Why Buy the IG-202T Modem


The Product

The Data Connect IG-202T modem was designed to be compatible with the Bell 202T standards which was established in the 1970s by the Bell Laboratory. The modem standards has been adapted by many modem manufacturers and has not been changed in the last 30 years. The Data Connect IG-202T was designed to meet the highly dependable and reliability demand by the utility and industrial applications.

The  modem is 100% compatible with the Bell 202T standard modems.

The unit is implemented with the latest VLSI technology to replace the old designs that were 20 years or older. By using VLSI, component count of the Data Connect IG-202T is much lower, which lowers the failure rate and increase the modem’s mean time between failure (MTBF)

The Data Connect IG-202T modems are built with industrial grade components and will operate over the temperature range of -40 to +85 degree C. The MOT202T were built with general commercial grade components and is guarantee to operate from 0 to +50 C only.

The IG-202T has additional features (i.e. auto RTS) to support SCADA equipment that does not provide the full RS-232 or RS-485 control signals.

The modem equipped with 3 different types of surge protection devices to guard against its power supply input and leased line interface.  The surge protection for the MOT202T has been minimum to non-existent.

The new modem has a much smaller foot-print than the MOT202T modems.  The Data Connect IG-202T is about 30% the size of the MOT202T, and consumes less power. Because of its low power consumption, it is now possible to operate the modem in battery or solar powered environment

The new modem will support 10 to 60 volts DC power supply, or can be powered by a factory provided AC to DC converter from 100 to 240 VAC or 100-400VDC.  This will reduce customers inventory of modems and saving cost by stocking only one model instead of two models.

The units support both RS-232 and RS-485 interface.

The IG-202T is designed with a microprocessor controller on-board, it minimized the use of DIP switch or jumpers settings, which simplify installation and cut down potential errors.

The Data Connect upgraded solution can be rack-mount (Data Connect IG-202T-RM), panel or wall-mounted, or DIN rail mounting with the optional DIN rail mounting kit.

The rackmount version will fit into the original Motorola RM16 chassis or the new RM16 chassis.

The Support

The engineers who designed the original MOT202T modem no longer support or enhance the modem.  They have changed companies and have designed the Data Connect IG-202T modems.  The engineers who designed the Data Connect IG-202T modem are available to support applications and technical issues only for the Data Connect IG-202T modems.  They will stand behind the product and support of the Data Connect IG-202T modems for any future applications, update and enhancement.  Problem solving and the ability to support new applications will be found only in the new Data Connect IG-202T products.
