LM5p-DW1 Dali 2 interface address
#1
Lightbulb 
I have LM5p-DW1 with two DALI ports. What is the DALI 2 interface address?

DALI-1 works fine with 'internal', but what about DALI-2? 

No information about DALI-2 in the manual.

You can use either int2 or internal2

Works great thanks!

In the user manual there is recommendation to use not more than 32 devices per DALI line.

I have project were i have to remove existing DALI server and shifting it to LM5. There are about 100 ballasts in the system and i'm planing to have 50 ballasts per line on LM. As build now the system is split in 4 lines 25 ballasts per line.

Does anyone have experience on having more than 32 device per line?
Or any tips to be aware of?

It depends on line length, topology and required functionality. In some cases with many ballasts together with star topology (worse kind because of reflected signals) you can only control ballasts but not read any data from them.

We use 64 ballasts on each line on other equipment. Works like a charm. On LM we have not tested Smile

How did this go? Have just ordered a LM5p-DW1 and are curious on the results Smile

Now I am preparing visualisation and scripts, next week I will start testing real system with LM Re:Actor3. Dali lines are connected through RS-485 to DALI interfaces, I have 6 such devices. Internal Dali port on LM I am not using, but I can try to test it and compare results. In my lines maximum ap 50 dali ballasts will be connected. With other DALI gateways no any problems with 64 connected ballasts. Of course it depends from topology.
