I want to develop a complete DALI Control Device with two important features, one being "3 DALI buses on the device" and other being the "RGB colour control feature"! Already, I have successfully designed a DALI Master-Slave prototype system using two STM32s.
As my next step, I want to make my DALI Master compatible with the available commercial products(DALI Gears). Also in parallel, I would like to buy essential DALI standards.
Q1. What are the essential DALI standards for my purpose?
I was going through these two (System Components- Part 101, Control Device- part 103) standards and I could not find any info related to RGB colour control! Rather it is noted that part 101 works in conjunction with part 102 and part 209 describe the colour control! I certainly cannot afford to buy 4 standards(101,102,103 and 209) now!!
Q2: What are the designated commands for RGB colour control?? or Can I just use some random un-allocated(reserved) commands for this purpose?
Q3: Are 102, 209 required for my purpose? I will not be developing DALI Gear rather just DALI control device! I am assuming these two define how the DALI Gear should be designed!!
Essentially, I cannot afford to buy 4 DALI standards rather at max 3! In general, any suggestions regarding this project will be appreciated.
EDIT: What are the essential standards for me to get started? Maybe over some time, I could purchase all 4 but I am on the tight budget constraint. I could only ask for more money when I show some practical results with the above two features. Is there any workaround?
PS: I am not interested in getting the product certified anytime soon! I want to test it first for various practical scenarios.
