The THVD8000 RS-485 transceiver with OOK modulation for power line communication modulates data onto existing power lines. I have EVM board with me to test its functionality with my application.My question are as below :
1. What is the maximum input we can give to the DC bus.
2.We can connect 250 nodes with this daisy chain connection but what would be the length of the Dc bus should be there for this number nodes. Because as the distance increase the voltage drop happen in DC Bus.What distance this has been tested.
3. THVD 8000 can only be used in node side of the Board. like SN65hvd IC and will work as per OOK modulation. So do we need an external master kind of board which will derive the THVD8000 (as node) further.
Means Master THVD8000 will get data from master and then slave thvd8000 will work as per the data received by master.
