coupler - definition of coupler in Encyclopedia (1142 words)
In 1893, satisfied that an automatic coupler could meet the demands of commercial railroad operations and, at the same time, be manipulated safely, the United States Congress passed the Safety Appliance Act.
In absolute numbers, coupler related accidents dropped from nearly 11,000 in 1892 to just over 2,000 in 1902, even though the number of railroad employees steadily increased during that decade.
A coupler is also a feature of organs, which will cause a key depressed on a keyboard to play another key on the same keyboard, play a key on a different keyboard, or sound a note in some division.

Modems generally remained at 300 and 1200 bps into the mid-1980s, although over this period the acoustic coupler disappeared seemingly overnight as Smartmodem-compatible modems flooded into the market.
