your existing hardware and worry about upgrading later. For this reason, it’s the perfect transitional modem for multidrop automation applications in industrial settings. You can use the 9600 Modem, for instance, to communicate with Bell 202T remote modems that perform well enough now but will eventually be replaced with 1200/1800 models.
Typical applications are to use the 9600 FP Modem for system control and data acquisition (SCADA) or for
communicating with utility substations or industrial facilities. Because the modem requires no human intervention for it to operate, it’s particularly

modem; then choose the transmitter output level and receiver dynamic range.
Troubleshooting is also easy. An LED control display on the 9600 FP Modem gives you
