The PulseWorx UPB Plug-In Appliance Module (12A) is a high quality plug-in home automation relay load controller that is capable of transmitting and receiving digital commands and status over the existing powerlines. It's perfect for remotely controlling one or more 120VAC non-dimming appliances up to 12 Amps. Simply plug the AM1 into any standard wall outlet and then plug the appliance into the AM1's bottom controlled outlet. A pass-through outlet allows plugging in vacuums, computers, and other devices that do not require remote control. The AM1 will accept powerline commands from any UPB-compatible transmitter such as the PulseWorx Keypad Controllers, Timed Event Controller, Interface Modules, Approved Third-Party Controllers, Touch Screens, and WS1s. It can be a member of up to 16 Links/scenes with the capability to store a pre-set relay state of 0% or 100%. Each pre-set state can easily be adjusted by the homeowner using the innovative PulseWorx manual programming method. Each Appliance module can be configured to transmit status changes and inform the rest of the network when the Timed auto-off function has automatically turned the appliance off. This allows the AM1 to remotely control other devices or update indicators (LEDs on our keypads). Like all PulseWorx devices, the AM1 can be initially configured using PCS's free UPStart Setup Software tool. UPStart enables configuring such parameters as Network Name, Network ID, Unit ID, Room name, Device name, default on light levels, fade rates, LED colors, dimming disable, auto shut-off time, etc. as well as test the operation and communication strength of the device. UPStart has the option to configure an entire network off-line and then download the information into the devices after they are installed in the home.
