X10 Micromodule Dimmer is Here

I’ve just received an email from IntelliHome with information on the long-awaited micromodule with integrated dimmmer. At over £100 and requiring a neutral it’s not quite HA Nirvana, but its a useful new module in the arsenal of X10 devices.

  • Local control via the switch attached to the module or remote control using Marmitek X-10.
  • Built-in dimmer, 250W.
  • Two-way X-10: transmits the set dimmer level to other LWM1, LD11 and LW11 modules (set to the same HouseCode and UnitCode).
  • Softstart and softdim.
  • Memory function for last dimmer setting.
  • Responds to ON, OFF, DIM, BRIGHTER and extended X-10 (dimmer setting originates from other LWM1 modules).
  • Can respond to All Lights On and All Off (configuration).
  • Choice between 1-face momentary switch or 2-face momentary switch.

Use & Applications

  • The MicroModule can be installed behind conventional wall switches or into wall outlets because of the extreme small size of the MicroModule (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.
  • Universal compatibility: No limitation in choosing brand, color or type of any wall switches and outlets.
  • Installation : 1-face momentary switch or 2-fase momentary switch:
  • “1-face momentary switch”: Spring-back switch without intermediate setting. 1 short press is ON, keeping the button pressed is DIM, second press is OFF. When connecting this type of switch, the brown and red wires are connected. The blue wire is connected to the P or L contact of the switch.

Colour coding for the 1-face momentary switch: Connect Red and Blue: alternating ON/BRIGHTER and OFF/DIM Blue: “COMMON”

o “2-face momentary switch”
Spring-back switch with intermediate setting. Both the top and bottom part of the switch can be pressed. Short press top is ON, long press top is BRIGHTER. Short press bottom is OFF, long press bottom is DIM. When connecting this type of switch, the brown wire is connected to the contact for the top part of the switch (ON/BRIGHTER) and the red wire to the contact for the bottom part of the switch (OFF/DIM). The blue wire is connected to the common P or L contact of the switch. Colour coding for the 2-face momentary switch:
Brown: ON/BRIGHTER
Red: OFF/DIM
Blue: “COMMON”
