Things to know about bus cables

Bus system for maximum flexibility in electrical installations

BUS (Binary Unit System) is used for transmitting data between individual participants (actuators, sensors, operating elements, etc.) within a network. The bus cable creates a data connection. Bus lines are laid in a line, star or tree structure. The individual bus participants are all connected to one wire and use it to exchange signals for switching, controlling, adjusting and monitoring. Bus systems provide maximum flexibility because the linkage of the entire electrical installation is not done by the usual wiring, but by programming. So if the room layout changes in a building, no re-laying of cables is necessary, only a re-programming of the system which, in addition, can be extended easily and quickly.

Bus cable as a control cable for building automation

Bus cables are often used in smart building automation and building systems technology. Homes equipped with such a bus system are called “smart homes”. With the help of bus cables in bus systems, many functions in a home can be easily remote controlled, e.g., room temperature or lights. At the same time, automation and controlling can save energy and costs.
