfields
The ECG and group entries on the website mean that the user can see the complete function and failure status of a connected DALI segment at a glance. The ECG fields are numbered from 1 – 64. The number is shown in the bottom left‐hand corner of the field and corresponds to the ECG short address within the DALI segment. If an ECG is found during the search process (new and post‐
installation), a lamp or battery icon is inserted in the field. The battery icon symbolises an ECG for self‐contained battery emergency lights (device type 1). All other device types (without battery) are shown with a lamp symbol. If in the ETS an ECG is configured as emergency luminaire with central battery, a separate icon is displayed. The following icons are available: ECG ECG for self‐contained battery emergency lamp non‐switchable ECG for self‐contained battery emergency lamp switchable ECG with central battery supply The value and failure status of an ECG is symbolised by different icon and background colours. ICON light grey => Lamp switched off ICON yellow => Lamp switched on ICON red => Lamp failure Red background => ECG failure The assignment of an ECG is also shown in the field. Newly found devices are marked as ‘not assigned‘ via a ‘?’ symbol above the icon. When an ECG is assigned to a group, the group number replaces the ‘?’ symbol.

7.1.1SynchronisationwiththeconnectedDALIsegment
When you first load the parameter page, the parameters and groups for all possible 64 ECGs and 16 groups are displayed. In ETS mode A it is possible to simplify the commissioning and to bring the application in line with the real conditions of the connected DALI segment. To do so, you need to synchronise the application with the installation first. Start the synchronisation via the sync button in the bottom right‐hand corner of the main window. Depending on the size of the installation the synchronisation may take a few seconds. A bar at the bottom of the page shows how far the synchronisation has progressed. When the synchronisation is complete, only the objects and parameters of those ECGs that are physically connected to the device are shown. 34

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 In addition, the device types and, if applicable, the group asignments are also automatically set. If during the synchronisation a device type is found that does not match with the current settings in the ETS, a warning message appears. Please acknowledge the message by pressing yes or no. By default the synchronisation of the ETS is performed via the KNX network. If the gateway is already correctly integrated into the IP network and a corresponding IP address has been assigned, the synchronisation can also be performed via Ethernet. In this case, all you need to do is enter the correct IP address of the device into the tool bar at the top of the window and tick the check‐box in front of the bar. Alternatively, you can press the Read IP Address button to set the IP address of the selected device without manual entry. The synchronisation compares the application to the data of the connected DALI segment. This means that you should always synchronise when you change the system structure or expand the system. 35

To make the configuration as easy as possible for the user, it makes sense to choose user‐friendly names for ECGs and groups. Any names need to be assigned on the website in ETS Mode A directly during the identification. Please remember to press the confirm button next to the entry field after entering a name. Use the ‘Load Description’ command in the Tools menu to load the names directly into the ETS. The names are shown in brackets next to the corresponding device. As loading the names via KNX can take quite some time, you should use the Ethernet connection for this process. Before starting the process, please make sure you set the right IP address and tick the check‐box in front of the address. 36

In Mode B, the menu item ‘Commissioning‘ opens an additional page which is not available in ‘normal mode‘. This page is used both to plan the installation in advance of the commissioning and to perform the actual DALI commissioning later on (identification and assignment of ECGs). The structure of the commissioning page is as follows: The group configuration is displayed on the left‐hand side in a tree structure. The area in the middle shows the ECG configuration and names in a table format. On the right hand side is a list of all devices found in the system, which have not yet been identified. During the planning stage this part is empty as the ETS is not yet connected to the system. To start with you should plan and name the ECGs. Use the description field in the ECG configuration to enter a name (light number, room number, etc.) 38

