This document is the preliminary specification for the CEBus Power Line (PL) Physical Layer and Media portion of the Physical Layer and Media specifications of EM-600. Its purpose is to present the information necessary for the development of a PL physical network and devices to communicate and share information over that network. This is one of a series of documents covering the various media that comprise the CEBus standard.
This document covers the complete physical layer (OS1 layer 1) including the interface to the Medium Access Control (MAC) Layer and the interface to the medium. The document also provides a set of guideline physical and electrical specifications for the power line medium environment as an aid in developing products for that environment.
