Abstract

In a ring communication system, distribution panels are provided for attaching stations to the ring. In this article, a specific synchronizing arrangement is suggested which minimizes jitter accumulation on the ring even if numerous stations are attached to the ring by long extension lines. The suggested solution is relatively inexpensive.
