Power line Communication and Control Module utilizes the existing power line infrastructure, both indoor and outdoor, for networking and communication thereby eliminating the expense and inconvenience of new wires or antenna-based networks. For PLC Communication, Ariane’s PLM-1 PLC Modem Chip is used.
On-board current sensor, LEDs, RS232 debugging port, Hex-Rotary Switch and a controllable relay are available to enable application developers to create their own solutions.
Uses Existing Power Line for Communication
Communication is done on the existing power line. So that there is no need to carry a separate cable or create a RF channel in order to communicate between devices.
Because electrical power is a universal wiring network, power line communication (PLC) is becoming an excellent choice for many applications including:
– Smart Energy applications,
– Home and building automation,
– Renewable energy management,
– Public lighting,
– Advanced metering,
– Plug-In Electric Vehicles,
– Street Light Management.
On board PLM-1 PLC Modem Chip provides efficient error detection and error correction algorithms in order to make reliable communication in very noisy electrical environments possible. Transmission rate can be programmed from 100 bps to 30,000 bps.
On Board Current Sensing
On board Current Sensor can be used to monitor the current connected to the unit.
Easy Device Addressing
By using Hex-Rotary switch, address assignment has become simpler. Keeping deployment time and possible user errors in mind, hex rotary switch provides a fast and reliable operation during the installation and maintenance.
DIN-Rail enclosure easies mounting and saves time required for the deployment.
