The Master-Slave dynamic means the network can diagnose potential issues, including:

  • Duplicate Addresses
    Slave devices can detect when other devices have the same MacID and will shut down appropriately.
  • Lack of Communication
    When a slave device does not receive an expected message in a timely manner, it displays a “Time Out” error.
  • Etc…
    You will discover other issues in later courses and research.
