The DALI Alliance, the global industry organisation for DALI lighting control, is set to present two showcase seminars at LightFair 2022, a major trade show and conference for architectural and commercial lighting taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Centre on June 21-23. The seminars will focus on two hot topics within the lighting control arena – smart lighting with D4i-enabled luminaires, and the benefits of the Zhaga-D4i ecosystem – delivered by eminent experts in the field. The DALI Alliance will also be present on Booth 2371 at the exhibition, from where it will set out how this open, global consortium of lighting companies is helping to grow the market for lighting-control solutions based on DALI-2 and D4i.

On Wednesday June 22 at 11:00-12:00, the DALI Alliance will deliver a seminar on smart lighting with D4i-enabled luminaires, exploring energy reporting, asset management, predictive maintenance and more. D4i, which is part of DALI-2 certification, brings long-awaited plug-and-play standardization for smart luminaires. A key capability in use today is power monitoring for energy savings, and D4i also stores asset information, diagnostics data, and identifies failure modes of the power source, LED driver, and LED array. This seminar will demonstrate the benefits of D4i data using real-world application examples.

Three experienced industry speakers from Signify, Synapse Wireless and Georgia Power will talk about the basics of D4i and deliver a number of relevant use cases, including one for roadway lighting. At the end of the seminar, attendees will better understand the capabilities of D4i luminaires for smart lighting applications, and recognize the value of energy monitoring and compliance with DLC specifications. One AIA continuing education credit is available for this seminar.

On the preceding day, Tuesday June 21 at 3:30-4:30pm, the DALI Alliance and the Zhaga Consortium will give a joint seminar on standardized lighting and control interfaces for indoor and outdoor luminaires. This seminar will set out how the combination of Zhaga and D4i delivers plug-and-play options to the lighting world. The Zhaga-D4i ecosystem of lighting products enables smart, future-proof LED luminaires with IoT connectivity.

A trio of industry experts from Inventronics, Synapse and Zhaga will help seminar participants to identify the key benefits of Zhaga-D4i certification, and compare D4i requirements for drivers and control devices (nodes) with the ANSI C137.4 standard. Another aim of the session is helping those in attendance to recognize how to future-proof their luminaire designs and lighting installations.

Anyone interested in joining the growing number of designers and system integrators tapping into the benefits of lighting-control solutions based on DALI-2 and D4i are welcome to come and learn more, either at the seminars or at the DALI Alliance exhibition booth.
