led security light
« on: November 18, 2019, 02:58:01 PM »

I installed a new led corn light to replace the mercury vapor light. When the light comes on there is several x10 lights in the circuit that will no longer work. When the light goes off the lights in the circuit now function. Is there any filter or other device I can use between the light and the power circuit to keep the x10 signals to the lights in the circuit?

If you are controlling the LED bulb with X10 module, then  the filter must go between the X10 module and the LED bulb. The closer to the bulb fixture, the better. Notheing past the filter will receive X10 signals. The filter works on noise and X10 signals as well.

Another solution is to put a hash choke in series on the hot lead from the module to the LED socket as described in http://jvde.us/x10/x10_cfl.pdf

I did exactly that after installing an LED pool light and it solved the problem.  The hash chokes are on ebay at ebay.to/2KMRRxa
