TwinCAT 3 Lighting Solution: The lighting solution for DALI-2

With the TwinCAT 3 Lighting Solution, Beckhoff has introduced an Excel-configurable lighting solution that focuses on simplifying all work steps from engineering to maintenance. All conventional lighting controllers are integrated and the number of DALI lines is unlimited. The TF8050 TwinCAT 3 Lighting Solution is fully web/HTML5-capable, decentrally scalable, and can be operated directly via a panel. Quick function changes, addressing, and extensions can be performed immediately during operation, as can DALI line-independent groupings of DALI devices. Even daylight-dependent human-centric lighting concepts can be implemented with the TF8050.

Advantages of the TwinCAT 3 Lighting Solution at a glance:

  • supports DALI-2 devices and option to integrate Beckhoff I/O terminals (relay terminal, 0…10 V analog output terminal, etc.)
  • high level of planning flexibility: unlimited number of DALI lines, groups spanning DALI lines, supports 200 lighting groups and 30 scenes, decentralized I/O stations
  • straightforward configuration via HMI – no programming required
  • includes all common lighting functions such as human-centric lighting, constant light regulation, daylight control, and staircase function
  • DALI device monitoring and operating hours count of control gears for maintenance purposes
  • HTML 5 based visualization interface on panels, tablets, and mobile devices
  • Excel tables for configuration of and saving settings
  • option to extend the program with own PLC and HMI code
  • option to connect to BMS systems and the cloud – for example, via BACnet/IP, OPC UA, Modbus/TCP, or MQTT
