Product Overview

The Kantronics 9612XE is a versatile dual-port, multi-speed radio modem/TNC/data controller designed to fill many different roles, now and in the future. Directly replacing the KPC-9612+ and capable of speeds up to 38.4 kbps, the 9612XE opens a new era in user flexibility and customization.

The 9612XE now includes the wireless modem modes engineered for dependable and versatile digital communications in the commercial operating environment.  Able to communicate in a variety of formats, including TCP/IP, LSUB and TUP, 9612XE units are seamless and transparent radio link substitutes and can also operate as a data-operated switch (DOX).

The 9612XE can be used in the field with a radio to form a mobile data terminal, or (with the addition of an external GPS receiver) a GPS mobile "tracker". Its broad supply voltage range (DC 5.5 V to 25 V) allows for maximum flexibility.
