How many PCI-FBUS/2 cards can be used in a PC to connect to various Fielbus networks?

How many PCI-FBUS/2 cards can be used in a PC to connect to various Fielbus networks?

How many PCI-FBUS/2 cards can be used in a PC to connect to various Fielbus networks?  Are there limitations with the Communications Manager and Configurator?
 
I currently have 1 PC with a PCI-FBUS/2 card interfaced to 2 Fieldbusses. Can I place any PCI-FBUS/2 card into the PC and run 2 additional Fieldbusses?

Hi hhsatBeck,
 
The limitations of CM and Configurator is,
 
Configurator supports maximum 4 FF online segments, including H1 and HSE. For more than 4 segments, extra upgrade package should be purchased.
CM supports maximum 16 FF segments, including both online and offline.
 
So, you can use at most two PCI-FBUS/2 card (4 segments) on one PC.
