Contrary to the extensive definition used by Chappe, argued that the term telegraph can strictly be applied only to systems that transmit and record messages at a distance. The transmission speed is controlled by an actuator, and the method of transmission—start-stop or synchronous—is determined by the operational mode of a control device.
