WAGO has added multi-sensors for the 753-647 Multi-Master I/O Module to its DALI product range in order to detect movement and brightness. The sensors are available in two versions: The first has a connection directly integrated into the DALI bus for mounting as well as for installation on ceilings and in recessed boxes. The second is a multi-sensor kit, consisting of a ceiling sensor, installation set, and a sensor coupler that functions as an interface with the DALI network.
The new presence and brightness sensors enable WAGO to offer one-stop shopping for its automation levels in the field of universal DALI lighting solutions. This user can therefore be certain that the components used will have unlimited compatibility with each other. This is in addition to the user-friendly configuration of the entire DALI network, which WAGO provides with the DALI Configurator graphical user interface.
Multi-Master Module with power supply
In addition to controlling 64 DALI actuators, the 753-647 DALI Multi-Master I/O Module supports the connection of up to 16 multi-sensors. This eliminates the need for installing a sensor-only parallel bus. Reduced installation time and clearer network structure help increase DALI operational efficiency.
A 12 mm-wide 750 Series module provides 200 mA power supply to each DALI module. Generally, a single controller operates several DALI modules within a project. WAGO has developed a cost-effective solution for this: An external 230 V DIN 35-rail mounted power supply (787-1007) provides an output current of 1100 mA. Up to five modules can be supplied in parallel in its full configuration.
The DALI Configurator graphic parameter interface expedites and simplifies commissioning and management of DALI networks. The software’s most prominent features are a simplified project overview, optimized device addressing, efficient batch processing and comprehensive functions for data backup and restoring (backup & restore). In addition, an “easy mode” can control the most varying switching and dimming functions and light scenes within the network solely through control of digital data points — for devices and groups alike. This enables DALI lights to be controlled without any complex programming.
