The challenge -- how to reduce energy cost by centrally controlling peripheral electrical loads, without the high cost and long payback of hard wired systems. The solution -- A-10 powerline carrier (PLC) controls. A-10 PLC remains the most cost effective technology available for load control with an existing building management system or home automation computer.

Advanced Control Technologies' A-10 PLC uses existing wiring as its communication pathway. High frequency, digital signals travel the powerlines from transmitters connected to your main building controller to receivers that wire directly to the loads under control. The result is a reliable control network that saves as much as 75% in labor costs compared to conventional hard-wire systems.

A sampling of their product line is shown below. Please call TSS at (800) 955-3264 if you don't see the item you're looking for.