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 The maximum number of characters available for names in the ETS plug‐in is 30. Whilst, in principle, the names are also transferred to the device website, it is important to remember that the website will display no more than the first ten characters of the name entered in the plug‐in. If you confirm your entry with the return button, the cursor automatically jumps to the next ECG field. This makes the naming process easy and secure. Once you have planned the ECGS, you should assign the groups. There are two ways to assign groups via drag‐and‐drop: 1.) Use the mouse to select an ECG in the ECG configuration field in the middle and drag it to the left dropping it above the required group in the group tree. 2.) Use the mouse to select an ECG from the group directory’s top category ‘not assigned‘ and move it down the directory dropping it above the required group. Once an ECG has been assigned to a group via drag and drop, the group number is automatically displayed in the ‘group number‘ field of the ECG configuration table. You can enter a user‐friendly name for the group in the ‘group description‘ field. ECG and group names are automatically shown in the group configuration directory (displayed in brackets) as well as in the description of the ETS communications objects. Having user‐friendly names makes linking the group addresses with the communications objects much easier for the system integrator. As soon as an ECG has been assigned to a group, it is no longer available for individual control. The parameters and communication objects are adjusted accordingly following the group assignment. ECGs that have not been assigned to a group are automatically regarded as ECGs for individual control. Please see chapter 11 for the planning and setting of scenes and effects. 39

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 7.2.2DALIcommissioningin‘ExtendedMode‘
Once the planning, parameter setting and linking of group addresses have all been completed the DALI segment can be commissioned. To do so, please connect the commissioning PC with the ETS to the KNX system via an interface (RS‐232, USB or IP). Once the connection is active, you need to program the physical address of the gateway. The communication between the plug‐in and the gateway is based on the physical address (or possibly on the IP address, see below). Use the ‘commissioning‘ page and the ‘tools‘ menu to start the teach‐in process of the connected DALI segment. Please remember that the selection shown above is only visible in the ‘Tools‘ menu if you have selected the ‘commissioning‘ page. The elements displayed always depend on the setting selected in the menu bar. During the teach‐in process all ECGs are automatically recognised and each ECG is assigned a short address from 0 ‐ 63. Depending on the size of the connected DALI segment the process can take up to 3 minutes. A bar in the bottom right hand corner indicates how far this process has progressed. The number of ECGs that have so far been found is also shown (in brackets). Once the teach‐in process is complete, all ECGs that have been found are displayed in the list of non‐
identified devices on the right‐hand side. 40

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 You can now identify the devices by switching the corresponding lamp on or off. If you select an ECG and press the right mouse button, a context menu appears from which you can select the required function. Alternatively, you can also tick the box ‘Automatic blink mode‘. In this case, the blink mode starts by itself when a device is selected. The context menu is also available at group and gateway level. During the identification process it might be useful to switch certain groups or all connected lamps on or off. If you select the main item ‘group configuration‘, you can use the right mouse button to send broadcast commands for on, off and blinking. Once an ECG has been identified, you can drag and drop it onto the previously planned element in the ECG configuration table. Once an ECG has been dragged into the ECG configuration table, it disappears from the list of non‐
identified ECGs. The ‘PLAN‘ flag in the configuration table shows that the ECG has been assigned to the planned element. 41

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 If an ECG has been wrongly assigned, it can be moved back to the list of non‐identified devices using the same drag& drop mechanism. After the ECG has been moved back, the element in the configuration table is empty (Flag: ‘PLAN (E)‘  Empty) and the ECG re‐appears in the list of non‐identified devices from where it can now be moved to a different element if required. Please remember that at this point all operations that have been performed are only displayed in the work space. They are not immediately loaded onto the DALI gateway. To start the process of downloading the settings onto the gateway and the ECGs, you must press the ‘Download DALI‘ button. The download can take up to 2 minutes. The progress bar informs about the current status. Once the download is complete, all previously planned ECGs are programmed in the real system with the DALI configuration. The respective devices are marked with an ‘OK‘ flag in the ECG configuration table. Non‐identified devices remain in the list on the right‐hand side. 42

