Description: This is the the smart outlet enclosed transceiver module that is designed to send/receive serial data over power lines. LinkSprite smart outlet system consists of one or more smart outlet controller units and one or more smart outlets. The smart outlet system can be controlled by host (PC or MCU) through serial port using convent AT commands. Smart outlet can be turned on/off, report real time power, and report accumulated energy consumed remotely by LinkSprite powerline communication technology.
The smart outlet controller can also be configured to transparently move serial data over the powerline network, and achieves the target of replacing cables by the ubiquitous powerline network.
All LinkSprite modules, including smart outlet controller and smart outlet have the built-in packet-level repeater function. This feature can greatly extend the coverage of the powerline communication.
LinkSprite smart outlet controller and smart outlet have both physical and logic addresses. In a network, both physical and logic addresses can be used to address different nodes in the network, and can also broadcast within the same domain.
