PHW03?
« on: May 13, 2010, 07:09:53 PM »

I have seen many different X10 modules since I started automating.
I saw a three button wireless switch that looks like a Stick A Switch with no bright and dim features.
Is this some old stock or maybe an OEM that X10 found in some warehouse?

Its old. 1980s vintage. I have several of the four switch models (no Dim, just four On-Off rockers) and they are Radio Shack marked on back only with a peel off label, so you might be right, X10 may have bought all the old Radio Shack stuff peeled of the labels and now selling them. There was a two rocker version also.

So I guess they are cleaning out a warehouse or found a some pallets in an obscure place.  ;D

Kind of like the X10-HD243s that I got from an EBay dealer as New and Unused. They didn't say recently made. Where made by BSR (USA) Date Code 2J42 and I don't think that is 2002 probably not even 1992.  rofl

No. four AAAs in a +3V, -3V design like the old Palm Pads.


I think it was in the early 90s Radio Shark cleared then out for $1 each.
