About A10 Devices|
A10 products are compatible with X10 products and have a 2 year warranty.
Smart Home Systems is an ACT authorized engineered systems center (ESC). Please contact us for assistance in providing an A10/X10 solution to your requirements.
A10 circuitry provides the following performance enhancements:
A10 circuitry provides the following new features:
- Signal Strength - A10 increases the signal strength of powerline transmitters form 3 volts peak to peak (VPP) to 6 VPP, effectively doubling the performance of ACT transmitters over competitive products.
- Receive Sensitivity - The A10 module also improves the performance of powerline receivers by reducing the required signal level to 25 mV from the 100 mV requirement of competitive receivers.
- Two Way Communication - A10 modules provide both receive and transmit capability, providing user confidence in reliable operation.
- Signal to Noise Ratio - Current competitive products have an AGC circuit that helps to overcome noisy environments. That AGC circuit requires a 2:1 ratio of signal to noise to operate reliably. The A10 circuit requires only a 1.35:1 ratio.
- Noise Threshold - The A10 circuit can operate in powerline environments with as much as 3 volts of noise. Competitive products quit operating if the noise level exceeds 1 volt.
- Automatic Acknowledgment (Yes/No) - Allows ACT to enable the device to automatically send its status after reception of a valid command.
- Respond to Status Request (Yes/No) - Allows ACT to enable the receiver to respond to a Status Request command, e.g. ON, OFF.
- Device address (Standard) - User programmable A10 receivers incorporate the use of external "push button " programming of the unit's address and operating characteristics.
Respond to All Units off (Yes/No) - User programmable to set individual devices to respond or ignore an All Units Off command.
- Handle Line Collisions (Yes/No) - User programmable to selectively set individual devices to respond or ignore an All Lights Off command.
- Handle Line Collisions (Yes/No) - User programmable for collision detection strategy.
- Respond to All Lights On (Yes/No) - This feature is similar to the All Lights Off command. User programmable to set an individual device to respond/ignore an All Lights On command.
- Polite? (Yes/No) - User programmable to enable the transmitter to wait for 8, 9 or 10 zero crossings of silence on the power line before attempting to transmit its data.
- Allow Changing the packet Redundancy (1, 2, 3, or 4) - This feature allows ACT to adjust the packet redundancy transmission.
- Enable Priority Queuing (Yes/ No) - Allows ACT to enable the product for TX priority queuing based on the device's number code.
- Transmission locations (0°, 30°, 60°, 90°, 120°, 150°) - Allows ACT to set how the device sends data on the power line.
