Adaptive Networks Overview
Established in 1983 in Boston, Massachusetts, Adaptive has been providing reliable powerline communications for demanding industrial applications for 25 years. Now in the fourth generation, our products uniquely provide solutions for reliable network communications for control and monitoring in harsh industrial and commercial powerline environments. Our IC and DSP-based solutions bring these benefits to high-volume applications. Our MV product line extends these benefits to medium voltage applications, including utilities, mines, and oil and gas.
Powerline Communications Solutions by Adaptive Networks
Proven, robust solutions delivering reliable powerline communications for control and monitoring over the harshest powerline environments.

When the network is the powerline, Adaptive provides solutions that communicate without compromise. Adaptive’s field-proven powerline products ensure successful deployment to solve your communications needs in the harsh powerline environment.
Developed to work in the most demanding industrial environments, our products have been designed to adapt to the ever-changing harsh conditions presented by the industrial powerline environment – frequency-dependent attenuation and impulsive noise. With over 20 years of field-proven operation, our products are used for control and monitoring in utilities, factories, ships, mines, and subsea oil and gas where failure is not an option.
Ease of Use
Adaptive’s products are designed for easy integration into your equipment. We offer solutions including modules and fully-assembled end products in weatherproof enclosures. Both inductive and capacitive couplers can be used to reliably couple to the powerlines, providing the flexibility to choose the best method for your application. External interfaces include both Ethernet and serial (RS-232, -422, and -485) standards.
Wide Area Control and Monitoring
Adaptive’s unique approach delivers control and monitoring over a wide area in the powerline environment. Network throughput over long distances is achieved by our powerline-optimized network modem technology combined with reliable powerline coupling technology. The foundation of our modem technology is adaptive equalization, permitting dynamic adaptation to the inherent inconsistencies of the powerline.
"As a distributor providing specialist support for sub systems and components utilised in harsh environments, Astute is an ideal partner to further Adaptive Networks product deployment within the Oil & Gas, Subsea, Reefer and Electric Utility industries. By enabling reliable communication across powerlines, Adaptive Networks solutions are providing new opportunities for communication over existing infrastructure, as well as reducing reliance on expensive communication media, bundling the communication capabilities within the powerlines required for the application."
