BACnet DALI Lighting Controller

The DALION controller allows bidirectional communication between DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) and BACnet systems. It integrates many functionalities to ease the installation of the DALI lighting control system on BACnet networks.


Four DALI Channels

The DALION-4 model is equipped with four independent DALI channels. The DALION gateway can control up to 256 DALI devices. This is 64 devices with 16 groups and 16 scenes per channel.

BACnet support

The Ethernet interface is used to communicate with the BACnet/IP protocol. DALI channels, groups, lamps and scenes are accessible through BACnet standard objects such as; Analog Value, Analog Output, Analog Input.

Web Interface

A responsive web interface allows configuration and commissioning. The user interface is accessible on several electronic devices such as computers, iPhone, Android and tablets. Therefore, no special software is required.

DALI-2 Support

Can integrate up to 32 DALI-2 input devices (control devices) per DALI channel. Light sensors, occupancy sensors and buttons can be configured via the web interface and made accessible to BACnet.


The scheduler allows to controls the lights intensity at specific times.

Colour control

Support for DALI Type 8 (DT8) drivers with all four colour types: xy-coordinate, colour temperature Tc, primary N, or RGBWAF.

Integrated Ethernet switch

It incorporates a two-port Ethernet switch, allowing multiple DALION gateways to be daisy-chained.


Many counters are available to help with the diagnostic of network problems for the DALI, BACnet and Ethernet interfaces.

Compact Design & DIN rail

Compact design with DIN rail mount.

Web Interface

The web user interface adapts to all screen sizes. It allows modifying system settings as well as performing the DALI devices commissioning.


Adjustment of the light from warm white to daylight thanks to the compatibility with DALI Type 8 (DT8) drivers.


Adjusting RGB and other lights. Create scenes and recall colour settings.

Input Devices

Support for the integration of DALI-2 sensors and buttons.
