As part of CNS’s Lon Network Infrastructure Product Family (LNIPs) this product compliments our Compact LonRouter, LonRepeater family as well as our eNode™IV Lon/IP852 Routing products and LonFibre products. Termination is required on all cable networks in order to cancel out ghosts and reflections, which occur when signals are transmitted onto the cable. Without termination, the signal can be degraded beyond the ability of receivers to pick up and decode the signal. The degradation of signals is affected by the topology of the cable system i.e. how it is wired together.
