Product Features

    • The ATPL360 EK comprises two PL360MB modem boards, allowing evaluation of point to point Power Line Communications performance.
    • Four "coupling boards" are attached to the kit, addressing the following frequency bands:
      • Two PLCOUP007 coupling boards for frequencies below 100 kHz (CENELEC A profile)
      • Two PLCOUP006 coupling boards for frequencies between [150 .. 500] kHz (FCC / ARIB profile).
    • PRIME and G3 Power Line Communication protocols are fully supported.
