A lot of people may be unaware of the full potential of a C-Bus lighting system, so let’s go through a few to give you a better idea.

What is Clipsal C-Bus?

C-Bus is a microprocessor-based control and management system for buildings and homes.  It is used to control lighting and other electrical services such as Blinds, Irrigation, Alarms, Windows, Appliances, Underfloor Heating, Fans, Awnings, Pumps, Motors etc. The C-Bus system uses input and output units to trigger actions. All the input and output units are installed on the C-Bus network and from there programmed to turn loads on and off, dim lights, adjust the speed of ceiling fans etc.

Why should I install C-Bus?
  • C-Bus is a highly robust and reliable control system.
  • C-Bus can control any type of load.
  • Dimming is smooth and can be done via Push, 0-10v, Dali and Phase.
  • There are a large number of modules and 3rd party products that can integrate with C-Bus. For example: a Push Controls system, Savant or voice control
  • A single cable can control a wide selection of devices.
  • Switching made simple. At any point in the network you can have a 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 or 7-way switch. You could have every switch in the network turn on the same light. You can change, remove or add switching at any time.
  • C-Bus installations are wired back to a central point. This means all cables are neat and tidy in one location and there is no need to try and find where cables have been wired to.
  • Fault finding can be a very quick process compared to conventional wiring.

C-Bus wall switches come in multiple different styles and colours. You can get C-Bus wall switches to match up with Power points across models like the Zen Saturn, Metal Plate and standard. The most advanced C-Bus wall switch is the eDLT range which in available in the Saturn and Zen series wall plates. Their features include:
