eldoLED Releases Industry’s First DiiA Certified DALI-2 DT8 Tc Drivers

Feb. 13, 2020

A Single Driver for Color Control, System Interoperability and Quality of Light for Use in LED Lighting Systems

ATLANTA, GA and SON, NL – February 13, 2020  Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) today announced that eldoLED®, a world leader in designing and manufacturing intelligent drive solutions for LED-based lighting systems, has received the first Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) certification for DALI Device Type 8 (DT8) color type Tc drivers.

Drivers using the DT8 protocol, also known as DALI 209, can use a single DALI short address to control two or more outputs. This can yield cost, space and manpower savings for LED system installations when using both RGB/W color changing and tunable white driver technology (DT8) within one fixture. This technology allows the end user to change the light color, color temperature and intensity of LEDs in a room or across a lighting system.

“eldoLED is the first in the industry to receive a DiiA certification for these types of drivers, marking a significant technology advancement for using DALI to specify and control color in LED modules,” said Gilles Abrahamse, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President of Digital Luminaire Components.

“DT8 certification is the culmination of eldoLED’s latest effort to elevate color science and is a significant step forward in our quest to bring digital solutions to market, simplify solution development, and drive the quality of light in LED systems,” said Chad Stalker, Vice President Global OEM Marketing and Sales. “Reducing the number of addresses simplifies design and commissioning as evidenced during eldoLED’s Groningen installation.”

Use of the DT8 driver technology is certified in the DUALdrive 562 and 20W LED driver models from eldoLED. Other DUALdrive products and certain LINEARdrive products are currently in the DT8 certification process. eldoLED drivers are interoperable with many LED systems.
