Domosys Corporation recently released a new OEM PLC Modem Card (OPMC) product for power line communication. The OPMC was designed to provide a cost effective PLC component with ease of integration into existing and new products using serial communication standards. Domosys’ OPMC can be used in a number of markets such as, but not limited to, energy management, street lighting controls, automatic meter reading (AMR), SCADA and transportation.
The OPMC is equipped with RS-232, RS-485 and RS-422 serial interfaces. It can be integrated and interfaced with existing serial communication products taking away the need to run serial communication wires throughout buildings or various equipments. The installation of the associated system is tremendously simplified since a simple connection to the closest electrical power line is required. Tenants are not disturbed and/or systems are not powered down during long installation and renovation periods.
In addition, using Domosys’ PowerBus(tm) RHINO Pass-Through Protocol topology, the OPMC becomes a plug & play product, no special software or firmware driver is required. If needed, the OPMC size, layout and functionalities can be easily adapted to specific requirements. While providing Power Line Communication on AC or DC power lines or twisted pair, the OPMC is a 12 VDC powered card and is UL Recognized. The OPMC also includes two I/Os to take an active roll and empower existing SCADA applications.
