Make room for new Dali Link Starterset says B.E.G. UK boss

A lighting controls specialist has launched ‘one of the simplest single-room DALI scene solutions on the market’ which will enable electrical wholesalers to offer electrical professionals an easy ‘off the shelf’ solution.


he new DALI LINK STARTERSET is the latest building automation product to be released by German manufacturer

B.E.G. And it’s ideal for small offices and meeting rooms which can easily be controlled via an app on a Bluetooth device. The starter pack contains everything needed

to control and set scenes for DALI enabled lights, including the super-flat B.E.G. PD11 occupancy multi-sensor, a four-way push button interface to access lighting scenes and the DALI power supply which is connected to the light fittings in the ceiling. Paul Jones, B.E.G. Director for UK & Ireland,

believes electrical wholesalers will be able to offer the new DALI LINK STARTSET in ‘sizeable quantities’. He said: “We’re really excited about the launch of the new B.E.G. DALI LINK STARTERSET single-

room solution. It is easy to use and enables the end user to control room lighting and scene selection via the pushbutton module or individually at a touch of a button from a compatible smartphone which can result in substantial energy savings.

Off the shelf solution “The DALI LINK STARTERSET enables users to set the environment to whatever lighting scene is required. The starter packs enable electrical wholesalers to offer an ‘off the shelf’ single room lighting solution in potentially sizeable quantities to electrical professionals who can install it for end users quickly and effectively.” A video has been released on YouTube so

electrical professionals can see just how easy it is to install and commission. The B.E.G. PD11 is a flush fitting occupancy

sensor with a thickness of less than 1mm. It provides intelligent lighting control by reliably detecting brightness and movement in the room within an area of up to 9m. The innovative push button interface is combined with a suitable retractable switch, or scene plate. It houses a Bluetooth interface for easy programming via a smartphone or tablet device using the free B.E.G. DALI LINK App. The app contains a protected area which allows the installer to securely and intuitively commission the DALI LINK STARTERSET and allow the levels to be automatically queried and displayed. You can activate pre-set scenes at any time, with up to 16 scenarios pre-installed, or to even create your own. The lighting can also be switched and dimmed as required.

sound and temperature B.E.G. showcased a new range of industry-first KNX Generation 6 Presence Detectors at Light + Building 2018 in Frankfurt in March.


uilding on its popular and well- proven range of presence and motion detectors, German

manufacturer B.E.G. launched updated versions of the majority of its PD2, PD4, PD9 and PD11 products in Basic, Standard and Deluxe variations depending on the application. The Deluxe version offers a premium solution for KNX integrators facing more demanding applications with extra functions, which can include a logic module, sound sensor and temperature sensor. The PD2 and PD4 versions include all three features – an industry-first for the KNX market. The logic module is independent of the detector operation and has proved to be most useful to integrators. The integrated sound sensor can be used in areas where there are restrictions to the

PD4 KNX Deluxe.

normal presence detection such as a toilet cubical. If configured the sound sensor will activate, but only after motion is detected. Run-on times are configurable. The built-in temperature sensor will send temperature reading to the KNX bus to be used by HVAC actuators. This means separate temperature sensor do not have to be fitted to the wall, saving installation time and expense. B.E.G. offers some Basic versions in addition to the Standard versions of the PD2, PD4, PD9 and PD11

sensors. The Basic product is a

lower cost simplified device for basic functional requirements. The

Standard product is an upgraded Generation 6 software version of the previous product offering.

The new KNX Generation 6 PD2 Deluxe.

Presence Detectors mean B.E.G. now offers flush fitting and surface mount options on nearly all of its devices with different levels of functionality, giving the widest choice of detectors on the market. All B.E.G. KNX Generation 6 detectors can be configured

to be fully automatic or semi-automatic, which is sometimes referred to as absence detection, via the ETS software or optional remote controls. The sensors include lens shields to obscure parts of the detectable area, which is useful when detection is not required in certain sections of the space. B.E.G. Sales Director for UK & Ireland, Paul

Jones, said: “B.E.G. is leading the way with the widest choice of presence detectors to suit most types of requirements in the UK.” Industry-first sensor with built-in logic,
