You need a serial data link to run identical light shows on two or more
Mania SCX500s (master/slave operation) or run light shows using a DMX
controller.
Fixtures on a serial data link must be daisy-chained in one single line,
max. 500 meters (1640 ft.) long, with max. 32 fixtures. If you wish to
exceed 32 fixtures or 500 meters, or to add branches, use an optically
isolated amplifier-splitter such as the Martin RS-485 Opto-Splitter (P/N
90758060).
Reliable data connection requires suitable cable. Standard microphone
cable cannot transmit DMX data reliably over long runs. For best results,
use cable with at least one twisted pair specifically designed for RS-485
