Vintage X10 Showcase
« on: January 01, 2011, 11:54:13 AM »

Let's see some pics of the really old stuff.





Here's my Radio Shack Plug 'n Power mini timer.   Cat. No. 61-2679A  Rated 2.5 watts.

Note the slider to select the unit address.

I think this is vintage 1984.  I picked it up as new old stock in 1989.  Was marked down from $79 to $16,  still have the original box.

Thanks for sharing you older X10 models with us.
I am sure there are many here that recognize them.

The original Sears "intro kit" had this Maxi Controller with a ultrasonic hand held remote control, a Lamp Module and an Appliance Module. Is your Maxi an ultrasonic model?

They made both Ultrasonic and non remote versions of this controller. I threw all my old ones away when X10 came out with the current low profile unit...like aluminum Christmas trees, they are now worth money.

Not ultrasonic, but I do have a radio shark ultrasonic unit out in the garage.  That unit was my very first venture into HA.

These items are still in service at the house.

Is the Appliance Module the one with a relay armature activating a micro switch, instead of the pulsed solenoid latching relay?

Here is most of my vintage stuff... there are a couple of mini controllers that are in use so I didn't include the pics here.
I also have the green florescent timer, but cannot find it right now....
The first pic shows an ultrasonic maxi with two remotes, a non ultrasonic, and one of my min controllers.
The third pic shows the old dark brown lamp and appliance modules and the "relay" that they used to use... a coil and a microswitch!
I also have 20 of the non soft start lamp modules that I am slowly replacing with softstart types, and 5 of the old appliance modules that are spares.  I do not consider these as vintage even though some are RCA/Radio Shacks and one lamp module is a Schlauge "emergency lamp module" that came with an old wireless Schlauge burglar alarm system.

I have one of those also!  Just can't find it right now....  I think mine was labeled BSR while my timer with the led display is a Radio Shack.
