Power distribution today is almost entirely a native analog system, managed with analog mechanisms such as voltages, limited digital communication layered on top, or not managed at all. Exceptions include USB and Ethernet, though these are data-centric. This presentation will describe a proposed standard for a digitally-native 48V DC distribution standard for ordinary building loads, intended to have low cost and high energy efficiency without sacrificing power distribution functionality. It includes high and low current wiring, is flexible on the wire gauge used, and includes Internet Protocol communication. High functionality is key for market success.
