In this study, a new communication protocol, which addresses the rotary table, has been designed. Developed system works over a single line and is using slip rings. The designed communication protocol ensures the half duplex communication for multiple stations over a single cable. During the protocol design, media access methods, coding techniques and multi-node synchronization techniques were examined. These techniques have been adapted, updated and combined for the study, during the formation of the communication protocol. The designed protocol was tested and verified in the simulation environment with original software, on the microcontrollers. The protocol is aimed to be open source, flexible, easily applicable and a new solution for the distributed control problems in the field of automation and for the rotary table systems in particular.
