PRESS RELEASE – (November 10, 2016) – The Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA), an open, global consortium of lighting companies, has created a certification program that gives the assurance of interoperability for products using digital addressable lighting interface technology.
The independently-verified DiiA certification scheme covers interoperable lighting devices and systems with the functionality specified in the latest version of the IEC 62386 family of standards.
Digital addressable lighting interface technology, often referred to as DALI (which is a registered trademark of ZVEI), is a dedicated lighting-control protocol that has been widely used throughout the industry for a number of years.
Building on the success of DALI, the DiiA test and certification program incorporates the significant enhancements that can be found in the latest version of IEC 62386. This results in improved multi-vendor system interoperability. Also, coverage is extended to include control devices such as application controllers and input devices (e.g. such as sensors and switches).
