RP-C-EXT-DALI-M-PD

The RP-C-EXT-DALI-M-PD light module connects to the RP-C room controllers and provides I/O expansion for lighting control with DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface).

The DALI light module enables control of lights equipped with electronic ballasts, LED drivers, and other control gear with DALI interface as well as connection of DALI input devices such as sensors and push-buttons.

The power distribution capability means that the DALI light module can supply the connected control gear with AC mains voltage (230 VAC) from the module's power input.

The DALI light module is a DALI-2 certified control device (application controller) with multi-master capability. DALI-2 compliance means benefits such as improved interoperability and easier installation and maintenance. The DALI light module can be used with DALI version-1 products because DALI-2 is designed to be backward compatible with DALI version-1. The multi-master capability of the DALI light module allows the module to function as a DALI master in a DALI network and can thus work together with DALI-2 sensors and push-buttons.

The DALI light module is part of the RP controller expansion modules for connected room solution and can be combined with other modules from this product range.

DALI Inputs/Outputs with Power Distribution

The DALI light modules have four DALI inputs/outputs, which are designed for control and power supply of DALI light control gear such as lights with electronic ballasts, LED drivers, and other control gear with DALI interface as well as connection of DALI input devices such as sensors and push-buttons.

For more information, see DALI Inputs/Outputs with Power Distribution .

RP Controller Expansion Module Digital Inputs

The RP controller expansion modules have digital inputs that can be used for sensing of dry contacts:

  • The light modules, blind modules, and the RP-C-EXT-REL-4 relay module have four digital inputs, which can be used in applications such as interfacing with light switches and window contacts.

  • The CRS-HH-REL-10 relay module has 12 digital inputs suitable for dry contact monitoring of switches and push buttons used for lighting control, window and door positions, and other functions in the hotel room.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module Digital Inputs .

RP Controller Expansion Module Built-in Power Supply

The RP controller expansion light modules with power distribution capability, low-voltage blind modules, and SMI blind modules have a built-in power supply that can accommodate a nominal input voltage of 230 VAC at 50/60 Hz. Light modules without power distribution capability can accommodate a nominal input voltage of 100 to 277 VAC at 50/60 Hz.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module Built-in Power Supply .

RP Controller Expansion Module Energy Metering

RP controller expansion modules with power distribution capability support energy metering, which means that the module can measure the electrical energy consumption and power demand for the equipment connected to and supplied by the module.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module Energy Metering .

RP Controller Expansion Module Memory

RP controller expansion modules have two types of memory, flash memory and RAM.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module Memory .

DALI Light Module Supported Building Standards

The DALI light module complies to version 2 of the IEC 62386 standard (DALI-2).

For more information, see DALI Light Module Supported Building Standards .

RP Controller Expansion Module Communication Ports

The RP controller expansion modules have two room bus ports (RJ45 receptacles), which enable connection to the RP-C controller and other expansion modules on the room bus through a daisy-chain configuration.

For more information, see RP-C Room Bus .

RP Controller Expansion Module Address Switch

Each RP controller expansion module has a rotary switch, which is used to give the device a unique address on the room bus.

For more information, see RP-C Room Bus .

RP-C Room Bus

The RP controller room bus allows RP controller expansion modules to be connected to the controller for people counting, motion detection, luminosity and sound pressure level measurements, Bluetooth Low Energy based applications, and control of electric lights and window blinds.

For more information, see RP-C Room Bus .

RP Controller Expansion Module Pluggable Connectors

The RP controller expansion modules have PCB mounted connectors for the power input, outputs, and digital inputs. The PCB mounted connectors mate with pluggable connectors:

  • The light modules, blind modules, and the RP-C-EXT-REL-4 relay module have mechanically keyed and color-coded connectors, which allows the matching external connectors to be plugged in on site quickly and easily.

  • The CRS-HH-REL-10 relay module has PCB header connectors for pluggable screw terminal blocks, which are easy to install and remove from the device.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module Pluggable Connectors .

RP Controller Expansion Module LEDs

There is one or more LEDs on the front panel of the RP controller expansion modules.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module LEDs .

RP Controller Expansion Module Set Button

All RP controller expansion modules have a Set button on the front. The Set button is reserved for future use.

For more information, see RP Controller Expansion Module Set Button .

RP Controller Expansion Module Device Installation

The RP controller expansion module can be installed on a DIN rail or flat surface.
