This is new to me, digital electricity. Read about it here VoltServer.com Now this company is behind the product and of course touts all the benefits. When we look at the applications for POE, and how popular it is, this product may work out.

I don't see anything about energy distribution. I see building management, IoT, Verizon 5G for the Superbowl. Don't know what they had to do with any of it.

VoltServer's patented Digital Electricity solutions safely deliver electricity where, when, and how it is needed. Digital Electricity can be delivered using off-the-shelf data cable, at significantly reduced cost, and with greater speed, power, distance, efficiency, intelligence, and flexibility, when compared to competing electrical installations.

As Tom pointed out in the OP, this is a PoE solution.

Yow !!!!

The physicist in me just winces at the Aldous Huxley-ian notion that Digital Electricity is MORE EQUAL than Analog Electricity. (Animal Farm.) The verbal flummery in that quote sets my teeth on edge.

Ummm, what do they do that anybody else isn't doing? If it was so revolutionary their website wouldn't be just a bunch of name-drops and an attempt to get your email so they can spam you.

Ahh, now I get it. Digital Electricity. On=1, off=0. So what does that do for you?

PWM as in pulse modulation? I did a lot of DC drives mainly in paper mills. These were PWM IGBT devices as opposed to the more conventional phase controlled drives. Not exactly new..............

Someone else decided to re-market an old technology and call it by a different name.
Dyson did it with their “digital motors”..

Think power factor correction devices for homes.
Same crap, different name, yet people get excited by it and BUY!!!

Yes, a company asked me to investigate that for a home installation device. Their choice. I did what they asked. And they paid me.

their logo on the website is a PWM waveform, so that's what I assume this is.
