    Hi guys, I just tried to install a c-bus USB PC interface into a c-bus2 system and although toolkit recognised all units it said non were responding. Is this a backwards compatibility issue? Also I tried configuring a c-bus switch on the network and it didn't work.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    CBUS/CBUS2 is the same thing to us, as I understand it the internal chipsets are slightly different, but thats what Clipsal worry about, the interface is the same.

    Have you checked:
    * The address of your new device isnt conflicting with a device already on the network
    * The new device has the same network number as the existing network
    * Does the new unit get both lights on and solid (I assume its the DIN 5500PCU)
    * Have you exceeded the network supply current by adding the new unit
    * Have you enabled the clock/burden on the new unit - maybe disable the burden, clock enabled should help not hinder.
