Definitions for "Characters per second"
Keywords:  cps, printer, bps, second, matrix
The number of bytes or characters sent over the phone lines in 1 second. [Abbreviated as CPS].
A measure of the rate at which data is transferred or printed by a printer.
A data transfer rate generally estimated from the bit rate and the character length. For example, at 2400 bps, 8-bit characters with start/stop bits (for a total of ten bits per character) will be transmitted at a rate of approximately 240 characters per second (CPS). Some protocols, such as error-control protocols, employ advanced techniques such as longer transmission frames and data compression to increase CPS.
