Digitalization and automation trends in many industries lead to an increasing need for information exchange over data networks. Power Line Communications (PLC) technology enables high-speed data communications over a power distribution network eliminating the need for a separate data network. The Power Line data bUS (PLUS) is a PLC technology specifically targeting safety critical systems with strict real-time and reliability requirements.
plc-tec AG develops and markets PLUS IP-cores and hardware reference design kits to customers looking to unlock the significant potential of a real-time and reliable PLC technology.
The main area of application for plc-tec’s PLC technology today is in vehicles such as airplanes and trains. In addition to reducing complexity and costs, the elimination of data cables and connectors also means less weight. This means fewer CO2 emissions – for a sustainable and green future.
