Note: The product is useful in Student Projects & Research Purpose as proof of concept. Its not suitable for commercial use.

Power line modem is useful to send and receive serial data over existing AC mains power lines of the building. It has high immunity to electrical noise persistence in the power line and built in error checking so it never gives out corrupt data. The modem is in form of a ready to use circuit module, which is capable of providing 9600 baud rate low rate bi-directional data communication. Due to its small size it can be integrated into and become part of the user’s power line data communication system.

Note: Pricing is for 1 quantity only. You will need atleast 2 unit to perform a test.
