How long can the cables be between MD485 and RS-485 devices?

RS-485 networks should follow a bus topology whenever possible (devices daisy-chained in a linear fashion). The total amount of cable used in a single network should not exceed 1,200 m. An RS-485 repeater or a data logger with multiple MD485 devices can be used to extend the length of a network or to create more complex network topologies.
