Because of purchase issues and for some other reasons we dismissed purchasing RDM-Repeater from market and decided to make our own RDM Repeater.
I succeeded design isolated 10-48V DC 1to1 RDM-Repeater and have made some sample production, executed "OLA RDM Responder Test" as below setup:

my tests pass successfully up to 5 cascaded repeaters , it fails at 6th cascades.
here is the snap shot of signal after 5 cascaded Repeaters in both directions there is approx 8 us delay in both directions:
