On June 9th 2002, ATS Ltd, located in Amsterdam Holland, which commit themselves to designing, exploiting and creating advanced power line carrier wave lighting control technology declarethat they have developed another high-dependable low-cost power line communication technology¡ªPLC-BUS(Power Line Communication Bus). This technology holds super system stability and reliability, which provides costless intelligent controlling solutions for commercial residence. In terms of system function, reliability and the cost, the other power line controlling technologies can not be compared to PLC-BUS technology. The application of PLC-BUS includes lighting control, appliance control, HVAC control and the communication between net and the appliances. The market president of ATS Ltd ¨CPeter James says that PLC-BUS is the most successful power line carrier wave technology, besides the no-wire, low-cost for realizing intellectualization like the x10, the main advantage is that the signal of PLC-BUS is 20 to 40 times more stable than what the x10 is and we can check the ON/OFF status of Lights and Appliances. These features will promote the progress of networking of the appliances because he believes the coming of the age of appliances network. Actually, we can foresee the trend of the net times from the developing progress of the net. But there is no unification and low-cost intellectualized controlling net within the family which becomes the biggest problem in the development of appliance network. If we use the professional laying lines technology, it will greatly depress the feasibility and expansibility of appliance network. Turn our sights to PLC-BUS, it is the vary technology that can realize the interior intellectualization through the electric line. And its no-wire technique will make all the users including those who had even never tried laying-wires technique realize interior intellectualization easily in deed, which will also speed up the coming of the appliance network. He anticipates that in the following 5 years, more than 30% of the users will enjoy the benefits that PLC-BUS brings.
