Essential Info

Xantech's CSM1 gives you a simple way to control multiple devices depending on the power state (on or off) of any one device - when you turn on your TV, it can tell the rest of your AV system to power up. Plug this module into the 110VAC supply, plug the "master" device into the module, and connect the signal lead to a CBCSM1 Current Sensor Connecting Block or MRC44 controller (sold separately).


What's Included

  • Xantech CSM1 Current Sense Module
  • Instructions
  • More Info

    Variable Current Threshold
    The current-sensing threshold can be adjusted to any value between 20mA and 10A. Status LED indicates when the "master" component is on or off, and assists you when setting the threshold adjustments.

    Part of a Versatile Control System
    This Current Sensor is only one of a wide range of sensors to send signals to your programmable controller. Here's the complete list:

  • Current Sensor Connecting Block and Current Sensing Module - work together to sense whether your "master" component's power is on or off
  • Audio Sensor Module - senses audio signals from a CD or MP3 player, etc
  • Video Sensor Module - senses video signals from a satellite receiver, DVD player, etc
  • Audio Sensor Module - trigger events with audio signals from your iPod dock or AM-FM tuner
  • Magnetic Sensor Module - uses the magnetic field surrounding AC wiring, CRT monitors, or AC motors
  • LED & Light - signals when it detects light
  • Contact Closure - triggers upon contact closure

    This device would be so much more useful if it was standalone. It really needs two things: 1 power from AC. 2 better current output. The output is 9v 15 mA which is not enough to trigger most relays. I ended up having to add a 12v supply and a relay driver circuit to make it a complete projector screen trigger. It would add a small amount of cost, but would make this device much more useful to the home theater crowd.

    Is not a "stand alone devise" Needs another module to pass on the 12 volt signal.
