Fax machine

A fax machine is a device that is used to send documents electronically over a telephone network.

The transmissions it sends are called “faxes” and these can be between two fax machines, or between a fax machine and computer or online fax service that is equipped to send and receive faxes.


👩‍🏫 Welcome, Primary 1 students, to our Computer Studies ICT class! Today, we are going to learn about a common IT device called the fax machine. 📠

A fax machine is a device that allows us to send and receive documents electronically over a telephone network. It revolutionized the way we share physical documents over long distances. Let’s explore more about fax machines together:

📠 How Fax Machines Work:
1. Sending a Fax: To send a fax, we place the document we want to send into the fax machine’s document feeder or on the glass platen. We then enter the recipient’s fax number using the fax machine’s keypad. Once we press the “send” button, the fax machine scans the document and converts it into electronic signals. These signals are transmitted over the telephone network to the receiving fax machine.

2. Receiving a Fax: When a fax machine receives a fax, it answers the incoming call and listens for fax tones. If it detects these tones, it starts receiving the electronic signals and converts them back into a document. The received document is then printed out by the fax machine.

📠 Types of Fax Machines:
There are different types of fax machines, including:
– Standalone Fax Machines: These are dedicated machines solely for sending and receiving faxes. They usually have a keypad, display, and document feeder.
