The Zoom/MultiLine™ FaxModem

The Zoom/MultiLine FaxModem provides up to eight faxmodems in a compact desktop case that is easy to install anywhere. It sets new standards of port density, flexibility, and power efficiency.

Additional faxmodem modules can be added quickly and easily to the four-channel versions without shutting down other ports.

Each MultiLine module is a Rockwell-based serial V.34 28.8 Kbps faxmodem or V.32bis 14.4 Kbps voice/faxmodem.

The front panel features a reset button and 3 status lights for each channel. The single in-line switching power supply eliminates clutter and simplifies installation. When installed in a standard rack mount, two MultiLine units will fit side-by-side.
