hi everyone, just asking for a bit of advice on the best way to wire up the “soon to arrive” DS18B20 sensors to my system.
i have 3x EmonTx v3.4’s in my Fuse box ( monitoring every circuit seperately) so i need to run a cable or 6 from the fuse box to the ceiling and hence to each room.
should i daisy chain 1 wire for all 6 sensors and just hook into the screw terminal of 1 of the EmonTx’s, or bring each individual sensor down with 3 into the screw terminals of each, and terminate the other 3 with RJ45’s?
or some variation on this?
the run for the individual would be approx 2 x 21m, 1 x 19m, 1 x 15m, 1 x 8m, 1 x 3m
the daisy chain would be approx 40m when counting down and back up walls from sensors.
if i ran all individuals and had 1 on a screw terminal and 1 on a rj45, would i need to modify the sketch of each Emontx, or would they just work?
Thanks in advance, Melv.
