Piscataway, New Jersey, USA – The DALI Alliance has reached two important new milestones that demonstrate broad global support for the organisation and its certification programs. The number of certified DALI-2 products now exceeds 3,000 devices, and at the same time DALI Alliance’s membership has grown to 350 members.

The 3,000th DALI-2 product is the EUM-150S150ET LED driver from Inventronics. This product includes luminaire, energy and diagnostics data (Parts 251-3), which means that it can store luminaire information (typically encoded by the luminaire manufacturer) in one of the driver’s DALI memory banks, and can report operational diagnostic and energy usage data.

DALI-2 certification requires the product to successfully pass a rigorous and comprehensive set of tests based on the international standard IEC 62386. The DALI Alliance independently verifies the test results, and then lists each certified product in its online product database, providing public traceability. The database contains all certified DALI-2 and D4i components.

The 350th member is Leap Info Systems Pvt. Ltd., a lighting controls and automation technology company based in Pune, India, which has joined as an Associate member. Associate membership enables companies to participate in the DALI-2 certification program, and to use the DALI trademarks. To date, membership of the alliance consists of 35 Regular members, 267 Associate members and 51 Community members.

“We are grateful to all our members who support our certification programs, and we’re excited to continue driving standardization across the lighting industry,” said Paul Drosihn, General Manager of the DALI Alliance. “Our online database now contains a huge range of certified DALI-2 and D4i products, including LED drivers, sensors, application controllers and bus power supplies.”

Regular and Associate members of the DALI Alliance are all able to certify their DALI-2 and D4i products. In addition, Regular members can participate in Work Groups and contribute to the development of test sequences and new specifications.

Regular members are also eligible to sit on the DALI Alliance Board of Directors, which was recently expanded to include 9 member companies, reflecting the growing membership. The new Board was elected at the DALI Alliance virtual General Assembly meeting on 27th February. Existing Board members representing Helvar, Loytec, Lutron, Osram, Signify, Tridonic and Trilux have been joined by new members from LEDVANCE and Synapse Wireless.
