ETL600 R4 - Power line carrier system

The secure communication solution for critical infrastructures.

Universal Power Line Carrier System ETL600 R4 (ETL600) is an advanced PLC solution for the transmission of speech signals, data and protection commands over high-voltage transmission lines. With its universal hardware and software architecture, ETL600 simplifies the decision between traditional analog and advanced digital PLC equipment.

Using the same hardware components, the operating modes Digital or Analog can be selected by the user on site with just a few mouse clicks. In addition to user-friendliness combined with application flexibility and unprecedented data transmission speed, ETL600 also guarantees unconditional compatibility with legacy environment and integrates well into modern digital telecommunication infrastructures.
