X-10 3, Switch Wiring - The pushbutton on the cs277 “companion” switch connects the pink result in the 2 blue leads. The blue leads are constantly connected collectively and convey the lamp current, so the pink lead is just a signal from the faraway button.
It makes use of a tubular 150 w halogen bulb, of the type commonly discovered in antique-skool torchier curtain-burner lamps, so an led retrofit isn’t in the playing cards. Lovely analyzing light on the table, murder on flying insects, and not a good deal to suggest from an energy saving point of view… [grin].
The kitchen light circuit has actual issues: when the light over the table turns itself off, the alternative switches may also or won't be controllable. That’s the third transfer i’ve had there over time, so it need to be noise.
Have you tried an am radio as a noise detector? I had a strength-fail mild with a charging circuit that might kill am reception all at some stage in the barn/store, irrespective of what circuits the lamp and radio were on. Must be enough harmonics to get to somewhere at the am band. I have 200a carrier for the barn. Comes in on hand. [Grin].
Not positive how nicely they play with x10, however what approximately trying an led lamp in that fixture? The brand new ones are dimmable, and the “40w” bulb from costco (feit electric powered preserve-strength) says they're 500 lumen. In quite a few packages, they seem to be brighter than the nominal 900 lumen “60w” 13w cfls. We hold our residence at 62f on the thermostat at night time, and it receives several degrees chillier than that in different rooms. Simply switched the front porch light to led; it’s pleasant having light right away. At 0c and underneath, a cfl was about like beginning a coleman lantern…. We’re now the use of a mix of 7.5w leds within the greater difficult furniture (dining room, pantry and bedrooms) and the use of the lifetime supply of cfls in less complicated-to-switch areas, just like the three-bulb fixtures in the kitchen. Fwiw, costco has a 9.5w “60w” bulb, however it’s heavy. Cree has one that’s appears to be same to their 7.5w. We’re the usage of the costcos as analyzing lamps; haven’t attempted the brighter cree. Costco has the 7.5w bulbs in three-packs for about $10. The cree nine.5w is ready $7 or $eight. I suppose the cree 7.5w is about $6 proper now. If i do lights in the garage (it’s unpowered), i’ll use leds.
