Clipsal Expands Wireless Lighting Offering

Clipsal has rolled out a new C Bus wireless lighting gateway, dimmer switches, and a new scene controller.

The proprietary C-Bus RF wireless gateway enables a C-Bus protocol communication bridge between a single C-Bus RF wireless system and a single C-Bus wired network.

The new range has been launched as several vendors expand their wireless product offering in the home automation market with some systems now including wireless, iPhone and iPod touch capability.  

Clipsal claim that because both networks use the same proprietary protocol, the gateway allows the wireless and wired networks to communicate and interact with each other, allowing for third-party functionality, with the ability to control audio, blinds, irrigation systems and more.

The Neo and Saturn decorator-style 600W and 1,000W RF dimmers are designed to replace standard wall switches and dimmers. Each dimmer controls one load. All of the RF devices can be controlled via an RF wireless remote control and the RF devices have learn and scene capabilities.

The dimmers are two-wire retrofit devices using the switching leg (line and load), and are available in two-and four-button models in a variety of colours.

Clipsal claim that more wireless products will soon be added to the line during the next 12 months.
