DALI Protocol Decoding and Analysis

Pico dali29 August 2019 - Pico Technology has added DALI decoding and analysis with the latest version of PicoScope 6 software. DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) provides two-way communications between lighting fixtures (“luminaires”), ballasts and controllers. A DALI controller can talk to individual LED drivers and ballasts, and those devices can in turn talk back to the controller to report light failures, energy consumption, ambient light conditions and so on.

Trevor Smith, Business Development Manager at Pico Technology, noted, “Networked DALI devices are at the heart of modern buildings management. Engineers and systems integrators developing modules and deploying DALI networks need tools to rapidly identify timing and signal integrity problems when they occur. PicoScope DALI decoder provides clear display of the data communications flow, and easy correlation with the waveform of frame errors due to signal integrity issues.”

The decoder is included as standard with PicoScope 6.4.14 and is available to download free of charge. It is compatible with PicoScope 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 and 6000 Series PC-based Test & Measurement oscilloscopes.
