A channel can be configured to act as a regular, Dali present relay using the QuickRelaySetup tool. A Dali device will appear on this channel after configuring and rebooting the controller.
Channels marked System are channels that have no relay functionality and may or may not have Dali devices connected to themselves. These channels do not have a Dali device associated and cannot be controlled by Dali commands.
Dali Relays 1, 2, 3, 4 etc are grouped in Dali Groups 0, 1, 2, 3 etc respectively, but may change, depending on configuration.
There are two options for running relays in Dali mode:
Relays configured with ForcedDali will remain present and in the appropriate group for their channel, regardless of any conditions.
Relays configured as Dali follow the same convention but have two automatic adjustments:
1. If a Dali device is connected to the relay channel, itself, the relay will be reverted back to System (inactive) and will not be able to be controlled.
2. If there is a Dali control device in the channel before it, the relay will be grouped in that channel's group, rather than its own. For example, in such a situation, Relay 2 will be grouped not in Group 1, but 0 in such a situation).
