PL 3000 Series Smart Transceivers

The PL 3000 Series Power Line Smart Transceivers integrate a Neuron processor core with a power line transceiver, making them ideal for appliance, audio/video, lighting, heating/cooling, security, metering, and irrigation applications.

Key Features

  • Combines an ANSI-709.2 compliant Power Line Transceiver with an ANSI 709.1 Compliant Neuron® 3120 or Neuron 3150 processor core
  • Designed to comply with FCC, Industry Canada, Japan MPT, and European CENELEC EN 50065-1 power line communications regulations
  • Supports CENELEC A-band and C-band operation
  • Dual carrier frequency mode and digital signal processing
  • 4K Bytes of embedded EEPROM for application code and configuration data on the PL 3120 Power Line Smart Transceiver and 0.5K Bytes of embedded EEPROM for configuration data on the PL 3150 Power Line Smart Transceiver
  • Interface for external memory for applications with larger memory requirements(PL 3150 Power Line Smart Transceiver only)
  • 2K Bytes of embedded RAM for buffering network data and network variables
  • Full duplex hardware UART and SPI serial interfaces
  • 12 I/O pins with 38 programmable standard I/O modes to minimize externalinterface circuitry
  • -40 to +85°C operating temperature range
