An Econet network is a line of cable and not a circuit. As such, it has two ends and each end must be fitted with a terminator. This is to prevent the reflection of data and clock signals back across the network once the end has been reached. Terminators provide the necessary circuitry to absorb these reflections to allow the Econet to function without disruption. Although very short networks of two or three stations may work without terminators, they are recommended for all Econets to guarantee reliability.
