RP-C-EXT-DALI-M-PD – DALI light module


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

The DALI light module enables power supply and control of lights equipped with DALI ballasts (DALI control gear).

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.

Lighting can be controlled by the RP controller through motion detection and light intensity measurement provided by the Multi-sensor or Insight-Sensor, or by SpaceLogic Sensors connected to the RP controller.

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.


The DALI light module has the following features:

  • Power and communications through the room bus

  • DALI-2 certified control device (application controller)

  • DALI multi-master function for communication with DALI sensors and push-buttons on the DALI bus, which minimizes wiring and installation costs

  • Group and individual addressing of DALI control gear (lights)

  • One DALI channel, which is split into four inputs/outputs (terminals), for DALI bus power supply and control of up to 32 lights and 16 input devices (the maximum number of lights and input devices per input/output is determined by the maximum inrush current)

  • Up to 16 DALI groups for common control of lights

  • Up to 16 DALI input devices in total. Each input device supports up to four sensors or buttons.

  • Simplified commissioning support for DALI lights connected to the same terminal

  • Energy saving by automatic disconnection of power to DALI drivers/ballasts when all lights on the same terminal are off

  • Support for on/off (relay) control of non-DALI lights on terminals not used for DALI lighting control

  • Four digital inputs for connection of light switches and window contacts. The digital inputs are SELV (Safety Extra-Low Voltage).

  • Measurement of energy consumption per module

  • Suitable for mounting in ceilings

  • Wieland connectors for quick and easy installation

  • Engage mobile application for room comfort settings

  • Status LED for the device

  • One status LED for each DALI input/output

  • Rotary switch for address configuration

DALI lighting control

The DALI inputs/outputs are connected to the power supply network through the DALI light module. For the DALI bus wires, you may use the standard installation equipment permitted for ELV (Extra-Low Voltage) installations. The DALI bus meets SELV (Safety Extra-Low Voltage) requirements.

The DALI-2 interface has the following features:

  • DALI groups can combine lights regardless of which outputs the lights belong to.

  • Lights that belong to the same DALI group are controlled simultaneously for switching on/off, dimming, and color temperature (tunable white) adjustment

  • Management of ballast and lamp alarms

  • Automatic addressing of lights

Simplified commissioning support

By using a DALI channel group, you can control all DALI lights connected to the same input/output (terminal) as one logical light, which simplifies and speeds up the commissioning process.

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.

The RP-C Pro and RP-C Pro Plus controller room bus supports up to nine connected RP controller expansion modules with the following restrictions:

  • Maximum of two DALI light modules

  • Maximum of two SMI blind modules

  • Maximum of seven Multi-sensor or Insight-Sensor devices

The RP-C Advanced controller room bus supports up to six connected RP controller expansion modules with the following restrictions:

  • Maximum of two DALI light modules

  • Maximum of two SMI blind modules

  • Maximum of four Multi-sensor or Insight-Sensor devices

The RP-V Advanced controller room bus supports up to four connected RP controller expansion modules with the following restrictions:

  • Maximum of one DALI light module

  • Maximum of one SMI blind module

  • Maximum of two Multi-sensor or Insight-Sensor devices

Maximum total length of the room bus is 72 m (236 ft).

Engage mobile application

The Engage mobile application enables control of room temperature, fan speed, lights, and blinds/shades directly from a smartphone. A user can manage these settings when the application is connected to the RP controller.

The Engage mobile application is free and available for download from Google Play and Apple App Store.
