Operativity will be spoiled if the thick cable of an end effector is in the exterior of a manipulator. The less wiring device adapting Power Line Communication technology has been developed. Transmission of the information and transfer of power on an end effector are realizable with one pair of twisted pair wires. The technical details, peripheral technology, example of application and future subjects of this device which can be used, such as not only a robot but onboard equipment and plant apparatus, are reported.
