The Cresnet® bus is the communications backbone for many Crestron® keypads, lighting controllers, shade motors, sensors, and other devices. Cresnet is a simple, yet flexible 4-wire network that provides bidirectional communication and 24VDC power for Cresnet devices. Cresnet allows for both homerun and daisy-chain wiring topologies, with cable lengths up to approximately 3000 feet (915 meters) per run.
Within a single non-plenum PVC jacket, CRESNET-NP contains (1) 18 AWG pair for 24VDC and Ground, and (1) 22 AWG shielded twisted pair for control data. CRESNET-NP is available in four colors: teal, orange, black, or white.
For plenum applications, use CRESNET-P.
For long runs to devices that draw a large amount of power, use CRESNET-HP-NP.
