Slightly smaller than a PAM01 Appliance Module. No prongs out the back side and the connecting wires out the bottom.

3 7/8" Long
2.0" Wide
1 1/4" Thick

Wires on bottom:
#12 Black Hot
#12 Blue Load
#18 White Neutral [Can be smaller as only modules current runs through Neutral]

Are you sure that you say is about XPFM ?
If Yes, so XPFM long is 3 7/8", so its bigger thant a switch metal box case and impossible to insert them !

The XPFM is designed to be mounted inside a Fllourescent Light ceiling fixture for example.  Note the notice printed on the case. It has to go inside the fixture being controlled. I have one controlling my Fllourescent Light ceiling fixture in my Breakfast Room. (Where we eat. The Kitchen is whre we cook.)

So I can install inside an hexagonal (ceiling)box, but no in a rectangular box !
So I'm obligate to buy an 2476s because X10 don't sell one like this:

Yes I measured it and it is basically the same size as a X10 Appliance or Lamp Module with no inlet prongs on the back.
As mentioned it is made to go into a fixture and I believe will fit a box if a blank cover is used.

Also remember if you use the Smarthome one and have a three way setup. You need two of them since they do not use a traveler wire between the Master and the Slave. They get linked to each other.
Also it sends an X10 On or Off when locally toggled; on the X10 Primary Address it is set to. If you don't need scenes have you looked at the Icon version?

The 2876SB can as I have a few and did a test. They respond to the X10 Commands on the address they are programed to and when actuated send an on or off to the same X10 address it responds to. Just check your load on the switch. The Icon ones have a lower rating then the fancier ones.
The users manuals all on the web pages. You can look or download them and see what they can do.
