405 DALI Repeater offers new capabilities

Helvar's new DALI repeater, designed to extend a DALI subnet beyond the restriction of 300 metres of cabling and 250mA current limit.


Helvar has launched its new 405 DALI Repeater, a new product which is designed to extend a DALI subnet beyond the restriction of 300 metres of cabling and 250mA current limit. This is the most common limiting factor before reaching the 64 device limit, especially when using control devices such as sensors . The DALI repeater offers an alternative to adding additional routers by splitting into multiple DALI subnets, allowing for more flexibility with the installation.

The 405 DALI Repeater is easy to install, , and comes complete with an integral DALI power supply. It will also be available in two versions, a plastic enclosure with integral strain relief, suitable for ceiling voids, and a 2U DINrail enclosure. The LED status indicators offer clear and precise diagnostics.

There is no filtering of messages as DALI messages are passed bi-directionally and are invisible to devices on the subnet, without using a DALI short address.

“The 405 DALI Repeater offers a great alternative to adding additional routers to a lighting control system,” comments Andrew Glossop, Product Manager at Helvar. “This is a very useful way to support the increased capacity of 128 devices with DALI2”.
