Power Line Communication will give you a far greater communication bandwidth for smart grid applications. Compared to wireless access technologies PLC offers immediate communication even during the installation process which means that you and therefore the customer, bypass costly waiting times. There is no antenna tuning and no adjustment to antenna direction. One of our favourite pros for PLC is that in difficult environments, such as deep underground installations, communication is still possible. PLC is ideal for Smartgrid, it’s less expensive and uses existing electrical wiring.
A PLC is a Programmable Logic Controller. More simply, a special computer device used for industrial control systems. Wherever there is a requirement to control devices, the PLC provides a flexible way to software the components together.
PLC’s come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, some so small they could fit in your jeans pocket. Your programming and control requirements will determine the size of your required PLC.
