Creating a 1-wire bus

Postby vanisher » Thu Feb 23, 2012 10:43 pm

What is the best method to create a one-wire bus with at least 14 DS18B20's with a Jeenode.
I want to measure the ingoing and outgoing temperature of the floorheating tubes.

What cable to use? Any best practices with connectors or something?

Soldering can be done but is not very flexible i'll guess.

The legs of a DS1820 fit nicely into RC servo connectors (Robbe brand, in my case):

This is not an official standard by Dallas or Maxim, it's a proposed one and it works perfectly for me. I use the 6-pin RJ-12 connections and colours so I don't get it confused with Ethernet :) but otherwise RJ-45 might well be better.

The Maxim site has some application notes about building a 1-wire bus, how to avoid reflections, that sort of thing.

Cheers, Steve

HA7Net ... _p_22.html

Works great with homeseer too.
Best regards, Verkenner

That's a Nice solution, but is there a low cost solution that works with domotiga?

Do they need to be programmable? I dont know if these are programmable, but if you need just temperature, I use a kit:
"PCsensor 1 wire miniLAN thermometer, 4 channels thermeter (1 W_D4)" from eBay -> link there is also a 8 sensor version: link
There is also a version that check humidity but I dont know if that is compatible, they use the same connectors but a different donge (I got the 'USB9097')
The seller is "chenmerhk" /website:

They use a standard 3,5" audio cable (with the standard audio 'jack' plugs) that you can get at any hardware or audio store.
I run Domotiga on a Raspberry Pi and interface them using digitemp (digitemp_DS9097U), simple, clean, cheap, no soldering required.
