Product Features

  • Emulates dialup or leased-line modem service.
  • Installs inline with RS-232 cable.
  • Supports data rates from 7 to 224 kbps, including 56 kbps.
  • Distances supported up to 75 feet (22.8 m) on either side of the connector.
  • Indicator LEDs display TX, RX, and CD.
  • Internal or external clocking. 


  • Runs at 38.4 kbps.
  • Operates full- or half-duplex.
  • Has two DB25 connectors and six LEDs (TX, CTS, and DSR for each of the two ports).

  • We've tailored our SME-4M for your IBM equipment. Use it to regenerate the RS-232 signals, so you can send data up to 100 feet (30.4 m). Then you can put your sync (or async) devices where you want them.

    Use the SME-4M to provide clocking to your system, instead of a pair of modems or line drivers to connect controllers or other systems to your front-end processor. You can monitor the operating status easily with a glance at the front-panel LEDs.

    Because the SME-4M is so small and lightweight, it minimizes logistics problems and simplifies installation and replacement in the field. No special tools are required either. It's definitely designed for do-it-yourself installation.
