Cambridge Ring repeater
Class: network
Machine: Ring
This is one component of the Cambridge Ring, a repeater. The Cambridge ring consisted of a pair of twisted wires which were taken round the Lab and they plugged into one of these devices - this allowed some device which accepted or gave information to be attached to the Ring. This device would regenerate the pulses. A particular Ring would have up to 256 such repeater elements. These were designed in the Lab but they were wire-wrapped by an outside firm. The Cambridge Ring was supplied to many universities throughout the UK - the last one to be used was at the University of Hertfordshire, disconnected only 2 or 3 years ago. The project started in 1974.