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 Attention: Please remember that the download on the ‘commissioning page‘ only programmes the DALI configuration data onto the gateway and ECGs. Following the DALI identification and commissioning the actual ETS application with parameter settings and group addresses still has to be downloaded onto the device. After leaving the parameter page, this is done via the usual ETS download process. 7.2.3ECGandlampfaultsduringDALIcommissioningin‘ExtendedMode‘
During the commissioning lamps/ECGs are identified visually (ON, OFF, blinking). It is therefore crucial that all lamps and ECGS operate correctly. If the gateway identifies a lamp or ECG fault during the installation process, the ECG concerned is highlighted in a different colour. A red flag indicates an ECG fault and a yellow flag a lamp fault. Faults are displayed both for non‐identified devices (right table) and for ECGs that have already been assigned (middle table). As the table view is not automatically updated and as it may take a few minutes for the DALI gateway to recognise a fault, we recommend that you press the ‘Sync‘ button a short while after the installation. This ensures that the displayed status corresponds to the actual status and any faults that may have been detected in the meantime are displayed correctly. Attention: If an ECG fault already exists during the search process of the initial installation, the device may not be detected at all. This means that the number of ECGs found does not correspond to the number that was expected. ECG faults are only displayed in the manner described above if the ECG concerned has been previously programmed and is known to the gateway. 43

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 7.2.4UsingdummyECGsin‘ExtendedMode‘
There may be cases in which a DALI installation or a DALI segment needs to be commissioned even if not all of the planned lights are yet physically present (e.g. if a room is not yet finished or a light has not been delivered). During the teach‐in process only the actually existing devices are detected and entered into the list of non‐identified devices. This means that only those devices can be moved into the configuration table and commissioned as a real device. Entries for devices that are planned but do not yet exist remain empty in the configuration table. These devices can be programmed, identified and assigned later on during a post‐installation (see below) once the whole installation is complete. As long as an entry remains empty, the gateway assumes that no ECG exists and does not generate an error message. However, it may be desirable that an error message for a planned device is generated, even if the device is not yet present (for example to visualise an incomplete installation). The plug‐in offers the possibility to add dummy ECGs to the list of non‐identified devices. This special option is not set up by default. To use this option, please go to ‘Tools‘  ‘Options‘ to activate it. Once it has been activated, an additional ‘Dummy+‘button appears in the parameter window. Use this button to add dummy ECGs to the list of non‐identified ECGs. Dummy ECGs are marked with a symbol and can be dragged into the ECG configuration in the same way as normal ECGs. Once the DALI data has been downloaded, the gateway assumes that an ECG exists and therefore presents an ECG fault in the visualisation and the respective communication object. 44

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 ECGs that have been created through a dummy entry are shown with a grey background in the ECG configuration list (see above). The dummy ECGs are only used as a temporary solution in an unfinished installation. The ‘post‐
installation‘ that is required once the whole installation is complete, deletes all dummy entries from both the ECG configuration table and from the list of non‐identified devices. 7.3GeneralextrafunctionsintheETS
The functions described in the following chapters can be used both in ‘Normal Mode‘ and in ‘Extended Mode‘. 7.3.1UsingIPforplug‐incommunication
By default, the plug‐in communicates with the DALI gateways via the KNX‐Bus. However, if the gateway is integrated into an IP network and a correct IP address has been assigned (DHCP or fixed setting in the ETS) IP communication can also be used. This increases the speed of loading and communication processes greatly. To use IP communication, enter the correct IP address of the gateway in the IP field at the top and tick the box in front of the field. You can also import the IP address via the ‘Read IP Address‘ button. If you press the button, the correct IP address of the current device is automatically entered in the address field. Please remember that when IP communication is enabled (by ticking the box), the plug‐in communicates with the gateway always via the address entered. A wrong manual entry may lead to a wrong gateway being contacted. Therefore please make sure that the IP address is correct. If the IP communications box is ticked but an IP connection is not possible (wrong IP address, no network connection), the plug‐in will still try to make the connection via IP. However, it recognises by itself that this is not possible and automatically changes to KNX communication. IP communication can be used both in ‘Normal Mode‘ and ‘Extended Mode‘. 45

