V92HM4-RC Embedded Modem Module

Featured Product from Radicom Research, Inc.


SAN JOSE, Calif. - June 15, 2010 - 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 Embedded Modem Module designed for Home and Business Security Alarm Systems.

The self-contained dial-up modem module supports Ademco's DTMF and SIA's FSK alarm protocol. Utilizing standard DTMF tones, via proper AT Commands, an alarm system with HM4 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.

The Contact ID 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 small form factor module is built for reliability, simple implementation and ease of integration for designers of security data communications networks.

Measuring just 1.0" X 1.0" X 0.2", the modem has a built-in data pump, modem controller and on-board International DAA. The 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.

"The V92HM4-RC's small footprint and ease of use 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 Contact ID support 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."
