FP Modem-56k Unit

  • FP Modem-56k Unit

Safe, easy and cost-effective M2M communication

The FP Modem-56k unit expands the number of communication alternatives available to FP series PLCs, e.g. dial-up, dedicated/leased line and multidrop network communication. If the PSTN supports text message service, the PLC can even send and receive short text messages.
A Windows driver allows the FP Modem-56k to be used together with various Windows software, such as OPC, SCADA, etc.

Enjoy the plug & play convenience of FP Modem-56k to facilitate modem communication between PLCs or between your PLC and PC.
