Controls 120VAC Plug-In Appliances

The PulseWorx UPB Plug-In Appliance Module (12A) is a high quality plug-in home automation relay load controller that is capable of transmitting and receiving digital commands and status over the existing powerlines.

  • Controls 120VAC plug-in appliances up to 12 Amps
  • Pass-through outlet powers devices that do not require UPB control
  • Programmable auto-off timer up to 120 minutes
  • Can be a member of up to 16 scenes


Simply plug the AM1 into any standard wall outlet and then plug the appliance into the AM1's bottom controlled outlet. The AM1 is white in color and designed for controlling non-dimming loads up to 12 Amps. A pass-through outlet allows plugging in vacuums, computers, and other devices that do not require remote control.

Receives From the Powerline

The AM1 will accept powerline commands from any UPB-compatible transmitter such as the PulseWorx Keypad Controllers, Timed Event Controller, Interface Modules, Approved Third-Party Controllers, Touch Screens, and WS1s. It can be a member of up to 16 Links/scenes with the capability to store a pre-set relay state of 0% or 100%. Each pre-set state can easily be adjusted by the homeowner using the innovative PulseWorx manual programming method.

Transmits To the Powerline

Each Appliance module can be configured to transmit status changes and inform the rest of the network when the Timed auto-off function has automatically turned the appliance off. This allows the AM1 to remotely control other devices or update indicators (LEDs on our keypads).

Easy To Configure

Like all PulseWorx devices, the AM1 can be initially configured using PCS's free UPStart Setup Software tool. UPStart enables configuring such parameters as Network Name, Network ID, Unit ID, Room name, Device name, default on light levels, fade rates, LED colors, dimming disable, auto shut-off time, etc. as well as test the operation and communication strength of the device. UPStart has the option to configure an entire network off-line and then download the information into the devices after they are installed in the home.

UPB PulseWorx Lighting Control System

An integral part of a complete PulseWorx Lighting Control System, this device uses the patented UPB powerline communication technology (invented by PCS) to reliably communicate with any other UPB-compatible devices over the existing house electrical wires. No new wires are necessary, thus making PulseWorx perfect for retrofit situations. When initial configuration is complete, a single push of a button is all you need to activate any group of lights (or virtually anything else that connects to AC power wiring) throughout the house simultaneously.
