PDEG or PDEB? Which one do I choose?

Pu’deg or Pu’deb… 

We commonly get asked for the difference between a Philips Dynalite PDEG or a PDEB. Phil Gouveia sheds some light on this topic;

PDEG Ethernet Gateway

The Philips Dynalite PDEG Ethernet bridge effectively provides a multi-function Ethernet based connection to the Philips Dynalite system which includes the following functionality.

  • Remote Web Interface (for remote logon functionality)
  • Support for App control via the Envision Touch application.
  • Time clock and built-in scheduling.
  • Inbuilt task engine.
  • Provides a foundation for an Ethernet based backbone for the Philips Dynalite system.
  • Can provide third party Ethernet based integration to other systems such as blinds, AV etc.
PDEB Ethernet Gateway

The Philips Dynalite PDEB Ethernet bridge is basically a more cost-effective version of the PDEG which focuses primarily on providing a seamless Ethernet based “trunk & spur” network topology for the Philips Dynalite Lighting Control System and where more advanced functions such as scheduling and remote web interface is not an essential requirement.
