    Rexel who owns wholesale outlets across the UK report c-bus is being discontinued while other outlets have a short supply of some items and long lead times for other parts and no training schedules from their main stockists, What's happening to C-bus in the UK?

    This might be a Schneider Electric (SE) UK thing. C-Bus is certainly not being discontinued. Like most electronic items, there are long lead times for finished goods. Seeing long lead times in Australia too. Schneider are definitely developing new products for C-Bus so any communications on discontinuing would most likely be a (short-sighted) regional decision. Will leave to others who are still working at SE to communicate any internal decisions.

    Thanks for the conformation, I had thought that might be the case, some of our sparks are being told this and they pass it on to customers, They also tell me that some wholesalers are suggesting alternate systems mostly based around KNX which maybe as you say a Schneider thing. I can now go back to customers with some reassurance of longevity in C-Bus

    You better hope it doesn't get dumped, your 10 Downing street, Wembley Stadium and Manchester City Football Club all use C-Bus :D

    :D:D:D:D

    Keep in mind that if you ever need the colour touch screens repaired, that's the 5080CTC1,2, and 3 versions, I am still repairing these.
