    you can put a maximum of 10 EXN3500 (with HDDs) into a single stack (daisy-chain cableing).

    If you have a N6240 (this is a FAS3240) then you can connect a maximum of 25 shelves in sum.

    If you have a FAS6240 you can connect a maximum of 100 shelves in sum.

    The limit per stack is always at 10 shelves.
