Connect-IT 1040 Self-Powered, Universal Synchronous/Asynchronous, Short-Range Modem

You Can Use the Model 1040 in Just About Any RS-232 UTP or STP Application!

--Image: RACKABLE! Rack Mount Available --The Model 1040 self-powered miniature short range modem packs the features of Patton's Model 1080 into a package that requires no AC power. Operating asynchronously or synchronously, the Model 1040 supports data rates to 38.4 Kbps and distances to 12 miles (19.3 Km). The Model 1040 will operate over 2 or 4 wires, in point-to-point or multipoint environments. In synchronous mode, the Model 1040 supports Internal, External or Receive loopback clocking.

The Model 1040 incorporates two V.54 and two V.52 BER test modes, which can be activated via the RS-232 interface. Built-in LEDs let you monitor test mode operation. Additional peace of mind comes from knowing that the Model 1040 has both transformer isolation and surge protection to guard against data loss. The Model 1040 is designed to plug directly into the RS-232 interface. Twisted pair wire is connected using RJ-11, RJ-45 or terminal blocks.
