This Marmitek MicroModule can be installed behind a momentary type wall switch or into wall outlet because of its extremely small size 46x46x17mm (Minimum built-in depth 40 mm, advised 50 mm). The MicroModule is also ideal for installation into light fixtures or for use in areas with limited space such as rooms with lowered ceilings. and gives you the following benefits:

  • Two wire - no neutral required
  • Full X10 Control - Works with your existing X10 system
  • Dimmer for controlling 230V light bulbs, 230V halogen lamps and low-voltage halogen lamps with transformers ranging from 60 to 250 watts/230 volts.
  • Activated using a momentary action switch or using X10 PLC signals - use designer wall switches to make your own high-specification LW10!
  • It can be operated using the following Marmitek X-10 signals: ON, Off, DIM, BRIGHT and the optional Marmitek X-10 commands All Lights On/All Lights Off/All Units Off if these are programmed
  • Soft-start and dim and bright
  • Remembers it's last dim setting

What an excellent, if expensive, X10 unit. It does all that it sets out to do. The manufacturers do not do themselves any favours with their instructions. Installation was very straightforward, with the added bouns of the unit fitting behind the switch and so avoiding the necessity of lifting floor boards, etc to gain accesss to the house wiring. This is the only unit that I have been able to find that offers manual switching alongside X10 control. I use X10 for unattended working for security, but I also like to have the ability for manual intervention/override (just like a normal switch). I just wish that they would produce a LM12 like unit with the same capabilities, but at a LM12 like price. I had a little difficulty programming the unit initially to set up a unique house code etc., but a quick e-mail to Marmitek brought back a macro to do the job (why don't they include this in the CM15 release software in the first place?) And excellent and friendly service from UK-Automation!
