Polnet ACP 2.0
OutofBand Network Switch & Call Router

Introducing the PolNet © ACP 2.0

A dedicated phone line for each data peripheral used at a remote location costs your MIS network thousands of dollars a year in line charges.

Multiply that by the number of locations in your far flung enterprise and what have you got? An antiquated means of gathering remote-site data that saps the budget dollars right out of your MIS department.

The PolNet © ACP 2.0 Voice/Data Processors alleviate network dependency on dedicated lines by expanding any existing voice line to accommodate up to 4 extra devices. That's a total of five communications devices sharing one phone line - efficiently and effectively.

You are using multiple types of data equipment at multiple locations in your polling network and you're paying multiple phone line charges...until now.

Not Just Savings...Security.

The first thing you want in a voice/data processor is quick access to the right data equipment - every time. The last thing you want is anyone accessing your equipment - any time.

That's why our PolNet © ACP's 2.0 are engineered with programmable security access codes to each device port. Up to seven characters long, the security access codes keep unwanted callers from accessing proprietary equipment and information. And it's a sure bet you won't get "hacked" there are over 35 million combinations to chose from.

In addition to cost savings and precise routing, the ACP 2.0 is engineered to provide an additional layer of security to connected devices.

Reliable and Compatible.

We're sure you have heard that before. But we guarantee it. The PolNet © ACP-300, ACP-500 and ACP-900 are made to the strictest industry standards. We guarantee they work on any type of phone line line or phone system - anywhere.

We also guarantee our ACP's will process calls to any type of data equipment that requires a phone line to function. Any type of modem - regardless of speed, throughput or standard, and type of data terminal - credit card authorization machines, money order terminals, Underground Storage Tank monitoring systems and even alarm/energy control systems.

How does the ACP Series 2.0 work?

The ACP installs on an analog phone line and answers inbound calls at the first sign of ring voltage. After the ACP goes off‐hook, it immediately screens for fax and security access codes (SAC). During this processing period, a Bell spec “ring‐back” tone is issued to the calling party.

Once a SAC command is received, the call is routed to the corresponding port. In the absence of fax/access codes, the call is defaulted to device port #1. Outbound calls are processed in the normal fashion with barge‐in protection.

The emergency barge‐in (EBI) feature allows up to four user designated device ports to seize the phone line for critical outbound calls.

Phone Line Isolation/Barge-In. This feature gives you the option of being able to prioritize access to the phone line during an outgoing phone call.

Calls can be interrupted by either dialing a programmed number of digits or programming the amount of time a receiver has to be off-hook.

Up to four device ports can now be designated for emergency line seizure for critical applications.

Dual Surge Line Protection. Protects your valuable data and telephone equipment from harmful transient voltage coming through the phone line and ACP 100 to 120V (or 220 - 240V for Europe) power cord.
Simplified Installation. All line‐in and device jacks are RJ11. No additional connectors are required
Manual Transfer Capability. A call can be transferred between data/voice equipment at any time during a call by entering the proper security access code.
Night Watch Mode. A programmable feature that routes unanswered after-hours calls to a predetermined device automatically. Useful for routing manual fax transmissions to fax machines or routing data calls to data equipment without the need for security access codes. Routing is optional to two different ports.
Fax Tone Detect is a feature that enables the ACP to detect CNG (CalliNG) tones from incoming auto-fax call and route it to a predetermined device port.
Additional Detect Time. Normally, after an ACP "answers" the line, it monitors the call for six seconds to detect tones and security access codes. The Additional Detect Time feature, when enabled adds six more seconds to the monitoring period.
Protected Hook Flash is a feature that lets the ACP be utilized with multi-line Key systems that do not generate DTMF tones on an inbound call. With Protected Hook Flash "on". manual transfers can be accomplished.
Multi-Port Polling Function. The ACP can be programmed to seize the phone line after a data transmission has finished through one port and monitor the call for additional security access codes, which route the call to the next port.
LED Status Display. Seven segment display shows port in use & programming value read‐back. Audible read‐back tones are also provided for remote programming.

Hopefully we have enlightened you, but numbers don't lie. Communicating, either with a phone or a modem-driven device is expensive (and we didn't even include the cost of having the lines installed by the phone company).

With Pol-net, you can reduce fixed costs by these amounts thus put this amount toward your bottom line. It makes sense to use Polnet. Order online today or email info@faxswitch.com with you questions. We look forward to serving you.
