Data Connect IG202T-R38


The Data Connect IG202T-R38 is a Bell 202 modem for asynchronous and synchronous data transmission in 300-3400 Hz voice band.  The modem supports several international standards ITU V.21, V.23, R.35, R.37, R.38A, R.38B, V.29, Bell 103, Bell 202 and proprietary Cegelec 1200/600Bd and Indactic 33 communication standards.

IG202T-R38-DC-12 Standalone DC voltage (9-18 VDC)
IG202T-R38-DC-24 Standalone DC voltage (18-36 VDC)
IG202T-R38-DC-48 Standalone DC voltage (25-50 VDC)
IG202TRM-R38 Rackmount DC voltage (10-48VDC)

The modem can operate half or full-duplex, point-to-point or point-to-multipoint.  When using FSK modulation, recieve and transmit channels may be independently set. The modem employs advanced DSP technology, thus offering high service flexibility through programmable features.

Software configuration is performed via Hayes AT command set. AT commands can be initiated from any terminal application using an RS-232 communication interface.Additionally, for easy firmware upgrade a bootstrap loader is provided. The modem features programmable modem capability for SCADA or power utility communication networks.

The Data Connect IG202T-R38 can support a range of standards including ITU R.35, R.37, R.38A, R.38B, V.21, V.23, Bell 103, and Bell 202. The modem also features Specialized Line, Power Line Carrier, or radio communication. The IG202T-R38 is designed for use in SCADA systems mainly based upon power utility communication networks.

Depending on modulation standards it can communicate through specialized, private or leased lines, radio links and power lines (PLC) The IG202T-R38 is available as a desktop modem or in two different types of standard 19″ rack, including: 1U rack with 1, 2, or 3, modems per rack; 3U rack with 10, 23, or 14 modems per rack, with additional blank front plates covering unused slots. All connectors at the rear side are accessible at the back openings.
