Half Duplex(redirected from Half Duplexes)
Also found in: Dictionary.
In telecommunications, a system that allows transmission between two endpoints, but not simultaneously. For example, if two people have walkie talkies, each may speak to the other, but the signal will not transmit if both try to speak at the same time. This contrasts with a full duplex, in which information may be transmitted both ways at the same time.
