Power Line Communication


Power-line communication (PLC), also known as power-line carrier, is one of the communication technologies that uses electrical wiring to carry both data and transmit alternating current (AC) electricity. PLC technology thus enables data transmission on existing electrical power lines, saving costs by eliminating the need to install new wires.

Anapex PLC IC solutions support both BFSK and OFDM as modulation methods. Having passed strict examinations on environments of field sites and tough specifications, our PLC products are extensively used in the Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) operations of smart grid systems including smart meters, concentrators and collectors. In addition, PLC technology has expanded to the markets like EV supply equipments (EVSE) and smart home applications.
