All you need is a 0.10MF, 630V Capacitor across the 230VAC line.
It is the "bridge".  Radio Shack price $0.58.  Catalog# 90-2317.

X-10 will charge a LOT more.  I don't know what an "amplified bridge" is
but I
guess it is a repeater for the other side of  the 230 leg--It shouldn't
necessary.  The capacitor works for all installations I have done.  Just
put it
across any 230V breaker.

Good luck and--I'am ready for the flames.