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 7.3.2Parametertemplates
The DaliControl IP Gateway gives you the possibility to create your own parameter templates thereby making the time‐consuming parameter setting for individual groups or ECGs much easier. Parameter templates can be generated for all parameters of the entire gateway and for individual ECGs and groups. Once you have completely set the parameters for a standard ECG, simply press the Export function in the Files menu or click on the right mouse button to export them as an xml file. If you would like another ECG to have the same parameter properties, simply select the ECG and import the exported file into the new ECG. The file serves as a template for other ECGs. You can also create templates at group level or for ‘General Properties‘. Creating templates for all ECG and group types and using this template library makes the configuration, especially in large installations, significantly easier. If you would like to re‐set individual ECG or group parameters or even a whole gateway to their original status, please use the files that have been provided with the product: ● default_device.xml ● default_ecg.xml ● default_group.xml 46

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 7.3.3DALIconfigurationdataback‐up
The configuration data and parameters set in the ETS are automatically saved in the ETS database after each change. They can be easily downloaded onto a new device at any time. However, the DALI configuration data, such as the DALI long address, is not part of the normal ETS application. To back‐
up the DALI configuration data, please use the back‐up function in the Files menu. The backup function exports the current real configuration from the gateway and saves it as an xml file. Attention: The DALI configuration data in the ETS is also updated during a back‐up. Any changes that were made in the ETS but that have not yet been downloaded onto the gateway (planning only), are therefore overwritten during a back‐up. If you need to exchange a device, you can load the backed‐up data onto a new device via Restore. Backup – Restore gives you the opportunity of a simple device exchange without the time‐consuming post‐installation. We therefore strongly recommend that you create a back‐up and save the data after completing the parameter settings. 47

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 8.DALImaintenanceandexpansion
8.1QuickexchangeofindividualECGs
When a DALI segment is commissioned, the short address, group assignment (if applicable) and other configuration data are programmed onto the ECG’s internal memory. If you had to replace an ECG because of a fault, you would normally need to program this data onto the new device. The DaliControl IP Gateway, however, offers a function that makes it possible to quickly and easily replace individual ECGs. You can start the “ECG quick exchange“ function either on the device itself (pushbuttons, display) or via the web browser if you log in as administrator (see above). The gateway first checks if any of the configured ECGs that are known to it have been reported as faulty. Then the segment is searched for new, unknown devices. If a new device is found, all configuration details of the old ECG are automatically programmed onto the new one and the installation is immediately ready for operation. However, the ECG quick exchange only works if just one ECG within a segment is faulty and replaced by a new one. If several devices are faulty, the ECGs have to be identified and you must use the post‐
installation function. Please also remember that the quick exchange is only possible for devices of the same type. You cannot, for example, replace an ECG for self‐contained battery emergency lamps with a device for LEDs. If a quick exchange is not possible, the gateway terminates the process with an error code. The different error codes have the following meaning: Error type 7: No ECG failure Error type 8: More than one ECG failure Error type 9: No new ECG can be found Error type 10: ECG has wrong device type Error type 11: More than one new ECG 48

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 8.2Extendingtheexistingsystem–post‐installation
If you would like to enlarge an already commissioned DALI segment with new ECGs or would like to replace several faulty ones, please use the „post‐installation“ function. You can carry out the post‐
installation both on the device (pushbuttons, display) and via the web browser if you log in as administrator (see above). If you use the ETS in ‘Extended Mode‘ (Mode B), you can also load the post‐installation in the ETS via the menu ’Tool‘  ’post‐installation’. When you start the installation, the gateway first checks if all previously configured ECGs are still available in the segment. ECGs that no longer exist or cannot be found are deleted from the gateway’s internal memory. Then the segment is searched for new ECGs. Newly found devices are inserted into any existing gaps or added on at the end. (Attention: Please remember that the maximum number of ECGs within a segment is 64!) As the position (short address) of a newly found device is allocated randomly, you need to identify the lights and if required assign them to groups. If you are using the ETS in ‘Normal Mode‘, you need to re‐synchronise the ETS so that communication objects and parameters for the newly added ECGs are shown and the configuration can be completed. However, synchronising the ETS is only necessary if the structure of the segment has been changed by the post‐installation process (enlargement of the system or different device types). If the purpose of the post‐installation was merely re‐configuration after an ECG replacement, synchronisation is not required. In the ETS setting ‘Extended Mode‘ all parameters and objects are visible. This means that you only need to identify and assign the devices that were newly found during the post‐installation followed by a DALI download and possibly an ETS application download. 49

