Although simple low end DCC command stations may provide for control of a limited number of engines and repeatedly cycle through all the addresses in use, higher end systems may use a priority-based scheme, where packets containing values which have changed are prioritised over those that have no changes. Thus, repeating packets does not necessarily impact the effective bandwidth of the system.
