Three hardpoint options, and however many hardwired options are allowed, it says how many in the codex.
A commander gets a pair per controller.*
It says under the tau armory.* It gives [me a smite if I tell you copyrighted rules again.]

ToastMaster, do NOT give away copyrighted materials, it's against forum rules and the law. Do it again and you'll be smote.

I thought only 1 drone controller is allowed per model.

All the Codex says is you have to fill all Hard Points, and that you cannot have more than one of the same weapon. It doesn't say you can't have three of the same equipment, it's just you normally wouldn't want to!

Im always so wrong!* Why do rules ruin everything?* Its too sad.* Anyway.* You could equip your whole suit with controllers, not exactly smart, but it would work.

No, you cannot.

Firstly this on page 17:

"A model may not have more than one of the same support system."

Secondly on page 20:

"No model may have more than 50 points of equipment from the armoury."

So in short you cannot have 2 of any support system and just 3 drone controllers from the hard wired alone with 2 gun drones each puts you well over 60 points breaking the 50 boundary. So it is not under any circumstances possible to have a drone armed suite.