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 9.Differentoperatingmodes
9.1Normalmode
In normal mode, ECGs can be dimmed and switched without restrictions both via individual and group control. The control of each ECG and each group is based on three communication objects (switching, dimming, value setting). Please remember that ECGs, once they have been assigned to a group, are no longer available for individual control. An ECG can only be assigned to a single DALI group. The DaliControl IP Gateway does not support multi‐group assignments on DALI level. If such assignment is required, please use KNX communication objects for this purpose. At group level, an additional enable/disable object is available to disable the control via the three communication objects. Separate status objects inform about the switch and value status both at group and individual ECG level. 9.2Permanentmode
If you would like to run an individual ECG or a whole group permanently with a certain light value, (e.g. a permanently lit corridor or workshop) you can choose the permanent mode option. The ECG or group are automatically set to the required value after you program or switch on the gateway. Switch and dim objects remain hidden. Light status, error and service functions, however, are also available in permanent mode. Should a device in this mode not be running at the pre‐set light level because of a special operation (e.g. identification process on the device display) or fault (e.g. ECG was without power when the gateway was started) the light level is automatically corrected after 60 seconds. 9.3Staircasemode
The staircase mode is only available for groups. In this mode, the value set via a switch, dim or value telegram is automatically changed to the switch off value after a programmable time. The lights can be switched off immediately or in 2 steps (within a minute) or through dim‐down (within a minute). In staircase mode, each additionally received telegram re‐starts the internal timer. The lights switch off when the timer runs out after the most recently received telegram. The staircase mode can be disabled or enabled via an additional object. If the staircase mode is disabled, the group behaves like in normal mode and does not automatically switch off. If the mode is disabled whilst the switch‐off timer is already running, the timer stops and the group remains at the currently set value If the mode is enabled again, the timer starts again from the beginning. 9.4Night‐timemode
Night‐time mode is available both at group and ECG level. The night‐time mode corresponds largely to the staircase mode. The only difference is that the automatic switch‐off is dependent on the central night object of the gateway. If the night object is not set (day), the group behaves as in normal mode. If the object is set (night), the ECG or group either switches off after a programmable time or it goes into permanent mode. 50

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 9.5Panic/emergencymode
The panic or emergency mode can be activated via a central object for the whole gateway. All ECGs/ groups that have been enabled for panic mode, permanently switch to a programmable panic light value on receipt of the object. They can no longer be controlled individually. When the panic mode is switched off, the devices return to the previous light value or the switch on / switch off value and can again be controlled individually. 9.6Testmodeforcentralbatteryemergencyluminaires
Through its internal function the DaliControl IP Gateway supports installations with central battery emergency luminaires. Any ECG (except for those of the self‐contained battery type) can be configured as an emergency light. You can choose a test time between 15 minutes and 4 hours. If the gateway receives the central battery test object, the respective lights change to a programmable value for this time period. They can no longer be switched or dimmed via the corresponding objects. The discharge time and capacity of the central battery can thereby be tested under pre‐defined conditions. So that individual ECGs within a group can no longer be switched via group telegrams or scenes, the group assignment is dissolved for the duration of the test mode. When the test has finished, groups and scenes are automatically re‐programmed onto the ECGs. Should the gateway lose power during the test mode, the un‐programmed devices are marked and automatically programmed on return of the power supply. The test mode, however, does not continue. It has to be re‐started. When the test mode terminates normally, the devices return to the previous light value or the switch on / switch off value and can again be controlled individually. 9.7Burn‐inmode
For optimum operation and to achieve the quoted life span, many lights require that a specific burn‐
in time be adhered to during their first use. During the burn‐in phase lights must not be switched or dimmed but need to run continually at 100% capacity. This burn‐in phase can be carried out automatically with the DaliControl IP Gateway. Each ECG can be individually set to the burn‐in mode via a further object. During the burn‐in, switch and dim telegrams for the device are ignored. This also applies when the ECG is assigned to a group. So that individual ECGs within a group can no longer be switched via group telegrams or scenes, the group assignment is dissolved for the duration of the burn‐in mode. When the burn‐in has finished, groups and scenes are automatically re‐
programmed onto the ECGs. Should the gateway lose power during burn‐in mode, the un‐
programmed devices are marked and automatically programmed on return of the power supply. The burn‐in mode, however, does not continue. It has to be re‐started. When the burn‐in mode finishes normally, the devices return to the previous light value or the switch on / switch off value and can again be controlled individually. 51

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 The burn‐in mode is usually started manually after each light change. This useful maintenance function can be operated via the device display to ensure that it can be performed by maintenance personnel independent of the ETS or KNX.

