HOW DOES MARMITEK X-10 WORK?
Marmitek X-10 components use the existing mains wiring to
communicate (using Marmitek X-10 signals). You can build a
complete system using the three different kind of components
of the Marmitek X-10 System:
1. Modules: These components will receive Marmitek X-10
signals and will switch or dim the attached lamp or appliance.
Examples of these modules are lamp modules and appliance
modules. These are available as build-in, micro, DIN rail and
plug-in modules.
2. Controllers: These components will transmit Marmitek X-10
signals and thus will control the Modules.
3. Transmitters:Wireless components like remotes. The
signals of these components will be received by a controller
with transceiver functionality (IRRF 7243, TM13,
CM15Pro…..). The Transceiver will translate the signals into
Marmitek X-10 signals on the power line.
ADRESSES
Up to a maximum of 256 different addresses can be preset.
These are subdivided into a so-called HouseCode (A to P
incl.) and a UnitCode (1 to 16 incl.). The HouseCode can also
be set on the controllers, so that the controllers and modules
become part of the same system. The address can be set
either using code dials or by pressing buttons, depending on
the type of module.
The Marmitek X-10 System uses standard commands, which
control all units with the same HouseCode at the same time
(e.g. all lights on, all units off, etc.).

SIGNAL RANGE
Range of Marmitek X-10 signals over the Power Line and
how to increase the range.
The Marmitek X-10 System is based on power line
communication. The range of the Marmitek X-10 signals very
much depends on the local circumstances. On average the
range is a cable length of 80 meters.
If you have difficulties with the range of your Marmitek X10 signals, please pay attention to the following facts:
1. When more than one phase is used for your electrical
system, it is necessary to couple these phases for the
Marmitek X-10 signals. For coupling you can use FD10 Phase
Couplers/Filters. You only need to install a Phase
Coupler/Filter when your wall outlets and light switches are
divided over more than one phase (more than one group is no
problem). For bigger buildings or longer distances we advice
you to use an active repeater instead of passive FD10’s.
2. It is possible that Marmitek X-10 signals are attenuated by
devices and lights which are connected to the power line. In a
normal home situation this effect is negligible (the Marmitek X10 system is using active gain control to eliminate the effects).
However, it is possible that a particular device in your house is
attenuating the signals so much that the range of Marmitek X10 signals is decreased significantly. When you have range
problems, it is wise to try to locate the device which is
attenuating the signals simply by unplugging devices from the
power line, and testing the differences in range for your
Marmitek system. When e.g. your conclusion is that e.g. your
computer monitor is attenuating the signal, you can use a
FM10 Plug-in Filter between the power line and the monitor to
eliminate the effects.
Known devices which can cause attenuation are:
PC Monitors
PCs with heavy internal power supplies
TM13
5
Old Televisions
Copiers
Fluorescent Lights
Gas Discharge Lamps (Energy Saving Lamps)
3. Some (old) devices are able to disturb the signal by
transmitting noise on the power line. Because the Marmitek X10 signals are transmitted on 120 kHz, only noise on or near
this frequency will have influence on the range. When you use
a FM10 Filter to connect this device to the power line, the
noise will be filtered.
4. The Marmitek X-10 protocol has several mechanism to
avoid modules to be switched on or off by other sources than
your Marmitek X-10 Controllers. However, it is possible that
the Marmitek X-10 signals are disturbed by e.g. baby phones
which are in TALK mode (continuous transmission). When
these kind of signals are present on the power line it is
possible that the Marmitek X-10 signals will not come through.
5. The mains do not stop at the front door of your home.
Everything that is attached to mains nearby your home can
have influence on Marmitek X-10 signals (e.g. heavy
machinery). If you think that your system is influenced by
devices out of your house, it is advisable to install FD10
Phase Coupler/Filter on each phase entering the house.
These filters will block signals coming into or going out of your
house, but will also match the impedance for the mains.
Hereby make your house Marmitek X-10 compatible for these
units. The FD10’s will not only filter but will also couple the
phases (please see 1).

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations with your purchase of the Marmitek X-10
HOME CONTROL TM13 Transceiver. Among other things,
the TM13 Transceiver allows you to use your Marmitek X-10
remote control to operate your X-10 switching and dimming
modules, wherever you are in your house.
How does it work?
The TM13 is a controller that is activated by transmitters. The
controller operates Marmitek X-10 modules via the mains to
switch your lighting and appliances on and off. This means
that the TM13 forms the heart of your Marmitek X-10
installation.
The TM13 Transceiver operates with the following
transmitters:
•
Marmitek X-10 remote controls such as the EasyControl8
and the EasyTouch 35.
•
The SS13 slimline wireless switch (the ideal solution for
situations that require an (additional) switch without
having to fit wires. Can be fitted to walls, glass, doors,
tables, etc.)
•
The KR22 wireless remote control (an attractive extraslim remote control for operation of Marmitek X-10
Modules from a distance. Can be used as a key ring.
Can be used to control three addresses + dimmer
function.)

•
The MS13 wireless motion sensor with memory
(switches lighting and appliances on when someone is
present and switches them off again afterwards.
Switches on interior and exterior lighting when arriving
home in the dark.)

FIRST USE OF THE TM13
1.
2.
3.
4.
Set the HouseCode (A to P) of the Home Control TM13
Transceiver to the same code as you have set your other
modules. The UnitCode cannot be set and will always be
‘1’. If the TM13 is set to HouseCode ‘P’, all commands
from remote controls will be converted into an X-10
signal over the mains, regardless of the HouseCode. The
HouseCode used will in this case be the same as the
HouseCode of the remote control.
Point the antenna upwards.
Plug the Home Control TM13 into a socket (preferably in
a central location of your house).
Insert the plug of an appliance or light in the module.
This can now be controlled using the ‘1’ button of your
remote.
Normally speaking, only one TM13 will be required per
installation if wireless controllers are used that are set to the
same HouseCode (Does not apply to TM13EFL). The TM13
includes a so-called ‘collision detection’ system. This prevents
problems from occurring when several TM13 modules are
used and it allows expansion of the RF range by using several
TM13 modules that are set to one and the same HouseCode.
The module responds to the following Marmitek X-10
commands: ‘ON’, ‘OFF’ and the Marmitek X-10 group
command ‘All Units Off’.

FREQENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the reason for modules to switch on/off
spontaneously?
It is possible that a Marmitek X-10 System is installed at one
of your neighbours using the same House Code. To solve this
problem try to change the House Code of your system, or
have FD10 Phase Coupler/Filter installed at your incoming
mains.
My modules will not respond to my controller.
Make sure that the House Code on all Modules and
Controllers are set to the same House Code (A .. P).
Am I able to increase the range of my remotes by using
more Transceivers?
Yes, you can use more than one TM13 Transceiver in your
home when the range of your remotes is not sufficient. The
TM13 is using so called collision detection to prevent signals
to be disturbed when more than one TM13 is transmitting.
TM13’s will wait for a quite power line before transmitting their
data. To prevent your Marmitek X-10 System to become slow
or to prevent dimming from becoming less smooth, make sure
that the TM13 units are placed as far away from each other as
possible.
