Light System DALI
Light Server 64+The Light Server 64+ is a DALI controller that stores system and scene data and provides the control functions. The compact design gives it great flexibility, which is important when choosing a mounting location. The ERCO Light Studio software is included with every Light Server. The DALI system can be configured by connecting a PC via USB or Ethernet. The Ethernet interface is also used to network several Light Servers or Light Servers and Input Boxes.

Connection of Light System DALI and PC via networkIn addition to USB cables, the PC with the Light Studio software can now also be connected to the Light Server 64+ via Ethernet - either directly by cable with a single Light Server 64+, or via a hub or switch. The PC and hub can also be connected by cable or wirelessly (WLAN). This option provides the flexibility needed, for example, to set up systems that include more than one room: on the wireless notebook PC, the scenes can thus be programmed wherever they are.
A well conceived, automatic setup process allows the ERCO Light System DALI to be quickly and easily commissioned, have its functionality checked and be handed over by the electrician without the use of an external PC. In this process, a series of standard light scenes designed to suit the most common requirements are also installed.
Light Server 64+ PC
Wherever a PC is permanently available, whether at workstations, checkouts or reception desks, it can be used with the Light Changer+ PC software to operate Light System DALI. This only requires an Ethernet connection between the Light System DALI and the PC. The software in the Light System DALI network can only run in conjunction with the special Light Server 64+ PC. In appearance, operation and functional scope the Light Changer+ PC software is identical to the interface of the Light Changer+.
If additional inputs are required for a Light System DALI installation, above and beyond the 12 digital/switch inputs of the Light Server 64+, the number of inputs can be doubled using the Input Box. Like a Light Server, the Input Box also offers 12 digital/switch inputs, six of which can be configured as analogue inputs. The Input Box and Light Server are connected via the Ethernet. This means that the Input Box can also be used for the decentralised inclusion of switches, push-buttons or sensors. In contrast to the Light Server, the Input Box does not have a DALI output. The total number of Light Servers and Input Boxes in a Light System DALI network is limited to 12.
