Physical layer The physical layer in an X-10 system transmits data over the power lines. The challenge is to send the signal reliably, with relatively low-power, inexpensive electronics. X-10 chose a simple scheme using a tone or its absence to convey a one or zero data bit, respectively, and uses redundant signaling to help improve reliability. Figure 1-3 shows the fundamental approach. An X-10 transmitter will output a 120 kHz tone in a 1 ms burst starting when a rising line voltage crosses the zero point.
Reactive loads have capacitive and/or inductive components, in addition to the resistive load, that make the loads unsuitable for control by triac semiconductor devices that modify the AC waveform. 15 16 Part I — In the Basement FIGURE 1-9: Appliance module A triac is a three-terminal semiconductor device used by all modern dimmers to control an AC line. Two of the terminals form a path for the load current, while the third terminal turns the device on (the triac turns off at every zero crossing of the AC waveform).
