What is the maximum number of DMX devices across XLR cable length can a 36M or 72M support?

The 36M/72M is load tested and can support up to eight DMX devices across up to 500m of XLR cable. Please note that the general DMX specification states the maximum length is 1,000m (3,281'). A good working practice is to limit your cable run to less than 500m and to test with all DMX equipment. Also, make sure to use the DMX terminator (included with the DMX Upgrade Kit) on the output of your last DMX device.
