Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 January 1974
Status: active
Page Count: 28
ICS Code (Power transmission and distribution lines): 29.240.20
scope:

This recommendation applies to coupling devices for power line carrier (PLC) systems which are connected between the coupling capacitor(s) and the carrier-frequency connection to the PLC terminal (or to a similar coupling device, directly or via additional equipment, in the case of retransmission).

The coupling device, in conjunction with the coupling capacitor(s) ensures:

a) the efficient transmission of carrier-frequency signals between the carrier-frequency connection and the power line;

b) the safety of personnel and the protection of the low-voltage parts of the installation against the effects of the power-frequency voltage and transient overvoltages,

This recommendation also applies to coupling devices used in conjunction with PLC systems which are required to operate over power cables.