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 9.8Operatingmodehierarchy
Some of the individual operating modes described above have higher functions and roles for the operation of the system as a whole. A prioritisation or hierarchy of operating modes is therefore required. The burn‐in mode has the highest priority. If an ECG is in burn‐in mode, it cannot be changed into any other mode. The next hierarchy level is the central battery test mode. If the device is in this mode, it can only go into burn‐in mode but not into any subordinate operating modes. Below the test mode is the panic/emergency mode. From this mode the device can change to both the burn‐in mode and the test mode. The permanent, normal and night‐time modes have the same priority level at the bottom of the hierarchy. 53

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 10Analysisandservicefunctions
10.1Recordingoperatinghours
The DaliControl IP Gateway allows for the operating hours (burning time) of each lamp to be internally recorded to the second. The value is available externally (communication objects, web site, display on the device) in hours with the internal value in seconds always being rounded. (e.g. 7199 seconds  1 h, 7201 seconds  2h) The recording of operating hours is independent of the dim value. This means any light value > 0% contributes to an increase in the operating hours. The counter can be re‐set (when the light is changed). To reset the counter, the value 0 is written on the communication object or alternatively you can use the website or the display and pushbuttons on the device. A maximum value can be configured for each ECG (light life span), which activates an alarm object on the KNX bus or an entry on the website. This information can be used for maintenance purposes. 10.2IndividualfaultrecognitionatECGlevel
A major advantage of DALI technology is the individual recognition of light failure or ECG failure. The DaliControl IP Gateway supports this function completely and also offers numerous analytical possibilities. For the analysis, the DaliGateway scans all connected ECGs periodically for ECG, light and (in the case of self‐contained battery lamps) converter failures. The scanning time can be configured. If the time is 1 second (standard setting), and 64 ECGs are connected, the complete process of scanning for ECG and light failure takes 128 seconds (1 second per ECG and type of failure). It can therefore take up to about 2 minutes before a fault that has occurred is recognised. For each ECG a communication object is available to send the information to the KNX bus (1Bit or 1 Byte object). In addition, the failure status of all ECGs is displayed clearly on the gateway’s website. 54

If ECGs and / or converters are merged into groups, numerous group‐specific fault data is available in addition to the (also still available) individual ECG data. For this purpose three different communication objects are available for each group. In addition to general information such as whether there is a failure within a group and of what type, the complete number of faulty devices within the group and the failure rate can be listed via a communication object. An alarm object is sent when a certain failure rate is exceeded. A complex object with a summary of the data further adds to the analysis options. For details of group‐specific communication objects, please see the communication objects description below. The group information is also displayed on the web site of the integrated web server: 56

Fault analysis objects similar to those at group level are also available at device level (i.e. for all ECGs connected to the gateway). The failure rate or number of ECG failures in the whole DALI segment can be made available via communication objects. Unlike at group level, at device level the percentage and number of failures can be broken down further according to type of failure. The alarm threshold for the failure rate can be individually set for ECG, light and converter failure. For further details regarding the communication objects, please see the communication objects description below. As before, the fault information for the entire gateway is displayed on the web site: 57

