Product Overview

The AC164142 is a consumer band BPSK 7.2Kbps power line soft modem PICtail Plus daughter board. provides communication over power lines using a binary phase shift keying modulation scheme. These boards interface to the popular explorer 16 development board and operate in the CENELEC C consumer frequency band at a carrier frequency of 129.6KHz. The software modem runs on the dsPIC33F digital signal controller and utilises an analog front end to interface to the AC power mains. Each of the communication nodes utilises a high voltage adapter cable that connects the consumer band BPSK Based 7.2Kbps power line soft modem to the AC mains. The HV adapter cable incorporates the circuitry required to provide the noise filtering and isolation from the power line.
