Features and Overview

  • Choice between three implementations:
    • FSK modem only
    • FSK modem with proprietary Powerline Communication Protocol
    • FSK modem with proprietary Powerline Communication Protocol along with built-in communication to external microcontrollers through I2C
  • Bidirectional half-duplex communication
  • Supports master and slave and peer-to-peer network topologies
  • Multiple masters on powerline network
  • Each device has a built in unique 64-bit address
  • For more, see pdf

The Powerline Transceiver (PLT) User Module gives a control interface within the PLC device for communicating between the application and the FSK Modem. The application may either run on the PLC device or on a separate device that communicates with the PLC device through I2C, RS232, or SPI. The I2C communication implementation is available as a user module option and does not require additional coding to operate.
