Need to block X10 signal from appliance
Posted 24 November 2010 - 01:01 PM
Does anyone make an X10 filter that would block X10 signals? I've seen whole-house X10 blocking filters but I need something like a wall-wart version for the humidifier. Web searches only give me noise filters or whole-house blocking filters.
Short of finding such a device does anyone have a work-around to this type of problem? Presently, I unplug the humidifier when not is use. Sort of defeats the idea of home automation.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys. Ya, adding a new circuit is probably overkill for a humidifier. I'll check out the XPPF and see if it works 2-ways.
There are lots of brands of X-10 filters available. All work well, as its pretty easy to filter out X-10 with a low-pass filter.

Be careful with an XPPF. It maybe rated at five amps but in the X10 forums. We have seen them reported to overheat if pushed close to five amps.
WOW! That is good to know and thanks for passing along that info!
