May I use one AvalonMiner Controller (including Raspberry Pi 1, 2, & 3) with mixed Canaan AvalonMiner A6, A721 & A741?

Controller means AvalonMiner Controller (including Raspberry Pi 1, 2, & 3) in this FAQ.

Canaan recommends that you connect different types of AvalonMiner product series to separate Controllers. So if you have 5 X A6, 10 X A721 and 7 X A741, you would connect the A6 to one Controller, the A721 to another Controller, and the A741 to yet another Controller. Technically you could connect the A721 and A741 to the same controller, but then the voltage offset will be the same for both the A721 and the A741 in your chain. Of course, each Controller can manage 20 AvalonMiners, so if you have more than 20 units, you need to plan your setup accordingly.
