Powerline Carrier System

A method of sending information over an electrical power distribution system. A radio-frequency generator used to impose a high frequency signal on top of the existing distribution voltage sine wave (50-60 Hz).

Powerline Carrier signals are generally in the 2.5 to 9.5 kHz range. Some older systems operate at 19.5 kHz or higher.
