We order the HWIC-1DSU-T1= for Cisco 2900 series routers. I see that NIM-2MFT-T1/E1 works for voice and data on 4K routers. Which I think it is the replacement for VWIC3-2MFT-T1/E1 on 2900s, but I just cant find a replacement for the data only WIC or NIM (4K router). Thanks.
I am moving your post to the Network Architecture - Routing space for better visibility and access to feedback.
I hope this helps.

Hope you’re doing well.
Cisco 2900 series use EHWIC, whereas the 4000 routers use NIM.
In the following document you can find a list with the modules that can assist you to allow data only:
The PDI suggestions that can allow you to do what you’re looking for are located in the “Serial WAN interface” fragment of this document. Once you allocate the one right option, you can simply review its data sheet on the same page.
Hope this information is helpful!
Also, you can find further information or solve future queries in the https://supportforums.cisco.com/ as well.
Thanks for your response, but the link you sent me lists high speed serial ports. I am looking for RJ45 ports. I guess Cisco didn't make any data only NIM cards for 4000 routers...
I'm sure this has already been answered elsewhere, but I'm in the same boat and I believe the below link takes you to the answer.
The Cisco® Fourth-Generation 1-, 2-, 4-, and 8-Port T1/E1 Multiflex Trunk Voice and WAN Network Interface Modules (NIMs) support data and voice applications on the Cisco 4000 Integrated Services Routers (Figure 1). These cards combine WAN-interface-card (WIC), voice-interface-card (VIC), ISDN Primary Rate Interface (PRI), dial-access integration, and channelized-data (CE1T1) functions to provide superior flexibility, versatility, and investment protection through their many uses. Customers who choose to integrate data and voice in multiple steps preserve their investment in a T1/E1 WAN interface."
