This PLC kit is designed for the development of narrowband PLC systems across the CENELEC frequency bands (35 kHz-121kHz). The kit includes a pair of PLC modems each using Texas Instruments’ PLC docking station and SOMPLC-F28PLC83 System on Module (SOM). The SOMPLC-F28PLC83 SOM is a single-board design for PLC in the CENELEC A frequency band. This single hardware design supports several popular PLC industry standards including G3 and PRIME. TI develops and provides the complete PLC software stacks along with the SoM. The PLC docking station includes the AC mains line coupling circuitry and system power management.

  • Complete PLC solution for G3 and PRIME across CENELEC frequency band.
  • Flexible hardware reference design suitable for production systems
  • High speed data transmission through Low-Voltage power lines
  • Connects easily with TI PLC Data Concentrator EVM (TMDSDC3359) for full network development

What's Included

  • Two modems included per kit
  • TI-supplied firmware for G3 and PRIME
  • Zero-config GUI tool to control and test modems
