C-BUS Lighting Control & Home Automation Services Sydney

What is C-Bus?

C-Bus is the name given to a lighting control system manufactured by Schneider Clipsal. The product was originally created in the late eighties and has progressively undergone several enhancements and improvements since then. Clipsal was an Australian brand and company before being sold to Schneider Electric in the early 2000’s.

C-Bus – at the core of home automation

Being a lighting control system at its core, C-Bus can switch and dim lighting throughout a home, office building or factory warehouse. C-Bus has also found its way on very specialised applications and industries, such as luxury yachts. In addition to lighting, the C-Bus system can control mains rated appliances such as motorised blinds, under floor heating, ceiling seep fans, electric windows, blinds and shutters. Given that all these different types of appliances can be controlled from the one system, C-Bus is often found at the core of home automation systems and smart building controls. Home automation systems improve the levels of comfort, convenience and security for occupants, in addition to assisting in the minimisation and more effective use of energy.

Lighting control options aplenty with C-Bus

The C-Bus system has a wide range of appealing wall switches to suit the most discerning of users. There is also a broad range of motion and light level sensors that the system uses to determine whether to activate or deactivate lighting, blinds, doors, windows, etc. The backend of C-Bus systems is comprised of controllers that do the actual work of switching and/or dimming depending on the commands that come through via the wall switches and sensors. These controllers can cater for a wide variety of lighting options, ranging from the legacy leading/trailing edge phase cut dimming right up to the modern-day DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface). As the pre-eminent form of lighting nowadays is LED (Light Emitting Diode), the C-Bus system offers a good range of technologies to enable effective (and efficient) control.
