X10 Technology


X10 is Powerline Carrier Protocol (PLC):
allows compatible devices to communicate
using existing 110V wiring at home


X10 transmitters send coded low voltage
signal that is superimposed over the 120V AC


X10 signals involve 1ms long 120k Hz bursts
representing digital information


Effective data rate: 60 bits/sec
