Building & Industrial Automation
G3-PLC was developed to meet the industry’s need for a communication infrastructure that will enable the building and industrial Automation. G3-PLC facilitates high-speed, highly-reliable, long-range communication over the existing powerline grid. By using the existing powerlines, infrastructure costs are reduced and with its support of IPv6, G3-PLC will support powerline communications into the future.
Two-way communications networks based on G3-PLC provides intelligent monitoring and control capabilities. Operators will be able to monitor electricity consumption throughout the grid in real time, implement variable tariff schedules, and set limits on electricity consumption to better manage peak loads. In turn, consumers will have real-time visibility into their electricity consumption, thus promoting demand-side conservation. With the addition of variable tariff schedules, users will be encouraged to reduce electricity consumption during peak usage times.
Ultimately, intelligent network management techniques provide a smarter solution for the environment. Rather than build more power plants to support worst-case scenarios, network operators will be able to optimally utilize existing resources. At the same time, demand-side management will function as a form of indirect generation by better balancing the distribution of loads.
