    Is it wise to use a C-bus relay for isolating powerpoints? I'm not imagining vacuum cleaners but DVD machines, microwaves, stuff like that.

    Limit current

    My suggestion would be that you install a 10 amp MCB to limit the load that can be drawn through the channel. This would be especially true if you were to supply more than one power point per channel because due to their very nature you have no control of the equipment/total load that may be plugged into them. Another point to consider would be the effect on the appliances of having the supply abruptly switched instead of being powered down in the recommended fashion ie/ loss of programming on a VCR.

    Thanks for the reply pbelectrical. Our plan is to use RF to power down vcr, tv whatever before dropping the electrical load. We're trying to decide whether to use a Comfort panel or C-bus to achieve it. We'll certainly use a MCB and will probably use a 20a relay to be safe.
