Yes, we offered a 240V 50Hz single-output version of the XTB-IIR.  We even made a customized version for an automation dealer in the UK who added a UK outlet on the cover for the X10 Boost input.  We also offered a 240V 50Hz version of the XTB-232.  Eventually I dropped the 240V 50Hz products because of low demand.

Yes I can understand that decision. I know there isn't a huge demand for X10 equipment these days but to have equipment available with your class of fabrication is practically unheard of now. I'll keep an eye out on the likes of eBay to see if your equipment comes up for sale. I'd really like to try it,

IIRC, Cenelec regulations limit PLC amplitude to 2.5Vpp. That is probably why X10 quickly died in Europe after the regulations took effect.
