How X-10® fits into the Distribution Automation & Demand Side Management Market

"Brazilian electricity supply, in common with most countries, follows a pattern of peak and low consumption periods. CEMIG (Companhia Energetica de Minas Gerais, a State Electric Utility Company in Brazil) have identified that they actually already have the capacity to support a larger customer base, provided they can spread demand more evenly.

Power Line Signal Analyzer

"Up to 190 X-10 events can be recorded and stored into non-volatile memory to be played back at a later date. The Analyzer stores the identity of the received X-10 code, it's signal strength and the elapsed time from the start of recording."
