Re: Sample: Arduino & LED-Warrior09

Post by smartvisionary »

Hello there,

I am trying to run the example code provided by you, and even the one provided by codemasters for the LW-09 01module. I am trying to usit with a MW PWM-120-24DA converter (https://asset.conrad.com/media10/add/16 ... ievate.pdf) with DALI output for a DALI controller. The code which was provided has failed to set the pwms for the LEDsconnected to the MW PWM-120-24DA converter. I am using an arduino nano every to controll the LW09 via I2C BUS.
Do you have any suggestionwhat am I doing wrong.

Thank you for advance for any help

Do you have a bus power supply connected to the bus? DALI needs a special kind of power supply that provides the power for the bus itself to function. Like our LED-Warrior11.

The bus did it as you suggested. May I have one more question about the addressing process. I have a PWM-120-24DA converter dali device connected and is working only if I send broadcast commands but I need to find out the address for the send_command procedure. Is there a way to get the devices address or do I have to make one. I already tried to iterate through 0 -63 and 0-255 to try every possible address, but only the broadcast 255 address triggers a response.

Most DALI devices will have no short address by default.
You have to set one by yourself using the "random procedure" DALI devices supports or setting it by send a DALI address using the DTR register method. The DTR methodis not recommended if you have a running bus, because each device on the bus will get this address if you are send this via broadcast

However, the LW08 is not designed for this type of commands. For this you need a LW14 or another DALI Master.

Thank you very much. I will try the LW14.

Is there a chance you have an example how to trigger the random "procedure" or to set DTR on the lw-14, please?

If you using the LW14 as a module, we have no sample code for addressing with the "random address" method.
The DTR method will work but for this I have to build some sample code (not part of our githib repository at the moment).

Or you using the LW14U-DR, for this we have a Windows appliction to setup DALI devices incl. set, change and switch addresses.

I found a git repository which using the LW14-Mod and supports the Addressing. Maybe this is worth a look: https://github.com/SorX14/dali_master

The library above does not work well with an arduino but I've found an alternative to it https://github.com/davideloba/daliMaster. I ll try it with the lw-14 when it arrives. Thanks for your help.
