Title: Power line communication system and method of auto-commissioning system nodes

Abstract

A power line communication system and method permit auto-commissioning of multiple device control modules on a DC power line during the power up of the system. Device control modules associated with the peripheral devices are powered up sequentially and a unique address is assigned to each device controller when it is powered up. The device control modules have a unique circuit configuration that allows the use of inexpensive and mostly passive components. The cost effectiveness of the device controller design becomes particularly significant in applications, such as multi-panel OLED lighting fixtures, with high node counts.
