Provides An Across the Board Compatibility of Data Communications Into Security Networks

Ademco Contact-ID Support Serial TTL Interface Dial-Up Modem Module

“The small footprint and ease of use of this Contact-ID support 56Kbps modem enables designers to provide connectivity to their applications in a very small space, adding value to products with its advanced communication features,” said Alex Tsau, Vice Pr

Radicom Research, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of dial-up and wireless RF modems for Embedded Applications, announces immediate availability of its V92HM4-RC, a Contact-ID support Embedded Modem Module designed for Home and Business Security Alarm Systems.

The self-contained dial-up modem module supports Ademco’s DTMF Contact ID protocol published by SIA (Security Industry Association). Utilizing standard DTMF tones, via proper AT Commands, an alarm system with V92HM4-RC modem inside can transmit an emergency signal to a monitoring station, the station generates a Kiss-off tone telling the communicator the tone has been received. After the Kiss-off, the modem then restores the telephone line for standard voice communications.

The V92HM4-RC provides an across the board compatibility of data communications between equipment designed to meet the “Contact ID” protocol regardless of manufacturers.

Measuring just 1.0” X 1.0” X 0.25”, the modem has a built-in data pump, modem controller and on-board International DAA. The Serial TTL interface modem features –40oC to +85oC operating temperature. Its cost-saving line-in-use feature eliminates the need for maintaining a dedicated phone line in many applications. Other features include 3KV high voltage isolation (on selectable models), Caller ID type I and II, V.17, V.29 Fax Class 1 and Class 2, Telephone and TAM support.

“The small footprint and ease of use of this Contact-ID support 56Kbps modem enables designers to provide connectivity to their applications in a very small space, adding value to products with its advanced communication features,” said Alex Tsau, Vice President of Operations for Radicom Research. “Our V92HM4-RC modem drastically simplifies the design process for data communications functionality, allowing manufacturers, designers and integrators to move products off the drawing board and into production more quickly.”

The V92HM4-RC is ideal for use in the home and business security devices that are required to report emergency and routine coded signals to a central location. This 56K modem module is built for reliability, simple implementation and ease of integration for designers of security data communications networks.

Other Applications

The V92HM4-RC is IEC60601-1 (Medical Electronics) certified. It is also ideal for use in medical devices that require dial-up connection. The modem can also be used for Industrial monitoring systems, POS terminals, gaming devices, vending machines, remote monitoring and data collection systems, back-up communication systems or any small footprint device that needs to communicate data reliably with low power consumption.

Pricing and Availability

The V92HM4-RC is available now.
Prices begin at US$39.00 each for quantity of 100 pcs, higher OEM volume discounts are available.
