The Data Connect MIU9.6FPD Modem


To service the growing need for efficient, reliable data communication in harsh environments of utility substations and industrial facilities, has developed a 9600 Fast Poll Modem that can operate from various AC/DC power supplies and survive high surge levels and extreme heat and cold. All this without compromising the performance expected from state-of-the-art communication devices. With the rapid move toward “Intelligent” substations, where meters, relays, RTUs, SCADA systems, etc. are able to “talk” to a remote operator, communication devices such as modems are moving off the desktop and into the field, where the conveniences of 115VAC power outlets and climate control are usually hard to find. Data Connect Enterprise has addressed this problem by developing the 9.6FPD designed specifically for harsh environments. The 9.6FPD is a high sophisticated full duplex, V.29 data modem that is designed to interface with RS232, RS485 (external device), 5V logic (TTL) or simple send and receive signals. The 9.6FPD operates at full or half duplex 2-wire or 4-wire leased lines.
