    Just need some input, actually what is the different between this two. as we know, Insta Bus is an euro Standard. Clipsal C-Bus is mostly use in asia. what is the different between this two?? will Clipsal C-bus turn over to EIB Standard since the Clipsal company is owned by scneider???:p
    They say EIB is Support for multi layer, c-bus only for TCP/IP??

    With respects to the differences, do you mean in terms of the communication protocol or in terms of the product ranges?

    Both EIB/KNX and C-Bus are built on the ISO 7-layer communication model. The are not the same but there are some similarities. C-Bus is compatible with TCP/IP, Crestron, AMX, LonWorks, ModBus and some other protocols through interfaces.

    Newman do you have any document related to the MODBUS interfacing with MBS system. I need to give a proposal to my SIEMENS local partner to integrate C-Bus with their BMS system through MOBBUS.
