What is RAPIX ?
RAPIX is the total commissioning software and hardware suite solution for DALI Lighting Control and DALI Emergency. Designed in Australia and DALI compliant, you can now reduce design and install times with the future of commercial lighting control.
RAPIX Lighting Control System
RAPIX Lighting Control System is the complete solution for lighting control. It is based on Ethernet and DALI, which is the International Standard for lighting control.
It communicates directly with both Ethernet and DALI physical layers without the need for a middle layer system, which substantially simplifies the system architecture. This means it forms a more streamlined system design, easier installation and faster commissioning.
It also leads to less maintenance cost and issues due to the lack of hardware needed. Legacy lighting control systems need gateways (additional hardware and software) in order to communicate to Ethernet and DALI physical layers.
Xi Extended Intelligence for DALI
The Xi-extended intelligence is an extensive set of commands developed for DALI. It enables RAPIX to be the most intelligent lighting control network in the market. The platform employs intuitive software and hardware features that enhances the concept of intelligent digital lighting for your premises.
RAPIX Lighting Control System is a scalable solution that allows you to easily adapt the system to fit all lighting control applications, from single-level tenancies to large facilities.
Secure & Reliable Communications
RAPIX Lighting Control System places your control systems and data as the up most priority. It uses 128-bit standard encryption, script replay guards and authenticated communications. With these features, the system can securely be installed on your building’s Integrated Communications Networks. This decreases redundant cabling and labour costs that come with running separate lighting control networks.
The system also employs a dependable multicast-based Ethernet communication protocol instead of UDP, which means information delivery over Ethernet is more reliable with RAPIX.
Third Party Integration
The system can easily be integrated with third-party systems. It allows implementation of TCP/IP-based protocol which facilitates seamless embedded or PC-based integrations.
