MultiConsole System Counts When Using Element and Element 2

Question

If I use an Element as Primary or Backup with an Element 2 or ETCnomad in Element 2 mode, what will my system count be?

Answer

All combinations of Element as Primary or Backup with an Element 2 or ETCnomad in Element 2 mode will result in a system count of 1024 addresses. It does not matter if you're using a 6k Element 2.

Element typically has a channel limitation of either 250 channels or 500 channels. This channel limitation is ignored when an Element is Primary or Backup with an Element 2 or ETCnomad in Element 2 mode.

If an Element becomes the Master after losing connection to an Element 2 or ETCnomad in Element 2 mode, it will still have a system count of 1024 addresses, ignoring the typical Element channel limitation of 250 or 500 channels.
