    Product Information and Application

    What is X-10 technology? It is a home control system that sends high frequency

    electrical signals that ""piggy-back"" the AC line to control common household

    items such as lights and appliances.

    The use of such technology does not adversely affect APC UPSs. However, a UPS

    or surge suppressor may absorb or filter out X-10 signals as UPSs and

    suppressors treat these signals as noise. The result, then, is that some X-10

    equipment may cease to receive signals.

    A possible solution is to install an X-10 isolator which prevents a UPS from

    filtering out these signals. One commercial solution is currently available

    from It is called a ""noisy device filter""
