Multiple PAC Controller to a single PC via Pac Control/PAC Display ???

I have a possible application the will have several PAC Controllers each with up to 24 I/O points, doing simple control and slow data logging (every 5-10 minutes) and some alarming.
How many “boxes” can you connect to a single PC doing something like this?

Since Pac Display is multi-threaded, the answer is ‘many’ controllers can be connected to the PC.
By the brief description you have provided, I don’t think that 20-30 controllers would be out of the question.
