    XPCR Repeater Amplifier

    Hi All, I have a quick question about the XPCR repeater/amplifier:

    If I am using this, do I also need to use a phase coupler? It seems that I wouldnt, but I have read at least two articles that recommend both /shrug

    the xpcr is a phase coupler, that is what the C in its name stands for, the R is for repeater

    you should be all set

      Awesome, thanks! I just got back from Lowes with a box to mount it in since I didnt want to just throw it in the breaker panel so now it's time to tear into the wall

        Do you have spare breakers or are piggy backing existing ones?

        I had to swap out full size breakers for skinny ones to avoid piggy backing

        Good luck

          I had one spare one in the panel from when I retro'd my closet for all of my networking and HA gear. I picked up an extra while at lowes so the repeater wouldnt be sharing a load with anything on either phase.

          I do wonder though, would it be ok to have the cm11a on the same circuit? If so then I can throw it all into this one box and be done. Right now my cm11a shares a socket with my washing machine.

            Since the xpcr is connected right at the panel and it couples the phases it is logically connected to every circuit thus shouldn't be a prob
