Product Description


  • 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 AM12U is NOT suitable for use with LED bulbs due to the auto-sensing feature
  • Auto-sensing feature allows the AM12U to be used with a table lamp with an inline switch. The light can be turned on locally with the switch without the need to turn the AM12U on.

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.
