Molex's TelEnable™ FDC Interconnect System Allows for Interoperability Between Devices
LISLE, Ill. – October 12, 2004 – The new TelEnable™ Fax/Data Card (FDC) interconnect system from Molex® Incorporated (NASDAQ: MOLX and MOLXA) provides communications interoperability between legacy, current and future technologies for a variety of applications. These include wireless communication, transportation, emergency medical system and remote monitoring applications. The TelEnable FDC transmits serial data or a digital fax from an analog device via a wireless network, thereby eliminating the extra steps and technology normally needed to make these devices "talk to" to each other.
By sending information directly to a device, the TelEnable FDC simplifies design issues by providing an interface for new protocols and enabling compatibility between existing technologies. It eliminates protocol development trials to focus the device design on the core product and simplifies interconnections to reduce costs and CPU overhead. The TelEnable FDC uses a touchtone phone and serial interface for easy field configuration and works with any circuit data enabled wireless phone, including CDMA, PCS, TDMA, GSM/GPRS and IDEN.
"Molex saw an industry need for an interconnect system that would provide our customers with device interoperability capabilities," said Randy Jones, strategic product manager, Molex Incorporated. "After of seven years of research and development, the TelEnable FDC reinforces Molex's role as a leading interconnect solutions provider by offering interoperability capabilities, as well as delivering cost reductions and decreased CPU overhead."
The TelEnable FDC reduces validation and testing risks to minimize training. It can be embedded into a customer system by using a standard harness that is also available as an external accessory. Additionally, custom packaging options are available.
"Our customers have embraced the TelEnable technology. Currently, it is being used in a variety of applications such as secure remote communications and document exchange, with other potential implementations to come," said Tim Tsouchlos, director of business development, Integrated Products Division, Molex Incorporated.
The Molex TelEnable FDC offers flexibility and an affordable cost. Lead-time is six weeks for production quantities and two weeks for evaluation units.
