Acorn Econet Bridge

An Acorn Econet Bridge is used to connect two full Econet networks together allowing them to communicate and share resources. A total of 127 Econet bridges can be used in a network to create one large Acorn Econet comprising a maximum of 32,258 Acorn computers.

The Acorn Econet Bridge was the only Acorn product that shipped in the "cheese wedge" form which did not connect directly to a BBC Micro via either the Acorn Tube or 1MHz bus.
