DataComm's DeskTop 202 combines the functionality of Bell
compatible, 1800 bps private line communications with an
attractive, low profile design for today's modern offices.
Using state-of-the-art technology, we can now bring you a
compact, efficient modem that is both economical to own and
simple to operate.
The DeskTop 202 is the perfect choice for asynchronous
transmission in point-to-point and multipoint applications.
Custom Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) provides the modem
with advanced features while maintaining the best price
Optimum data throughput is ensured by a
sophisticated compromise equalizer, for immunity to
impairments normally encountered with unconditioned voice
grade facilities. A soft transmit carrier turnoff virtually
eliminates the problem of erroneous data bits that can affect
polled applications. And the anti-streaming timer protects
against the potential disruption caused by faulty,
In short, you just can't get more accurate
transmission than with the DeskTop 202.
Besides also making the DeskTop 202 compact, our VLSI
technology means extremely high reliability. For example, the
modem draws a maximum of only 6 watts power, resulting in
lower heat dissipation and longer component life.
As the most power efficient modem in its
class, the DeskTop 202 can therefore save you even more in
operating expenses. Plus, there's even an on/off switch for
when the modem is not in use.
Easy to Use
Simple installation, setup and use were primary considerations
behind the design of the DeskTop 202. So installation is fast
and uncomplicated — no tools are needed! In addition, we've
used our experience to make sure that the modem will meet
operating requirements for the widest range of applications
without difficult programming procedures.
The DeskTop 202 options are set using a
switch bank accessible from the outside of the enclosure.
While the switches determine things like RTS/CTS delays and
constant or controlled carrier selections, other parameters
have built-in default values to satisfy most user needs. We
know that bringing up a network can be difficult, so we've
made it simpler for you.
A comprehensive array of diagnostic tests provides accurate
detection of system faults and helps you to quickly restore
service. Included are Analog Loopback (ANALOOP®),
Digital Loopback, Remote Digital Loopback (RDL), and
All tests may be initiated by front panel
switches and monitored through easy-to-read LED displays.
ANALOOP and RDL can also be controlled from the terminal
equipment (DTE) interface. Finally, the DeskTop 202 has a
selectable 10-minute abort timer to prevent inadvertently
locking the modem in test mode for extended periods of time.
The Uncluttered Desk Perhaps
the biggest advantage of the sleek DeskTop look is how easily
it fits into any office environment. A standalone unit, the
DeskTop 202 is also compatible with our DataComm 202T modems,
which means you can have the convenience of a high density
package at the central site, while the workstation at your
remotes stay clear and uncluttered.
