This is the X-10 PRO brand whole house blocking coupler filter model number PZZ01. You use this if you have problems with X10 signals entering via the powerline from another home. Prevents your X10 powerline signals from leaving via your homes AC wiring. Also serves as a passive phase coupler for up to 3 phase AC systems. The way the PZZ01 works is it senses the presence of X10 signals and generates an offsetting voltage signal to cancel it out. While this will remove any stray signals coming in on the powerline say from your neighbors X10 system, it will also reduce the overall signal strength of your own system. If this happens, you may need to add an XPCR signal booster to make up for the reduced signal strength.
NOTE: The picture shows for use on up to 200 Amp service. You'll receive the newest version for use on up to 250 Amp service. It mainly depends just on the size of the neutral wire if it can fit thru the blocking channel or not.
