11) HOW MANY SERIAL DEVICES CAN I CONNECT WITH THE PORT-POWERED CONVERTERS?
Answer: Standard RS422/RS485 converters used in a master/slave configuration will support connection of up to 32 devices. For some industrial grade converters, a maximum of 128 RS422/RS485 devices may be connected. In practice, the number of devices that may be reliably connected may be limited by cable length, data rate, electrical noise, and other factors. Please refer to the data sheets for specific converters for more information.
