The signal transmission of high frequency pulses via
the mains network can be affected by active or passive
interferences. When used correctly, the filter/phase
coupler will extensively suppress these interferences.
Typical active interference sources are appliances that
do not conform to the EMC regulations. In addition
there are wireless intercommunication systems which
use mains borne signaling. They transmit high
frequency signals into the mains network.
These disturbances are usually carried into the house
network from outside, e.g. from neighbours or
industrial installations. They are suppressed by the
filter/phase coupler. Remaining interferences
generated within the house network are without
significance as the special dynamic filtering techniques
of the X10 system ensure undisturbed performance.
The FD10 also includes the ability to couple X10 signals
across phases. For installation with three phases, use
three FD10 filters and couple the filters by connecting
their terminals K to the next phase, respectively.
