    Hello,

    I just read an article in this forum saying the C-BUS is discontinued in USA. I just wanted to confirm is it true? Buying online takes lot of time, so is there any vendors who sells c-bus products in USA ?

    Cbus was discontinued in the USA around 2015. Unfortunately Cbus doesn't use international power supplies so sourcing 125V versions these days would be difficult.

    If you are still interested in cbus in the US you could always use a stepdown transformer 240VAC to 110VAC to drive your cbus appliances. Also try E-bay for a lot of cbus equipment on sale there.

    This depends on what you mean by compatible. If you mean products that implement the CBus protocol and connect directly to the Cbus bus, then no, it's just Clipsal/Schneider. If you mean can you interface other devices to Cbus then yes. General inputs units will handle industrial analog/digital signals, output relays can control any load, Touch Screens and PACs have serial interfaces and the SHAC also has Modbus and Bacnet integration as well as the ability to connect to network devices.

    Schneider have introduced the name Space Logic as an umbrella term for all their automation products. Cbus is now included in this space. It doesn't really change anything, it's just pretending they all work together.
