OSRAM DEXAL™ (Data Exchange for Advanced Lighting) is a non-proprietary, intra-luminaire interface that enables power and bi-directional communication between the driver and the fixture-integrated component providing exact luminaire-specific data including diagnostics to light management systems. DEXAL has been tested and proven compatible with a growing list of industry-leading light management systems including Daintree Networks solutions from Current, powered by GE; Enlighted, Inc.; Magnum Energy Solutions; and OSRAM ENCELIUM. Luminaire OEMs can leverage DEXAL as a standard bi-directional communications interface and drastically reduce the number of component configurations they must support. Additionally, an integrated power supply further simplifies manufacturing by reducing component count and the related costs.
OSRAM OPTOTRONIC® programmable drivers with DEXAL technology provide a streamlined solution for individual fixtures to be a smart node on a networked light management system. DEXAL enables luminaire manufacturers to supply specifiers with smart fixtures that offer two-way communication of fixture-level data without complicating the design and manufacturing process. DEXAL enables a streamlined means of designing luminaires that are both smart and compatible with multiple light management systems, thereby increasing productivity. Using one standard interface with an integrated power supply on every luminaire simplifies manufacturing requirements and reduces costs.
