Benefits when using the Philips Dynalite system

Preset lighting control
This is more than just on/off lighting control. Dynalite controls allow you to create ambience and recall different lighting scenes to suit your mood and the occasion.

Distributed control and monitoring
You can configure, control and monitor all the lights and system components from any point on the network and generate system status reports.

Ease of installation and configuration
The DyNet system is easier to install and takes less time to configure than conventional systems.

Flexibility in design
When layouts or control methods require modification, Envision software enables changes to be carried out by a simple reprogramming of the system.

Energy savings
By using intelligent lighting systems, lighting is only used when needed. Natural light is harvested and supplementary lighting adjusted accordingly, resulting in optimized environmental performance and minimized operating and maintenance costs.

Scalability
Philips Dynalite adopts a flexible approach to accommodate building churn
– changing tenancies, fluctuating staff numbers and varying office activities. User interfaces can access any function, and all output channels can be easily reconfigured without wiring changes. The same components can be used in a single-room application or in larger projects involving thousands of controlled units.

Advanced integration into other systems
The Philips Dynalite range of integration devices and network gateways allow the DyNet system to work in conjunction with other systems, such as blinds, audio-visual,
temperature control and building management systems.

Increased lamp life
The Philips Dynalite soft start and surge-limiting voltage regulation technologies protect lamps from high inrush currents and power surges, dramatically increasing
lamp life.

Perfect LED dimming
Advanced technology from Philips Dynalite enables flicker-free dimming of LED lamps

Dynalite User Interfaces

Regardless of the level of integration and range of available functions, a control system requires an intuitive end-user interface, so that users can easily schedule and activate the various control functionalities. Philips Dynalite user interfaces come in a broad range of Keypads, touchscreens and wiring devices – with a rich variety of styles and finishes to match any project budget, level of interactivity, or décor requirements.

Dynalite Sensors

The Dynalite sensor range combines motion detection, light level detection and IR receive in one unit. Each of these features can be operated at the same time, allowing automation scenarios such as turning on the lights after detecting motion and then dimming the lighting level once the available sunlight has been measured, thereby providing additional energy savings. By combining each of these functions into one device, operational efficiency is improved.

Dynalite Relay Controllers

As one of the most popular forms of lighting control, relay controllers can have the greatest impact in terms of energy management and lighting control. Available in both DIN-rail and wall-box configurations, this Dynalite solution enables a vast range of relay controllers with a variety of circuit numbers and sizes to work individually or as part of a system, thus fulfilling any project requirement. Each device can store over 170 presets, allowing the recall of complex switching logic from simple network messages.

Dynalite Phase-Cut Dimmers

Leading Edge Dimmer Controllers are ideal for lighting circuits with resistive and inductive properties, including mains voltage incandescent fittings, neon and low voltagelamps with a compatible electronic transformer.Available in both DIN-rail and wall box configuration, Dynalite supports a vast range of leading edge dimmer controllers with a variety of circuit numbers and sizes to work individually or part of a system, fitting any project requirement.Wall box dimmer controllers have been engineered to achieve rise times of over 100μS producing reduced filament sing, reduced supply voltage noise, resulting in extended lamp life.

Dynalite Signal Dimmer Controllers

The Dynalite range of Signal Dimmer Controllers, have been engineered to meet the future demands of projects. They are capable of transmitting all industry standard driver protocols (1-10V, DSI, DALI and Broadcast DALI) and support two ranges of install opportunities of both DIN-rail and wall box, to allow for flexible install opportunities. The Signal Dimmer Controller range also support a vast range of driver controllers with a variety of circuit numbers and sizes to work individually or as part of a system, suiting any project requirement.

Dynalite LED PWM Controllers

Capable of directly driving LED fittings, the Dynalite LED Dimmers use Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology to great effect. Perfectly suited to Red, Green, Blue (RGB) color changing applications, chase sequencing or provision of elegant scene settings. The Dynalite LED drivers come in a range of configurations to meet the compatibility requirements of many of the available LED fittings. Each device is ready to receive native DMX allowing them to be used in color mixing or chase sequence applications.

Dynalite Multipurpose Controllers

Within any project, many different lighting load types may be required to achieve a desired result. Each of these load types may require a different style of control. The Dynalite range of multipurpose controllers allows customization of output types via different output module units. When using DIN-rail multipurpose controllers, a specific type of control can be chosen for each circuit: relay, leading-edge dimmer, trailing-edge dimmer, driver control, controller with out-of-the-box functionality, fan control, and blind/screen control.In any combination, multiple load types can be controlled from a single device. This simplifies installation and prevents wasted capacity of circuits that are not required.

Dynalite Integration Devices

Within any modern project, many third-party systems can be found performing different roles. Each separate system may use a different protocol for communication. Dynalite has developed a range of gateway devices that can be used to synchronize these systems’ functions into one integrated system solution.

Dynalite Network Devices

To bring all the different devices together, Dynalite supports a range of network devices that are useful in creating a problem-free installation.
