“TNET”, which stands for TransTerm NETwork, is the equipment (hardware) and interconnecting cable which together form an interactive data collection system. Software is available to integrate TNET into a variety of applications. TNET supports any of our TransTerm terminals and is controlled by the TIM1B network controller which connects to your host computer system via an RS-232 serial communications port.

Beyond the TIM1B (RS-422 communications), the network consists of TLD2 hubs and Data entry Terminals. Up to four terminals or TLD2s can be connected directly to a TIM1B. The TLD2s (Hubs) can be interspersed up to 2000 feet apart with one to six terminals connected to each TLD2. The network is interconnected with eight-conductor modular telephone cable which installs quickly and easily.
