WARNING! Eco-i-Lite inductive-charging emergency/flash lights
« on: November 21, 2012, 07:03:00 PM »

I have 2 different models (CT-L/F30 & NF-L200) of Eco-I-Lite inductive-charging walloutlet-mounted emergency/flash lights.

I have determined that both types interfere with/disrupt X10 wiring signals.

Now that I have removed these lights, I will reassess the performance of the SC1200 X-10 Security Console that I had previously boxed & shelved as unreliable.

If there is a Moderator here, you may wish to copy this warning to one or more other locations so that everyone visiting these forums knows of the Issue.

Thanks!

Thanks for your findings post.
Many devices seem to be X10 signal killers these days.
Let us know if the power line communications improve.
From your description. The problem devices plug directly into a wall outlet. So adding a filter would be difficult.

Correct.

FWIW, the problem devices were killing X10 signals issued by TM751 Transceiver Modules to Appliance/Lamp Modules.

A PITA, but my sister will be happy because she likes these emergency/flash lights as much as I do.  :)

Thanks, Brian.

Thanks for the added information.
From your details. I would think they where power line noise makers or signal suckers.
