Although simple low end digital command stations that only provide for control of a limited number of engines simply cycle through all the addresses in use repeatedly, higher end systems may use a priority-based scheme so that packets that contain values that have changed are sent before packets that are repeats. Thus, repeating packets does not necessarily impact the effective bandwidth of the system.
