Scenes- One X10/PLC signal from any X10 transmitter can simultaneously change the lighting levels of multiple SwitchLincs and LampLincs. Each SwitchLinc and LampLinc (scene capable models only) can be programmed to respond to 64 X10 signals. When the SwitchLinc receives the signal, it will ramp up to its individual, user defined brightness level.
Signal Bridge- A device that allows X10/PLC signals to travel from one leg of your split-single-phase electrical system to the other. A Signal Bridge is the same as a Phase Coupler.
SignaLinc- The SignaLinc is a Plug-In alternative to hard-wired Signal Bridges.
SignaLinc RF- SignaLinc RFs create your dual-mesh INSTEON network by simultaneously transmitting and receiving INSTEON messages across both radio frequency and your homes existing electrical wiring.
Slave- See Companion.
SPDT- (Single Pole, Double Throw) A property of a switch in which one terminal can be connected to one of two other terminals.
Soft-Start- See Fade-On/Off
Status & Status Request- Some X10 receivers like the SwitchLinc 2-way and LampLinc 2-way contain transmitters that can send X10 signals, giving them the ability to report their status when polled or controlled locally. When they receive a Status Request, they reply with their current status - ON, OFF, or DIM at some % level.
Switched-Leg- See load.
SwitchLinc PLC- This is the entry-level model. The key features are Fade-On and Adjustable Ramp Rate. This series was formally known as “SwitchLinc Lite”.
SwitchLinc RX- This is a two-wire version of the SwitchLinc line for homes and businesses that do not have neutral wires available.
SwitchLinc V2- An INSTEON-enabled in-wall controller that controls individual lights or triggers whole-house mood lighting "scenes" with the touch of a button.
