Marmitek X10 Appliance Module AM12U

  • Marmitek X10 Appliance Module AM12U
Calculated at checkout


  • On/Off function to control an energy saving light, heater, fan, coffee maker, etc.
  • Designed to operate with 230V AC loads of up to 500W (incandescent lamps and halogen light) or 230W (motors) or 3600W (resistive loads)

The Marmitek appliance module is a receiver unit that works as a remote controlled switch or relay. You can plug it into any plug socket in the house and control the unit attached to it via X10 commands.


The appliance module can switch incandescent lamps up to 500W, appliances with electric motors up to 230W.

As the X-10 switch is simply inserted into wall sockets like an ordinary plug, there is no installation to be carried out. Just set the wheels on the front to the desired device address (eg. G7) and note this address down.

The load connected to the switch module can still be controlled locally by its own switch, but dont forget to leave the local switch in the "ON" position, as otherwise the load cannot be controlled by an X-10 controller. Switch the load off by remote control. The unit responds to "standard" X-10 commands. ie. All-Units-Off, On and Off.

  1. Geat Product

    Posted by Stuart L on 19th Dec 2012

    I have been using X10 for years and years now every year I increase my automation, recently I added a "Xmas circuit" so with one click of the mouse at Christams my house decorations go on (and off) beats running around the house and turning them on/off individually :) ... Excellant

  2. Working fine

    A little bit of trial and error to set it up with ActiveHome Pro, but now works fine.

  4. Marmitek X10 Appliance Module AM12U

    Posted by Boris the engineer on 15th Sep 2010

    This is my first use of X10. The modules work as advertised, though as control systems go they are
    a) noisy to switch (the internal relays make a pretty loud 'clunk' when switching.)
    b) slow. Taking any thring from 1second to 10seconds to actually switch. (Presumably this is an X10 limitation and is quite possibly related to individual circumstances - i.e. how much power line noise there is.)