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 11Scenesandeffects
11.1Thescenesmodule
The DaliControl IP Gateway enables the programming and invoking of up to 16 internal light scenes. A scene is invoke via a 1Byte scene object. This object can also be used to save scenes (Bit 7 set). The currently set value is saved as scene value. In principle, a scene can consist of group and individual ECGs (as long as these have not been assigned to a group). To assign a group to a scene or to delete a group from a scene, use the pushbuttons and display on the device or the website. If you are using the ETS in ‘extended Mode‘, you can also set and assign scenes via ETS. You cannot assign individual ECGs to scenes only by using the pushbuttons and display. By default, the programmed scene is started immediately without dim time. If you want to dim into a scene, you can set a dim time for each scene. The time can only be set on the website. Please remember that the entry refers to the dim time from 0 to 100%. If invoking a scene leads to a change from 50% to 100% with a set time of 20 seconds, the dimming process takes only 10 seconds. Switching an individual group (or ECG) from the scene whilst a scene is already in the dimming process, only affects the particular group. The other groups continue the dimming process. Please remember to use the DALI command for scene addressing only when you invoke a scene without dimming. Dimmed scenes must be started at DALI level via short or group addresses. Scenes that have been assigned a large number of groups or ECGs should therefore be used without dim time to prevent irregular dimming. 58

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 You can enter a user‐friendly name for each scene in the description field underneath the scenes. If you do not want a scene to start immediately but would prefer dimming it up to its final value (see above), you can set the dimming time individually for each scene. Once all scene values have been set and assigned, you need to download the scene onto the DALI gateway. For this purpose, please press the download button in the bottom right‐hand corner. In principal you can also use ETS to plan individual scenes ‘offline‘, independently of the DALI system. The plug‐in only has to be connected to the gateway for the duration of the download. 11.2Theeffectmodule
In addition to light scenes, the DaliControl IP Gateway also allows for the use of effects. An effect is a sequence control of light values in different groups or ECGs. The individual light values can be triggered immediately or dimmed via a dim value. Please remember that the entry relates to a dim time from 0 to 100% (see scene module above). With the DaliControl IP Gateway you can create 16 independent effects. A 1 Byte object is used to start and stop an effect. To start an effect, set Bit 7 in the object. If the object is received with Bit 7 being deleted, the effect stops. Altogether 500 effect steps can be programmed. They can be distributed arbitrarily across the 16 effects. A delay can also be programmed as an effect step. 61

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 11.2.1Effectprogrammingusingtheeffectswebsite
You can set and program effects via the server website which can be accessed via the effects tab at the bottom of the site: To program an effect, select it first from the effect block at the bottom of the page. (If the effect has been previously programmed, the corresponding effect steps are displayed in the Effect Editor on the right hand side of the page.) Use the function buttons in the Effect Editor to add or remove steps or delays. You can select the target group or individual ECG for each step as well as the final dim value and delay from the drop down menus. If you insert a delay as an effect step, the effect control will pause until the next step is executed. You can thereby create a list with the entire sequence control for each effect. . Each step can also be repeated in a continuous loop. To do so, please tick the Effect loop mode box above the list. If an effect runs in continuous mode, it is repeated until it is stopped either via the communication object or by pressing a button on the website. 62

If you are using ETS in ‘extended Mode‘ (Mode B), you can program effects in ETS. Go to the Effects page and select the required effect from the directory on the left‐hand side. Move the groups and individual ECGs which are needed for this effect from the directory on the right‐hand side into the field in the middle using drag‐and‐drop. The order of the entries corresponds to the order of the individual effect steps. You can also use drag‐and‐drop to move the delay times into the table and to change the order of items within the list. Use the fields ‘Value‘ and ‘Time‘ to set the final value to which you would like to dim a group or ECG as well as the dimming time for each effect step. If you are setting a delay, the entry in the ‘Time‘ colum shows the length of the delay. Use the descriptions field underneath the effect steps to enter a user‐friendly name for each effect. Tick the ‘Repeating‘ box if you would like the selected effect to run continuously. Once the table of effect steps is complete, you need to download the effect onto the DALI gateway. For this purpose, please press the download button in the bottom right‐hand corner. In principal you can also use ETS to plan individual effects ‘offline‘, independently of the DALI system.

