How to program DALI in 6 easy steps:
The USB to DALI Interface Device (UDID) provides the ability to do 3 things:
Don't have your UDID (Red Box) yet?

Contact your local electrical wholesaler and quote part#:
When connected correctly the 2 green LED indicator lights atop the device-face indicate that the DALI line is connected and powered.
When the USB cable is connected to the UDID and to a PC the USB indicator light is illuminated.
The DALI communication indicator blinks when DALI communications occur.
Remember, if this is the 1st time you have plugged your UDID into the PC you are using it will automatically install a device driver. This can take a few minutes depending on your PC configuration and your Windows device will notify you that this is happening and when it has completed the process.
Only after the device driver has installed will the UDID work with your PC and the RAPIX Addressing software.

Check the Dr. DALI forum post here for information on using the UDID with Lunatone Cockpit software and Tridonic Master Configurator.
As many of these other systems are using DALI gateways to MAP their protocol to DALI, and not all of them may be DALI compliant, any changes you make in a DALI (UDID) environment may or may not affect their mapping.
However as the UDID communicates in a DALI compliant message format, it allows for the easy DALI short addresses, re-short addressing, DALI grouping and DALI scene setup, and control of DALI Compliant drivers and ballasts without affecting any of the other 3rd party system gateways.
As each of these systems has a different but similar mapping topology, we cannot provide further generalised information.
