Schematic of DSA-10 Needed

I am in need of the schematic of X-10's wireless security module DSA-10. Does anyone know where I could get one (multiple Internet searches came up empty for me)? (Don't want to have to trace out the PC board if I don't have to).

Maybe just point me in the right direction of where to look?

Thanks,

BSR

don't want to nitpick, but the reason you might not find much is because the model # is DS10A ;)

hehe, I really got to get off the caffeine!!

(Actually it's my eyes are giving out on me and I am still in the denial phase from wearing bi-focals ;) )

I just tried finding it. Man that baby is elusive!
I know it, I even had some seasoned long time X-10 veterans try to find that one with no luck. I really gave it the old college try before I gave up! :(

OK, I'll have to take one apart and check it out.

A new mini-project triggered this. My son wanted one of those safety toggle switches to control his bedroom light (the kind where you need to flip up the guard to turn it on).

I grabbed the switch and a little project box from Rat Shack and connected a DS10A. The cool thing is that when connected properly, the switch LED comes on. The bad thing is that this will drain the batteries quickly. I wanted to add a separate power supply for the LED.

Not following you Tony. Been a while since I played around with one, but I thought that no matter how you connected the wires together (via magnetic contact or external switch) the LED would only be on momentarily (i.e. not a static "on" condition).

If you found another way to have this "broadcast" on all the time with a switch let me know as that was one of the features I was trying to "hack" into this.

Thanks,
