I have googled a lot, and mostly every website you can link me I have already explored, some are outdated and don't work, others aren't clear in their documentation, and use equipment too expensive to run the risk of buying it and it not working.





Moreover, like any free protocol, you have to pay to access the DALI standard.

What can I do to control a network of connected DALI dimmable ballasts?

I have made a simple DALI controller with Arduino Nano. Maybe it will be useful for you. Look here: Simple DALI Controller

  • This tutorial is poetry! Amazing! Thanks! Is there a way to have it in PDF or any other offline mean (without the videos for ex.). This should be eternalized!

  • Hi, can you confirm that these resistors values are correct? How can you drop 12V to those voltages using that resistors? prntscr.com/e4guvx

  • Yes, you are right. It was a mistake. I have corrected. You need 2,2 and 3,3 kOhm resistors.
