Title (EN) DATA COMMUNICATION OVER A POWER LINE
(FR) COMMUNICATION DE DONNEES PAR LIGNE ELECTRIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A signal is received from a first portion of a power line (120) via a connection (200) to the power line and at least a portion of the signal is converted to a non-electrically conducting signal. The non-electrically conducting signal may be communicated to a non-electrically conductive communication path (500). In this manner, the non-electrically conducting signal may have properties that do not provide imminent danger from human contact.
(FR) L'invention concerne un signal reçu d'une première partie d'une ligne électrique via une connexion à celle-ci. Au moins une partie du signal est transformée en un signal non conducteur. Ce dernier peut être communiqué à une voie de communication non conductrice. De cette façon, le signal non conducteur peut posséder des propriétés ne représentant pas un danger imminent pour l'homme lors d'un contact.
