Product Details

Inline RF DSI/DALI Ballast Controller

This inline RF DSI / DALI dimming wireless controller with two output channels is capable of controlling incandescent, fluorescent and compact fluorescent lighting. It is designed for fitting inside a luminaire.

Output Channels

Output channel 1 comprises a mains voltage relay capable of simple on/off switching, while Output channel 2 provides dimmable control of either DSI or DALI type ballasts.

Stored Scenes

The unit also includes stored scenes for versatile manual control of lighting levels.

Wireless System Compatibility

These devices are integrated with others as part of the RS Wireless Lighting Control system. The built-in RF transceiver allows wireless communication with all other compatible products, e.g. the Switch Input Unit (RS 711-8574) is useful for push-button scene selection and absence detection.

All functionality is fully programmable.

Wireless Lighting Control System

RS wireless lighting control technology allows you to install a fully featured lighting control system easily and with minimal disruption. It has been specifically created to allow you to embrace the advantages of wireless technology, while at the same time offering all of the features and functionality demanded by modern day lighting control systems.,Simple Installation - wireless signals can pass through walls, floors and ceilings, so you can position switches and detectors exactly where you need them. No need to run costly control wires between devices or back to a central controller. Reduces installation times and minimises disruption, making it an ideal solution for retrofit and new builds. Easier to meet building regulations and energy efficiency demands. Ideal for historic and listed buildings where disturbing the building fabric is difficult or impossible.,Flexible Functionality - is achieved by programming, not hard wiring, making it incredibly easy to design the operation of your lighting system. If you need to reorganise your living or working space, simply move and/or reprogram devices for the new layout. This is particularly useful for open-plan environments.,Easy Expansion - adding extra devices is simple. No additional control wiring is required; simply install the extra device, program it into the system and you are good to go!,Radio Frequency: 868MHz,Receiver Class: 2,Transmitter Duty:,<10% on g3 band (default band),<0.1% on g2 band,<1% on g1 band,Compliance:,EN300 220-2 V2.1.2,EN301 489-1 V1.8.1,EN301 489-3 V1.2.1,LVD-2006/95/EC,Devices available in this range:,711-8568 RF Ceiling PIR presence detector – switched,711-8561 RF Ceiling PIR presence detector – DALI/DSI dimming,711-8580 RF Ceiling PIR presence detector – 1-10V dimming,711-8565 IR Programming Handset,711-8577 RF DALI/DSI + relay controller,711-8571 RF 1-10V + relay controller,711-8574 RF Switch Input Unit


The maximum RF range between devices is 100m in free air and up to 30m indoors. However the materials used within a building will vary and this will impact upon the RF range. In reality the nature of how the devices hybrid-mesh works means that in most scenarios the individual range of a product will not be important.
