A Faultless Plug® cordset protects against a shock from an appliance. One significant advantage of the patented, all-electronic Faultless Plug® is that cordset size and cost scale to the application. For applications requiring an average of 2.5 amperes or less, the Faultless Plug® can be built into a standard sized molded plug. For applications requiring higher currents, a variety of configurations are possible including an oversized plug or a panel or wall mount design.X-L Synergy's patented Faultless Plug® is an all-electronic solution to the problem of detecting and interrupting potentially hazardous electrical leakages in an appliance. When built into an appliance cordset, the Faultless Plug® enables the appliance to carry electrical shock protection to wherever it is plugged in. Because it does not require magnetics (no differential sense transformer is used), the Faultless Plug® is not subject to nuisance tripping even when set to sensitivities as low as 500 microamperes. The advantage to having this high sensitivity shock protection is to avoid incidental accidents related to the "startle reaction" that occurs when a person comes into contact with electrified conductors.
In the home of the future, all appliances within the home will be managed under remote control from a central computer. Since the Faultless Plug® already uses a custom integrated circuit, features such as the ability to transfer fault information or an appliance identifier code to a remote computer can be easily added to the Faultless Plug®'s integrated circuit at little additional cost over the cost of fault protection alone. It is now economically feasible to invest in solid state fault protection and simultaneously build in features that will make the appliance smart-house ready for the future. As such, the Faultless Plug® represents a bridge to the day when all appliances and houses are smart.
The OnSentryTM shock protection modules were originally developed with a CEBus® interface to give both appliance control as well as shock protection. The technology can be applied to exclusively stand-alone (no CEBus®) shock protection.X-L Synergy welcomes inquiries on adding AC line control and electrical shock protection to other lighting and appliance control products.
For brightness fade, simply plug your lamp into the MagicPlug Fader then plug it into any standard outlet. Select full power or nightlight mode by cycling the lamp's power switch. Select a fader mode by cycling power to allow a 15 minute or 30 minute gradual fade from full brightness to nightlight mode – perfect for allowing baby to get to sleep. For use with 30 to 150 watt incandescent bulbs.
For lamp dimming, simply plug your lamp into the MagicPlug Dimmer then plug it into any standard outlet. By cycling the lamp's power switch, select full, half, quarter or night light mode (eighth power). For use with 30 to 150 watt incandescent bulbs.
