Yitran provide a new RS485 to PLC platform that enables seamless integration with existing RS485 or

Yitran provides RS485 to Power Line Communication (PLC) transparent bridge for Split Meter, IHD, Prepaid Meters and other AMR/AMI/AMM applications.

Yitran Communications, a leading and award winning Powerline Communication fabless semiconductor company, announce a new RS485+ platform that provides a transparent bridge between RS485 ready applications such as AMR/AMI/AMM, Split Meter, IHD, Prepaid Meters and more to Yitran's powerline communication IC's and modules.


The RS485+ platform is available for Yitran's low cost IT700 7.5Kbps DCSK based PLC modem IC. In the future the platform will be also be adopted for Yitran's IT1000 , a 1Mbps OFDM flex PLC modem IC that implements different OFDM based standards such as Prime, G3, G.hnem and IEEE 1901.2

Yitran provides also RS485+ evaluation kit which include the RS485+ adapter, a ready to use, full power line communication adapter, a coupling unit and power supply.
The adapter has two connections, one for the powerline and the other for the RS485 interface.
Connecting two units and more to an existing RS485 based system will initiate an instant full networking communication over the powerline grid.

"The RS485+ platform will allow vendors an easy migration from ready AMR/AMI/AMM RS485 or RF based systems to the most reliable power line communication networking solution known, enabling the elimination of the wire or the extension of the RF coverage, especially into the home", Said Avner Matmor, President and CEO of Yitran. "We also managed to reduce the cost of the IT700, our legacy and extremely robust DCSK solution, and we made it very attractive for low cost applications such as Prepaid and Split-Meters."

Customers will be able to implement the conversion from RS485/RF to PLC without the need to change the original system interface, simply by connecting to Yitran's transparent bridge.

Kits and modules will be available to order on November 2012.

Yitran will demonstrate the RS485+ platform at the Metering Billing/CRM Europe in Amsterdam, October 9-11, 2012 at booth F42.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
