    Version 1 is currently released (Part number 101-225) from Ness
    The following is some text from the Interface Manual.
    GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
    The Ness C-Bus Interface Module interfaces the Ness M1G and M1EZ8 to the Clipsal C-Bus.
    The Interface has two COM ports which allows connection to the M1 either via "PORT 0" on the main M1 panel, or via any of the 7
    M1XSP serial expanders. (Some features are lost when connecting to the serial expander and is mainly used when lighting control
    only is required on the C-Bus.)
    When connected to Port 0 on the M1 system addition features are available over that of the M1XSP connection such as, ability for
    C-Bus to poll the M1 for system status, ability to control the M1 via C-Bus (e.g. touch Screen control) and the ability to receive lighting
    status from the C-Bus. (version 2.0 of Interface only - this will not be available on the first release, but should be available early 2006.).

    Although most of the programming is done via the NessRP into the M1 system, there is also a utlility program available to write
    some functions directly into the Ness C-Bus interface module such as Arming of an Area via C-Bus.
    FEATURES:
    ? Fully approved C-Bus Enabled Product,
    ? Controls up to 256 individual C-Bus lights or outputs. (Includes full dimming, On / Off or toggle commands),
    ? Connects to the M1 either into Port 0 or any Serial Expander module,
    ? Connects directly onto C-Bus without the need for additional PCI Interfaces,
    ? Supports C-Bus Touch Screens and other C-Bus modules to control the M1 system,
    ? Any M1 event or status change can control modules on the C-Bus,
    ? Allows interfacing of M1 Ethernet module, Phone control or NessRM software to control C-Bus modules.

    I hope this assist.
