The ABB KNX DALI Gateway with Emergency Lighting Function DGN/S 1.16.1 is a KNX modular installation device (MDRC) in Pro M- design for installation in the distribution board on 35 mm mounting rails. 

The DGN/S integrates operating devices with DALI interfaces to EN 62386 into a KNX building installation. The connection to the KNX Bus is implemented via a KNX connection terminal on the device shoulders. 

The DALI output of the DGN/S can be used to connect up to 64 DALI devices. It can also exclusively contain 64 DALI  devices for self-contained emergency lighting compliant to EN 6286-202. Both normal lamps as well as battery operated emergency lighting can be connected in a mixed configuration to the DGN/S 1.16.1. Control of the lamps via KNX is undertaken by 16 lighting groups, which can be comprised of any 64 DALI  lamps. An individual project-related DALI device group assignment is  possible using the DALI-Software-Tool. 

The fault status (lamps, ballasts or emergency light converter) of every individual DALI device or of the lighting group is sent via different KNX communication objects on the KNX.

In addition to the standard functions, e.g. switching, dimming and brightness value setting with the corresponding feedbacks, the DGN/S has the functions Staircase lighting, Scene, Sequence and Slave. The lighting groups can be integrated in this way into a constant lighting control.

Function, duration and partial duration tests and battery tests for the emergency lighting systems with individual batteries to EN 62386-202 can be triggered and stopped via KNX. The test results are made available on the KNX. All DALI devices can be controlled together in KNX mode as well as manual mode. 

The DGN/S is a DALI  control device (master) and requires an AC or DC auxiliary power supply. A  separate DALI power supply is not required. The DALI power source for  the 64 DALI devices is integrated into the DGN/S.
