N-light & DALI... ...Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) is an open communication protocol developed by leading manufacturers within the lighting industry and defined under international standard IEC 62386. Originally developed for controllable lighting ballasts, the DALI protocol now encompasses a wide range of intelligent lighting technologies including the particular requirements for emergency lighting. DALI provides a simple, reliable and extremely robust means of communication for lighting systems whilst offering maximum flexibility and convenience for system designers, installers and end users. As a member of the AG DALI working group, Mackwell Electronics has established itself within the DALI community as world leaders in DALI emergency lighting products and this has enabled us to forge relationships with some of the biggest names in the lighting industry. Mackwell is also represented on the technical working group for the DALI standard and this allows us to be at the forefront of new developments and initiatives within AG DALI.

Why N-light...

Neutral conductor DALI (DA) Protective earth DALI (DA) Phase

Series connection

Star connection

Mixed connection topologies

SIMPLE WIRING

MULTIPLE TOPOLOGIES

FLEXIBLE GROUP CONTROL

No specialised data cable or tools are required for wiring to luminaires. The low data rate and high interference immunity of the DALI specification allows standard mains cable to be used (for example 5-core NYM cable).

N-light allows series, star or mixed connection topologies to be used for maximum flexibility in system design and installation. N-light additionally specifies the optional feature within the DALI specification for polarity-free connection of data wires, thereby minimising the chances of wiring errors.

As well as being addressed individually or altogether (broadcast), every device on the DALI system may belong to any of up to 16 group assignments. Group assignments can be used to apply emergency tests to predefined areas of a building, and can be re-configured at any time, for example, to accommodate changes in building usage without the need for re-wiring.

DETAILED STATUS REPORTING N-light provides a comprehensive picture of the historical and realtime status of the emergency lighting installation. Automatic status notifications are logged by the system whenever a fault or test failure is detected that could compromise the safety of the system. A full record of system status is available for hardcopy print at any time - N-light Net offering the additional option for full notification via SMS message or e-mail.

COMPLIANT FOR EMERGENCY LIGHTING International and national legislation and guidelines dictate that it is essential for emergency lighting to be specified, installed and maintained correctly. N-light is designed to work with Mackwell’s range of AT4 DALI emergency products to provide a straightforward route to compliance for the system designer with safety being the number one priority.

SAFETY BY DEFAULT As well as conforming to the DALI requirements of IEC 62386, all Mackwell AT4 DALI emergency products incorporate AutoTest as standard. This ensures that emergency luminaires adopt a default self-test programme complying with the requirements of IEC 62034 until a DALI bus is connected and a valid command is received. This aligns with the DALI control philosophy of “distributed intelligence” and allows the responsibility for overall control of the system to be allocated to specific components according to operating requirements.

DALI Compliant Products SmartCharge™

SMPS

SmartStart

FastStart®

Q-Start™

Each module equipped with Mackwell’s patented SmartCharge™ provides a full charge to the batteries for 16 hours, thereafter reducing to 10% to maintain charge level.

Products incorporating Mackwell SMPS technology (switched mode power supply) embody the most efficient electronic switching regulators.

SmartStart provides initial cathode heating to facilitate lamp striking.

Designed specifically for use with amalgam lamps and approved by the leading lamp and battery manufacturers, our patented technology eliminates all of the problems associated with striking amalgam lamps in emergency mode.

T5 lamps are particularly susceptible to cathode damage if they are not run correctly in emergency mode.

SmartCharge™ reduces energy consumption and reduces the operating temperature of NiMH batteries by up to 6ºC.

As a result these products cover a wider voltage range, reduce thermal operating temperatures, are more efficient, and are lighter and smaller in size. In addition modules with SMPS provide the correct charge regime for either NiCd or NiMH batteries.

When the lamp has struck, the heating is removed to maximise BLF.

Mackwell therefore ensures that your luminaire complies with BS EN 5266 and BS EN 60598.2.22.

The low power sources and simple control techniques associated with emergency lighting have traditionally dictated that emergency lamps are run outside manufacturers’ specifications. Q-StartTM provides the perfect solution, ensuring optimum start-up conditions to preserve lamp life. Q-Start™ is unique in providing an emergency solution that delivers lamp life comparable to that of mains ballasts.
