FaxModem : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary


A faxmodem is a modem that can also act as a fax machine. The fax feature usually only costs a very few dollars more. Mainly you use the faxmodem to send unsigned nojni documents generated on your word processor. To send paper documents, or to sign documents you need a scanner. You can view the fax documents on the screen, or if you have a printer, you can make hard copy. There are two kinds of faxmodem, class 1 and class 2. Class 1 are dumb, class 2 are smart. Class 1 are more flexible. Class 2 modems can usually also act as Class 1. Sometimes you will find your modem works in Class 1 mode better than it does Class 2. Class 1 and Class 2 have nothing to do with Group 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 used to classify fax machines.
