Lutron Expands DALI-2 Support in its Flagship Control Systems



Coopersburg, PA (Friday, September 16, 2022) – Today, Lutron announces broad support for DALI-2 in its flagship Athena and HomeWorks lighting control systems, offering lighting designers and engineers greater fixture compatibility, openness, and freedom to select the fixtures of their choice.

“Lutron systems are designed to control virtually any light source in a wide range of applications and integrate easily with other systems in the space. Adding DALI-2 to HomeWorks in North America is a natural expansion of the system’s lighting control capabilities. DALI-2 technology provides a digital complement to our traditional 0-10V and phase control solutions, giving designers another tool in their toolbox.” – Zach Schroeck – Director, Product Management.

The DALI-2 certification program, along with fundamental protocol improvements that addressed challenges with system compatibility, now allows Lutron to support DALI-2 control modules in its award-winning Athena control system for commercial applications and the industry leading HomeWorks system for the residential market:
• In Athena systems, DALI-2 fixtures can now be controlled using the new Athena wireless node with D4i drivers or a wired DALI-2 control module.
• In HomeWorks, we support DALI-2 wired, digital control
