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 WWW.Smarthome.com. It is called a ""noisy device filter""
