X10 Micros in USA?
« on: August 05, 2010, 06:26:55 AM »

Hi everyone, I can't seem to find any X-10 micros that turn your existing light switches into x10 that is FCC certified or for USA.  Maybe I'm wrong?  I'm looking for something like the Marmitek aw12.  Thanks for any help.

I have not seen any Micro Modules or equivalent devices for the 120 Volt 60 Hz US market.
All that I can find are the 230 Volt 50 Hz ones.

Basically you want to put a module behind a standard wall switch and send X10 signals with it.

Do you think this is because such products cannot be certified? FCC, CE and UL?

Well the Micro Modules are CE already as they are used in Europe.

Yes the RF sending devices would need FCC Approval as the European ones are 433.92 MHz and ours are 310 MHz.

They seem to be a Marmitek product and I don't think they have any interest in our territory.

Also I am not sure there would a great interest here for such modules.
