Power Line Antenna


Scan and display all three states of power

Power Line Antenna hardware

The Power Line Antenna (PLA) covers the frequency range of 1 kHz to 50 MHz. When connected to a system containing a CTL|SystemWare Baseband Receiver, the combination provides the capability to scan and display phase, neutral and ground states of power from 1 kHz to 50 MHz in approximately one second.

Example Uses:

  • Scan three states of power
Three Phases of Power as output from PLA
  • Identify signals for analysis
