  • Passes Two Sets of Handshaking Signals: “Session Control” (DTR/DCD) and “Flow Control” (RTS/CTS)
  • V.54 Loopback Tests and V.52 BERT Pattern Generator/Detector
  • Easy-to-Read LED Status Indicators
  • Plugs Directly into an RS-232 Port
  • External AC Power Supply
  • Transformer Isolated and Surge Protected
  • Available in Rack Card Version

The Model 1018 async short range modem is able to pass two discrete sets of handshaking signals: DTR & DCD are used to control the point-to-point session, while RTS & CTS are used for flow control. This capability–combined with the Model 1018’s ability to support RS-232 data rates up to 57.6 kbps over two twisted pair–makes the Model 1018 perfect for inexpensive campus Internet links. Just use a plug-in Model 1018 at each remote computer, a rack of Model 1018RC cards at the central site, and connect them with 2-pair copper wire at up to 2.4 miles (3.9km)!
