PLANET Systems Successfully Demonstrated ITRAN'S IT800D Narrowband Power Line Communication Modem IC Over the High Voltage Grid

PLANET Systems Co. Ltd (www.planetsys.co.kr), a leading provider of power line

communication (PLC) control and networking systems, has recently completed a successful trial
using ITRAN'S IT800D modem IC. The trial was held in South Korea for a major utility company.
PLANET'S IT800D based PLC modems successfully communicated over the high voltage
(22.9kV) grid, for a distance of 18km. The trial demonstrated the ability of using the high voltage
grid for applications such as automatic meter reading (AMR) and management of energy
distribution systems. PLANET'S design capabilities and the performance of the IT800D PLC
chip, enable the implementation of high performance low cost PLC metering and control
systems over the high voltage grid, in addition to in -home control systems and low voltage grid
remote metering solutions.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
