Submersible Trigger X10 Devices to Turn On and Off Based on Water Temperature

April 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Minotaur Engineering XWVT X10 Water Variable Temperature Sensor/Controller

 

 

 

  • Trigger X10 devices based on temperature
  • Designed to be submerged in water up to 5 feet
  • Sensor connects to an X10 Powerflash Interface (sold separately)
  • Set a specific temperature to activate X10 controlled devices

 

The X10 Variable Temperature Sensor provides a way to sense temperatures and trigger X10 devices based on user settings. It interfaces to a standard X10 Powerflash Interface, sold separately, and supports a temperature range from approximately 25° F – 106° F.

The sensor is completely self contained and uses a sealed solid state transducer preset at the factory. The sensor should be placed in a location that will protect it from being frozen in ice and from direct sun, as well as no deeper than 5′ in water (to accurately reflect the ambient temperature). The control unit (with the temperature adjust potentiometer) must be protected from the elements. Depending on your application, the user selection of leads determines turning on or off devices based on whether the temperature is hotter than the set value or cooler than the set value. The user selects two leads (based on the table included), sets the approximate temperature using a small screwdriver, connects the sensor to the Powerflash terminals, plugs in the wall transformer, and places the sensor in the appropriate location.
