technology for lighting control and building automation
applications. Developed as a solution for large-scale projects,
Philips Dynalite’s distributed intelligence methodology is equally
suited to small-scale installations. As a market segment leader,
Philips Dynalite’s reputation extends worldwide, exporting to
over fifty countries around the globe.
DyNet – The Network Protocol
DyNet is a communications protocol that operates on an
RS485 four-wire network. It was developed by Philips Dynalite
to control lighting and is also used to interface, at both high
and low levels, to HVAC (heating, ventilation, air-conditioning),
security, fire detection systems, access control, blinds, motors
and other electrical loads in a building. A DyNet network may
also be integrated as part of other control systems such as
a Building Management System (BMS) or Audio Visual (AV)Control System.
DLight – The Software
DLight is a Windows1 compatible software application used to
configure a DyNet network. It provides commissioning (set-up),
diagnostics, maintenance and end-user master control facilities.
It is a powerful end-user tool for on-site personnel.
