The C-Bus Software
Toolkit includes the new version of
the C-Bus installation software. This new version supports
WindowsTM 98SE, ME, 2000 and XP. The software supports
a new and unique Barcode Scanning programming feature,
in addition to traditional programming methods.
scanning technique allows the installer to scan the C-Bus
packaging of each new unit to automatically add the unit to
the C-Bus project database. This ensures the correct unit
type is added and saves the installer having to select from
a list of unit types.
C-bus units are packaged with adhesive
serial number labels that can be affixed to plans etc. Units
already added to a Network can then be recalled by scanning
the Serial Number of the Unit.
Schedule Plus &

C-BUS Multi-Room Audio
The C-Bus Multi-Room
Audio System allows users to listen to and control audio sources
from convenient locations arounda home.
The system is both
simple to install and easy to use.
The system has been designed utilising new digital audio distribution technology (developed
by Clipsal), in conjunction with Clipsal C-Bus core technology for
system communication and integration.
Clipsal’s digital audio distribution technology allows for noise and
interference free audio reproduction, whilst the C-Bus technology allows the
audio products to be seamlessly integrated and used with all existing C-Bus
For example, volume
can all be controlled from the same C-Bus Switch or Touch Screen controlling
In addition, the system allows any input audio source to be made available
in any audio zone. Changes to the input audio source can easily be made by
the user from a local C-Bus device at any time, regardless of where the
audio source equipment (e.g., CD Player) is physically located.
It is compatible with most audio sources; it accommodates standard stereo
line level analogue inputs as well as digital audio TOSlink inputs.
Infrared signals from hand held remote controls can be routed through the
system by connecting IR targets and emitters.
IR commands can also
be stored by the system and activated by
programmed C-Bus commands.
The C-Bus Multi-Room Audio System allows a number of different system
layout options. This flexibility allows for a wide range of
customer needs and installation requirements.
Two example schematics
are shown opposite.
option allows a single audio source to be available to a number of C-Bus
Audio Amplifiers and to be controlled from convenient locations around the
home (via any combination of C-Bus input devices).This option requires one
Cat-5 cable for the Audio distribution, with this cable cascaded between
each Audio Amplifier.
This option allows more fl exibility. Multiple audio sources are made
available to all audio zones, with all the audio sources selectable on a
zone-by-zone basis via C-Bus Input Devices.
This option requires a separate (star wired) Cat-5 Audio cable to each Audio
Amplifier in a zone.
