PLC TRANSFORMERS FOR SMART METERING:
Several systems can be used for the data communication within the new smart meter products. Aside from wireless connections such as GSM, PLC (powerline communications) systems are becoming increasingly popular.
In many systems, the combined data from several meters is sent via PLC to a concentrator for onward transmission to the data management centre using GSM technology. VAC Powerline transformers are commonly used in the meters, concentrators and in the controller units to which electricity, gas and water meters can be connected.
Our PLC products help to ensure the communications technology is galvanically isolated from the power network whilst faithfully transmitting the required signal. Our market leading PLC transformers feature a low distortion factor, a high excitation level and low design volume. For the most common modulation methods DCSK, FSK and OFDM, VAC offers optimised solutions in its product range for all major PLC chipsets from well-known manufacturers.
