    Re: Alternative to Ivac's high price

    I've been using the X-10 system of transceiver and receiver modules for well over 13 years now. The receivers are HD245 Heavy-Duty Appliance modules which work with either 120V or 220V. I think they're called PAM04 now. So I carry a small FOB around my neck that controls 2 transceivers. I can start/stop 2 dust collection systems here. Over the years I have had to replace 1 HD245 module, but otherwise it still works fine with 2HP dust collectors.

        Would you like me to get you a quote?

        What motor HP/voltage?

        regards, Rod.

          Thanks Rod. I will try a couple of other places locally first. I wander if he misunderstood what I was looking for.
