The attached document provides guidelines for the different wire types, and their equivalents, that ETC recommends for low voltage data transmission in permanently installed lighting systems.
When equipment goes bad out in the field, it's often extremely helpful if the owner/end user can keep track of the circumstances of the failure. This is especially true when the problem is intermittent and might not occur when the technician is present. Service Technicians are exceptionally skillful...

The maximum number of RDM enabled opto-splitters that may be daisy chained together is 4. Since RDM splitters have to shorten the time between some of the packets, chaining more opto-splitters will result in unsatisfactory performance. It's also important to remember that legacy DMX opto-isolators...
The maximum number of RDM devices that can be attached to a single RDM enabled port on a Net3 Gateway is 32. This matches the DMX standard for the maximum number of devices on a DMX line. However, adding an RDM opto-isolator does not increase this number.
The ‘RDM Discovery Interval’ property of a Net3 Gateway defaults, in the first RDM version (v2.0.0) of the Net3 Two and Four Port Gateways, to 1000ms. Previous gateway software defaulted this property to 100ms. New gateways will be manufactured with a default of 1000ms. Existing gateways...
Remote Device Management (RDM) allows enabled devices on a DMX chain to communicate information back to the controller (typically a lighting console or network DMX distribution device) at the start of the chain. A more technical explanation of RDM can be found in the relevant Wikipedia entry. Knowledge...
