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.Courtesy of Forum Groningen: featuring over 1000 tunable white luminaires using eldoLED’s DALI-2 DT8 compliant technology. Precise calibration of color and intensity at the driver level makes all the difference in a tunable white installation.

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.

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.

eldoLED will demonstrate the full capabilities and advantages of DT8 at Light+Building in Frankfurt on March 9-13, 2020 and at LEDucation in New York City the following week. For further information, please contact a local eldoLED sales representative.
