Erratic Control of Low Wattage Loads
on September 12, 2015
I have used these modules for about 20 years with great success. I ordered two more to expand my system. The new detailed specs and instructions that come with the unit say that the minimum load which will be reliably controlled is 40W. The control of a load less than 40 watts may be erratic. I have always used these to control a home sound system where many of the elements consume less than a watt and none of them consume 40 watts. One of the two that I received will not work on my low wattage expansion elements and I assume that the problem is low wattage consumption. I have explored the specifications at several sellers of these items and on the X10 website but the the minimum wattage is not on any of those sites. You won't know about this until you get the units.
