ProbitGears

ProbitGears delivers an unique potential for testing DALI control devices. It simulates up to 65 control gears like LED drivers, emergency lighting or phase cut dimmers in parallel, covering the whole address space of any DALI system.

ProbitGears is a small box with a DALI interface. On the back it is connected and powered via USB. The PC software grants full access to every detail of the simulations inside. Every event is visualized, recorded and actually can be modified at run time.

▸ FAQ



Does the ProbitGears simulate the physical load of each control gear?

·     Answer: No. Due of the wide variety of possible load characteristics this property will not be simulated. Any load simulation and testing has to be done manually by the user. The ProbitGears is designed to cause a minimal load based on its own operation and transceiver circuit (high impedance OPA receiver and MOSFET transmitter).
