Tridonic and ULT sign a licence agreement

American manufacturer uses patents for DALI devices


Dornbirn, January 9, 2012.  Tridonic and the US manufacturer Universal Lighting Technologies (ULT) have signed a licence agreement that allows ULT to use patented technologies to manufacture DALI control gear. The agreement has now come into force.

In 1991 Tridonic was the first manufacturer to launch digital dimmable electronic ballasts for fluorescent lamps. In doing so, the company laid the foundation for the development of the DALI standard (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) which is now valid throughout the world. Numerous products and basic patents for this standard, such as digital addressing and the digital interface with potential separation, are part of the Tridonic portfolio. In Europe Tridonic is considered a leading supplier in the digital lighting control sector.
