cBUS – Lighting and Room Control
AK Electrics for a number of years been installing and maintaining cBUS systems and is now a registered schnieder CBus room and lighting control ecoXpert.
The Clipsal CBus system is a microprocessor based wiring system used to control lighting and other electrical devices.
From ON/OFF control of a lighting circuit to analogue type control, such as dimming electronic fluorescent ballasts, CBus can control and automate virtually any type of electrical load.
C-Bus information is held within individual C-Bus units rather than one central point. This ensures optimum communications speed and reliability. To ensure fast and reliable operation, each device has its own built-in microprocessor which can be individually programmed.
The CBus System can be used to control lighting and other electrical systems and can also be interfaced to control blinds, canopies, shutters, security systems, audio/visual products, HVAC, and other third-party systems.
Clipsal CBus products can be used in many ways but to give you an idea of their scope and flexibility, here are some examples:

You can turn on your air-conditioner from your mobile phone on the way home, or check that everything is turned off over the Internet when you get to work.
The New CBus eDLT Switch Range.
The new CBus eDLT switch range adds a whole new dimension to the classic DLT unit. With the ability to have up to 16 function commands, you can eliminate the clutter associated with multiple wall switches, controlling an entire area from one stylish and colourful unit.

Providing more colours, more control and more functionality, the eDLT offers a huge range of installer and user benefits and innovative design features, enabling it to display CBus system information, which was previously only achievable with touch screens.
