I believe the one I worked on years ago is still available. I don't like to promote products here so please contact me outside the forum .

Yes, it's still a good idea to use repeaters. Connecting all 170 of them on a single segment would be a terrible idea. Limiting each segment to about 32 devices is still a good rule of thumb for the reasons that Scott mentioned. But you can go higher under certain conditions (good cable, excellent connectors, etc.).

I'm counting individual contacts. 170 devices with 3 wires each (Data+, Data-, and Common) = 510 connections.