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 12Self‐containedbatteryemergencylamps
The DaliControl IP Gateway supports control gears used to run self‐contained battery emergency lights (device type 1 in accordance with EN 62386‐202). Such devices contain a battery which can supply the light with power in case of a general power failure. 12.1Features
Principally a distinction is made between switchable and non‐switchable devices for self‐contained battery lamps. A switchable device can be directly connected to a lamp just like a ‘normal’ ECG. In normal mode the light (usually an LED) can be switched and dimmed via DALI. Emergency lights with switchable ECGs therefore require only 1 DALI device. The standard switch parameters and objects are available for these devices. In contrast to the ’switchable‘ device, a ’non‐switchable‘ device (converter) can only control the connected lamp in an emergency. To use the same lamp in normal mode (switching, dimming), a second, ‘normal‘ ECG is required. These lights are therefore called emergency lights with 2 DALI devices. The two ECGs make a device pair. ‘Non‐switchable‘ devices use the DALI communication to query the device status and to initiate mandatory test phases. As these devices cannot switch or dim themselves, there are no parameters or objects for switch behaviour available for these devices. During both new and post‐installation the DaliControl IP Gateway recognises automatically, whether the connected device is a ‘switchable’ or ‘non‐switchable’ ECG. However, because of the DALI structure with its random assignment of short addresses, the pairing of a ‘normal‘ device with a ’non‐
switchable‘ device does not occur automatically. It has to be performed manually on the parameter page in ETS. The assignment is crucial for fault analysis purposes as ‘non‐switchable‘ devices usually share the connected lamp with a ‘normal’ device. Without the assignment, a lamp failure may be double‐
counted. In addition, the ‘normal’ ECG in a pair is usually automatically disconnected from the power supply when the emergency light is tested. This loss of function generates an ECG failure. However, by making a pair, the gateway recognises automatically, whether a real ECG failure has occurred or whether the corresponding converter has simply been tested. Only real ECG failures are taken into consideration for alarm and analysis purposes. Please remember that both the pairing and the fact that the power of the ‘normal ECG’ is switched off by the emergency light ECG in test mode mean that any burn‐in mode of these ECGs is interrupted. To identify the converters after installation, a function test starts for ‘non‐switchable‘ ECGs. The process takes a few seconds. During this process the status LED on the converter flashes (see function description of the respective converter). As these devices cannot switch the connected lamp themselves, the normal identification process through switch on/ switch off is not possible. The identification therefore needs to occur via the LED. 65

Technical Manual Dali Control IP Gateway SCN‐DALI64.02 12.2Converterinhibitmode
Self‐contained battery emergency lamps always change into emergency mode if there is a power supply failure. The lamp is now operated by the internal battery. However, it may become necessary at times to cut off the power supply, for example during maintenance work or the initialisation phase of a building. To prevent the lights from switching into emergency mode, the converters can be disabled via the pushbuttons and display on the device (see above). This converter inhibit mode is only available for all connected devices at the same time. If the power supply is turned off within 15 minutes after activating the mode, the connected lights do not change into emergency mode and the lights remain switched off. When the power resumes, the lights return to normal. If the 15 minutes run out without a power loss, all converters are automatically re‐set to normal mode. 12.3Testmode
The DaliControl IP Gateway supports mandatory tests for self‐contained battery emergency lamps. Attention: The legal regulations and norms vary in different countries. Please make sure that you comply with all country‐specific requirements. The DaliControl IP Gateway supports functional tests, long duration tests and battery tests. Functional and long duration tests can be started externally via KNX telegrams (1 Byte telegrams, see below)or via the device website. Alternatively you may choose to set automatic test intervals. This means tests are performed automatically via the connected converters. (Please check the converter description for the exact function.) Battery tests can be performed individually at any time. However, they are also part of a functional or long duration test. After a test has been completed, the test results are available on the KNX bus via communication objects and they may be recorded in the visualisation. The corresponding 3 Byte object is updated with the test result and automatically sent after every new test. The object can be queried at any time. The object provides the result of the last test. In addition to the latest test result the object also displays the current status (test pending, test running). Attention: Please remember that the object is only updated with the latest test result once the test has been completed. If a test is started and the object is queried before the test is complete (which can be seen from the status flag “test pending” or “test running) the test result shown is that of the previously completed test. 66
