It looks like it's meant to replace the CM11A (serial to X10 power line transceiver) and CM19A. The CM15A is X-10's latest PLC interface. It incorporates a 310MHz RF receiver, a 310MHz RF transmitter and a two-way PLC interface. It connects to a PC using USB instead of RS-232. ActiveHome Pro SW31A software not included. Conveniently connects via USB. Control X10 units from your computer and even over the internet! I've been running an X-10 home automation system for well over 20 years. The interface became erratic a few years ago. Replacing the CM15A fixed those problems. I'm a bit disappointed that the CM15A degraded over time, but pleasantly surprised that the replacement unit fixed my problems.
