Hi Everyone,\nI am a NEW Player in the C-Bus Community Forums.\n\nOur home was 100% C-Bussed when built 14 Years.\nFull installation done by Licensed Sparky & C-Bussed by Clipsal Accredited Installer.\nThe Network currently works well.\n\n[B][U]What I Now Want to Do[/U][/B]\nI want to "Add" two NEW circuits to the existing Network and Programme these two NEW circuits accordingly.\n\n[B][U]Basic Info About My Existing Network[/U][/B]\nThe existing network consist of Many Dimmers & Relays of varying sizes. \nNumerous Switches & Scene Controllers make up the Network.\nA C-Bus2 Network interface [CNI] is also incorporated into the Network.\nA PC with the latest Windows operating system is also permanently hooked up to the Network.\nFrom the PC the home Lights can be operated without any issue. [Although we never use it].\n\n[B][U]About Me[/U][/B]\nPretty up there with computers but in the past 12 years heavily into Apple Computers.\nAverage with Windows PC but I can get by doing a Google search and completing the task at hand.\nHave always been a good thinker and handy at fixing minor things around the home.\nI never take risks, I always research my subject.… plan well and execute the task.\n\n[U][B]Task At Hand - Add Two NEW Circuits To Existing Network[/B][/U]\nThe C-Bus "High Voltage" side will be done by a Licensed Electrician. [[COLOR=#ff0000]No Exceptions[/COLOR]]\nThe Licensed Electrician knows the C-Bus hookup…. [U]but he knows nothing about programming of C-Bus[/U].\n\n[COLOR=#0000ff]No. I am NOT Interested in getting someone out here to program a C-Bus Switch.\nCurrently unemployed and also want to learn to do it myself[/COLOR].\n\nI want to start learning to programme the switches etc myself [U]this is the whole idea of this project[/U].\nI have a few Spare 1, 2 & 4 Gang switches that I would love to know how to program.\nTons of Cat6 Cable - Crimping Tool - Connectors including the Pink Shielded type etc etc.\nFully conversant with 568A - 568B - Straight - Cross Over - Rollover & Loopback etc.\n\nI am confident and I will be doing the low voltage side of the lights in the Garden area.\nFully aware of Voltage Drop - Wire Types - Wire Sizes - Conduit requirements & Lights in concrete canisters and terminations etc etc.\n\nThe two NEW Circuits will be connected into an Existing Dimmer in the C-Bus cabinet.\nThe Existing Dimmer has two Unused channels…. We plan to use them.\n[COLOR=#ff0000][U]The Maximum load on each of the Circuits is within the allowable limits of the Dimme[/U]r[/COLOR].\n[This has been checked and confirmed].\n\n[B][U]Your constructive advise on[/U][/B] \n What I need to look out for\n ALL needed Equipment for Programming and the Hook up sequence. \n What I need know and do safely to complete the programming\n How to bring these two NEW circuits "Online" into the Network\n Any other valuable info including "Tips" & Pitfalls….. will be very much appreciated.\n\nI would love to programme one of those spare 1, 2 & 4 Gang switches that I currently have in hand before I start jumping onto the Existing Network.\n\nThere are several Wall Switches currently within the home that have a few "Unused" "Key Groups" !!!\n\nThanks in advance.
