- stroke speed
- In facsimile systems, the number of times per minute that a fixed line perpendicular to the direction of scanning is crossed in one direction by a scanning or recording spot. In most conventional mechanical systems, this is equivalent to drum speed. In systems in which the picture signal is used while scanning in both directions, the stroke speed is twice the above figure.
