Summary



Network relay.png

The network relay is a device used to separate a network within a ship or station into multiple partially separate sub-networks.
Separate sub-networks allow one-way broadcasting of variable changes between them, and enable the creation of modular YOLOL systems.

Basic information

  • Network Relays are connected to two separate data networks via cable sockets at both ends of the device
    • One end of the relay acts as the "input" connection
    • The other end acts as the "output" connection
  • When the relay is powered, changes made to device fields connected to the input propagate will apply to all similarly named device fields that are connected to relay output
    • Values between networks are not automatically synchronized
      • This means that connected networks may contain different values for similarly named device fields
