Recovery time

A conduit's recovery time is the number of ticks that must elapse after a signal is sent through the conduit, before another signal can be safely sent on the same path. In general, a lower recovery time means a more useful conduit. For example, the Snark's very low recovery time allowed for the creation of oscillators with previously unknown periods, 43 and 53.

For the most part this is a synonym for repeat time. However, overclocking a complex circuit can often allow it to be used at a repeat time much lower than its safe recovery time.
