Product Description

PLC-UART-LS is designed to transparently move serial data over the power line network at a speed of 2kbps, and achieves the target of replacing serial cables by the ubiquitous power line network.


On the PLC-UART-LS motherboard, there is a 20-pin receptacle. Users can choose different daughter boards, such as RS232, RS485, USB or Ethernet, based on the interface needs. The motherboard also support DIP by optional pins that can be used to directly plug to user's board without doing screwing.


PLC-UART-LS have built-in packet-level repeater function. This feature can greatly extend the coverage of the power line communication. PLC-UART-LS has both physical and logic addresses. In a network, both physical and logic addresses can be used to address different nodes in the network.

Don't forget the interface card.

  1. Did not perform as expected

    Posted by Jack Ryan on 11th Jul 2015

    did not support 19200 as advertised. the third one I connected blew up as soon as it was powered up. No traffic control (RTS/CTS)

    This is a mistake.
