5500NB Series C-Bus® Network Bridge Installation Instructions
1.0 Description
The 5500NB C-Bus network bridge is a DIN rail mounted system support module
that provides electrical isolation between two C-Bus networks. A network bridge
might be required to overcome electrical constraints on any single C-Bus network,
such as when the maximum number of C-Bus devices is reached, or when the
physical distances between devices are large. The network bridge can also be used
as a convenient way to isolate networks. For example, different floors in a multistorey building installation.

Description
5500NB
C-Bus Network Bridge, DIN rail mounted, provides
isolation between two C-Bus networks
The DIN rail mounted unit is normally installed inside an enclosure. The unit takes
up four metres of space on a DIN rail. The network bridge uses RJ45 sockets for
C-Bus connectivity. The unit has two C-Bus status indicator LEDs labelled “Network
A” and “Network B”.
The network bridge draws 18mA from each connected C-Bus network. The unit
does not provide power to either connected C-Bus network and does not require
mains power to operate.
1.1 Capabilities
The Network Expansion
As the number of units in any particular C-Bus network approaches the maximum
limitation (approximately 100 standard units), increased network impedance begins
to diminish network performance. C-Bus network bridges can be used to split
installations into multiple networks, electrically isolating the networks and increasing
the total number of units configurable in an installation.
Transmission Distance and Signal Propagation
As the total length of unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable reaches 1,000 metres
for a given network, the network’s performance can be degraded by increased
propagation delays. A C-Bus network bridge can be used as a repeater station for
data communications, effectively increasing the maximum transmission distances.
Network Segregation and Isolation
Irrespective of electrical limitations, a C-Bus network bridge may be used to
physically isolate one network from another. For instance, a network bridge may be
used to isolate floors in a multi-storey building installation.

Network Burden and Clock Signal Generation
The network bridge features a software selectable C-Bus network burden and
system clock for each connected network. The burden and clock may be used
to ensure successful communications, eliminating the need for additional C-Bus
system support modules.
Using Toolkit software, you can configure the network clock and burden. The
network bridge does not support Learn Mode or Remote On and Remote Off
functions. When configured using Toolkit configuration software, the bridge does not
have a group address.

1.2 Status Indicators
The two network indicators, “Network A” and “Network B”, show the status of the
networks that are connected and active. When C-Bus is connected, the appropriate
indicator illuminates as a solid orange light. The LED flashes when there is activity
on the connected C-Bus network.

2.0 C-Bus Network Connections
Two RJ45 connectors are provided for upstream and downstream network
attachment. The C-Bus network uses pink Cat 5e, polarised 15-36 Volt, twisted pair
cable, catalogue number 5005C305B.
Never connect the C-Bus interface to Ethernet or telephone equipment networks;
damage to equipment could result.

The 5500NB does not support
Remote Override On/Off functions.
The override signals are internally
connected and looped through the
network bridge at the “Network A”
and “Network B” connections. The
network bridge does not connect
the override signals from the two
networks.
Rubber plugs are supplied to cover
unused RJ45 connectors. The plugs
stop dust and debris from entering
the unit.

3.0 C-Bus Programming Requirements
Use C-Bus Toolkit software to configure the network bridge. The unit does not
utilise C-Bus Learn Mode features. Using software not provided or approved by
Clipsal could void the hardware warranty. The latest version of Toolkit software can
be downloaded free of charge from http:\\www.clipsal.com\trade/support, and then
select Downloads.
4.0 Megger Testing
Megger testing must never be performed on C-Bus data cabling or terminals as it
may degrade the performance of the network.
Megger testing of the mains wiring, of an electrical installation that has C-Bus units
connected, will not cause damage to the C-Bus units. C-Bus units contain electronic
components and the installer should interpret megger readings with due regard to
the nature of the circuit connection.
5.0 Power Surges and Short Circuits
The C-Bus network bridge is not directly connected to mains. However, the mains
voltage that is used to supply power to the C-Bus network must be limited to the
range specified. Each unit incorporates transient protection circuitry. Additional
external power surge protection devices should be used to enhance system
immunity to power surges. It is strongly recommended that over voltage equipment
such as the Clipsal 970 be installed at the switchboard.
