electric delay line
1. An instrument which postpones an electric signal's arrival time in a circuit by employing capacitive (a system that enables it to store an electric charge) and inductive properties (production of an electromotive forces).
2. A delay line that uses properties of lumped or distributed capacitive and inductive elements.

It can be used for signal storage by recirculating information-carrying wave patterns.

electric power line, power line, powerline network
A data network which uses a building's electrical system as the transmission system and regular wall outlets as connecting points.

Powerline networks do not interfere with the delivery of electricity in the same circuit because the data are transmitted at a much higher frequency than the 60Hz or 50Hz used for AC (alternating current) power.
