Abstract

A technique is described whereby power switching circuits of ancillary devices, as when coupled to computers, can be controlled from a single source. The concept is unique in that there is no series device between the power source and the load of the ancillary device. The concept enables time signals to be superimposed on the power lines to control various ancillary devices.
