Even the poor devil who had waved the single despairing signal of distress had lapsed into unconsciousness before he had learned whether it had availed or not.
When those who could had recovered, the entire story had been told to the French commander; but the men were too ignorant to be able to tell him at just what point on the coast the professor and his party had been marooned, so the cruiser had steamed slowly along within sight of land, firing occasional signal guns and scanning every inch of the beach with glasses.

It is Banedanmark's expectation that the number of signal
errors and consequent delays can be reduced by 50 percent with the new signals

HARTING has announced it has developed a protective circuit housed within a modular connector in order to protect common signals
in the nstrumentation and control (I&C) area and this means that both digital and analogue circuits are securely protected.
