VEmesh D2D Bridge
On the RF side, a VEmesh network comprises of one VEmesh Gateway and a number of Nodes. The VEmesh Bridges are the Nodes of a D2D (VEmesh Wireless Extension to DALI) Network.
On the DALI side, each VEmesh Bridge connects to one or more standard DALI devices or sensors, with a VEmesh Bridge capable to support up to 64 such devices. The Bridge actually forms a DALI loop, with the connection following DALI standard IEC 62386.
Through this connection, the Bridge receives all DALI signals from the DALI devices that it is connected (such as LED drivers replies and input devices’ events), and forwards them to the VEmesh wireless network. In the opposite direction, the VEmesh Bridge receives the DALI Master commands and forwards them on its DALI loop to the devices that it is connected to.
In addition to standard DALI devices, the D2D Bridges can connect to switches, presence detectors and sensors for DALI and various extensions, such as from Helvar (see website here).
One D2D Bridge supports 1 to 64 devices, the latter being DALI limitation and also depending on the model. It does so without requiring any DALI address of its own.
Standard D2D Bridges’ require 110-220VAC for power; a 12VDC model is available to fit devices that can supply 12VDC auxiliary power output, such as for Retail lighting control. VEmesh D2D Bridge has a plastic case and its dimensions are 149.5mm x 40mm x 28.1mm (5.89” x 1.57” x 1.1”).
