PLC Applications

street lights

Narrowband PLC had been around for many years, but only with the recent advancements in technology, increasing needs in M2M connectivity and the awareness for better resource management, it is gaining the momentum that it deserves as the most ubiquitous network medium available.

The most prevalent use of NB-PLC today is in connecting consumer to utilities for Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and load control - Smart Grid. Such systems have long been a favourite at many utilities because it allows them to move data over an infrastructure that they control. Other rapidly emerging applications include Street Light Control (SLC) and Smart Appliances. In addition NB-PLC starts finding its way into a wide range of applications involving electrically connected devices requiring monitoring and control, such as vending machines, solar panels, electrical vehicle charging and other data gathering and control systems.
