Bus Devices differ from “Devices” in their architecture. Multiple Devices are attached to a single Bus Controller via nodes. The bus controller does not take in any direct user interaction. Instead, a bus has a series of nodes, which support a series of locks. The db Bus Controller also supports Enline units, used for end-of-row authentication. One Bus can support up to thirty two nodes, and each node currently supports connecting up to two locks (devices).
