Card™ 56K FaxModem
About the Dualmode Zoom/PC Card
Dualmode Zoom/PC Card 56K Model 2975 for PC and 56K Model 2876
for Macintosh® can download data from compatible sites
at up to 56,000 bps for fast internet and LAN access and provides
up to 33,600 bps uncompressed data transmission over conventional
phone lines, using the V.34 protocol.
The Zoom/PC Card 56K FaxModem also provides
14,000 bps send/receive fax.
Both models of the Zoom/PC Card 56K FaxModem come bundled
with fax and data software and the PC version is also bundled
a memory saving enabler.
The Dualmode Zoom/PC Card 56K FaxModem is a state-of-the-art
high-speed V.90 data/fax modem that can be used with a notebook,
palmtop, PDA, or any computer with a compatible PCMCIA slot.
It's at home in the office and on the road. Its small size,
slim cord, rugged connector design, built-in DAA, and battery-conserving
circuitry make the PC Card 56K the perfect traveling companion.
The Dualmode PC Card 56K can receive data from compatible
sites at speeds up to 56,000 bps, and at higher speeds with
compression.1 It incorporates both the V.90
ITU 56K Standard and K56flex™, the most widely supported
non-ITU 56K technology, to achieve download speeds nearly twice
as fast as any conventional analog modem. That means fast access
to the Internet, World Wide Web, and local area networks (LANs)
over standard phone lines. The Dualmode PC Card 56K automatically
connects in ITU V.90 mode, K56flex mode, 33.6 Kbps, or any
other ITU International or Bell standard speed to achieve the
fastest, most reliable connection possible.
The Dualmode PC Card 56K has Class 1 14.4 Kbps send/receive
fax capabilities for convenient printer-quality faxing to any
faxmodem or fax machine. You can even "broadcast" your faxes
to multiple recipients, schedule fax transmission, or forward
them to another number.
It also includes V.80 capability for compatibility with H.324
Standard point-to-point videotelephony over regular phone lines
and also supports H.323 Internet applications including video
The Dualmode Zoom/PC Card 56K FaxModem permits software downloads
to flash memory for all modem code, even DSP code. This protects
your investment and permits fast, easy upgrades.
Bundled software for DOS, and Windows® includes
fax and data software plus a memory-saving enabler.
Installing the Dualmode Zoom/PC Card 56K is fast and easy.2 Just
plug it into a standard PCMCIA Type II, III, or Toshiba 16mm
slot, and then attach to a telephone jack by means of the slim
cord. A reprogrammable Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and flash
memory make downloading updates for all modem code, including
DSP and Controller code fast and easy.
The Dualmode Zoom/PC Card 56K features ZoomGuard™ lightning
and surge protection, which provides much better protection
than provided by ordinary metal oxide varistors (MOVs).
Sleep mode capability conserves power when the Dualmode Zoom/PC
Card 56K is running on a computer's battery. When the faxmodem
is in sleep mode, it "wakes up" when it senses activity, such
as a modem command or an incoming call.
The Dualmode Zoom/PC Card 56K FaxModem is made in the USA
by Zoom Telephonics, Inc., an industry leader in telecommunications
