As my rack is nearly full, and was thinking about adding new modules, i asked myself few questions. At first the option to get a new rack with the RACKLINK modul was the most obvious choice but, life's taugh right now so I was thinking about building a case myself to make it bigger for the futur modules.
With that in mid, I need to know how many modules can be powered by a single MASTER module. And is it possible to "extend" the bus cable behind the modules to make it longer and connect more modules?

The power consumption of the standard modules is below 10 milliamperes, so one MASTER can power up to 40, 50 modules. Extension of the bus cable is possible, if it helps I made a simple PCB with 2 pin headers for this purpose. I will publish the list with power consumption of the modules soon, this might help many because AE systems are growing now all around ;-)
