According to installation sheet 990-3374 the Leak Sensor NBES0308 can be extended the total length up to 30.5 m (100 ft) using Leak Sensor extensions (NBES0309).
Thank you in advance

Here's the link to the install guide:
As it states clearly, the limit is 100 feet (not meters): You can not extend the leak rope farther than this.
Note: You can extend the total length of the Rope Leak Sensor up to 30.5 m (100 ft) using NetBotz 6.1-m (20-ft) Rope Leak Sensor Extensions (NBES0309).
If you need to go farther than this, you will either need another device or you can use spot leak sensors. A NetBotz appliance with sensor pods connected via A-link and cat-5 cables (with some pods powered) can extend up to 1000 meters as per k-base FA156085..
You can use 4-20mA sensors and any distance limitation would be based on the connected device. I have no product suggestions to make.

Can a second leak rope sensor be connected in one of the Sensor Ports, or is the Leak Rope sensor the only port where one can be installed?

there is only a single leak rope port in the current NetBotz offerings. You can add a spot leak but if you need more rope leak, you need a second unit. The “universal” sensor ports will not communicate with the leak rope.
