What is the maximum operating length for SmartWire-DT network and how many nodes can it support?

The SmartWire-DT network can be 2,000 feet or 600 meters
long and each gateway can have up to 99 devices connected to
it. The actual number of devices that can be connected depends
on the type of fieldbus that is being used. On PROFIBUS-DP
networks, the SmartWire-DT gateways support 58 nodes but on
a CANopen network, the SmartWire-DT gateway supports 99
nodes. If additional nodes are required, then additional gateways
can be used.
