I am wondering what is maximum number of robots connected to the ez builder at the same time?
I tried to look for the answer in the learn sections, but didn't find one.
Upgrade to ARC Pro

Thought you were joking about the 256, until I remembered that you have that many addresses available.
Only one can have a movement panel, and there are a handful of other limitations, but yeah, the software supports adding 249 additional connections using the "EZ-B Connections +" control.
Obviously they need to be in client mode so they are all on the same network, although they don't technically all need to be in the same subnet.
The limit when using the ARC/Project is 5.
ARC tracks EZBs from 0 to 4 (Connection Panel) and the value is validated when used in a script command.
Like alan said, there are some limitations:
only one Movement Panel and needs to be on EZB 0
Some commands allow a parameter boardindex
other commands mention a parameter ezb Index
and other commands allow to combine board "." port
via SDK there is no limit, you can create multiple EZB instances.
No, it isn't. See the "ARC Connection +" object. You can add another 249 connections from it in one project).
You are right... I didn't know about that control.
i just checked, i added more connections and the limit is 260 (0..259)
It's good to know... Is insane no one can't complain now !
Let's wait for the first project with 260 EZBs !
192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 = (65536 - 2) hosts
or if you want to go BIG!
10.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 = (16,777,216 - 2) hosts
but other issues will surface, router support, wifi congestion...
if someone creates a project like that deserves a prize no ?
(Sorry for not knwoing your username. It's kind of confusing)
Why only one can have the movement panel?
I was wondering why is the number 249 or 256?
Are these numbers the restrictions set by the ARC?
I think what you said was just for the case that everything is under one private network.
What if all the ezbs are in client mode with different network?
Say I have one ARC installed in one PC, and I want it to remotely connect with ezbs from outside.
Thus, I believe the restrictions are only from the ARC itself, the system where the ARC is running, and the bandwidth of it.
You can have:
1) Multiple ARC's instances running on the same machine.
2) 260 x EZB controllers per ARC's project
3) Each EZB controller (Client Mode) on a different network, as long as both ends ARC and the EZB are able to communicate.
