The Philips Dynalite DDNG485 is a flexible network communications gateway designed for DyNet RS485 networks. The two opto-isolated RS485 ports enable the DDNG485 to implement a trunk and spur topology on large project sites, with the device providing a high-speed backbone opto-coupled to many lower speed spurs. It also provides isolation of electrical faults to individual spurs.
The device is also designed to enable cost-effective integration between the Philips Dynalite control system and third-party devices. The on-board Programmable Logic Controller can assemble and transmit user-defined data strings. The DDNG485 has a DMX mode that can transmit or receive up to 64 channels of DMX512, with automatic DyNet conversion and Task triggering. This is a popular method of allowing a lighting operator temporary control of the house lights from the DMX lighting console in an auditorium scenario.
As part of the Philips Somfy Alliance, the DDNG485 is now capable of connecting to a range of Somfy products (specifically controllers that have RS485 connectivity) to seamlessly integrate the lighting and window coverings control under one system. In addition to being able to drive blinds and AV screens up and down, user programmable Intermediate Positions (IPs) in the Somfy system are mapped to DyNet Presets (the number available depends on the Somfy interface used) to allow the lighting and blinds to operate together for specific presets.
- Route DyNet to third-party systems – Such as audio-visual, Somfy blind controllers, Modbus meters and building automation systems, providing an integrated approach to total building control and energy management.
- Electrical fault isolation – Faults can be isolated to individual network spurs.
- Internal controls – Programmable logic controller capable of comprehensive conditional and sequential logic and arithmetic function processing, packet filtering and DyNet to DyNet 2 translation.
- Flexible mounting solution – DIN-rail mountable, designed to be installed into a distribution board or other electrical enclosure.
