The C-Bus eDLT switch is
a highly enhanced new version of the C-Bus DLT home automation switch:

- More attractive.
The new C-Bus eDLT switch's many faces include customisable colour screen/button
back-light options and premium fascias, making it easy to suit your home décor.
Tri-colour LED back-lighting supports nine colours for the eDLT buttons and it's
LCD display: White, Magenta, Blue,
Red or Black (all LEDs off).
Brightness set-back support allows the eDLT screen and button backlights
to be dimmed late at night to independent soothingly dim levels.
- Easier to operate.
Enlarged eDLT buttons feature two separate switches on the left and right side for easier:
- Up/down control of dimmable lights or
multi-room audio volume.
- Next/previous selection of home automation scenes,
or multi-room audio source selection.
- Opening/closing of blinds/curtains,
- Faster/slower ceiling sweep fan
- Easier to understand.
The eDLT's clever colour back-lighting options, and its flexible high resolution LCD screen
allow the status of a wide range of home automation devices to be more
intuitively displayed and controlled when programmed by a Clever Home automation Engineer.
Each eDLT button may have its associated home automation device
status indicated by:
- A primary device label, using static or dynamic text.
- A dynamic graphic icon.
- A dynamic secondary device status display, using bar graphs, numeric level, and static/dynamic text.
- The colour of the screen and button backlights.
Two different colours may be used on the display foreground and background. Two different button
backlight colours may be used show button status for each of the four top buttons. The backlight
colours for the fifth (normally Next/Previous Page) button may be independently set. The switch
and LCD display backlight colours may also be dynamically changed to indicate other home automation
device status (e.g. security system armed, heater
on, garage door open, etc).
The eDLT home automation wall switch also supports multiple languages in the form of extended unicode
characters for Greek, German, and French; Cyrillic charcters; and over 3500 simplified Chinese
characters. Button information is shown on the eDLT's screen using:
- More user pages.
The C-Bus eDLT switch supports from 1 to 4 Normal pages,
allowing up to 16 home automation functions to be monitored and controlled from each five button
eDLT wall switch. If using one normal user page only, the fifth button may be used to control a
fifth load instead of functioning as the next/previous page button.
A whole new configurable Standby page is now also available. Your eDLT may show 5 separate items of
C-Bus home automation information,
each of which is configurable, including: time, date, or measurement information such as
A User Tools page allows home owners to change eDLT button and screen back-light colour and brightness,
the static primary button labels, timer durations, time and date, directly themselves. These changes may be made without
needing to ask your C-Bus systems integrator
to make the changes using C-Bus Toolkit software
(Version 1.12.7 or later) and a PC. There is also access to an Installer information page from the User Tools page
to view C-Bus
home automation system details, including the eDLT's field-programmable firmware version, C-Bus network
voltage, C-Bus unit number and serial number.
To access the Tools page on a C-Bus eDLT home automation wall switch, simply press and hold the left side of the
bottom button and then also press the right side of the top button.
You may only access the Tools page on an eDLT wall switch if this access has not
been disabled via Toolkit software. (The "disable accesss to units tools page" tick box must be left
unticked in the eDLT unit dialog > General Settings tab > General Options area by your
C-Bus systems integrator.)
- Slick proximity sensing.
Proximity sensing now detects your hand approaching within approximately 10cm of the eDLT switch fascia. The eDLT switch may then automatically change from the informational
home automation Standby page to a normal user page, issue a C-Bus group address command, or both -
as well as bringing the display and button backlight intensities up from their lower standby levels.
- More advanced scene cycle, toggle, ramp and nudge button functions.
Your Clever Home automation Engineer may program individual
eDLT buttons to support one of four different advanced scene control modes:
- Scene Cycle allows you to use a single eDLT switch button to cycle through a list of up to 8 scenes,
with the names of each scene appearing on the screen next to the button. The eDLT switch may be programmed to either
invoke the scene as soon as it is display, or to prompt you to long-press the button to invoke the displayed scene,
depending upon which method is most appropriate for the scenes being implmented.
- Scene Toggle mode allows a single eDLT switch to set a single scene on, and also to set all of the C-Bus home
automation groups associated with the scene off.
- Scene On/Off & Ramp mode also enables the scene groups to be ramped up/down with a long-press.
- Scene On/Off & Nudge mode allows scene groups to be stepped up/down with short presses.
- More intuitive preset value button functions and custom labels.
home automation devices with 2-4 commonly used preset levels (including zero) may be
more easily controlled using the eDLT's new labelled Multi-level button support. Examples include:
- Ceiling sweep fans
with preset values labelled "Off", "Slow", "Medium", "Fast".
with preset values labelled "Closed", "Pin Holes", "Half Open", "Fully Open".
- Window actuators
with preset values labelled "Closed", "Narrow Open", "Open", "Wide Open".
- Multi-room audio volume
with preset values labelled "Off", "Background", "Normal", "Loud".
- Plus whatever other custom devices and labels you would like to use in your automated home.
This eDLT Multi-level button support is in addition to the eDLT's advanced scene support, so you
don't need to use any of the eDLT's scenes to support the Multi-level button functions.
- Easy to install, relocate, or service.
An advanced new eDLT quick fix wall bracket with strong rare-earth magnets allows the eDLT to be
easily installed and removed from the wall. Removeable C-Bus cable connectors also make
it easy to disconnect/reconnect the switch. Together these features make it is easy to relocate
C-Bus eDLT switches around your home without using a screwdriver.
For commercial/industrial installations where you want to affix your eDLT more strongly, a secure
attachment option is designed into each eDLT switch and bracket. The front fascia caps above and
below the eDLT buttons may be removed and screws put through the eDLT switch into tapped holes
provided in the quick fix mounting bracket.
The quick-fix metal bracket comes with each eDLT and is screwed to the brick or plasterboard wall
onto the standard 84mm mounting centres of a wallbox or in-wall bracket that is behind the plasterboard.
A slight recess behind the eDLT accommodates the bracket so the eDLT sits flush against the wall.
The eDLT quick-fix bracket is also available as a separately orderable part.
The C-Bus Toolkit software used by your C-Bus systems integrator features a new WYSIWYG display editor
to make it easier for them to create a clear functional display for each eDLT button.
You can get the most from your eDLT switches by engaging support from the most highly qualified and
experienced C-Bus systems integrator
available to you. As with other wired C-Bus home automation devices,
each eDLT wall switch must be programmed, and work as part of a larger well designed and
installed C-Bus system.
C-Bus eDLT models: 5085EDLB-SS,
5085EDLB-EB, 5085EDLB-HB, 5085EDLW-PW and 5085EDLW-OM.
