RobG 1,892 Posted October 9, 2011 Author Share Posted October 9, 2011 I wanted to see how X-10 signals and switching heavy loads will affect my light controller's zero-crossing detector, so I programmed my LauchPad to count pulses and display result once every second. In normal, interference free conditions, I expect to see steady 120, but due to internal clock's tolerance, I the count is alternating between 122 and 123. In my first test, I am using X-10 transmitter plugged to the same outlet as light controller. Once or twice I can see a hiccup where 123 is longer than expected (this could be clock's tolerance because this hiccup is cyclic,) but nothing major like 124+. In my second test, I am turning on and off 1200W Miele upright, lights in the room blink, but light controller is not affected. Quote Link to post Share on other sites
