How much current do different devices draw from the DALI line?

Typical units will draw the following from the DALI line:  
DALI Ballasts = 2mA  
4 Input Module (DCDALIO-0402) = 2mA  
Tridonic Group Controller (DALI-GC) = 6mA
As a rule of thumb, you can presume that mains powered devices such as ballasts or DCDALIO-0402 will draw 2mA from the DALI line. Devices powered from the DALI line will usually draw more current. As an example, if you had 55 ballasts and 10 x 4 Input Modules on a single DALI line, the devices would draw a total of 135mA.
