C-Bus released USB interface

USB C-Bus to PC Interface

Clipsal have released the first C-Bus to PC interface that doesn’t require RS-233 or a serial to USB converter – 5500PCU. It offers following:

  • Provides a native USB connection front a PC to a C-Bus network
  • Housed in a 4M DIN Rail enclosure
  • The USB port is easily accessible from the front of the unit
  • Utilizes a sturdy USB B-Type connector
  • The unit is supplied complete with a 3m USB cable
  • The unit uses the same US cable type as the 5500PACA
  • Contains a C-Bus network burden and is capable of generating a C-Bus system clock signal

The 5500PCU is available at price $328.71 as well as RS232 version.

P. S. LinuxMCE doesn’t support C-Bus at all. There is a topic in the forum with request of support that technology. The easiest way is to create a GSD software interface but to do that you have to know the protocol description.
