Coax Termination

Regardless of coax type, each end of the network must have a terminator. The terminator is used to keep a signal from bouncing around on a cable, giving duplicate commands.

One terminator should be attached to ground.

Attaching two ground cables can create a ground loop, which can bring a network down.

The terminator (resistor) must match the value of the coax cable.
