Essential Info

In certain Powerline Control Components (PCC) applications it may be possible for an electrical appliance to generate electrical interference. This random electrical interference may interfere with the PCC command signal transmission. The ACT AC100 is an High Intensity Discharge (HID) choke intended for use with any PCC receiver where transient spikes from HID ballasts may interfere with PCC command signals to the receivers.

The AC100 is ideal when controlling a light that slowly gets brighter and brighter till it suddenly 'pops' on (just naturally - not with a dimmer). When that light 'pops' on, it will send a spike back through the line that can often be interpreted by A10 and X10 devices to be an off command. The AC100 Choke will block this spike and prevent the device from turning off.

  • More Info

    Powerline Control Components (PCC) are electronic controls designed for industrial and commercial installations. They can be used to provide centralized, automatic remote control of electrical loads by employing a power line carrier signal superimposed upon existing AC power lines supplying the loads. This concept offers a considerable saving in installation cost. Installed PCC components can be operated by utilizing the programming capabilities of a microcomputer which can control 256 separate addresses; each address switches up to 50 receiver modules and their respective loads as a group. With either the microcomputer or programmable controller, manual override can be exercised without affecting programmed memory. Wall mounted manual controllers for localized area control are also available.

    The PCC devices are compatible with the various distribution system voltage levels, either single or three-phase AC, that are normally encountered in industrial and commercial applications. PCC devices can be used to implement a spectrum of control strategies enabling time of day switching, duty cycling, and demand limiting to be programmed, and resulting in man-hour savings by relieving personnel from routine, manual switching operations.
