What is a SymNet Ring, Address, Master and Slave?

A Ring is a group of hardware linked together via the SymLink bus.  A single Express unit is also a Ring within it’s self.

An Address is the unique identifier of a device in a SymLink Ring.

A Master is the Address 1 unit.  Express units are always Address 1 and are therefor a Ring Master as no other devices “slave” to an Express.

A Slave is a non-Master unit in a SymLink Ring.
